The Pandora Disney Collection debuted a few weeks ago, and I haven’t been this excited and eager for a Pandora release for quite a while now. I loved almost all the designs from seeing them in the previews so I knew I was going to be devoting a significant amount of my budget towards these charms. After my husband started me on a few beads for my birthday, I went ahead and completed it for my first Pandora Disney bracelet. I liked the black, red, and white theme so I decided to stick with that and didn’t get the Mickey Sparkling Snowflake or Cinderella’s Sparkling Slipper. I am so happy with this combination and can’t wait to see what else Pandora comes out with!
Of the Pandora Disney Parks Exclusives, I was able to purchase all of them online at the Disney Store except Magical Day Mickey and Peace, Love, & Mickey since they didn’t appeal to me. I added the Parks exclusives to my new You’re A Star pavé bangle added with the Chamilia Mickey and Minnie locks. I love this look and can’t wait to get the Disney Cruise ship and Aulani charms (which are only available through those properties).
When I received my order of the Magical Kingdom bracelet along with the charms, I was dismayed to find that the bracelet size was incorrect. Apparently this has been a common problem, and an incredibly disappointing one as the company is all sold out of them (both online and in store) so they cannot exchange them for the correct size. Many of the exclusive charms are also out of stock and rumor is that Disney sold a predicted 6 month supply in less than week! So for those of you waiting until the holidays to purchase these charms, I’d start to keep a look out for them now. The most popular beads seem to be Sorcerer’s Hat, Minnie’s Sparkling Hat, and Mickey Mania. They’re being listed on eBay for high markups and it doesn’t seem quite fair that people are buying charms just to flip them and make a profit.
This hiccup aside, I’m ecstatic over my Disney bracelets and I’ve been wearing them constantly since I’ve finished them. Have you gotten any of the Disney beads? Which ones are on your wish list?
