Merchandise Communications Manager Steven Miller recently gave an update on the Disney Parks Blog of some of the interesting merchandise that will be available at the D23 Expo 2017. The Disney Dream Store will showcase the official Disney merchandise for the Expo, which takes place from July 14-16.
There will plenty of new jewelry to be showcased, including Disney collections from ALEX AND ANI, Crislu, Rebecca Hook, and timepieces by Bulova. It is important to note that some items will only be available for D23 Gold Members.
Rebecca Hook will premiere some new pieces at the expo, including a Sterling silver pave castle necklace that features either blue or pink cubic zirconia stones, and a Sterling silver Tinker Bell necklace with “with clear cubic zirconia pave detailing.” All three of these necklaces will be available in the Disney Parks after the expo.
ALEX AND ANI have released new gold and silver bangles that are part of Disney’s “Through the Years” collection. This collection commemorates the anniversaries of the Disney Parks, and there will be a special Oswald The Lucky Rabbit anniversary bangle available as well. This entire collection will be available in the Disney Parks after the Expo.
Crislu has created a special D23 Gold Member exclusive, a 20-inch long .925 Sterling silver necklace that is a “Platinum plated Mickey head key…(and) contains clear cubic zirconia pave detailing and the D23 logo.” Another D23 Gold Member exclusive is a Rebecca Hook creation, which is “a sterling silver filigree castle necklace…that features a yellow gold plated D23 logo and measures 20-inches in length” These pieces are exclusive to the expo, and won’t be seen in the Disney parks.
It isn’t all about the jewelry at the D23 Expo! The Disney Parks Blog also released information and pictures on some HARVEYS bags, new Dooney & Bourke purses, and the rest of the “Through the Years” collection!
Another exciting new Dooney & Bourke collection has been released! This collection is inspired by Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas. The line is titled “Pumpkin King” and features “a Tote, a Wristlet and a Crossbody handbag.” Appropriately timed, this collection will be available in the Disney Parks this fall.
HARVEYS has created a backpack, a streamline tote, and a coin purse as part of the “Through the Years” collection.
The “Through the Years” collection was a massive project for Disney merchandising. Items from this collection will commemorate the “Pirates of the Caribbean 50th Anniversary, Space Mountain 40th Anniversary, Epcot 35th Anniversary, and Star Tours 30th Anniversary.” Many of the designs were actually found by using the Walt Disney Archives!
There will be posters, Vinylmations, hats, T-Shirts, and so much more that will celebrate these classic Disney Park attractions! There will be special pins for the collection with edition sizes of 1,000 each, and jumbo-sized pins will have editions size of 500.
