With some great new additions, returning favorites, and expanding offerings you are sure to find a Christmas ornament that speaks to you or is a perfect gift for a friend!

In today’s Pick Six, I am taking a look at a few of my favorite Walt Disney World Christmas Ornaments!

1. Princess and Villains Shoes

Walt Disney World Christmas Ornaments

What I wouldn’t give to have REAL shoes just like this series!!!!

Designed to resemble the costumes and stories of each Princess and Female Villain, these high heel shoe ornaments don’t miss a detail.

This pair of Ariel pumps are to die for!

2. Occupation Christmas Ornaments

 Walt Disney World Christmas Ornaments

If you love what you do, are looking for a great gift for a co-worker, or a special gift for a service provider you might want to consider the Occupation Christmas Ornaments.

Mickey and Minnie not only depict everyday jobs, but they also are all dressed up for some of the most iconic Walt Disney World Cast Member roles.

This Minnie Mouse Tour Guide stole my heart!!!

3. Attraction Based Ornaments

 Walt Disney World Christmas Ornaments

Being far away from Walt Disney World for the holidays is always tough, but one way to make it a little easier and to show your family & friends your favorite attraction is by displaying Attraction Based Ornaments.

The Haunted Mansion has an ever expanding merchandise line, thank goodness, and this new ornament is absolutely adorable and fun!

4. Characters

Walt Disney World Christmas Ornaments

We all have our favorite Disney Characters, mine in Minnie Mouse, and you can find some really great character Walt Disney World Christmas Ornaments.

They have a HUGE variety of character ornaments, and you will be surprised to see some of your favorite characters that don’t always have a ton of merchandise have their own ornament.

This WALL-E and Eve ornament is one of my favorites, because it captures the spirit of the movie and their characters!

5. Mickey Ear Hat Ornaments

Walt Disney World Christmas Ornaments

This year the Mickey Ear Hat Ornament line has expanded greatly with new character designs, limited edition sets, and even attraction designs now available.

I love how this Big Thunder Mountain Mickey Ear Hat Ornament has trains running on both sides and great details from the ride!

6. Traditional Christmas Ornaments

 Walt Disney World Christmas Ornaments

If you are more of a traditionalist when it comes to choosing your Christmas Ornaments, you will love the line of glass ornaments that were created exclusively for Walt Disney World.

Glass ornaments with this level are generally expensive, but for the size and craftsmanship of these ornaments you can’t go wrong!

Also a really fun way to plus your Walt Disney World Christmas Ornaments is to have them personalized! For $3.00 per word at Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe at the Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Days of Christmas at Downtown Disney Marketplace, Cast Members with better handwriting than you and I could ever dream of having can add dates and names to a lot of fun Walt Disney World Christmas Ornaments!

I’d love to hear and even see what some of your favorite Walt Disney World Christmas Ornaments are hanging on your trees and displays!

Disney Collection By Vera Bradley Preview

If you are anything like me, I am BEYOND excited for the Disney Collection by Vera Bradley bags to be available in the parks and online!!!

My Mother has given me a Vera Bradley bag for every holiday and birthday for as long as I can remember, and at my baby shower she got Zoe and I matching duffle bags and purses to use when we were coming home from the hospital! And now that two of my favorite things are about to come together, I am almost giddy!

Disney Vera Bradley Patterns Disney Collection by Vera Bradley

I love how the Disney Collection by Vera Bradley stays true to the spirit of both Vera Bradley and Disney, and is a very vibrant color palate and I love how Mickey and Minnie are arm-in-arm!

Disney Vera Bradley Patterns Up Close Disney Collection by Vera Bradley

Midnight with Mickey is my favorite, because I love a great black purse and the colors are awesome!

Just Mousing Around is a lot of fun, and as the more whimsical of the two patterns it is going to be great collection for the spring or as a way to brighten up a dreary winter day!

Fans of Vera Bradley will notice that the prices of the Disney Collection by Vera Bradley bags are a little higher than bags in the current collection. However these prices are highly competitive against the Disney Dooney & Bourke and LeSportsac lines.

Disney Collection by Vera Bradley

This morning I will be attending the media sneak peek of the Disney Collection by Vera Bradley, and I will be keeping you updated with pictures and information from the event on our Twitter and Facebook pages!

However, there will be a fun release party for the Disney Collection by Vera Bradley that will take place on September 21, 2013. This event is open to everyone willing to get up a little earlier than usual and will begin at 7:30 a.m. in the World of Disney at the Downtown Disney Marketplace at the Walt Disney World Resort.

Steven Miller shared a lot of great info on the Disney Parks Blog about the release of the Disney Collection by Vera Bradley that is good to keep in mind if you are planning on attending the release party!

First, I’m happy to announce that Barbara Bradley Baekgaard, Vera Bradley Co-founder and Chief Creative Officer, will also be attending the September 21 party. Barbara will be meeting with fans that morning from 8:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. A limited number of wristbands to meet Barbara will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis to guests who make purchases that morning.

