Grand Re-opening of Disney Store Del Amo
The time has come for the Disney Store Del Amo, in Torrance CA, to finally re-open it's doors!
The Disney Store was previously located between Macy's and Old Navy but with the Del Amo mall being under construction and remodeling the entire mall it was time for the Disney Store to move to a different part of the new mall.
My son and I were invited to take part in this celebration and boy what a big celebration it was. There was a line of people waiting to see the magic and it was well worth the wait.
Once inside I'm sure you know what my son was on a mission to find, LOL. Anything that had to do with trains or construction. He found a train in the Planes section and immediately gave it to me to buy with our gift card. He picked up the train called Muir Train Blade Ranger from the new Planes Fire and Rescue Movie, coming July 18th.
We looked around to see what other things and features this new store has that it didn't in the past. There was a lot of girlie and princessy type toys, costume and decor. I was on the hunt for cool Maleficent items but they only had one t-shirt and one cup. We saw cool Jake and the Neverland Pirate toys, to which my son picked out a map toy to buy. We also saw Doctor McStuffins items, which is what my co-worker's daughters 1st birthday theme is, so I had to tell her about all the cute items when I returned to work.
There was also a new play area for the kids. I remember seeing this at the Disney Store in Santa Monica CA and in the Westfield Culver City Mall. It looks like a little forest but it has a movie screen showing trailers of different Disney movies and shows, a table and chairs, and coloring book items for kids to color while parents shop.
The staff was very helpful. We was helped by Janice there and I had to ask her if there were anymore train toys other than Muir. She showed us a set of Mickey House figurines that had engineer Mickey in it but we didn't get it. I do appreciate Janice knowing her Disney store items before opening day, shows that she knows her job and really enjoys working there. Go Janice!!
At check out we saw people holding up cut out Disney faces as flags to indicated when they were ready to ring you up at the register, cute touch.
Afterwards there was a Meet and Greet with Mickey and Minnie but we didn't go. The excitement was too much for my little engineer and he was too excited to check out his new toy Muir. Also we passed by the local AMC movie theater and it had a big advertisement for the new Planes movie and my son got really excited to go. I guess you know where we will be this summer, back to back viewings of the new Planes movie, lol.
The mall is still under construction so if you are use to going to the Del Amo mall you wont be able to find all of your favorite shops where there were previously located so check the maps when you arrive. Check out the new Disney Store, it gives you that Disneyland Magically feeling, but no rides of course, lol.
