Sparkling Disney World Jewelry by Arribas Brothers

Arribas Brothers has been a staple of Disney vacation shopping since two brothers first got their start as glassblowers in Fantasyland at Disneyland back in 1967. Walt Disney reportedly noticed the glass blowing and glass cutting work of Alfonso and Tomas Arribas when they represented Spain at the 1964–65 New York World’s Fair. In 1971, the family duo opened Crystal Arts on Main Street, U.S.A. in Orlando, where Manuel Arribas has continued to work.
