Disney Stores Host Free Family Halloween Party Costume Parade & Games Events Oct 21 & 22


According to National Retail Federation statistics, 46 million American children are already planning their costumes this Fall for Halloween 2011 with princesses (11%) as top kid costume for seven years in a row. Other popular family friendly boy and girl dress-up choices in the Top 10 for babies, toddlers, and school age youngsters are Spiderman (3.1%), Batman (2.4%), Superman (1.3%), fairies (2.6%), Disney Princesses (2.2%) and vampires (2.4%).  Responding to all the excitement about the upcoming holiday this year, local Disney Stores everywhere will be hosting free in-store Dress Rehearsal Pre Halloween Party events that include a special viewing of Rapunzel's welcoming ceremony, a costume parade and lots of fun kid games.

My own kids are teens now.  How I wish, though, that the Disney Store had been around when they were little. In fact, kids have loved Disney characters for more than a half century and my own children were no exception. When my triplets plus one more born within a year were toddlers in pre school, I spent hours hand sewing several foursomes of Disney costumes for them from patterns. One of my personal homemade favorites (and their's) is the coordinating Disney Toy Story costume outfits I made that you see above representing the film's characters left to right: Woody, Jessie, Buzz LightYear, and Bo Peep.

The Pre Halloween celebration event takes place Friday October 21 and Saturday October 22 at all its retail shops. There are two event sessions at every location on both days. The Friday Session 1 is at 4:30 pm and the Friday Session 2 is at 6 pm, while on Saturday there will be sessions starting at 10:30 am and at noon. In addition, each child that age 3+ who comes in their favorite costume to the event will receive a free gift. One gift per child, while supplies last.

Please note that there is a limit of 50 children per session per store. Also, no line-up is permitted prior to 30 minutes before event begins. The chain retailer says this event is subject to change or cancellation without notice and that events will take place at Disney Stores excluding Outlet locations. Calling your local store ahead of time to confirm participation is strongly suggested.
