I wonder if he/she is coming on the cruise with us
Yes, I am. ;)

I didn't want to approach him as he would have thought I was some sort of weird stalker

From my understanding, some select Disney Visa cardholders (I do have a Disney Visa so I'm not sure why I didn't get one) got a postcard in the mail inviting them to go to the store starting Nov. 4th. Has anyone, who will be working there had confirmation that there will indeed by a soft-opening for the public starting Nov. 4th?

I got the card and the wording was "Opening on 11/4". So they didn't make it sound like it was a special offer besides the discount and pin (while supplies last).
Why don't you contact your Disney Visa and ask why you didn't get the card? Maybe it was being sent to targeted people, but it could be that yours was just lost in the mail.

Thanks - I don't really mind that I didn't get one, I just wanted clarification if we could actually go there starting Nov. 4th. I would assume since you did in fact get the postcard and that was the actual wording, they will be allowing the public in before the "opening celebration" on Nov. 9th.

I just noticed something about the D23 event on Sunday. I knew that Jodi Benson was appearing, but I just noticed that there will be 100 Ariel Prints available for her to sign.
From D23
Quote:
Jodi Benson, voice of Ariel, will be on hand to sign the Ariel print Certificate of Authenticities. 100 of the Ariel Prints will be available.
I wonder if that is any indication of the number of tickets that were available for the event? Certainly not everyone will purchase a print (since they cost $129.50), but could we estimate the crowd based on number of prints available? If half the people are expected to buy the print, then 200 people were allowed in. If only 10% of people are expected to buy the print, that's still only 1,000 people that would be able to get into the event. Not really a whole lot...

Hey Everyone, I was inspired by your comments on the thread to write a blog about the opening of the Times Square store. Feel free to add comments about your experience with the D23 event, etc. on the article.

Mouse Skywalker - The link to post comments on the blog (to login) does not work properly. It takes you to the WordPress login and that doesn't accept our DISboards credentials.

I am a Disney Visa card holder and live in NYC, I haven't gotten the postcard yet, but I hope I do! The facade looks great, we walked through Times Square on Sunday to see it, I'm really looking forward to going to the store!

The store site is quite small in comparison to the Fifth Avenue store so I'm not surprised there were so few tickets available and many were left out.

We were at the Fifth Avenue opening many moons ago. I'm thinking we had an invite because we were Magic King Club members or stockholders (there were soooo many of each back then).

I hope everybody who gets to go has a great time and lets us know what kind of merchandise they have.

I hope it's not "trot out the same cr*p" as every other Disney store, but possibly bring back the gallery and unique items.

Don't know about the other two, but you are going to love Mary Poppins. I need to see it again.

Employees

Are employees of the new Disney store actual CM's? Do they have all the same rights and discounts that a CM in Florida does? I know at one time they were Children's place employees.

Does anyone know if the store is going to be open to the general public on the 7th? Or are they closing it off and just having the D23 event?

Everything I've heard is the store will be open to the public on Tuesday, Nov 9th. The D23 event is on Sunday, Nov 7th, and then they are having media tours on Monday, Nov 8th. I guess there's a chance there might be some sort of soft opening, but I wouldn't count on it.

I know the grand opening is on the 9th and I heard soft opening on the 4th. I decided not to try to get D23 tickets because I didn't think I would get off of work- so of course, I did end up not scheduled that day. I was going to try a fun day in NYC, but I'd rather be able to do it when I can check out the new Disney Store. Oh well, I'll work something out soon.

Thanks for the help!
