Default Vera Bradley coming to Disney Parks

Okay, so I am super excited for this.

Per Disney Parks blog this morning.

Quote:
posted on March 5th, 2013 by Steven Miller, Merchandise Communications Manager


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.

First Dooney, now Vera! This is getting very dangerous! Lol.

Now I really need to make an October Food and Wine Festival trip happen!

Fortunately, I'm not a Vera Bradley fan. I won't be tempted. I think.

Me too, and I KNOW I won't be tempted.

Glad you gals are excited though. It's fun when Disney teams up with well known brands.

I'll be back in a few to attach the pics, Tonya.

Thanks!

Now, like I said on Twitter, this MIGHT not be as dangerous as it could possibly be for me. I am pretty picky with my Vera designs, I like the all black and white, all blue and white, etc., I do NOT care for the Neon bright, pink prints, etc, which in the pics appear to be the two prints they are releasing. But, we all know how that goes, there will be better bigger more prints as it becomes popular, so HOPEFULLY they stick with the print I don't care for so my wallet won't hurt as much as it could

I sent a million texts to DBF when I saw it, he came upstairs to my office and said, "I think I will have to stop your Disney shopping budget" lol, he knows this is a dangerous thing. He said "Well at least it's pocket books, you don't need anymore" I said "Ummm hello? DO know me? Who ever said there is a limit on pocket books?!" hehe I am so excited I'm going to burst!

I do like how they are trying to appease to the masses though. For those that don't like Dooney or their price tag like BriarRose said, she now has Vera, for those that don't like Vera like Tigg and Mel they still have Dooney, but then it's dangerous times two when there's the fans of both....ugh this is going to be ugly in January on my wallet....lol

This might be what saves my pocket book as well. I too am very picky about Vera designs. I have only liked a handful out of the many, many designs over the years, but the ones I did like I really liked! Lol. I am also more into the smaller accessories. I don't really want/like a huge bag with a print all over. Some of them look like granny bags if you ask me. So if these new Disney prints don't come in small accessories then it might not be too dangerous for me after all. Still excited for the possibilities!

I agree. It's too busy or something for me. But still exciting that there is another brand bringing fun Disney accessories!

Ah I love Vera! And while I thought the Dooney bags were adorable they were outside my price range.

I'm all about these!

Can't believe women still pay the outrageous prices for Vera bags and they're not made in the U.S. anymore.

I was excited until I looked at the Vera Bradley website and saw the prices I do think the bags are cute though. Something I could see myself owning.

I like the dark one. I had one Vera purse I liked but it wore out. I have a Vera wallet with an owl design. May have to get one of the purses.

The Dooney one I have is the dark Mickey balloon pattern that I love and the only expensive purse I have ever purchased but I find it spends all it's time lately in the closet. I don't take it on train trips, it isn't practical for flying trips to WDW and I am Not going to take it to work. Poor little bag hasn't seen the light of day in months!

One thing that used to bug me about middle school kids - they had lots of those Vera bags. Parents have to be crazy to give kids those expensive bags. One of my daughters friends had 20 of them and her family was just a normal middle class family.

Anyone else think the prints are too bright/"springy" to come out in the fall? With such bright colors it would be better suited for a spring release, in my opinion.

Not sure how much I like them. I'm pretty picky about which Vera prints I like and these seem a little too busy for me. I plan to go to the preview at the F&G Festival to see them in person.

This is great news for Vera fans (which I am NOT). At least I won't have to budget big bucks on our next trip for one of these.

Now, if they did a Tink or Lilo & Stitch with a tropical motif, I may be tempted (maybe). I just don't like the prints Vera uses... too granny for my tastes.
