Halloween at the Walt Disney World Resort

New D-Tech Cases for Android Phones and More Arriving This Summer at Disney Parks

Since launching D-Tech, the electronic accessories line at Disney Parks, we’ve received numerous requests for additional mobile phone cases. I’m happy to share that select Android phone cases are coming to Disney Parks and the Disney Parks Online Store this summer. I checked in with Kevin-Michael Lezotte, Product Developer for D-Tech, to learn how these particular phone models were selected.

“When D-Tech was introduced in November 2010, we started with covers for iPhones,” explained Kevin-Michael. “The iPhone offers two different forms, whereas there are a plethora of Android phones that currently exist. We designed the Android covers based on the five most popular phones in the marketplace.”
“New

The Android phones that were selected include the HTC Droid Incredible 2™, HTC Thunderbolt™, HTC Evo™ 4G, Samsung Infuse™ 4G, and Motorola Atrix™ 4G. There are three new graphic designs being introduced for these particular phones, with additional designs coming this fall.

In addition to these new covers, there are new covers being released for the iPhone 4/4S.
“New

To celebrate Disney California Adventure park, we are releasing two new limited edition cases in June. One case features attraction posters, while the other, designed by California artist Noah, features the artwork he created for the new “Storytellers Collection.” Each case will have an edition size of 2,012. There will also be two open edition cases featuring artwork inspired by Cars Land.
“New

In July, we will release three new limited edition cases, each with an edition size of 2,012. The limited edition cases have been popular since the first one was introduced for the 40th anniversary of Walt Disney World Resort. Classic logos from Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort-inspired artwork for two of the cases. The third case was inspired by a Pirates of the Caribbean attraction poster. These cases will be sold via the online store first and then released at Disney Parks about a month later.

Finally, three new jewel-covered cases with Minnie Mouse, Jack Skellington and Sorcerer Mickey Mouse will debut this summer. The previously released Minnie Mouse and Mickey Mouse covers with jewels have been some of our most popular D-Tech designs.

Love the case designs! Will the classic WDW resort logo and Pirates of the Caribbean attraction poster be offered only for iPhone or for Droids as well?

 

Steven Miller on June 15th, 2012 at 4:20 pm

@Katie – I also love those retro designs. They look sharp! Currently, the plan is only to offer them for iPhone cases.

LOVE! The new California Adventure poster case! I definitely need to get me that one!

Paul on June 14th, 2012 at 3:38 pm

First off…THANK YOU! As an Android user I’m doing the happy dance at finally being able to buy these cases. (there are far more Android users than I-phone users, so it makes sense). Anyway…Do you have an exact release date for the Android products?

 

Steven Miller on June 15th, 2012 at 4:22 pm

@Paul – You’re welcome! I know the Android phone cases are currently in locations. I saw them at World of Disney in Downtown Disney in Florida this past week. I know they are also planning to release them via the online store. Keep watching this page:

I saw a small selection of Disney World related iPhone cases on my last trip. I’d love some classic Epcot options on the iPhone cases (and shirts, and hats, and pretty much everything else). On something that’s as visible as a phone, I like the idea of the logo being a bit more subtle. The classic EPCOT logo, or the logos from the Future World attractions would make great options for subtle merchandise.

I am so very very excited to hear that we are getting Android cases. I have an Evo 4G so I will finally be able to show my Disneyland love on my most used accessory! Thanks D-Tech!!

David on June 14th, 2012 at 4:13 pm

The Storytellers one is awesome, wish it had been in WDW when I was there in April!

Jessica on June 14th, 2012 at 4:46 pm

Love that the you’ve expanded the cases to android now! However, I have a Samsung Galaxy S2. :( Guess I’ll shoot for my next new phone to be the EVO 4G just so I can get a Disney case!! :)

Adam from CA on June 14th, 2012 at 6:05 pm

Would be nice to have a case for the HTC Amaze 4G, the best phone on the market, imo, but it sadly did not do very well after its launch.

Donald on June 14th, 2012 at 10:20 pm

Would be nice if I could get it in the razor.

13

Kelly on June 15th, 2012 at 9:14 am

Yes, I’d like to see it for the Droid RAZR, also! I’ve been holding out on getting a case in hopes that D-Tech will release one, soon!

Christine from AB on June 15th, 2012 at 1:28 pm

How about doing some of the case art in decal format for other phones such as Blackberry. I want the Storyteller’s Statue so bad!!

Shauna on June 15th, 2012 at 4:24 pm

It’s about time! I would love to Disney-ify by Pantech Breakout!

Daniel on June 15th, 2012 at 9:52 pm

Love the retro styles! Can’t wait to see them.

Breck on June 18th, 2012 at 10:30 am

Do they have a case for the Droid Charge by Samsung?

18

Wayne on June 18th, 2012 at 7:24 pm

Will there be any for the HTC EVO 3 D?

19

Rafael on June 19th, 2012 at 1:33 pm

there are a lot of HTC Sensation owners as well…but again, i get its hard to make everyone happy with the androids since there’s a lot of variations.

 

Steven Miller on June 20th, 2012 at 5:42 pm

@Rafael – I think you picked up a good theme – variations. I spoke with Kevin-Michael who said that at this time we are only focused on development for the Android models listed in the article.

Depending upon popularity (which can be measured through feedback and sales), we may expand or alter the line. Yet there are a lot of models that exist in the Android marketplace. We unfortunately are limited by space and can only carry certain styles.

Kerry from NY on June 21st, 2012 at 8:21 pm

Hoping the Droid Razr will be added to the list at some point. I keep checking.

SHAWN on June 23rd, 2012 at 7:57 am

DO you think you will be making any jack the pumpkin king cases for the Atrix 4g?

 

Steven Miller on June 25th, 2012 at 10:15 am

@Shawn – I have not seen specific plans for Jack Skellington artwork for the Atrix 4G. Sorry.

Kyra on July 11th, 2012 at 6:18 pm

I have seen Disney World cases for iPads in the park, but online they only have iPad sleeves. Have the cases been discontinued?

23

Elizabeth from MO on July 12th, 2012 at 12:40 pm

Still watching the online store for these new cases (specifically the Pirates poster version). Any estimate on the date it will be available online? Thanks!
