New Dooney & Bourke Haunted Mansion merchandise now available

A new Dooney & Bourke Haunted Mansion collection is now available online and at Disney Parks!

The collection was first released as a Parks exclusive, alongside a Princess Tiana collection. As reported by the Disney Parks Blog, a release party was held on July 22 in the Marketplace Co-Op at Disney Springs.

The handbag artwork was created by Paola Gutierrez, Senior Graphic Designer with Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media Creative Group, and comes in a rich purple hue with a repeating pattern featuring the Haunted Mansion’s Madame Leota. Three bags are available, a Shopper ($268), Letter carrier ($198), and Wristlet ($98).

The letter carrier was my favorite bag in this new collection, seen here at the Marketplace Co-op.

Important to note: pictures on the Disney Blog and elsewhere on the net made the bags, and the band, look more of a blue-violet than a true purple, but as you can see in the photo above, taken at the Marketplace Co-Op at the first weekend of release, the actual bag is a rich, vibrant color.

The Madame Leota design also appears on a limited release retail MagicBand, presented in a specially designed box. As with all MagicBand 2’s, guests can use  their bands to enjoy their Disney vacation to the fullest, with “effortless theme-park entry, FastPass+ redemption and Disney PhotoPass , to skipping the front desk and going directly to your resort room.”

The new Dooney & Bourke Haunted Mansion collection can now be purchased at select merchandise locations at Disney Parks, on DisneyStore.com, or via the Shop Disney Parks app.

New Dooney & Bourke designs available on the Disney Parks App August 2016

An update on the much-awaited new Dooney & Bourke designs, including one for Beauty & the Beast, was shared on the Disney Parks Blog this morning.

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.

Each collection consists of  a shopper tote, a letter carrier, and a wristlet. All three collections are coated cotton. No other configurations are currently planned, which may be disappointing news to some. Also, as stated on the blog and clarified in comments, as of right now at least, these items will be for sale ONLY through the Disney Parks app. There is no current plans for their availability in the Parks themselves. Pricing information was also not released at this time. My feeling: love the designs themselves, wish there was more variation in purses, and imagine the price will be in-line (as in, steep) with other Dooney & Bourke offerings.

 

New Pandora Gift Sets and Charms from Disney Parks

I love my Pandora bracelets — I have one for Disney charms and one for the rest. I like to get a new charm on each trip or special occasion, so that I can look back and remember each one just by looking at my bracelet. Though my list of “must have” charms is already rather long as it is, I can’t resist checking out the new offerings whenever they’re available.

These new Disney Parks Exclusive charms will be available in the fall. The one on the left has a mother of pearl inlay.

Also coming from Disney Parks this fall are four new Gift Sets that include a bracelet, two clips, and a Disney-themed charm. These starter sets are available starting today (July 26, 2016) but in the Parks only — they cannot be purchased through the Disney Parks app.

More from the Disney Parks blog:

If you are looking to start your own PANDORA Jewelry collection, a new option is arriving at Disney Parks on July 26, 2016.

Four Iconic Gift Sets will be released in select merchandise locations such as La Mascarade d’Orleans in New Orleans Square at Disneyland park in California, or Uptown Jewelers at Magic Kingdom Park in Florida.

Each set will include one bracelet, two clips, and one of four different Disney charms. These sets make perfect gifts for loved ones. They are also a great way to jump start your own collection.

These sets will not be available via the Disney Parks online store or the Shop Disney Parks mobile app. You can, however, find many other items by PANDORA Jewelry both online and via the mobile app.

New Vera Bradley Disney-themed bags coming Summer 2016

If you’re like me you love the Disney-themed Vera Bradley bags. I use a hipster every day, and a mini-hipster when I want something light. (Confession: in the parks, though, I go bagless.) There’s exciting news on the Disney Parks Blog for this summer with two new Vera Bradley designs available at Disney Parks and online.

Coming this July 2016, there’s the Mickey’s Magical Blooms collection, which is a variation on the Midnight With Mickey design introduced in the fall of 2013 — and my personal favorite. This new design comes in a Campus Backpack, Mini Hipster and Front Zip Wallet, as well as a Zip ID Case, Medium Zip Cosmetic Bag, Triple Zip Hipster, Vera Bag and Large Duffel.

And in August 2016, the new lightweight Lighten Up Collection will be released. Made of durable and water-resistant 560D polyester, Lighten Up styles are the perfect accessories to use when traveling to or from Disney Parks. The collection will include five of Vera Bradley’s best-selling styles including the Lighten Up Lunch Cooler, Travel Organizer, Expandable Tote, Grande Backpack and Expandable Travel Bag.

These collections will be available in merchandise locations at Disneyland and Walt Disney World. The Shop Disney Parks mobile app (available on both Apple’s iTunes app store and Google Play for Android) may also offer these new designs as well.
