Disney Store Celebrates Opening of Newly Designed Store at Perimeter Mall

I love everything Disney...it just makes me feel youthful, fun and carefree, and the thought of pixie dust puts a smile on my face! I've passed the excitement on to my children and although we don't live that close to any of the Disney Parks, I make up for it by allowing them to visit the Disney Store for a little of the contagious magic! I was so excited to hear that Disney Store was opening the newly designed store at Perimeter Mall in Atlanta, Georgia, on Wednesday, March 30, 2011. This will be the first of many newly designed Disney Stores to open in 2011 {Picking Atlanta first was a great choice}! What's even more awesome is that Jodi Benson, the legendary voice of Ariel, from Disney's The Little Mermaid, will join Atlanta families in celebrating the new store opening.
