I'm fairly certain they said they would be releasing iPhone 5 cases come end of Nov/beg. of Dec. It was on the page where the Merchandise director showed off the new Epcot 30th Anniversary stuff. I'll try and find the link....

EDIT: Found it....check out this link and specifically Comment 13. http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blo...r-28/#comments

Disney just isn't hot enough in that space to have pre-built 100k cases based solely on specs from Apple, which is all anybody had until a couple of weeks ago.

There is no way you'll see any for 30-60 days+. Maybe in time for the hollidays. Maybe.

I'm sure Disney buys their cases from suppliers in China that DON'T have the pre-specs. I'm sure they deal with companies that give them a FAR larger margin than the ones that shuck the big $$ to have specs to build product for day of. Besides, I have a couple of WDW's cases. They weren't built by the guys that pay the big bucks.

My iPhone 5 is coming this Tuesday. I already picked up an Otterbox for it but would like to get a Disney one for it too.

If there's not any by December, I'll just have to slap a Disney sticker on the Otterbox, lol.

Ours come tomorrow. These will be DH's and my's first iPhone. I can't wait to find a Disney one. I saw a lot on eBay, but I'm going to wait and see what Disney has.

So, how are you liking the phone? I find it much faster than the 4s and it's lighter too. Glad I upgraded- I just sent off the 4s to Gazelle. They bought it back for $274.

I just asked this again last week. Others reported not seeing any yet in the parks. I will be there in 3 days and will keep my eyes open while we are there. Hope they are coming soon!

There aren't that many 5 cases out yet to begin with (some, just not many); let alone Disney ones.

We just arrived today and I found the iPhone 5 case in Mousegear in Epcot and in the Emporium in the Magic Kingdom. Just the one design for now with more styles to come in the new year. Very happy to get mine!

Oh now you are asking me to get tricky! I can't quite figure out how to do that but I can tell you it is the Storybook design that is on so much of their merchandise right now. It looks nice and makes a great souvenir of our trip.
