    Does anyone know if WDW is now selling Disney themed Galaxy S4 cases? I am hoping to pick one up on our visit to WDW on our trip next month.

    I do not know about options in the park...

    I have seen some excellent ones on etsy. Because of the camera/flash position, there are some odd designs (the Haunted Mansion tightrope walker comes to mind), so look carefully through all the sellers to see who has the best design for what you want.

    Doubtful. Even though the Galaxy 3 was the hottest selling phone in the country last fall/winter they had 1 case and countless iPhone cases.

    Disney supports very few phone products that do not begin with "i" or anything else that might be associated with Android. You just have to look at the inter-relationship with Apple to understand why.

    I doubt it has anything to do with Disney's relationship with Apple. There's so many different kinds of Android phones, how would they decide which ones to make cases for and which ones not to? Heck, if you go to a Best Buy you'll find a lot more cases for iPhones than you will for Androids, so it's not just Disney.

    We are able to make a custom case for the S4. So if you have a picture you want from there we can make it. Made on for DD iPhone last year and one for our iPad .

    Thank you for your responses. I think I might wait until we go to Universal on our trip - they seem to have numerous Harry Potter Galaxy 4 cases and make that a souvenier of that particular theme park. :)

    I had a galaxy S3 on our last trip this past January and I found a handful of different cases for it so I know that they are bringing them in. Can't comment on if they started bringing in S4 though.

    I know what you mean. Last October I only found a Steamboat Willy case which I purchased and a Minnie case (which I did not :) )

    I'm going to have to disagree with you. The Galaxy S4 outsold the iphone by far this year. If you were targeting by numbers, you would make it for the Galaxy S4. I get not making custom cases for the minor phones, but not making it for the best selling phone is just bad business - or collusion.

    2013 sales:
    Samsung Galaxy S4 55 million
    Apple iPhone 5 37 million
    Nokia Lumia 520 over 4 million
    BlackBerry Z10 3 million
    HTC One official sales numbers not released
    Sony Xperia Z 1 million

    No way! Cool! You just found my souvenir from the WWOHP. I'll be on the lookout when I get there.

    I know I have an IPad however this I bought a Minion case cover for my,IPad ata stall just outside Islands Of Adventure (in fact it's opposite Jimmy Buffets Margaritaville) what I can recall is they had a selection of cases for both Apple and Samsung.

    You beat me too it.
    This being the case, then perhaps there will be new products for the Galaxy coming soon. But the above point has been the reason. Apple's share of the market will be typical of apple's share of the home computing market. It will have good sales, but will not be the most used operating system. One of their factors is uniformity. The S4 has several varieties with more planned. We don't need World of Disney turning into World of Cell Phone and Tablet cases.

    I find it telling that all of the Disney apps are for iOS only. There are no Android or Windows versions. Yes, there is a very close relationship between Disney and Apple.

    I was at Islands of Adventure yesterday and didn't find any cool Galaxy S4 cases. A cast member at the Harry Potter store told me that they don't carry phone cases because "Wizards don't use cell phones". At another store a cast member told me that Universal only carries Iphone cases but WattsamattaU is independent and might have others. The kiosk in Citywalk had a few but no Harry Potter.

    As a droid user with Disney apps on her phone, I can assure you this isn't the case.

    And Target and Walmart and the kiosk in the mall... that being said, we did see one or two cases for the S4 at Downtown Disney last night. They were in a store connected to the design a t shop. Lots of iphone cases but nothing for my Droid 4.

    When I was at Downtown Disney last year, I thought I saw some Galaxy S3 cases.
