I have exciting news for guests who love Dooney & Bourke handbags. In August 2016, we will premiere three new Dooney & Bourke collections on the Shop Disney Parks mobile app. This free app offers access to thousands of products found at Disney Parks which you can have shipped directly to your home. To download, please visit DisneyWorld.com/Shop. Here are details about each collection being released this month.

Dooney & Bourke Beauty and the Beast Collection

August 15
The highly anticipated Disney’s “Beauty & the Beast” collection will be released via the app on August 15. You may recall seeing this collection in a Disney Parks Blog Unboxed video in early June. Look for a shopper tote, a letter carrier, and a wristlet.

Dooney & Bourke Alice in Wonderland "Tea Time" Collection

August 22
Three handbags inspired by Walt Disney’s “Alice in Wonderland” will be released on August 22 via the app. Titled “Tea Time,” this collection includes a wristlet, a letter carrier, and a shopper tote.

Dooney & Bourke Dumbo Collection

August 29
This year, Walt Disney’s “Dumbo” celebrates its 75th anniversary. The film was originally released in October 1941, and has inspired classic Disney Parks attractions such as Dumbo Flying Elephants in Fantasyland. To celebrate this milestone anniversary, we’re releasing three handbags on August 29 via the app. The collection includes a shopper tote, a letter carrier, and a wristlet. Look for an anniversary-themed hangtag on select styles.

  • Hi Steven, I love the Beauty and the Beady Dokneys. I have been waiting for a date on them. Also thank you for letting me know that there will also be an Alice one too. I love Beauty and the Beast and Alice in wonderland. I can’t wait for these to add to my Disney Dooney and Bourke collection.

  • Are these the same release dates for DLR?

    • @Amber – At this time, these items will only appear on the Shop Disney Parks mobile app. I’m not aware of release dates for Disneyland or Walt Disney World Resort locations. If you are in California, you can use the app to order products from Disney Parks and have them shipped directly to your home. Visit http://www.DisneyWorld.com/Shop. Select styles may also appear on the Disney Parks online store at a future date: https://www.disneystore.com/dooney-bourke/mn/1000812/

  • Will these be available in park also or exclusive to the app? Thanks!

    • @Nikki – At this time, I am only aware of these items being released on the Shop Disney Parks app.

  • Do you know what material the bags are made of? It looks like BATB and Dumbo are the coated cotton and like Alice may be the nylon. Will these only be available through the app, or will they make their way to the parks after their app debut?

    • @Stacey – All three collections are coated cotton. Currently, I only have release dates for the Shop Disney Parks app. I’m not aware of plans to carry them at Disney Parks locations. If that should change, I’ll update this reply.

  • I hope these will be released on the Disney store site as well. As a Canadian I am unable to get the shop parks app.

  • Thanks Steven but I’m in the UK and can’t get the app 🙁

  • While the prints are all lovely, what’s with the TOTE/LETTER CARRIER/WRISTLET only releases lately?? How many totes or letter carriers does one woman need?? Why no other silhouettes? My kingdom for a satchel! Please, please, PLEASE Steven – while we love the prints, I’m drowning in tote bags!

    • @Marisa – The accessories team selected these silhouettes as they felt they were the best option for showcasing the artwork. I’ll share your feedback with them.

  • Is this some cruel joke – I will in the parks in August, but won’t be able to get one as I am from the UK and we can’t use the app 🙁

    • @Rachel – I’m sorry to hear of your disappointment. At this time, I only know of release dates for the Shop Disney Parks app. I’ll share your comment with the team. From my understanding, select styles from these collections may be available via the Disney Parks online store at a future date: https://www.disneystore.com/dooney-bourke/mn/1000812/

      Safe travels and hope you have a good visit to Walt Disney World Resort.

  • I sincerely hope that you’re planning to release these in the parks, there are many, many people who prefer to hand pick their designer bags in person.

    • @Amy – Thank you for your feedback. I’m only aware of release dates for Shop Disney Parks app at this time.

  • No satchels in any of the new prints?

    • @Deborah – You are correct. That silhouette will not be offered at this time.

  • While the prints are lovely, they are the same styles again. Unfortunately I will not be a buyer.

    • @Kristine – I’m sorry to hear that. I spoke with the accessories team who selected these silhouettes as they are the best options for showcasing the gorgeous artwork. Perhaps you’ll find a different collection you like in the future.

  • Could you please provide me with a logical reason as to why the ‘Shop Disney Parks’ APP is not available for use by people living in Canada? Even while visiting WDW, the APP is unavailable for download.

