Maybe those of us who didn't get tickets should go in anyway and visit the store after the D23 event. LOL!

I feel the same; the one NYC D23 event and complete fail for me. So annoying.

Happy for those who are going, but I get a ping of frustration each time I hear of someone else going.

*especially* when it's the same people who go to each and every D23 event anywhere. *ducks*

Another opportunity - albeit a limited one. Disney announced yesterday that they are having a contest to find one family to open the Times Square Disney Store.

Here are the details from Disney's official press release.

Quote:
Disney Launches Online Search for Child to “Unlock Imagination” at Disney Store in Times Square


One Week Only to Enter Disney's Family.com Sweepstakes for a Chance to Win Ultimate New York Prize Package

Disney announces an online contest on Family.com to win a trip to the grand opening celebration of Disney Store's Times Square, New York City location on November 9 and a starring role during the star-studded opening ceremony. The crown jewel of Disney Store's slate of store openings around the world this year, the Times Square location will be celebrated with magical festivities including celebrity appearances, live musical performances, a parade of Disney's most beloved characters and interactive experiences storewide. Beginning October 19, Disney fans will have just one week to register online for the chance to join the fun in-person, win a $250 shopping spree, and have the distinction of their child taking the stage to turn the key to imagination and officially unlock the all-new Disney Store in Times Square. The lucky family will also meet award winning singer Jordin Sparks during a private VIP reception after she performs Disney's "Beauty and the Beast" theme song, which she rerecorded to celebrate the 2010 release of the Blu-Ray and DVD.

To participate, families should visit www.Family.com/sweeps/disney-store between October 19-26 and register for Family.com's Disney Store Times Square Grand Opening Sweepstakes. Details will also be shared on Disney Store's Facebook page and through its Twitter feed. One lucky family of four will be notified on October 27 and then set to pack their bags for a 3-day/2-night trip to New York City (November 8-10). See www.Family.com for complete details and official rules.

The lucky winners will join VIPs, celebrities, tourists from around the world and New York guests in exploring the magical new store. Centerpieces include:

• Two-story Disney Princess Castle complete with its "talking" Magic Mirror
• Colorful Lucite trees spring up throughout the store, showcasing custom Disney content
• Disney-Pixar CARS-branded Ridemakerz interactive custom car building experience
• Disney Store Theatre that allows guests to customize their experience by selecting their favorite Disney film clips, videos, classic animation and more

Does anyone know when the store will be open to the public? Also, it would have been nice to give the special 20% off coupon to all the d23 members and not just those lucky enough to get tickets.

I emailed D23 asking what time the store opened to the public. They said the opening time has not been decided. I would assume its 10AM.

I think there's enough demand to try to have a DISers meet there. The way I feel right now after the D23 fiasco, I'm in no rush to run over there for the opening.

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

Does that mean the general public cannot get in on the 7th?

I'm sure Nov 7 & 8 will be "soft openings" with Nov 9 being the big day.

However, Nov 7 is also when the NYC marathon comes through so Times Sq will be a mess!

I dont think the Marathon runs through Times Square. So there will be no street closures. I plan on being out of there before 1PM.

Here's the map of the NYC Marathon:

Nah, I wasn't really interested on going Nov 7th, especially with the marathon.

The marathoners are supposed to be having some sort of party afterwards. Which means alot more people packed into Times Sq than normal. Which means it'll be a mess.

I'm thinking either to go in a the soft openings or wait until the weekend after. And there better be Vinylmations left!!! LOL.

I also want to go in to see Elf the Musical, so I may try to combine all these things.

It is supposed to open on 1pm on Nov 9th to the general public.

There are celebrations starting at 9am, but don't know what that means - perhaps senior management & press tour. ??

If those Vinyls are not out for the D23 event, again, I will be upset. If anyone can find out that would be great!
