Charms

Post by Esmeralda » Jan Wed 21, 2009 8:38 am

Does anyone else out there have a Disney charm bracelet? I've noticed the selection has become a bit less lately, with little emphasis on the parks and just a few select characters.

Pin trading is so fun, I think it would be a blast to have charm trading too!

There are stands at each of the parks (and hotels I believe) where you'll see collections of charms. The bracelets are hanging right at the stand (and then of course you fill in with your choice of charms).

I saw a cast member from Mr. Toad's Wild Ride have a charm bracelet and she had a few charms here and there. I was never much of a fan of the charm bracelets but they did look nice.

I was just on the disney store/shopping website the other night and I saw that they sold two types of charm bracelet and then charms to add on to it.
It might be a nice way to get started.

My wife has this one framed. It is from her grandparents and it is an opening-year WDW bracelet. in the box lining it has the original Walt Disney World logo (the D with the globe Mickey inside) and this copyright:

(c) 1969 Walt Disney World Co.

Isn't that neat? 1969.

The charms are hard to see in the pic but they are:

A locomotive
A Main Street buggy
A boat of some sort
The castle
The sternwheeler
A fort tower
A horse-drawn streetcar

And she's not even the Disney geek in our house!
No one's gloomy or complaining while the flatware's entertaining.

That looks amazing! I know if I had something like that I would keep it framed also in fear of losing it. I am notorious for losing precious items.

Ahh, that bracelet is so pretty! I don't wear them because they feel heavy and awkward on my wrist, but I think the pendants are absolutely, well, charming. lol! Anything miniature and detailed is a favorite of mine.
