If Disney were to create a Dooney & Bourke bag for any of its resorts, of course it would have to start with its flagship resort: Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa. The latest and first resort-specific collection to hit Walt Disney Resort, it pays homage to all the classic themes and visual elements incorporated throughout the grounds of the resort. We found it at the resort’s women’s apparel store, Summer Lace. (We make a point to specify because the Grand Floridian has five specialty shops! Very extra, we know.)
The large tote features muted gold hardware and contrasting shades of tanned leather with contrast stitching. The leather is embossed with small filigree emblems with icons in the middle. Let’s take a closer look:
You’ll see the classic Grand Floridian monogram logo, a teapot, a carousel horse, and an umbrella, with Mickeys filling in all the negative space. The resort features many nods to Alice in Wonderland (it has an entire splash area themed after it!) The Villas at Grand Floridian Resort and Spa features a magnificent Mary Poppins fountain, so that’s where the umbrellas and carousel horses come into play.
In the center of the tote is a strip of brown suede leather with the classic Dooney & Bourke gold medal swan logo.
The bottom has metal feet to protect the bottom of your precious purse. The interior features multiple slip pockets and zippered compartments lined in red linen fabric, with green suede lining the top. It’s definitely an interesting color scheme.
The tote retails for $368.00, or roughly $11,632 less than a World of Dreams tour. While the collection initially debuted with a wallet and this tote, the wallet has since sold out. (We’re telling you, these go fast!) Will you be adding this luxe Dooney bag to your collection? (Or is a Loungefly backpack more your style?)
