Disney’s Magical (Black) Friday Has Already Begun With Steals & Deals

I received a package last week. As you can see the magic began as soon as I opened the box (Disney is good like that ;-)). I received some goodies for the holidays that are currently part of Disney Store’s Magical Black Friday. Unlike most deals which start, well, on Friday, this one has already begun!

As of yesterday, Disney Store will offer select merchandise on sale beginning Monday, Nov. 19, exclusively at DisneyStore.com/magicalfridaydeals. This is the very first time they have ever done this. Every day leading up to “Magical Friday” (Black Friday) on Friday, Nov. 23.

Another fun addition to the holiday shopping season, DisneyStore.com was recently redesigned and features a new “Magical Message Video” option. Guests can now record and customize a special “Disney Magical Message” video to send along with their gift purchases for friends and family. Gift recipients will receive an email notifying them of a special delivery, then once the gift arrives at their door, a card will provide them a site URL and a personal ID where they can view their personal “Disney Magical Message” video.

Are you on Twitter? Now you can tweet your own Fairy Godmother! Disney Store’s Fairy Godmother Twitter concierge/personal shopping services will be available via Twitter to help guests find the perfect gift on “Magical Friday.” Chat live with Disney Store’s guest services team on Twitter with hash tag #FairyGodmother.

If you are planning on hitting the stores on Friday, more than 150 Disney Store locations will open at midnight or have extended hours on “Magical Friday” (Black Friday) in order to cater to night owls and early birds.

To top it off and in the spirit of giving (isn’t that what the holidays are all about?) Disney Store and Make-A-Wish® have partnered up again to share the magic of granting wishes to children around the globe. By the end of 2012 Disney will have donated more than $500,000 to Make-A-Wish® to help make wishes come true for deserving children.