    • @Sandra – Thank you for your comment. I’m sorry to hear of your frustrations. I have shared your thoughts with the app team. While there are no immediate plans for such an app, I know they are looking at options for future enhancements. I can say that select styles from these three collections may appear on the Disney Parks online store at a future date. I would invite you to keep watching this page: https://www.disneystore.com/dooney-bourke/mn/1000812/

  • Will these also be available on Disney Store? I have a gift card ready to use for my BATB purse, and the shop parks app doesn’t take Disney gift cards!! Thanks in advance 🙂

  • So excited for the Beauty and the Beast line!!! Is there a specific time that they’ll be available on the app on the 15th??

    Thank you so much for sharing!!!!

    • @Kristi – Unfortunately, I don’t have a confirmed time as to when items are added to the Shop Disney Parks app. I know products will be released on the specific dates listed above.

  • Well i am SO DISSAPOINTED, i don’t want to order on the app because I want to choose my placement. The app is nice for things that placement does not matter. We were actually planning a mini trip to Disney Springs just to pirchase the Dooney BATB bag.

  • I can’t belive this….I was so excited because I was planning to be at disney spring for the day it was released ….and now it’s only being released online!?!?!? This is a BIG disappointment.

    • @Kylie – I’m sorry to hear of your disappointment. We will be releasing these collections via Shop Disney Parks app and select styles may appear on the Disney Parks online store at a future date: https://www.disneystore.com/dooney-bourke/mn/1000812/

  • As an avid collector of the Disney D & B, I’m more disappointed that these are not leather. But Disney and D&B are still charging the same price for the cloth purses. Why pay $200 for a cloth purse when I can purchase a leather one for the same price? And I’m pretty sure these styles are the only ones they are making because they are the best sellers.

    • @Donyale – Thank you for your comment. I have shared your feedback with the accessories team. From my understanding, some of the artwork and designs don’t translate as well to leather bags versus coated cotton or nylon. The accessories team tries to balance all accessories currently offered at Disney Parks with a mix of materials and styles. It’s something to consider for future offerings.

  • Do we get annual passholder discount when shopping through the app?

    • @Susan – Yes! Passholder discounts apply.

  • Do you know the prices of these collections so I can start to save ahead of time?

    • @Geri – Please see the retails for these collections below. All retails are subject to change without notice.

      BEAUTY & THE BEAST
      Shopper Tote – $248
      Large Letter Carrier – $198
      Wristlet – $98

      Wristlet – $98

  • Will these be available in the park as well?

  • I have been eagerly awaiting the Beaty and The Beast release and don’t understand how you will be able to accommodate those of us who collect these bags and rely heavily on PLACEMENT. How are we to order and return if we are unhappy with placement? These need to be released in the parks! We love our bags because each is unique and there is so much joy in finding your special character front and center. Not to mention we have all seen horribly placed cut offs due to the nature of this type of purse. Please discuss with your team and insist they be released at the parks! If only released on the parks app, I anticipate a logistics nightmare with returns from those unhappy with placement. In addition, I have learned that only WDW receives AP discounts on the app which is not fair to those of us who specifically pay the highest rates with Signature Plus passes in order to utilize discounts. Again, please insist that these bags be released at the parks.

    • @Lucia – I’ve shared your comment with the team. From my understanding, Passholders from both Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts should be eligible for a 10% discount. Select styles from these collections may also be found on the Disney Parks online store at a future date: https://www.disneystore.com/dooney-bourke/mn/1000812/

  • Thank you, for releasing these on the app. It’s ridiculous the people that buy these and resell for 100$ more on ebay. I appreciate being able to purchase on the app! Looking forward to the Dumbo bag, but you made it a very difficult decision! They all are great!

  • Will these bags be available to order from Disney Store Online…I live in Canada and am not able to use the Shop Disney Parks app! 🙁

    • @Nora – I spoke the the online store team this morning. They told me that select styles may appear on the Shop Disney Parks app at a future date. I hope all is well in Canada; I really need to visit again. https://www.disneystore.com/dooney-bourke/mn/1000812/

  • The patterns are adorable, but I’m also looking for some new silhouettes. We were recently in Disney Springs on vacation and as much as I adore the Small World print, I left with only a wristlet as I just can’t do another tote so similar to those I own in other patterns. Sadly, I will probably pass on this gorgeous Alice pattern for this reason. I know the messenger style used in the 40th, 55th, and Paris Retro line was incredibly popular and people would love to see its return for some of these newer patterns…along with styles we haven’t seen at all.

  • Price tags on the Alice letter carrier?

