I’m excited to announce that new Disney-inspired handbags and accessories by Vera Bradley will bloom this fall at Disney Parks. Known for their stylish quilted cotton luggage, handbags and accessories, Vera Bradley has been infusing color into all aspects of women’s lives for more than 30 years. Disney Theme Park Merchandise worked closely with Vera Bradley to develop two new patterns that will appear on items this fall. I spoke with Cathy Dawson, merchandiser for accessories at Disney Parks, about these colorful additions.
“We are thrilled to introduce Vera Bradley to our accessories assortment,” exclaimed Cathy. “In recent years, we’ve seen several guests in our parks and resorts sporting fun, colorful bags by Vera Bradley. Even our Disney Cruise Line team recently added some items by Vera Bradley to the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy. We thought it would be wonderful to add a splash of Disney to these popular and colorful accessory items.”
The new Disney-inspired patterns have names, which is something Vera Bradley does for all of their patterns. Cathy said the black pattern is called “Midnight with Mickey,” while the pink pattern is named “Just Mousing Around.” These patterns will be seen on duffel bags, totes, cosmetic bags and more.
When released this fall, guests will find these items at select locations in Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts. They will also be sold via the Disney Parks online store at a future date.
If you plan on visiting the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival, please stop by the Festival Center, located between Mission: SPACE and Universe of Energy in Future World, to get a first look at these bags on display. The festival runs from March 6 through May 19, 2013.
i read that they are scheduled to be released in Sept, but no date or location yet, sure wish theyd give us some heads up, like price!!!
Any chance we will be able to see the Vera Bradley at the Disney Expo?
What is the official date they go on sale and are you able to order online?
Can the Disney Vera Bradley bags be purchased from a Disney facility and shipped to my home?
We are going to be at Disneyland July 22-29. Will the Vera bags be available then…I read that it would be Fall.
Will they be available to order and if so how?
Is there any update on the fall release date for these bags?
Any chance you know the release date of these ‘lovely, gorgeous, beautiful, I got have them’ bags yet?
can you please let me know what the release date will be for the bags?
Do you know if they will be including the 22 in. luggage with the new Disney patterns? Or are the only options the four pieces shown in the picture? I was planning on buying some when I come in November. I cannot wait; I love the Midnight Mickey pattern. I just bought new black Vera to match it. Now I must sell my old Vera luggage for Mickey.
Any word on when these will be available in the parks, I will be there October 3 – 11 and I am hoping to get at least one. Thanks/
