I just returned from a Disney vacation. My husband and I traveled in September 2013. As with every other Disney vacation we made sure to save room in our suitcases for the Disney souvenirs we would be getting. I did not have any particular Disney souvneirs in mind. Tim knew he wanted a travel mug. He was on a mission from the moment we knew we were heading to Walt Disney World. He was looking for a travel mug that had a lid that would not catch his mustache hairs in it. This is apparently a problem with some travel mugs. He was successful with the mug pictured here. The lid screws on and is very secure. For those of you with mustaches, it is the perfect travel mug. Your mustache will not get caught in the lid. It is not too big around. This means it will fit nicely in most any spot in your car that is made to hold a cup. He found it at the store at the Polynesian. They are available at World of Disney in Downtown Disney, too. I liked it so much that I bought a similar one with a different design. It keeps my coffee nice and hot and I use it every day. I also really like the feel of the handle. It is sturdy and offers a nice grip. Continue reading Disney Souvenirs ~ Disney World Favs!
No one was more excited than I was to hear that Vera Bradley was joining with Disney and creating Disney Vera Bradley bags! The new Disney souvenir debuted in September of 2013 in Walt Disney World and Disneyland. I am all about Vera Bradley bags. I have a few different styles. I like that they are lightweight. I love the many pretty colors and styles. The thought of Vera becoming whimsical with the Disney Vera Bradley designs was pretty intriguing. As designs were released I was not disappointed. In fact, not only are the color designs amazing, but the bag designs are perfect. It looks like the Disney touch plused this product. I bought a mini hipster Disney Vera Bradley bag. It is pink and has Minnie lounging on a flower right on the front. I love it! Continue reading Disney Vera Bradley Bags! Mini Hipster
