The world of LuLaRoe leggings have taken the world by storm over the last year or so, and now, they're only going to get bigger as they have partnered with Disney. There had been a lot of rumors going around for days when LuLaRoe called for a huge meeting of their consultants in Disney California Adventure at the Disneyland Resort. Late on Thursday night, the rumors came true as the partnership announcement was made.
Throughout the day on Thursday, LuLaRoe consultants were posting on social media about how they were heading to Disneyland for a huge announcement. While they hadn't been told much, they did know that their company had rented out the Disney California Adventure park after it closed for the day so they could have a party.

Well, there was going to be a party and some kind of big announcement made, but they weren't given much information at all. The official word was set to come out around 10:15 p.m. Pacific / 1:15 a.m. Eastern, but word started leaking out early and the buzz was on.
Money Saving Sisters reported that an internal announcement was made in the back office communication for LuLaRoe consultants. Not all consultants were able to see it, but screenshots of it started getting passed around with the official word.
In the image, LuLaRoe states they are "thrilled" to announce that there will be a collaborative collection with the Walt Disney Company. There are going to be "Disney-inspired prints" for the LuLaRoe line that will include a wide range of "Disney approved graphics and assets" that can be used for promotional purposes.
As of now, there is no official word on when the Disney-inspired LuLaRoe leggings and accessories will be released.
Dana's Dirt brought up that there have already been some Disney-ish patterns released for the leggings such as different colored castles. Many fans have attributed those designs to Disney, but they were not officially from the House of Mouse.

It is quite amazing that Disney was able to keep this partnership with LuLaRoe quiet for as long as they have. With so many consultants in different locations, it seems almost a certainty that something like this would leak out, but they kept it hush-hush.
Lularoe Disney Patterns are Coming! https://t.co/TXed5ICOba pic.twitter.com/WQjoaJ5fcbSocial media sites such as Twitter and Instagram and countless groups on Facebook have been buzzing like crazy with anticipation of this big reveal. One only has to imagine how hard it may be to come by these unique Disney-themed designs of LuLaRoe leggings, though.

There may end up being a lot of new "unicorns" before anyone even realizes it.Just last month, Good Housekeeping reported on the lawsuits being brought against LuLaRoe for leggings and products that were "majorly defective." Some of the complaints were that the sizes were far too small and that others "developed holes" with just the slightest of movement.
While the company is still likely dealing with those issues, they're moving onto bigger and better things such as this partnership with Disney. Of course, things are always subject to change until the collaboration is made official, but that internal memo is really convincing.
LuLaRoe obviously didn't let lawsuits stating their product is defective slow them down as they appear to be doing better than ever. People around the world have lost their minds for the leggings and all of the different designs that have come their way, but they haven't seen anything yet. a new LuLaRoe collection for Disney is going to change the way these leggings and accessories fly out of inventory and it is a huge partnership for both companies.
