PANDORA Coming to Disney Parks/DCL this Fall

I hope they aren't getting rid of Chamilia.

I read the comments below the article and someone asked that question. The response was vague, saying something like limited Chamilia items will be available for a limited time. It sounds to me like they'll be phasing Chamilia out, particularly because Pandora is becoming a sponsor of the Tinkerbell 10K and one of the night time shows.

I am super excited to hear this! I have a couple of Chamilla charms but some of them won't fit my Pandora bracelet. I can't wait to see what comes out.

It also sounds like they won't have the Pandora merchandise on the ships when I sail in October. So that means they might sell out of and not reorder the Chamilia charms I want AND not have the new Pandora ones either. Great

I wondered about Chamilia. I love my Chamilia bracelet, I was looking forward to filling it with charms in the coming years. I suppose some of the Pandora charms would fit.

Well I'm sort of happy & sad... my daughter LOVES her Pandora bracelet and I was going to purchase the Camilla charm with the disney logo and life preserver for Christmas. Hope Pandora makes something similiar.

This is actually exciting news for me. I only have Pandora (I actually won it at a basket raffle....and then got in to collecting the charms). So this makes it simple for me (although I do feel your pain for those that have Chamilia...since just yesterday I was on the flip side of wondering what charms would fit my Pandora).

Since I'm not sailing until next year....that also works well for me.

I'm excited about this. I currently have a Pandora bracelet and have 11 Chamilia beads. I have not had any problems with them not fitting the Pandora. I'll be in WDW in September, so I'm hoping I can find more beads!!!!!😊😊

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't sad to hear this news. I absolutely LOVE Chamilia and their Disney beads. I have three Chamilia bracelets, 2 of which are Disney themed, and own exactly one PANDORA charm (castle). I'll just have to wait and see what pandora has to offer.

I have 2 pandora bracelets. One is complete and one only has 2 clips I had decided I was done with pandora since I hadn't seen any charms I really liked in a while. I guess my empty bracelet will now become a disney one.

This makes me incredibly sad since I JUST purchased my Chamilia on our cruise this past April. I chose Chamilia over Pandora strictly for the Disney beads. Hopefully they will still have some Chamilia available when we go to WDW in November. I only got 2 on our cruise since I bought the bracelet as well. I wish now I would've gotten more!

I have 3 or 4 chamilla beads on my pandora bracelet. But we bought my mom the swirly Mickey head dangle for her birthday and it wouldn't go on. I didn't even think to try it. Thankfully, we gave it to her on the trip and she exchanged it for the castle which fit just fine!

Pandora likely smaller than Chamillia

So I have a theory...if only some of the Chamilia beads fit the Pandora bracelets, I'm going to guess that the opening on Chamilia beads tend to be smaller than the circumference of the Pandora bracelet.

If you follow that train of thought, it is most likely then that the larger Pandora beads will fit the smaller Chamilia bracelet (perhaps loose..but they will slide on). I'm just guessing based on what I have read.

As for selection....let's face it...when does Disney ever do something small with someone they partner with? They are going have certain requirements they put in place with any partner. Which leads me to think that ultimately the selection from Pandora will be just as extensive as the selection that was offered from Chamilia.

I'm not sure if I should get the Chamilia bracelet and DCL charms (if they are available on the Dream in Oct) or wait until our next cruise and see what Pandora has to offer. What would you do?
