This place does not disappoint until you get to the cash register, BUT it’s amazing! My two girls could hardly believe their eyes it was so overwhelmingly awesome. There’s two floors of perfectly laid out American Girl merchandise—perfect for getting the right doll.

I took my 13th year old daughter here for her birthday. She had her doll's ears pierced and we enjoyed a snack at the counter. The store is HUGE and even if you're not into dolls, it's amazing to see.

A F-150 is just a truck parking shouldn’t be a issue there are all types of vehicles in the parking ramps. The spots in my opinion are small & expensive but you should fit.

American Girl Place- Chicago (5 Replies)
Taking my 12 year daughter to AG in Chicago in June 2007. Made reservations at the InterContintental with an AG package.(doll bed and AG magazine and books and cookies and milk) for $239/night in the historic tower. Any suggestions of things to do after we are finished with the AG store? We are there for 3 days.
