    So I read "Grand Opening of Disney Store" and "San Diego" and got pretty excited.
    A D23 event just minutes away from me!!!
    Then I read that the event was basically a tea party...
    I might go... but this doesn't seem like it's really my kinda gig.
    If nothing else, it'd be cool to check out the new Disney store and meet Paige O'Hara, I just hope the tea party isn't mandatory.

      Meeting Paige O'Hara has got me sold, but with a 2 hour drive to SD for me, I'm doubtful I'll make it haha

      It's nice though that they're able to do these smaller events (and also more frequent events) which members can attend.

      If you do go, do take pictures and tell us how the tea is

        I would go if I didn't have school. Guess I'll miss out on another D23 event.

          Oh man! I wish Paige o'Hara was at our grand opening!!
          Good morning, son
          In twenty years from now
          Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
          And I can tell you 'bout today
          And how I picked you up and everything changed
          It was pain
          Sunny days and rain
          I knew you'd feel the same things...

            See I feel like the tea thing would have been moderately acceptable if my girlfriend accompanied me, but she has school.
            I'm not going to do a tea party on my own haha.
            But I still am definitely going to go. I'll bring my camera and such.
            I won't be investing in a $125 tea set though.

              D23 E-mail registrations strikes again...
              You'd think they would've learned their lesson by now and found a better form of registration... nope.
              And just like Star Tours: The Final Flight... Every e-mail I've sent has been sent right back to me.

              EDIT: I discovered the problem. The e-mail address they posted was this: corp.d23.events@email.disney.com . The correct e-mail address is this: corp.d23events@email.disney.com

              Whoever posted the info, posted the wrong e-mail address. Luckily I sent one to the correct one and got a confirmation. I sent them an e-mail letting them know their error, but unless they fix this, looks like I'll be the only one hanging out with Paige. haha

                  I went to it. Didn't know if it was worth posting pics or not.
                  There's a decent article on it over at Stitch Kingdom:
                  Photo Gallery: Paige O’Hara Joins D23 Tea Party at Disney Store San Diego Grand Opening : Disney News : StitchKingdom.com

                  I thought I saw a better article elsewhere, but I couldn't find it.

                  The store really isn't as high-tech and innovative as I thought it would be.
                  And it certainly isn't any sort of future of retail stores.
                  However, it has some cool interactive experiences, and it beats the pants off any other Disney Stores I've been to.

                  -They have these trees throughout that projections play onto with various themes.
                  -There's a castle in the middle that you can walk through to get to a magic mirror. You can then wave a wand of your favorite princess in front of the mirror and she will appear in the mirror and speak to you.
                  -They have a giant screen that plays Disney clips, but instead of it being random, you can look through a library of clips and add your own clip to the queue to have it play.
                  -They're the first store to have a Ridemakerz area where you can create your own custom "Cars" car. A feature that will be coming to Ridemakerz in Downtown Disney soon.
                  -Using an iPod Touch, Store CMs can program in your name if you're celebrating anything, and it will appear on the big screen.
                  For example "Happy Birthday, Patrick!" And that will stay on the screen for a good 45 seconds so you can get a photo with it.
                  -They also have neat smaller features like Dumbo or Carl's house will occasionally appear in the sky inside the store.
                  -Another random event they have is where the villains come and take over the store (via projections on the trees and the screen).
                  Then everyone claps their hands and the heroes come to save the day lead by Tinkerbell spreading her pixie dust on the trees.

                  It's a cool store, worth checking out if you live in San Diego.
                  Don't drive down just to see it though.

                  I preordered the Beauty and the Beast DVD and got a cool Lithograph that I got signed by Paige O'Hara. So that was neat. There was also free food and drinks.
                  I went the following day also and get some free "Disney Store" Mickey ears.

                    Hey, thanks for posting your store experience. Sounds really interesting, and the pics on Stitchkingdom were so cute (good to see Paige [Belle] getting some face time... Jodi [Ariel] is pretty much everywhere these days).
