The Mirror Realm is what is known as a "hub" realm, a place where countless different universes can be accessed. Physically, the Mirror realm is dark blue/black void filled with countless mirrors of countless sizes and makes, ranging from ornate french vanity mirrors to broken shards of glass. Gravity is subjective in this realm; if you believe you are on solid ground, you can walk about freely; if you think there is no floor, you will fall in the void forever; Going up and down is as simple as imagining stairs and walking up and down them; inanimate objects simply float in space unless disturbed.
This basically means that if you enter the mirror realm then leave, you'll still be able to use a mirror to get back to it. The energy eventually wears off though, usually in a few hours, so don't dawdle too long or you may be stuck in some parallel reality.
The most famous occurrence was the Bermuda Triangle, where a mortal to the mirror realms opened up on the reflective surface of the water, sucking in numerous boats and planes until it was sealed by Adrain Eldrich .
The Mirror Realms are inhabited; not only are there travelers from other universe wandering around it, but natural species as well; these creatures are incredibly rare, extremely bizarre, and usually quite lethal, and are best avoided (Of course the John Smith Society and MERLIN seek them out, cause they're kind of crazy like that). Most of these creatures can leave the mirrors as will, and often hunt prey on other worlds.
That doesn't stop some people though; Omega has often attacked Earth through the Mirror Realms, with limited success, and The Red King is considering using the Mirror Realms to find a metaman Eden, a failsafe in case his war with humanity goes south.

In fact, I wouldn't mind seeing the canonical HED's take on Mirror Realms.
