When Disney Parks Blog announced a partnership between Vera Bradley and Disney to result in two new Mickey and Minnie Mouse inspired designs, I nearly jumped out of my chair with excitement. I must have a Disney Vera Bradley bag!
Unfortunately, it was a bit of a tease because the new line of bags will not be available until fall 2013. (Tear.) So we will all have to wait. But they say, “Good things come to those who wait.” And I believe the new Disney Vera Bradley bags are worth the wait. (I also predict the future success of this partnership to inspire many new designs down the road, think Dooney and Bourke. But that’s just my personal prediction.)
For those who can’t wait to see the bags in person, they are currently on display at the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival in the Festival Center, located between Mission: SPACE and Universe of Energy in Future World through May 19, 2013.
In the fall these lovely bags will be available 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. I guess I will just have to go to Disney to get myself a bag in the fall!
Of course, the only question remains — which pattern will I choose?
