Disney Dooney & Bourke fans, get your wallets ready! In November, the high-end purse company is releasing not just one, but five new patterns on a variety of handbags. And one of the patterns has a Christmas theme, which is a much-sought-after first.
Beginning tomorrow (Nov. 11), shoppers will be able to purchase the Disney Woodland Christmas Dooney & Bourke bags at Disneyland, Walt Disney World and on the Shop Disney Parks app. The holiday bags feature a retro pattern with Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse characters in green and red participating in several traditional Christmas and winter activities, such as exchanging presents, kissing under the mistletoe and sledding on a cream-color background. There also are images of a Disney castle and a mouse-ear Santa hat. The Disney Woodland Christmas pattern will be available on the Tote ($248), the Crossbody ($198) and the Wristlet ($98) pictured from left to right below.
Tip: At Walt Disney World, the Disney Dooney & Bourke Holiday bags will be on sale at the Marketplace Co-Op at Disney Springs Marketplace. The store opens at 10 a.m. Friday (and daily), but shoppers are expected to line up early.
On Monday, Nov. 14, the new Princess Keys pattern will be released only on the Disney Parks app. The pattern is a pale pink background with a collection of keys inspired by Cinderella, Aurora, Ariel, Belle, Rapunzel and Snow White. The available bags are the Zip Zip Satchel ($268), the Tote ($248) and the Large Letter Carrier ($198).
On Friday, Nov. 18, there will be a Disney Dooney & Bourke release party at Cherry Tree Lane inside the Marketplace Co-Op at Disney Springs Marketplace where two new collections will make their debut. The Retro Sticker Collage pattern features images of park attractions and icons, which are always popular. This collection includes three silhouettes — a Tote ($248), a Large Letter Carrier ($198) and a Wristlet ($98). The Walt Disney World Toile collection also depicts favorite sites at Walt Disney World interpreted in a classic pattern. The Toile collection will have a Hobo Satchel ($248), a Tote ($248) and a Large Letter Carrier ($198).
During this special event, guests will have an opportunity to meet Ian Ray, creative director for Dooney & Bourke, from 10:30 a.m. to noon.
The Retro Sticker Collage collection also will be released on Nov. 18 at Disneyland.
Finally, on Monday, Nov. 28, a Disney cat-themed collection will be introduced only on the Shop Disney Parks app. The pattern has a pale blue background with colorful Disney characters, such as the Cheshire Cat and Marie from Aristocats. It will be available as a Zip Zip Satchel ($268), a Letter Carrier ($178) and a Pouchette ($158).