Disney Dooney and Bourke D23 Expo Launch

Disney Dooney and Bourke

Amid a ton of buzz and excitement, a new pattern of Disney Dooney and Bourke purses debuted at the D23 Expo Dream Store.

As you can see from the picture above, this pattern is a twist on a familiar favorite pattern! I was not a huge fan of the Disney Dooney and Bourke comic pattern in the past, so I was really interested in seeing this new addition in person.

The negative comic, no name has been formally given so this is what I am going with, is a very dark pattern. And while we have seen more patterns shift to a black background this bag takes it to another level.

I am always on the lookout for a black purse, and these bags are great! I really like the grey that they chose, and since the pattern features such a dark color palate it feels more sophisticated and ‘dressy’. But, I really think that these would look great with a red and white polka dot scarf tied to the strap to add a little whimsy and fun to the bag!Disney Dooney and Bourke Tassel Tote

The Disney Dooney and Bourke Totes are my favorite bags!

I tend to gravitate towards larger bags since I seem to NEED to carry everything I own in my purse! The inside features some great pockets and the inside compartment is roomy. The tassels on the side are a really fun touch, too!

Disney Dooney and Bourke Crossbody

The Crossbody Dooneys are starting to grow on me, but I have a hard time fitting everything I need for a day in the parks or shopping in this bag. I adore crossbody bags and while this is a vast improvement over previous crossbody bag designs, it just isn’t my favorite silhouette in the Dooney line.

Disney Dooney and Bourke

And this may sound really strange, but I am most excited about addition of the Pouch to this release! This pouch is a great price point for Disney Dooney and Bourke bags, and is incredibly flexible. At approximately the same size as a men’s toiletry bag, you could really use this pouch for any number of things! With that being said, I think it could also be a great gift for guy travelers to use, too! I am seriously kicking myself for not picking one of these pouches up!!!

Which new Disney Dooney and Bourke bag is your favorite? I know that I will be getting the pouch as soon as I can!

Alex and Ani Disney Bracelets Debut at D23 Expo

Alex and Ani Disney Bracelets

 

At the D23 Expo Dream Store, new designs of the popular Alex and Ani Disney Bracelets debuted and they are awesome!

Alex and Ani creates eco-friendly, positive energy jewelry that is made in America are extremely well made! Designed by Carolyn Rafaelian to incorporate powerful symbolism and design into each (+) energy piece, Alex and Ani pieces are a great way to express yourself and show your love for Disney in a more sophisticated and personal way.

I am a HUGE fan of stacking bracelets, because you really get the chance to express yourself through your choices of charms and designs. And while I have seen the Alex and Ani Disney Bracelets around property, I never gave them a try. I have wide hands, so usually bangles are a problem for me to wear. However, since they are expandable the Alex and Ani Disney Bracelets are a great fit for any size wrist or hand!

At the Alex and Ani area inside the D23 Expo Dream Store, I had a chance to see some of the new Disney bracelets that will be hitting the parks soon!

This was a D23 Expo Exclusive Alex and Ani Disney Bracelet Pouch.

Something to keep in mind about the Alex and Ani Disney Bracelets in the park is that they tend to fly out of stores! So if you are in the parks and see one that you want…Buy it now!!! There is absolutely nothing worse than wanting something that you can’t find later!

Here is where you can find the Alex and Ani Disney Bracelets in the Parks:

Walt Disney World Locations

Uptown Jewelry, Agrabah, Pirates Bazaar, Emporium, Once Upon a Time, Tower of Terror, Hilton Bonnet Creek, Ink and Paint, Mouse Gear, Calypso, Donald’s Double Feature, Everything Pop, World of Disney, and TrenD.

Disneyland Locations

Emporium, Pieces of Eight, Le Baten Rouge, Gone Hollywood, Treasures in Paradise, World of Disney, and Disney Vault 28.

The Alex and Ani Disney Bracelets are really are quite comfortable to wear, and I can’t wait to start my stack!!!

Animal Kingdom Merchandise

We have been showing a ton of love to Animal Kingdom this week, so I thought I would keep the ball rolling by taking a look at their large variety of merchandise.

With so many different lands inside of Animal Kingdom, the merchandise does a great job staying true to not only the message but location sold in the Park. Also, a you will be able to find merchandise that gives back to different foundations, such as the Disney’s Worldwide Conservation Fund, when you purchase them.

I hope that you enjoy this look at the merchandise that Animal Kingdom has to offer!!!

The center of each bag, along with the messenger strap, both feature the adorable Small World characters, representing children from many different cultures around the world.

The FEED Our Small World shirt is cream-colored and made of cotton and polyester. Each shirt purchased* will help UNICEF supply 150 children with a year’s worth of essential Vitamin A supplements.
