The Disney news has some fun firsts this week. I was so excited to see that Disney will be featuring Vera Bradley handbags in Walt Disney World! I am sure they heard me talking about it while I shopped on my last trip. I love Vera Bradley’s styles. The handbags are always light to carry. The colors are bright and pretty. It has a free and easy feel. it fits my new age hippy personality. I like that Mickey is there, but not in your face there. Disney is giving a nice option for people who want a Disney look without the in your face Mickey Mouse. This is subtle and classy. You can purchase these styles now on a Disney Cruise. The Disney Fantasy and the Disney Dream are carrying them. If you are visiting the Flower and Garden Festival you can see the designs. They will be on display at the Festival Center. The Center is located between Mission: SPACE and Universe of Energy in Future World at Epcot.The Vera Bradley Disney designs are not for sale in Walt Disney World at this time. I know. What was Disney thinking? They will be available starting in the Fall of 2013 in Disneyland and Walt Disney World.
