OtterBox and Disney announced yesterday that OtterBox will be the "Official Protective Case" of Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort as part of a new multi-year strategic alliance.

This will bring OtterBox cases to several D-Tech locations throughout Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort and eventually expand OtterBox's in-park presence.

"The collaboration between OtterBox and Disney allows us to combine the trusted protection of OtterBox with the magic of Disney Parks," OtterBox CEO Jim Parke said. "Not only can we help protect guests' precious memories inside the park and beyond, but we can help them express their passion for Disney with cases that represent some of their favorite characters and attractions."

OtterBox will also collaborate with Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media to offer a wide variety of brand new case designs. The first will be a signature series called the Classic Disney Collection, featuring timeless Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse designs on OtterBox Symmetry Series for iPhone 8, iPhone 7, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone 7 Plus.

"This alliance joins two companies that share a commitment to providing high-quality products and experiences," said Carlos Castro, vice president of Disney Corporate Alliances. "We are thrilled to collaborate with OtterBox and look forward to introducing a variety of new Disney-inspired merchandise for our guests to enjoy."

Symmetry Series Classic Disney Collection cases are available now for iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus on otterbox.com and are coming soon to D-Tech retail locations at Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort.

Actually the do. There are castle clear cases (both labled for DL and WDW) and so far I’ve seen the princesses. eBay is littered with them.

If they come out with cases that are themed to the parks, I’ll say goodbye to my ‘millennial pink’ phone case that matches my ‘millennial pink’ phone and get one.

Sorry for the 4 month bump. Just got my Mickey stride Case for my X. It matches my wife’s Minnie Case for her 8. Good quality OtterBox Case. Well done overall

I agree. I know it's not for me but the design is nice. Only thing is, I'm sure it doesn't have the battery life like the old flip phones. $260 flat out for a decently spec'd phone isn't bad especially considering how much I just spent on a Pixel 2 XL.

https://www.theverge.com/circuitbreaker/2017/6/22/15852686/samsung-folder-flip-2-korea-release Samsung and a couple smaller phone manufacturers have been making "smart" flip phones for a couple of years. There's always a couple every year. Don't get any hopes of them coming to the US because they probably wouldn't be profitable enough. You might be able to import them, it really depends on the bands they support.

Can't we just go back to simple flip phones and just make them smart? No offense to the technology that we now have, but I miss actual buttons. Touch screen is neat and all but I am one of the few who liked clamshell phones with clicky buttons.

It is amazing! everyone needs one. The hardest part if not having a home button. But the camera takes some amazing pictures!

Did you see the all time high Apple share price on Friday ? The iPhone X caused that. People are buying it.

KBLovesDisneyNov 04, 2017

You got the iPhone X?? o_O Is it truly as great as they say it is? Or is it a 1,000 dollar emoji machine? (Honestly, the only reason I would ever pay those crazy prices for a phone is if it was platinum and diamond studded.)

Goofnut1980Nov 04, 2017

I need a case for my iPhone X!

Well, now that there is an "Official Protective Case", that's one less "Official" item needing a sponsor. Some others are still up for grabs, if you work for a company looking to sponsor one of the following: Official Garden Decoration Official Ice Cube Official Pencil Sharpener Official Shoelace Official Magnet Official Towel Official Bottle Holder Please note: This list is not inclusive, there are many more sponsorship opportunities available.
