Today brings the news that brand-new Pandora Disney Parks Spring 2018 charms have hit stores at Disney Parks across the globe! There’s only a small selection of charms, and these focus on Parks-specific Mickey/Minnie motifs – no new characters this time around, I’m afraid. These beads will not be sold in regular Pandora concept stores – they are exclusive to Disney Parks locations.
The pieces pictured here are now out in the Hong Kong, Disneyland Paris and Tokyo resorts and, I believe, will be out in US Disney parks next week. You can see them on the Tokyo Disneyland website. :)
On a side note, I am still catching up from a super busy week, both at my day job and on the blog, so I will get round to replying to all your lovely comments on the SS18 launch posts asap! :)
Pandora Disney Parks Spring 2018 release
The first is a Walt & Mickey charm, which has a lovely amount of detail, especially on the texturing of the suit. As usual, I feel the pavé on the bail is superfluous, but overall the silver is very detailed. It’s retailing for 49€.
The Disney Family charm is a reimagination of the classic Pandora Family Ties charm, but with cute black enamel Mickey hats on all the little characters instead! It’s 49€. The Disney Mom charm is cute with its red enamel bow. I don’t mind the CZ on the bail so much with this one, seeing as it brings out detailing in the charm itself. This is 65€.
The other exciting news for charms is that the Duffy and Shellie May charms, previously exclusive to the Disney Parks in Hong Kong, are getting a wider release this season! They’ll now be available in Paris, the US, etc, which make them so much easier to get hold of. They are 59€ each.
However, the most exciting of the selection for me is this Disney Parks bangle! It has the iconic castle logo on the clasp and Where Dreams Come True engraved on it. How amazing would this be as a Disney Parks souvenir? You can purchase this for 89€.
Finally, an additional release is this Hong Kong Disneyland exclusive, which has HK Disneyland written on the other side!
You can see the other side of it in this Instagram shot, along with some of the other beads:
Finally, here are a couple of live shots that have been posted online:
The following three charms have been released in Disneyland Paris for Spring, also. The first two are apparently due to remain Disneyland Paris exclusives, but the Mickey & Minnie Dance charm is coming out in Disneyland Hong Kong this season as well. Whether it appears in other regions as well remains to be seen.
None of these are must-haves for me, but I do love the bangle design and would be very tempted by it if I were to go to Disneyland Paris again! It’s true that I’m mulling the idea of doing a dedicated Disney bracelet, but I think that I’d want to use a traditional charm bracelet for that rather than a bangle.
I’m sorry that I wasn’t able to preview these in advance – as many of you will know already, the Disney line is currently embargoed by Pandora in terms of Mora Pandora previews. I am trying to see if there is wiggle room on this. There are a couple more Disney Parks charms coming out later this season, but until I get clarification with Pandora on where I stand with Disney previews, I’ll hang off on posting these.
What do you think of these latest Disney Parks offerings? Do any tempt you?
