It's finally happening: New York's Times Square will officially lose all of its street cred on November 9th, when a gigantic 25,000 square foot Disney store flings open its doors. Our sister site Racked NY says: "Inside the emporium, shoppers will find "an interactive Disney Princess castle" and, no doubt, plenty of paraphernalia in pink. Since the store is flanked by the high-tech MAC flagship and the mind-blowingly humongous Forever 21, tweeners of all ages will never want to leave this block." [RNY]
