Today continues my series of catch-ups, with a look at the Pandora Disney Summer 2018 collection! While we haven’t seen a major Pandora Disney launch since the Spring, there have been a number of new Pandora Disney Parks charms released over the past few weeks. These are found in Disney theme parks locations, but not in regular Pandora stores.
I’m quite a fan of this little mini release, which offers a fun mixture of new character beads and more decorative designs based around popular Parks attractions to tide you over until the next major Pandora Disney launch in Autumn. Read on for a full overview and live shots! :)
Pandora Disney Summer 2018 collection
This first Pandora Disney Summer bead is the adorable Stella Lou dangle, which is exclusive to the Disney parks in HongKong. There are little Mickey silhouettes hidden away in her ears and her feet, as well, as a cute extra detail! She’s priced at $799 HKD.
She comes with the most adorable gift box, available while stocks last:
Another exclusive is this Shanghai Memories charm.The other beads are more widely available at Parks locations across the world. The first is the cheerful Happy Birthday button bead, priced at $75 USD. I prefer the cute cut-out star detailing around this next charm, which celebrates anyone making their first visit to the Disney Parks. It’s really the perfect souvenir charm. The My 1st Visit charm retails for $70 USD.Another of my favourites from this set is the Small World charm, which has three pastel enamel faces to it. So cute!
You can get a feel for how the various enamel shades look like in these shots from @disneypandoralover:
This next bead is another exciting one, introducing a brand new movie to the Pandora Disney family. Here we have Peter Pan, decked out in green enamel and accompanied by a pirate ship!
I love the detailing that went into this bead, but it does look quite sizeable in live photos. I’d have to think how best to style it. This great shot is also courtesy of @disneypandoralover:
In the US, the Peter Pan and Small World charms come in a set with this engraved Fantasyland dangle for $225 USD.
You can see the set in this pretty styling from @pandorabyliz:
The Eiffel Tower & Minnie charm was previously only available in DLP (Disneyland Paris), but has now been released in the US Disney Parks, where it retails for $60 USD.
The World of Disney charm had already launched in HongKong Disneyland, but is released in the US today! It’s priced at $75 USD.
The Disney Parks blog posted this live image of it:
Accompanying it are some US exclusive dangles, also out today! The Orange Bird and Enchanted Tiki Room charms are more engraved versions of the Unforgettable Moments pendants, priced at $65 USD each.
The charms will be available at various retail locations at Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort:
I personally love the little Stella Lou dangle and its adorable purple box (as I’ve mentioned before, I am such a sucker for pretty packaging!) – even though I know nothing about the character herself. ^^ I get closer to starting a dedicated Disney bracelet by the day! I also think it’s fab to finally have a Peter Pan dangle, and would love them to go further and do a whole set of Peter Pan charms.
There are more Disney characters coming out in Pandora stores the world over for Autumn and Winter. You can expect new charms for Snow White and Pinocchio for Pandora Disney Autumn 2018 collection, and beads celebrating Mary Poppins and festive Mickey/Minnie designs for the Pandora Winter 2018 collection. I’ve not heard anything further from Pandora about whether I can preview any of these in advance, but I am continuing to try to make it happen. :)
Have you purchased any of these beads? Are you excited for any of the new Disney charms coming up?
