Alex & Ani is the latest designer to join the ranks of other popular designers such as Dooney & Bourke, Chamilia, and Harveys who have partnered with Disney to create specialty products available at Disney Parks and the Disney Store. For those unfamiliar with Alex & Ani, they are a United States company that creates jewelry and charms made from recycled metals in an eco-friendly manner. Not only is a healthy environment important to them, they also have a philosophy that revolves around using positive energy research to influence their designs. One concept in particular they are known for is a patented expandable wire design, allowing for each piece to be adjusted to the desired fit.
The Alex & Ani blog announced the arrival of their newest Disney licensed charms to different locations throughout the Walt Disney World and Disneyland resorts earlier this week. At Walt Disney World, the new charms are available at: Uptown Jewelry (Magic Kingdom), Agrabah (Magic Kingdom), Pirates Bazaar (Magic Kingdom), Emporium (Magic Kingdom), Once Upon a Time (Hollywood Studios), Tower of Terror (Hollywood Studios), Hilton Bonnet Creek Resort Hotel, Ink and Paint (Art of Animation Resort), Mouse Gear (Epcot), Calypso (Caribbean Beach Resort), Donald’s Double Feature (All-Star Movies Resort), Everything Pop (Pop Century), World of Disney (Downtown Disney, and TrenD (Downtown Disney).
At Disneyland Resort, the new charms are available at: Emporium (Disneyland), Pieces of Eight (Disneyland), Le Bat en Rouge (Disneyland), Gone Hollywood (California Adventure), Treasures in Paradise (California Adventure), World of Disney (Downtown Disney), and Disney Vault 28 (Downtown Disney).
It is unknown as to whether or not the empty bracelets will also be available, but if the partnership is anything like that with Chamilia and the pictures released on the Alex & Ani blog are any indication, it is reasonable to believe that they could be. I don’t know about you, but the simplicity of the design is very classy… I can’t wait to pick up a few on my next trip!
