Steve Jobs sure knew what he was doing when he created the world’s most popular smartphone. With its amazing capabilities and unique functions, the iPhone has revolutionized the way we look at a mobile device. One would be hard-pressed to walk into a store or business and not see someone with this little gadget. And, if you’re like me, you enjoy proudly displaying your love of everything Disney on its cover. Thanks to Disney Parks’ D-Tech merchandise line, Disney fans have dozens of choices for iPhone cases that will provide both protection and style. Here are a look at my favorites.

Over the past few years, Disney Merchandise has created an ever-growing collection of technology accessories called “D-Tech.” This group of cases, covers, and holders are specially made for Apple products like the iPhone and iPad as well as the Android phone. Styles vary, but typically feature beloved characters and theme park icons. I’ve recently become enchanted by a few of the designs and thought I’d share them.

Who doesn’t love a little sparkle? Add some to your favorite mobile accessory with one of these jeweled iPhone cases featuring Mickey, Minnie, or Jack Skellington. These are designed with rhinestones on the case, but still hold the distinct features of each character.
Characters – Old & New
Many Disney fans might prefer to show off their favorite characters on their devices. D-Tech has a large amount of character cases available especially for the iPhone 4S. This includes familiar faces from older films like Cinderella or Sleeping Beauty as well as those that are newer such as Oz: The Great & Powerful.

Commemorate Your Special Visit
Whether it is your first visit to a Disney park or a holiday trip, you can select an iPhone case celebrating all of the fun you had. Below, Sorcerer Mickey commemorates 2013 trips to the parks.
Many Disney fans enjoy the parks during the holidays. This is due to their elaborate decorations and special activities. This new group of Christmas cases was sold this past December and feature our beloved castles lit up in thousands of twinkling lights.
Park Icons & Favorites
Those of us out there who have an interest in Disney history and park icons will be happy to see many of the new iPhone cases being released lately. They feature designs such as the original Walt Disney World logo, Pirates of the Caribbean artwork, and even Push, a frisky little talking trashcan that can be commonly found in Tomorrowland.
With the success of Disney’s collaboration with handbag designer, Dooney & Bourke, it is no surprise that D-Tech recently released a matching iPhone case. Available in both white or black, the pattern models the original “Disney Dooney” which was released last year. Due to the success of both the handbags and their matching iPhone cases, I would think it is safe to say that additional styles will be released in the near future.
All of the cases shown above range in prices depending upon collection size and style. Most begin at $39.99 and up, but I have seen some marked down recently to as low as $10.99. Note that each case comes with a plastic screen protector that sticks to the front of your phone in order to prevent scratching.
No matter what case you choose, it’s good to know that Disney Parks can be with you anywhere via your mobile device. Do you buy iPhone cases during your trips to Walt Disney World or Disneyland? Which is your favorite?
