Published October 15, 2013 by Disneyways.com

Today Disney released a first look at the brand new Disney by Vera Bradley collection called “Where’s Mickey?” If you recall, back in August we predicted more Vera by Disney patterns would be released.

I am happy to announce that Steven Miller of the Disney Parks Blog informed us that the new “Where’s Mickey” pattern was release at the World of Disney store in Downtown Disney Marketplace on Tuesday, October 29th! I have seen photos on social networks of the bags in the stores already. No information yet on when the new pattern will be available to purchase on the Disney Store Online. It will be featured on several familiar and popular styles such as the hipster, backpack, large duffel, Smartphone wristlet and more. In addition to a future release at the World of Disney Store in Florida, the “Where’s Mickey?” color will also be available on Disney Parks online store and at select Disneyland Resort locations in the coming months.

Depending on what style you choose, most likely, measurements will be the same as the previous line . You can click either of the pictures below to see those numbers.

Special Announcement: Disney Collection by Vera Bradley Pricing and Measurements

Have you heard about the fantastic Disney Collection by Vera Bradley coming to the Disney Parks and at the Disney Parks on-line store? I scoured the internet to see if I could find price points and measurements for you on the different designs – and I was very excited to find this information to be able to share with you today. The bags are just gorgeous and if you’re wondering if they will fit in to your budget (like I was) – here are some guidelines to follow.

I do want to provide the disclaimer that this pricing was found at Disney World Personal Shopper. Disney has not formally released this information themselves, so I am unable to promise you that it is completely accurate. Also, as with all things Disney, pricing is subject to change. These measurements were taken from similar items on the Vera Bradley website and may not be exact either. Please keep these things in mind and use these figures as a “general” idea.

Date Announced: The Disney Collection by Vera Bradley coming to Walt Disney World!

Published August 14, 2013 by Disneyways.com

HOORAY!! Disney has  announced a date for the big release of the Disney Collection by Vera Bradley. More great news: they are calling this the “initial” collection – which makes me think there will be more of these bags to come. Cathy Dawson, merchandiser for accessories at Disney Parks says, “We are thrilled to introduce Vera Bradley to our accessories assortment. 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.”

Vera Bradley names all of her patterns and these are no exception. 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.

Earlier this year, I visited the  Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival  to get these photos for you of the bags on display. Needless to say, I am in love with these new bags, and I hope you are too!

Guests in Florida, mark your calendars! Disney will be holding a special release party on Saturday, September 21, at the World of Disney in Downtown Disney Marketplace. The event will begin at 7:30 a.m., and will feature the first opportunity to purchase items from this new collection.

In California, guests can find these new items starting Monday, September 23, in select locations at the Disneyland Resort.

If you are unable to visit Disney Parks, no worries!  Disney will be releasing the Disney Collection by Vera Bradley on the Disney Parks online store starting in October 2013.

Star Wars Droid Factory at Hollywood Studios

Published January 7, 2013 by Disneyways.com

If you feel a tremor in the Force, it might be because of a new merchandise feature at Disney’s Hollywood Studios opening in time for Star Wars Weekends.

The new Droid Factory is a build-your-own toy experience within the Tatooine Traders store near the Star Tours ride. For those not familiar with the intracacies of the Star Wars universe, it’s basically R2-D2 and his pals. R2-D2 is an astromech droid, and R2 is just one of a slew of said droids.

Disney Parks released a video  showing details of the new feature. In the video, Disney Parks toy designer Brad Schoeneberg said, “One of the problems I had when I was a child was that in my droid playset, I never had enough droids. You need a droid army.”

“Now with the Droid Factory, you can actually build and name your very own action figure.”

It’s similar to the build-your-own light saber or even the build-your-own Mr. Potato Head shopping options found at Disney stores.

According to the Disney Parks blog, the idea for the Droid Factory has been around since 2009. At launch, there are 71 different pieces available from which fans can build literally thousands of permutations of the 3 3/4-inch toys. You can read more details about what’s available on their blog.
