GLENDALE, Calif. --(Business Wire)-- Nov. 17, 2005 Disney Store (NASDAQ: PLCE) - On the day after Thanksgiving, holiday shoppers nationwide will rise before dawn to save big money by taking advantage of Black Friday sales and incentives for early-bird shoppers. Known as "Black Friday" because it typically shifts retailers into profitability, or "in the black," it's one of the most popular shopping days of the year.

Most Disney Stores will mark Black Friday by opening at 5 a.m., with 20 percent off on everything in stores until 10 a.m. Disney Store will continue to offer exclusives and specials throughout Thanksgiving weekend, including a variety of "under $10" gift items for all ages. Most Disney Stores will offer a free DVD with any $75 purchase while supplies last (guests can select Cinderella Platinum, Bambi, The Incredibles, Pacifier or National Treasure).

"This year, Black Friday represents more than just a busy shopping day," said Marshal Cohen, senior analyst with NPD Group. "The early bird will truly catch the worm by taking advantage of major savings and incentives from some great retailers, including Disney Store. Wise shoppers will find top name brands and high quality at significant savings, and they won't have to settle for cheap imitators later in the season."

Hot gifts at Disney Store this season include toys, apparel and accessories inspired by Disney Princesses, Toy Story and the new pint-sized Disney hero, Chicken Little. Disney Store offers the widest selection of Chicken Little merchandise available anywhere, including Chicken Little plush toys and action figures, a Chicken Little baseball set and the Cluckmobile, a snazzy, kid-friendly remote control car. Disney Store also has the most complete selection of Disney Princess items, with a full line of Disney Princess dolls, toys and activity sets. Character-themed pajamas, apparel, plush items, home decor items and snowglobes also are expected to be hot holiday gifts.

"Disney Store is ready to help our guests jump-start their holiday shopping with great deals and incentives while supplies are still plentiful," said Mario Ciampi, president of Disney Store. "As always, our cast members will be there to assist guests during this busy shopping season. Our goal is to offer great gifts for all ages, making Disney Store a very special one-stop shopping destination for families."
