Well hello lover!
Disney has done it yet again. Another commemorative runDisney Dooney and Bourke design for the 20th Anniversary of the Walt Disney World Marathon. Commemorative bags were first offered at the inaugural Tinker Bell Half Marathon and then at the 2012 Princess Half Marathon. I love them. So subtle. Wish the runner Mickey had been more prominent in these preview bags though. The design shows “standing Mickey” more then the one random “runner Mickey” sprinkled here and there. Purses will feature a specially embossed tag commemorating the weekend.
Props to Disney for allowing us to pre-order them so we don’t have to rush over to the expo early opening morning. Only downside would be that runners won’t be able to select their bag based on the positioning of the icons. I know this is something that collectors of these bags take very seriously. The letter carrier is priced at $200 and the satchel at $280.
What do you think of the bag design? Thoughts?
