This was magical indeed for Chandler mouseketeers — that’s when the long-awaited Disney Store opened at Chandler Fashion Center. Click here or on the image at left to see more photos of the grand opening by East Valley Tribune photographer Tim Hacker.
The store is one of the first half-dozen locations in North America to feature the chain’s new design concepts — and the only one in Arizona to do so. It’s on the upper level in the Macy’s wing of the mall.
The first 100 guests on Wednesday received free Mickey Mouse ears, and 10 percent of the store’s first-day sales were pledged to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
