The first Disney Baby Store arrived yesterday at the Americana at Brand in Glendale, California.  Celebrities, new moms and Disney characters were all on hand to celebrate! The premiere Disney Baby Store provides an exclusive array of products to help families celebrate baby's magical moments throughout the day. Magical Moments are highlighted throughout the store with playtime, bathtime, on-the-go, getting ready, mealtime, dressing baby, baby's firsts, and in the nursery.  In addition to the first store, the Disney Baby online boutique launched yesterday and a selection of Disney Baby products is also available within Disney Store locations nationwide.

The celebration moved to the lawn of the Americana at Brand, where the Magical Moments Festival was just getting started. Everyone had a ball playing baby shower games and winning awesome prizes.

One of the highlights of the day was a performance by Blue Sky Riders (comprised of members Kenny Loggins, Georgia Middleman and Gary Burr). The band performed songs from their upcoming album as well as the Kenny Loggins classic "House at Pooh Corner" in honor of the Disney Baby Store opening.  Blue Sky Riders

 Our special guests for the day were more than 20 expectant military moms with Operation Shower, a non-profit organization that supports military families by hosting baby showers to ease the stress of deployment. Disney teamed with Operation Shower to honor the new moms and their families by treating them to a magical baby shower and complimentary shopping experience in the new store.

Thotful Spot on Winnie the Pooh Storytime

By Official Disney Store Blogger, Jul 13, 2011 9:00 AM

Hello, friends! This past weekend, our stores had ounces of bounces of fun with our favorite rumbly, tumbly bear, Winnie the Pooh! In celebration of everyone's favorite bear, Disney Stores across the country hosted an extra special Winnie the Pooh Storytime. Were you a part of it?  

Cast Members shared the fun tale of Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore and the rest of the Hundred Acre Wood.  Here are some photos of all of the fun!



If you missed out on this event, don't worry we will have many more just like this! Look out for more in-store events at on the In-Store Events page.
