Breaking news tonight/this morning as Pandora has officially announced their collaboration with the Walt Disney Company to bring their beloved characters to charm fans! Pandora Disney beads have long been requested by customers but previously only Chamilia had produced licensed Disney European style charms. The initial release is scheduled for early November, to be available at North American Pandora Concept stores and Disney properties; specifically at the Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland Resort, Disney Vacation Club properties and Disney Cruise Line ships.
The collection will include silver and two-tone pieces including 25 designs and an additional 16 charms that will be exclusive to the Disney theme parks or the Disney Store online. The characters will include at least Mickey and Minnie Mouse, among other famous characters for sure. Pandora will be holding previews for their retail partners the week of September 8th, so I’m excited to hear more about this collection. This will be Pandora’s third licensed products this year and will only be available in the US, Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Central America and the Caribbean.
It’s uncertain whether Chamilia will also continue producing Disney charms as the licenses are not exclusive to one company but they have none planned for the rest of the year. The ones they currently make are still going to be sold so I can only speculate as to the future between Disney and Chamilia. Are you excited about this partnership as I am? What characters would you like to see Pandora come out with?
