Which events have made your list of things to do?
Woo hoo, new Disney Dooneys!
I know that the gingerbread Castle is already up in the Disneyland Hotel lobby.
I’ve read that there will be a large gingerbread house with a hot chocolate counter in the lobby of the Grand Californian Hotel and Spa. It’s not set up yet, as of this afternoon (11/19). Is there any idea when it will be there? Maybe by Thanksgiving?
Hi Sherry! Actually my good friend and fellow Disney Parks Blog author Rachel Brent worked on a post regarding the Gingerbread House at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. It looks like you can expect to find it beginning Nov. 27. Here is a link to the post for more details. https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2014/11/first-look-at-the-new-gingerbread-house-at-disneys-grand-californian-hotel-spa-at-disneyland-resort/
Will the new Dooney bags be sold online and, if yes, when? Thanks.
Hi Lauren, unfortunately I don’t have any details as to if the Dooney & Bourke bags will debut online. Should I hear of a release date online I will certainly let you know.
Are the Dooneys going to be available online too? I’d love to order one if so!
so will the new Dooneys be sold on Disneystore
Hi Bill, as of right now, it will only be available in parks. I would recommend contacting our Disney Merchandise Guest Services team following the release to inquire about remaining quantities and availability.
Do you know if the Dooney & Bourke “Body Parts” will eventually be sold at Walt Disney World as well?
Do you know how the bonus sale is going to work?
Hey Reanna! Disney Vault 28 will open at 8am on the day of release. The bonus sale items will be available on a first come, first serve basis, while supplies last. It will be a limit of ONE (1) bonus sale item per Guest. Here are a couple additional tips. Discounts will not apply to the bonus sale items and all sales will be final on those items.
Will the body parts bag be available at Disney world as well? Can they have a release on the east coast so we can have access to the special sale as well? Pretty please 😉
Regarding the LE 2014 commemorative pin for the Gingerbread House at the Disneyland Hotel…is that the current hotel logo?
