This past summer while visiting NYC, I was disappointed to learn that Disney's 5th Ave location has closed. It wasn't until my nephew told me that they weren't closed for good, just relocating to another part of the city that I felt a little bit better. So for all of you Disney fans out there, Disney has just reopened it doors at 1540 Broadway that was previously home to a giant Virgin Megastore. After closing their store on 5th Ave last year, this is Disney’s attempt to re-invent itself in the retail world. This place is every child’s dream with its life size interactive Disney princess castle and children’s theatre that will entertain kids with movies and house some very exciting celebrity appearances. About the project, one of Disney's reps states, "Bringing Disney store to the center of Times Square is a monumental achievement, and we have created a retail experience that complements the energy and innovation that Times Square inspires”. This is the second venture Disney has taken on in Times Square with their renovation of The New Amsterdam theatre into the Disney Theatre in the 1990’s.The Times Square grand opening will be the largest Disney store in existence to date. The location will feature two floors and will be open seven days a week from 9am until midnight. I can only imagine the late night hours were created so all of us without kids can go check out the princess castle without shame." Go Disney!!!

The Cinderella Company was recently approached by Director Richard Bosner of Blue Creek Pictures. He and producer Barret Hacia are currently filming a micro-budget film this winter, and my wonderful performer Jena Hunt has the starring role. Falling Uphill is a romantic comedy scheduled for next year. Jena's character plays a 20 something woman living and working in San Francisco. If you haven't figured how The Cinderella Company fits into the equation, the character's day job is that of a princess performer for a children's entertainment company called, The Cinderella Company. How exciting is this?
I hope that everyone has had a chance to see Disney's Tangeled movie. I was able to take my daughter just after it opened; I have to say it is a very cute movie and love the music. Anyway after several months of planning, my seamstress and wig designer were able to work their magic once again. This dress has quite a bit of lace, embroidery and crystals added to it, whereas the 5 foot wig is constructed out of a main base with two sets of extensions added to it. I hope that everyone likes it. Leslie is featured in the photo.
