Photos/Videos: Disney Delivers Princesses, ‘Pan Am’ and Muppets to Fashion’s Night Out

Christina Ricci and Karine Vanasse - Lisa Perry 'Pan Am' Fashion's Night Out Event

With exception to the Fashion Week-long ‘In-Flight Experience‘ from ABC’s ‘Pan Am’ which we shared yesterday, last night’s epic third annual Fashion’s Night Out event had me running cabbing uptown and downtown, east side and west side throughout Manhattan in an attempt to catch everything I could Disney. From Disney Store, who participated for the first time, to Lisa Perry hosting ‘Pan Am’ to Opening Ceremony’s Muppet X collection with Miss Piggy, it was all one huge thrill ride of ‘E Ticket’ proportions (bad airline/Disney theme park double entendre-intended).

Report: ABC’s ‘Pan Am’ Welcomes New Yorkers to the Jet Age

'Pan Am' In-Flight Experience in New York City

Today saw the first day of the return of Pan Am to the Big Apple in twenty years as ABC brought its upcoming drama of the same name to the streets of Manhattan to promote the show during New York’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.

The ‘In-Flight Experience’ was initially scheduled to take place at Lincoln Center, but an unexpected blip in the radar caused a temporary re-routing to Columbus Circle where Pan Am ‘stewardesses’ are offering up free coffee and tea to commuters and tourists alike. Still, despite the change in flight plans, stewardesses could be found trekking in perfect formation between Columbus Circle and Lincoln Center, where they were handing out official ‘Pan Am’ track bags along with the occasional coveted ‘Pan Am’ Explorer bag to the fortunate few who found a ‘boarding pass’ in their track bag.
