Hey y’all-hope your week is going well! This week’s blog post is up later in the week than usual. For one thing, I’ve been super busy moving into a new apartment. Although I literally moved to a renovated unit in the same complex, it’s still been quite a process. Secondly, I was sworn to secrecy regarding the content of this post until today! I’m so excited to finally be able to share, so here goes! Vera Bradley just launched a new Disney collection today, featuring everyone’s favorite Mickey-shaped treats. They kindly gifted me with a couple items from this new collection in exchange for sharing about the launch on Instagram. However, I love this new Vera Bradley Disney collection so much that I wanted to spotlight it here on the blog as well. Keep reading for more details about the new Vera Bradley Disney items in the Mickey’s Sweet Treats and Sweet Treat Ditsy patterns!

My History with Vera Bradley
First of all, I want to share a little backstory about my relationship with the Vera Bradley brand. I received my first pieces of Vera Bradley as high school graduation presents. My parents gave me a Vera Bradley drawstring backpack in a purple floral print in honor of my acceptance into Furman, since their color is purple. In addition, I still have a monogrammed Vera Bradley duffel bag I received as a high school graduation present. I still use it, and it’s in amazing condition! I graduated from high school 17 years ago, so this is a testament to the quality and durability of Vera Bradley pieces. Therefore, it was a natural fit when Vera Bradley reached out to me to promote their new Disney collection launch!
What I Received from the New Vera Bradley Disney Collection
I picked out two products from the new Disney collection for Vera Bradley to send me ahead of time. It was hard to decide what gifted products I wanted, since there were so many amazing pieces to choose from. I wanted to choose the products that would be the most practical for me. In addition, I wanted to pick one item from each of the patterns in the new Vera Bradley Disney collection. I ended up choosing the Vera Tote in Mickey’s Sweet Treats, and the RFID Small Convertible Crossbody in Sweet Treat Ditsy. Here’s a little bit more about each of these products:
Vera Tote in Mickey’s Sweet Treats
The Vera Tote was my obvious first choice when choosing which products I wanted to receive from the new Vera Bradley Disney Collection! First of all, it’s extremely versatile. It’s great for travel, but you can also use it for anywhere you need to tote things around. I frequently used a Vera Bradley tote bag for class in college. However, this Disney Vera Tote is a notch above the VB tote bags from my college days. Not only is it larger, but it zips closed. In addition, it has six interior slip pockets, one exterior slip pocket, one exterior zip pocket, and a hidden pocket up top.
My Vera totes from college had an open top and only one interior slip pocket. Even though I enjoyed carrying them to class (it was a very “Furman Girl” thing circa 2003), the additional organization features of my new Disney Vera Tote would have been nice to have!
I also really love that Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy, and Pluto are interspersed through the Mickey’s Sweet Treats print. Of course, you can see the iconic Mickey Bars as well. And I absolutely love the colors in this print. Also, you can see from pictures that the inside of this tote is lined with Sweet Treats Ditsy. This is the other print in the new Vera Bradley Disney collection. The Disney Vera Tote actually already sold out online. However, you can give the Vera Bradley store in Disney Springs a call at (407) 828-0040 to place a phone order if you would like one.
RFID Small Convertible Crossbody in Sweet Treat Ditsy
The RFID Small Convertible Crossbody is the second item I picked out from the new Vera Bradley Disney Collection. This comes in the Sweet Treat Ditsy print. I love how the Mickey-shaped treats are so prominent in this print. Who else thinks that everything tastes better Mickey-shaped?!
I chose the RFID Small Convertible Crossbody because while it’s small, it holds more than a wallet or a wristlet. There are slots for your credit cards inside, with RFID technology for extra protection. In addition, there’s an interior zipper pocket, and an exterior zipper pocket. The crossbody strap actually detaches, and there’s an additional strap you can put on to wear this as a belt bag/fanny pack. This would be the perfect bag to carry the essentials in the Parks on your next Disney trip. And when you’re at home, it would be great for running errands or going anywhere you don’t want to take a bunch of stuff! The inside of this bag is lined with the Mickey’s Sweet Treats print. The RFID Small Convertible Crossbody is still available online here.
Other Items in the New Vera Bradley Disney Collection
I love the two Disney pieces Vera Bradley gifted me, but there’s other lovely items to choose from! I really like the Weekender Travel Bag, and have already sent the link to my parents requesting it for Christmas! In addition, The Campus Backpack is another one of my favorite pieces in the collection, and would also be very practical.
Then there’s the Medium Cosmetic Bag. It’s one of the less expensive items in the collection, and would make a great gift for any Disney lover. I really like how it has an additional zipper pocket on the front. The RFID Mini Hipster would also be a great lightweight bag to carry in the Parks. And how cozy is this Plush Throw Blanket? It would be perfect to curl up with for a Disney Plus marathon when the weather cools down!
You may shop the entire Vera Bradley Disney Collection here. If you see something you love, I would recommend ordering ASAP, as multiple items have already sold out since this the launch this morning! And if your heart is set on something that is sold out, try giving the Disney Springs store a call.
Vera Bradley x Disney Love
Overall, the new Vera Bradley Disney Collection is perfect for any Disney lover! These new pieces would be great for your next Disney trip. And until you’re able to return to Disney, grabbing some of these pieces is a great way to enjoy some Disney magic at home! (PS. Check out this post for more ways to create Disney magic at home.) Thanks again to Vera Bradley for so kindly gifting me this product and allowing me to be part of this fun and exciting launch!
