During my last trip to Disneyland, I discovered something unique I had seen at Downtown Disney some years ago but has since disappeared: custom Disney phone cases. With D-tech on Demand, you pick your phone type, a unique print, add some customization, and have it printed on the spot. I was disappointed to see it go as I had always wanted to try it, when to my luck I found it resurfaced in the Tomorrowland gift shop at the exit of Star Tours.
If you’re on the fence about getting one, note that according to staff it’s currently only available in that location, so if you leave the park or are all the way down on Main Street you’ll be out of luck!
There are plenty of fun prints to choose from with original artwork, and the prices are actually quite similar to what you would pay for a quality product like this: $29.99 for a basic case, $5 extra to add your name, and $34.99 for specialty cases such as the 3-D designs currently offered. From recollection I believe there are models other than iPhone but I can’t say for sure as I didn’t get any picture evidence.
You can search by regular designs (including Baby Yoda), Mickey and friends designs, and 3-D designs, or type in your favorite character to quickly see all the models. Once you decide your design for your custom Disney phone case, you select what color you want for the edge of the case. I chose an adorable print of Ariel from Ralph Breaks the Internet and a pretty pink trim to complement it.
I then had the option to add my name and confirm the order. I was instructed to visit a counter to pay for it, which would then start the printing process. Make sure to go to the counter closest to the kiosk at the very back of the store, which is the only one that can process it for you. First the clerk had me remove my own case to check that the demo size I chose would fit, which was a nice touch. I was given a receipt and told to pick it up at Star Wars Launch Bay (the big dome between Hyperspace Mountain and Autopia), and that it would take about 30 minutes to print.
It was actually ready as soon as I got there, and I was delighted to see how well it printed! Of all the jewelry, assorted knick-knacks, and endless variety of plushies I could have added to my already enormous collection, I felt it was the best souvenir I spent my money on: it’s something I can enjoy look at every day, and it protects my phone great.
Being at the launch bay also gave me the perfect opportunity to look around at the gallery of Star Wars items and learn some of the history behind the movies, plus I got to take a picture with Chewy at one of their character meet-and-greets! I definitely recommend investing in a custom Disney phone case for yourself or a loved one next time you’re in Tomorrowland.
