Disney has always been an inspiration to me. Growing up with all the characters and watching movie after movie as a child inspired tons of creativity and the interest in art and design. Although I never set the goal to work for Disney, visiting the various Disney theme parks and retail outlets has definitely been source of happy memory making. I remember as a kid I would go to the Disney store just to check out all the cool Goofy themed goodies…
In Colorado we are definitely not close enough to visit the Magic Kingdom any time we want. The new Disney Store concept aims to bring that experience just a tiny bit closer with it's interactive activities and entertainment theater. It's a little piece of Disney magic.
