    Are the (paper) beads for life currently available in Disney’s animal Kingdom?

    Greetings, Melissa!

    Or Jambo! As they say at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. Isn't it incredible that the park has been welcoming Guests and teaching conservation for 20 years? I get lost in the learning and fun experiences and attractions throughout the park every visit. One of my favorite fun facts about the park is that it took 10 artists and three Disney Imagineers nearly 18-months to create the more than 300 carvings on the park's iconic Tree of Life.

    Unfortunately, I don't believe the Bead For Life jewelry is available at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park --although I agree it seems like a fitting location. There was recycled paper, hand-crafted beads available at a kiosk in Epcot's World Showcase, but unfortunately that location was removed about this time last year. I called and spoke to Disney Merchandise and Epcot Guest Relations hoping it may have returned since my last visit, but they informed me that it has not. They were also not able to tell me if they are sold anywhere else on property as they don't have access to third-party merchandise inventory. As a last resort, I called and spoke directly with the Bead For Life offices and they told me they do not have any merchandise locations at Walt Disney World Resort. 

    I'm sorry I could not find you a fairy tale answer, Melissa. I adored the beads and found it to be such a great and inexpensive souvenir for our trips, so I was really hoping for a little pixie dust with this one. Hopefully, you'll find the perfect alternative on your next trip "home."  Thank you again, and please come see us with any other questions you may have.

    Magical Wishes,
