My girls, as most on my blog know, are princess obsessed. We own half of the Disney Store Princess collection alone, because of this.
Seriously between the dresses, accessories (shoes, necklaces and more), dolls, toys and now even bedding (both girls have Princess Sofia comforter sets), we could open up our own Disney Princess store.
I recently went to the Disney Store in the last month to purchase costumes for my girls for Halloween. Emma, as most again know, was Princess Sofia and Lily was for all of the 20 minutes she wore the costume (she was so sick with a virus the poor thing that day) was Belle from Beauty and the Beast fame.
But when I purchased the costume, a flyer for a Disney Store featured event was thrown in my bag for good measure.
The event wasn’t to be held until Saturday, November 16th from 10:30 am to 1:30 pm. And it was in honor of Princess Sofia’s (the first) newest Disney Channel movie to air on Sunday, November 24th for the first time.
The movie features Princess Sofia (of course), but also Ariel of the Little Mermaid movie.
So, it was to be a full on celebration for the new feature film.
Well, the day arrived and I totally lost the flyer (that is why I have no pictures of it here), but thankfully remembered that it was that day. I called the store and confirmed that the party was indeed taking place that day.
We packed the kids in the car and headed to the Disney Store with the girls dressed up with their Princess Sofia amulets and their Princess Sofia plush dolls coming along for the celebration, too.
When we got to the store, the back was where the event was being held. A Disney Store employee was handing out laminated underwater scene placemats (for Ariel) with sticker sheets (they gave the girls each a second sheet to decorate the back as per their request) that could be stuck on the placemats with all sorts of stickers from Sofia and Ariel, too.
They also got cardboard paper amulets and crowns, as well.
Also, the clip from the new movie was playing, because after all the party was being held in honor of this movie.
All-in-all, we spent about an hour there and the girls had so much fun. The event didn’t cost us a cent and was totally worth it in my eyes.
My point here today is to share that sometimes you can have a ton of fun and not have to spend a dime.
In this day and age, when so much does cost and my kids toys and rooms, as stated earlier, can attest for this, it is nice to know that the store itself (after spending so much money there all year long), does give back in the way of free events such as this.
I totally will be taking my girls back for future free events and will be keeping my eye open now for them.
And if you have a Disney Store near you, I suggest you keep your eyes open, too, because from this experience I would totally give thumbs up to the Disney Store’s free kids’ events.
By the way, I was not compensated in the least for this article nor did Disney even contact me for this, but just felt compelled to finally share this it here with all here today.
