This summer, guests can enjoy a variety of Star Wars experiences at Disney Parks including the upcoming fireworks show, “Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular,” at Disney’s Hollywood Studiosstarting June 17. To celebrate a summer of Star Wars at Disney Parks, the D-Tech on Demand team is introducing a limited release collection of Star Wars-inspired artwork at the D-Tech on Demand kiosks in Florida and California.
On the first and fifteenth day of each month this summer, guests will find a new piece of artwork used for creating customized or personalized mobile phone cases. Guests visiting Walt Disney World Resort will also find new retail MagicBands artwork.
The two images of phone cases and retail MagicBands above include artwork being released on June 1.
The process for creating a D-Tech on Demand phone case or retail MagicBand takes a few minutes. Guests can select their phone model or MagicBand color, chose a favorite design and add a name. For Star Wars artwork, names can be written in Aurebesh, one of the alphabets used in the Star Wars galaxy.
Beginning June 15, additional artwork, as seen in the above and below images, will be added to the respective D-Tech on Demand kiosks. All artwork will only be available for a limited time (typically 30 days).
At Walt Disney World Resort, guests can find D-Tech on Demand kiosks at Tomorrowland Light & Power Co. in Magic Kingdom Park, D-Tech on Demand boutique in the Marketplace Co-Op at Disney Springs Marketplace, and Star Wars Launch Bay in Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
For guests visiting Disneyland Resort, look for D-Tech on Demand at Star Wars Launch Bay in Tomorrowland inside Disneyland park or D-Street in Downtown Disney District.
The Marketplace Co-Op at Disney Springs will be switching out one of its shops for a new Disney Travel-Accessories and Gear shop.
Zoey and Pickles will be closing on February 21st to make way for the new shop.

One of the additions this year to Disney Springs Marketplace at Walt Disney World Resort is the new Twenty Eight & Main boutique that recently opened in the Marketplace Co-Op. You may recall that Twenty Eight & Main is a new men’s apparel and accessories collection created for especially for distinguished gentlemen who love Disney Parks.
This location carries a variety of apparel items that are classic, stylish yet modern. A handful of accessories, such as headware or luxurious leather bags, are also offered. It was great to see one of my favorite items, the leather briefcase, which has an awesome all over pattern on the inside flap. That same pattern was used on pajama pants and even on the inside of some wall fixtures.
In addition to the Twenty Eight & Main collection, the shop carries apparel and accessories by Pendleton along with shirts by Levi Strauss & Co. Look for a selection of pub-themed goods from the United Kingdom Pavilion in World Showcase at Epcot.
There will be several apparel items that will only be found in this location at Disney Springs. You can see some of those items along a wall that has framed shirts.
Finally, the shop is filled with little details including nods to the lion from the Disney family crest. I loved finding the Orange Bird in a display along with a miniature Rocketeer helmet.
Beginning on November 6th in the space that used to house the Trophy Room at the Marketplace Co-Op will become a new store selling the new men’s apparel and accessory line ‘Twenty Eight and Main.’
The upscale Twenty Eight & Main merchandise will bring a subtle Disney Parks connection to clothing and accessories, including leather messenger bags, shirts, caps, mugs and even an Adventurers Club phone case and shirt.
Along with the new Marketplace Co-Op store, items from the collection will be available on the new Shop Disney Parks app and at other stores throughout Walt Disney World.
D-Tech On Demand combines rapid printing technology with great artwork to create personalized electronic accessories for guests. Today, I have great news for guests who want to add a splash of Disney to the latest technology. Beginning September 20, D-Tech on Demand will offer cases for the recently announced iPhone 6.
D-Tech on Demand now offers more than 170 different art styles for select phones. The image at the top of this story shows three iPhone 6 cases with some of my favorite new artwork.
In addition to the iPhone 6, guests can design and personalize cases for other phones including iPhone 4/4S, iPhone 5/5S, iPhone 5C, Samsung Galaxy SIII and Samsung Galaxy S4.
Coming in October, the D-Tech on Demand team will offer select iPhone 6 cases in additional Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort merchandise locations. These cases will not be offered on our Disney Parks online store at this time.
Guests should also look for iPhone 6+ cases coming to D-Tech on Demand in the Marketplace Co-Op later this fall.
I would love to see which case you select. Use #DisneySide if you share an image of your phone case on a social network like Twitter, Facebook or Instagram.
Opened in June 2012, the distinctive and eclectic contemporary art location showcases unique art collections by some incredibly talented artists. I have great news for fans who love this location like I do. A small assortment of WonderGround Gallery items was recently added to the Marketplace Co-Op in Downtown Disney Marketplace.
Located just inside the main entrance of the shop, this new addition contains a handful of prints, mugs, magnets, postcards and more from various artists originally featured in the California location.
You may recall that the Marketplace Co-Op was designed to be a testing space for new retail products, store concepts and guest experiences. This small addition is a great example of the flexible space inside the location.
During my recent visit, I saw a new “Welcome” sign inside the shop (just look at those letters!). I love the “The Village Marketplace Co-Operative” label found on the side of the orange crates. Benches were also added to the center area between the boutiques.
If you are unable to visit the Marketplace Co-Op in Florida or the WonderGround Gallery in California, you can find select items from the location on our Disney Parks online store.
The Marketplace Co-Op is now officially open in Downtown Disney Marketplace at Walt Disney World Resort. First announced in November 2013 on the Disney Parks Blog, this new merchandise destination will serve as a testing space for new Disney retail concepts, shops and products.
