The store has been themed to promise visitors ‘the best 30 minutes of their day,’ with a Pixie Dust Path lined with trees that comes to life with fresh green leaves in the summer, turning red and brown in the autumn.

Seven Disney Princesses make an appearance in the Magic Mirror in the Disney Princess Castle, while the Disney Skyline that surrounds the perimeter of the store includes landmarks from around the world that have featured in Disney films, such as Big Ben and Notre Dame.

“We’re thrilled to bring an extra sprinkling of pixie dust to Disney Store Sunderland,” said Teresa Tideman, joint managing director of Disney Stores Europe.”
