I was honored to be invited to the unveiling of the FIRST Disney Baby Store today at the Americana in Glendale, CA. When Disney puts on an event you can bet it is going to be SPECTACULAR! I brought along Little Man as well as my mother in law (aka on call Nanny) to join in on the festivities. Upon arriving I was floored at the set up. I knew it would be a big event but I had no idea it would be THIS big of an event. They had taken over the entire lawn area with white tents, beautifully decorated tables and chairs, multiple buffet tables filled with scrumptious foods, a stage decorated like a fairy forest, and different booths showing off the multiple products the new Disney Baby Store carries.
Little Man enjoyed coloring on his future baby siblings onesie and fishing at their makeshift pond.
He was memorized by the guest band “Blue Sky Riders,” which included legend Kenny Loggins, and kept wanting to go on stage to play his guitar (he’s a tad obsessed with musical instruments).
But Little Man’s favorite thing of all was meeting Tigger and Eeyore. He even wore his Tigger outfit for the occassion.
The store unveiling was done by celebrity host Alison Sweeney and her adorable children. Walking in I felt like I had entered a magical wonderland! As Little Man made a beeline for the Nemo and Cars products I looked longingly at the pretty princess dresses and wondered if baby #2 just may end up being the little girl that would watch Sleeping Beauty on repeat like her mommy before her.
All in all I would say the Disney Baby Store is practically perfect in every way!
