** Updated 7/28/16: event time changes for August 2016 **
With all of the hot & humid days lately, we’ve been seeking entertainment indoors. One of our new favorites? Attending the free events offered at The Disney Store. These include story times, trivia, learning how to draw animated Disney characters, a parade, and more. Truly perfect for almost any age. Even our toddler was into drawing BB-8 during a recent Art of Animation event.
Daily event schedule
Monday 11:00a (changing to noon in August)
Thursday 11:00a (2p and 6p in August)
Check the Events Calendar on the Crabtree Valley Mall website for specific event scheduled each day and to verify times: http://crabtree-valley-mall.com/events
Extra bonus between now and September 5th, kids will receive a free Tsum Tsum wristband* just for participating in an event. Check the schedule below to find your favorite character.
TIP: are your kids up and going early? Head out early and arrive at the mall slightly before the 10am opening of most stores (noon on Sundays). Then hang out in front of the Disney Store. One child gets to assist with the magical store opening each morning.
Looking for more entertainment while visiting Crabtree? Cross over to the LEGO store to check out the latest sets and play with select LEGO & DUPLO blocks. Head to the play area in front of Sears to burn energy. Be sure to pack a few quarters if the kids want to try the electronic rides. And don’t forget to take a peek at the World’s Largest Gummy Bear!
