M – I – C – K – E – Y M – O – U – S – E! In honor of Disney’s John Carter opening today, I’m wearing my Mickey Mouse Club t-shirt I bought when I worked at The Disney Store. The boys and I are traveling to the IMAX in Raleigh to see Edgar Rice Burroughs’ creation.
Yes I worked for almost three fun years at The Disney Store when there was one here in Greensboro at the Four Seasons Mall. After The Children’s Place bought the stores, I quit because I didn’t want to be an employee of The Chidren’s Place. I wanted to be a Disney Cast Member! The perks you get working for Disney are really cool and make up for the minumum wage pay. 50% off Disney resort reservations. Discounts on park tickets. Employee discount on merchandise. I really liked it. The Children’s Place eventually sold the Disney Stores back to Disney, but during the time they owned them, the store in Greensboro was closed down. I would love to see The Disney Store return to Greensboro.