    • @Stacey – Here are the retails for the “Tea Time” collection. Please note that all retails are subject to change without notice:
      ———–
      Shopper Tote – $248
      Large Crossbody – $198
      Wristlet – $98

  • Why has Dooney and Disney stopped with the backpacks. I have the sketch pattern and keep looking for new patterns, but never see backpacks. Are you ever going to release backpacks again?

    • @Paige – Thank you for the feedback. I’m not aware of current plans for that option but it’s something the accessories team may consider for the future.

  • I have never purchased from the app before. Are disneyland resort (CA) signature annual passport discounts honored? Can you apply disney gift cards toward the purchase?

    • @Heather – All Passholders can receive a 10% discount. This option is for both Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort Passholders regardless of pass type. At this time, Disney Gift Cards aren’t accepted when using the Shop Disney Parks app. The team advised they may be accepted later this year starting around the holiday season.

  • Do you have the dimensions of the shopper tote?

  • All super cute prints, but for the price, I am disappointed to learn these aren’t leather as well.

  • I am also very sad to see they released these same styles again. Please release some crossbody styles soon! Pretty please!

  • I can’t believe that we can not pick our own purses!! Placement is everything with these styles. I have been saving for months, and planned to take a day trip to Disney Springs to pick my BATB bag. My family even gave me two Disney gift cards to put with my $$$. I own 4 other Disney Dooney bags and each was picked out for special placement. Disney has really let us down.(: (:

  • Why can’t the app accept paypal? The only credit card I use is a paypal one, so I can’t get a bag. 🙁

  • Sorry, new to the D&B Disney bag. I have been waiting for a print I just had to have before purchasing and I LOVE the Dumbo print. However, I’m confused about “placement” that everyone seems so upset about. You want to pick it out at the park to choose placement? What does that mean?

  • Sorry if I missed this, do you know the dimensions of the bags? Thank you

  • I would have absolutely loved the Alice bag if it would have had the white rabbit on it instead of the Cheshire Cat. How can they do a Alice in wonderland bag without the white rabbit! Please do a bag with the Disney bunnies!

  • Hi, I’m super excited about the B&B bags. I’m an annual passholder. How do I use my discount on my the app. Thanks

  • Theresa O.
    – The print placement is different on every bag. Some people like to pick their bags out in person so they can get good placement of the characters on the bag ( for example- getting Mickey front and center on the bag) I waited to get my Haunted Mansion Dooney in person because I wanted the D & B label to be centered in the pattern.

  • These really need to be made available at the parks. As a Disneyland Annual Passholder, we get 20% off if we buy at the parks. If we buy on the App, they are saying we only get 10% off. And honestly, every time I have ever purchased anything on the App, I was never able to use my DL AP for a discount at all. So, not sure how that is going to work. Plus, picking placement is a must for the amount of money that these cost!

  • I can tell from the pics that the Beauty and the Beast tote has a zip top. What type of closures do the Alice and Dumbo totes have? Do they both have zippers or the magnetic snap closures? Thanks

  • You say it MIGHT be available on the Disney Store website…but being from the UK, we’re not able to buy anything from the website! So basically only Americans and Canadians might be able to buy this. Disappointing service from Disney. Well done!

    • @Sarah – I’m sorry to hear of your disappointment. I’ve shared your feedback with the team.

  • I understand that we have to buy these from the app, but is it still possible to have these items delivered directly to my hotel room, since I’ll be at Disneyworld when the style I want comes out? It would be a shame to miss out on one of these because I don’t want to have a package shipped to my home while I’m on vacation at WDW!

  • I love the new prints, but agree some new styles would be nice. I am pleased to hear the new prints will be released on the app. I live out of state and missed the debut of It’s a Small World at Disney Springs. It would be wonderful if the free gift (charms cosmetic case) with purchase was available on the app too.

  • Dooney and Bourke is usually excluded from discounts. Had that policy changed?

    • @Lyn – From my understanding, discounts would apply.

  • At what time will these items be made available for purchase on their respective dates? i.e. 7am, or what?

    • @Nicholas – I don’t have a confirmed time as to when these items will be released on Shop Disney Parks app.

  • I am from New Zealand and can’t download the app; are these only available to US residents? I am a huge Dumbo fan and would love to purchase one of the new bags. I am visiting Disneyland in early November, is it possible to purchase it while I am visiting?

    • @Kathryn – At this point, I’m not aware of plans to carry that bag at Disneyland Resort. I’m only aware of Shop Disney Parks app and possibly the Disney Parks online store.
