Disney and Brazilian flip-flop creators Havaianas have announced a new strategic alliance that will see dedicated Havaianas retail stores open at Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort theme parks.
“We are thrilled to have entered into this relationship with the Walt Disney World Resort, the Disneyland Resort and Disney Vacation Club because they embody instant joy much like Havaianas,” said Marcio Moura, Havaianas’ USA President. “We look forward to creating a harmonious relationship and further expanding opportunities within the Walt Disney World Resort, the Disneyland Resort and Disney Vacation Club in the coming years.”
The alliance will make Havaianas the official Flip-Flop of Walt Disney World, Disneyland Resort, Disney Vacation Club, and later in the fall, Havaianas will become a sponsor of runDisney races.
Disney and Havaianas have worked together over the past four years creating Disney-themed flip-flops. This new agreement will see dedicated retail stores open inside Disney’s theme parks, including the Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon water parks and Disney California Adventure. In addition, 22 existing stores through the parks will carry the Havaianas flip-flops.
Havaianas also operates a dedicated retail store in The Landing district of Disney Springs.
