Princess Tiana greets kids at Disney Store
On Saturday, CC joined what seemed like millions of kids at the Disney Store grand opening at Westfield Culver City Mall.
Princess Tiana from "The Princess and the Frog" was on hand with a big smile and a Southern drawl to welcome the kiddos. CC was a little shy, which is rare, but I think she was a tad overwhelmed. The turnout was pretty amazing.
I talked to one mother-daughter duo, who were the first ones in line and arrived at the store at 6:45 a.m. That's Disney dedication!
I also chatted with the Redondo Beach Disney Store manager Barbara Williams, who estimated the turnout to be anywhere from 1,000 to 5,000.
She also told me about the upcoming Pajama Party at Disney Stores nationwide on Friday, Nov. 20. Beginning at 5:30 p.m., kids can arrive at the store in their pajamas and join in games, goodies and story time.
