Disney Sisters: Halloween BOOtique at the Disney Store

Halloween BOOtique at the Disney Store

Last Thursday night the stars came out and brought their children to the Disney Store in Santa Monica, CA. The Disney Store hosted a special Halloween BOOtique to showcase the new costumes. It was a not so scary night, that included story time, costume shopping and a surprise visit from Mickey! It was the Disney Sisters first time at the Santa Monica location, and also in the new style Disney Store "Imagination Park." We'll be posting more about that soon - It's really AMAZING!

We were also thrilled to see the new line of Costumes / Role Play outfits. You couldn't help but notice all of the designer gowns and duds hanging on all of the walls every where you turned. This however, wasn't the first time we have seen them. Our first glimpse of these magical creations was at the D23 Expo where we saw a Disney Halloween Costume Preview Parade. We were really impressed and couldn't wait for our kids to get a peek too.

The slogan that you see all over the Disney Store is "I am." I am a Princess. I am Sleeping Beauty. I am a Buzz Lightyear. As parents, we know that fantasy and role playing is such an important part of learning. The Disney Store is helping to engage children's imaginations, when they put on these ensembles they actually become the princess, or hero they want to be. They transform into their favorite Disney character from a movie, or story book. You can literally watch their body language change right before your eyes, when they put on the costume and see themselves in the mirror. They walk different, they talk different. It's pure Disney magic. For parents it brings some much joy to see your child's eyes light up when they become Cinderella, or Lightning McQueen.

One of our favorite parts of the night was watching each child pick out their costume. They took their time, they looked carefully at each one, until they finally found a perfect fit. It was very exciting, even the cast members were totally getting into it!

Jessica's daughter Kaia (4 years old) picked Minnie Mouse, she even wore the ears (which were very bedazzled) and she especially loved the mini high heels.

Becky's son Nick (tween) went straight for Captain Hook, and rocked the hat like a true Pirate, Arrr! He also enjoyed playing with the battery operated, noise making sword and hook accessories.
(Who wouldn't?)

But our kids weren't the only ones having a blast...
Our friend Caryn's (Rockin Mama) kids were adorable in their costumes.
Her daughter was Belle and her son Spiderman.

Joey Lawrence's (Whoa) daughters both choose the Little Mermaid costume.
Melissa & Joey on ABC Family.

Kyle Richard's daughter choose Rapunzel from Tangled. (We have a feeling this may be the most popular for this season)

Candace Cameron Bure's boys both picked Captains. One Captain Jack Sparrow, and the other Marvel character, Captain America. (yes they have Marvel too!)

Molly Ringwald brought her whole family out too. They were having a great time posing with Halloween Mickey. (And we were having a very Sixteen Candles moment - So Fun!)
For all you fans - Secret Life of an American Teenager  new season coming soon!

From infant to toddler, child to teen, they even have adult costumes. It sure makes getting into the holiday spirit as a family, fun. You can all coordinate and become characters with a similar theme, like Woody, Jessie and Buzz, or you can each be something unique. None of them are really scary, the only one that may frighten (if at all) is the Adult Maleficent Costume. (Which some little ones may find spooky - just because she is a villan) Each Disney Store has a large selection, and if you don't find something that you want in the store, or the right size you will definitely find it online.

As you can see the children were all adorable and had a lovely evening full of treats, no tricks. We can't wait until Mickey's Halloween Party at Disneyland where they will wear their new costumes. But we know they will also enjoy wearing them around the house too.
Did you know, The Disney Store is on Facebook? You can also follow the Disney Store on Twitter!

Full Disclosure: This is not paid a post. We were invited to this special media event. Thank you to the Disney Store for gifting us costumes and to all of the hard work that went into creating such a magical evening for everyone.
