Alex and Ani Disney Collection Review

alexani-disney-coverIn anticipation of our family trip to Disney World, I stocked up on my Disney memorabilia including my Chamilia Disney charms and bangles from the Alex and Ani Disney Collection!  Introduced late last year, Alex and Ani released a few Disney designs including a line of Mickey birthstone bracelets.  The other medallions feature Mickey Mouse, mouse ears, Cinderella, and Cinderella’s Castle.  These are available in Rafaelian gold and silver finish, and are a bit pricier because of the licensing costs at $39.95 and $31.95 for the birthstones.

The Alex and Ani Disney bangles are truly exclusive to Disney as they’re only sold at the Disney Store or at the Disney theme parks.  I got a few during a free shipping weekend on their website and I’m so happy with these that I got a few more while I was visiting (when I finally found them).  I adore Mickey and Minnie so had to get their ear silhouettes; these are quite popular as souvenirs and I remember getting one as a kid when I visited Disneyland.  The detailing is made with enamel and has been relatively resilient although I haven’t worn these extensively yet.  I also couldn’t resist the Cinderella’s Castle bangle, since it’s such an icon and symbolic for the company and they have one for Disneyland and Disney World which I didn’t realize until now.

It’s hard to just have one of Alex and Ani since they stack so well together – I generally wear at least 5 at a time and they’re light and thin so they don’t feel cumbersome.  The jingle of the charms are utterly irresistible and the chiming always brings a smile to my face.  This brand has been a growing addiction for me and all the new releases are not helping at all! 😉  Do you like their Disney designs?

    I have several Disney Alex and Ani’s, including the Disneyland one featuring Sleeping Beauty’s castle and the Disney World one featuring Cinderella’s Castle. Yes, they are different castles!! 🙂

      For some reason I didn’t notice the difference even though the one obvious says “Disneyland”, LOL. I just noticed when I was looking at their selection at Disney World, and of course I had to get it ;).

    Love this collection. It’s the reason why I plan on venturing into the other Alex and Ani designs. I only have three bangles at the moment, which happen to be the same Disney ones you have pictured, though I have the Mickey and Minnie in gold finish. I agree with you: the jingling is so delightful and stacking many is a must! I’ll definitely get the rest of the Disney collection once my budget allows. And have fun at Disney World! 🙂

      Thanks! Their designs are great, I just wish they were easier to buy for me ;).

    I’ll be headed down to the Disneyworld area in October for a wedding (not mine! *g*) now I know what I’m picking for souvenirs!

    Oh, and I have that beaded bangle – absolutely love it! A&A are quickly becoming a favorite of mine….

      Awesome, aren’t they so cute? I hope you can find them, I haven’t searched for them at Disneyland but I hope they’ll be easier to find than at Disney World! 😉
