If you’re a fan of ALEX AND ANI and you’re attending D23 EXPO 2015, August 14–16 at the Anaheim Convention Center, the Disney Dream Store is the place to be. Here’s your first look at the new collection from ALEX AND ANI that will make its debut during this year’s D23 EXPO. Up first is the Rafaelian Silver finish Celebrate Wrap created in commemoration of the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration. Featuring the word “Celebrate” in an elegant script, this magical piece is accented with metal and blue glass beads.

Some of you may remember the Mickey Filigree line from D23 EXPO 2013 when it made its debut. I know I do! I still recall learning the details on how each product is manufactured in the USA from recycled materials and, of course, comes with the accompanying Mickey Mouse icon tag. They say the magic of the Mickey Filigree Wrap is in the design, and I agree. You can choose a subtle approach with a whimsical piece accented in metal beads or add a little color with the Mickey Filigree Beaded Wrap accented in metal and pink beads. Either option will no doubt bring endless joy. Look for both of these styles in Rafaelian Gold and Rafaelian Silver finishes.

Now, the Mickey Filigree Gypsy Wrap is bound to become an instant classic. Made entirely of Mickey Filigree beads, this piece not only reminds you to believe in your dreams, but allows you to show your love for Mickey Mouse while wearing your heart on your sleeve. This style will be available in both Rafaelian Gold and Rafaelian Silver finishes.

There are so many choices. Which ALEX AND ANI pieces will make their way home with me? I’m not sure yet, but I still have time to decide.

What will you add to your collection? Let me know in the comments below.

  • I’m not quite sure where to post this but is there any word on a Disney Parks Blog meet up at D23 this year?

  • Thanks, Michelle for the update. I will be there at Christmas, but I can send my mom to Downtown Disney to pick up for me since she lives close by!!! Thanks again and keep up the fun posts, I always look forward to them 🙂

    • Hi Shannon! Sorry for the delay in letting you know this, but starting Monday, Sept.7 the Mickey Filigree wraps (second photo) will be available at locations at the Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts. Expect releases for the other wraps through the course of the month as well.

  • Two questions: will they be at the DLR? And how much will they be?

    • Karina, the prices actually vary. Unfortunately I don’t have the final list of retails available right now. If you are unable to make it to D23 Expo 2015, you will most likely find the collection in Disney Theme Parks in early Fall.

      UPDATE: Karina, great news! The Mickey Filigree Wrap (Second photo) will be in theme parks on Sept. 7. Look for additional releases of other Mickey Filigree beaded wraps and more throughout the month.

  • James wife here – Uh Oh! I think I’m going to need to stack them on both arms if these are online to purchase!
    Everytime I think I am “all set” more awesome items come out by A&A/WDW!!!!

  • Hi Michelle! Any updates regarding D23 Disney Dream Collection of Jewelry by the Freeman Family?? Thanks!

    • Hi Catherine! We’re so excited to have The Freeman Family back with us at D23 Expo 2015. I know they will have a lot of great pieces from their Disney Dream Collection on hand.

  • I love all 3 of the Mickey Filigree bracelets. Will they be available at WDW and/or the online store? I really want one of each of them but won’t be able to attend D23. Oh, please tell me the will be at WDW!!!

    • Hi Shannon! I’m checking into it and will update you shortly.

      Update: Shannon, the Mickey Filigree wraps should be available in the Fall at Walt Disney World.

  • Hi Michelle! this will be my first expo that I am attending. Do you know if we will be eligible for our Premium Pass discounts on Merchandise? If not, do you know if the Gold D23 cards will earn us a discount? Thanks in advance!

    • Hi Liz! Typically Disneyland Resort Annual Passholder discounts will apply on purchases at the Disney Dream Store, so you should be in good shape.
