Whether you’re shopping for the holidays or looking to treat yourself, The Walt Disney World Resort is full of unique merchandise Disney ladies will love. From designer handbags to accessories to make work a little more fun, read on to check out our picks for the best items for women.
1. Dooney and Bourke
Dooney and Bourke’s Disney designs offer quality handbags with favorite Disney characters, unique designs, and a variety of color options for every season and occasion. Limited edition designs can sell out quick, and special event designs are often created for runDisney events, holidays, and the festivals at Epcot. Available styles include everything from wallets and wristlets to totes, and prices vary based on the piece. While not all styles are available online, select items may be found on the Shop Disney Parks mobile app.
2. Vera Bradley
Right up there in popularity with Dooney and Bourke is Vera Bradleys’ Disney pieces. These handbags, backpacks, and wallets may not see the widespread popularity that Dooney and Bourke knows, but they are hits among their own devoted fan-base. The soft materials and more subtle hints of Disney makes these pieces great for a more casual look or touring the parks.
3. Kate Spade
The latest designer to join in Disney park merchandise is Kate Spade. These designed are bit more modern and sophisticated with hints of Minnie’s polka dots or ears showing off their Disney-side. Find them throughout boutique-style shops in the parks, and pair them with a Minnie DisneyBound for an upscale yet uniquely “Disney” look.
The sponsor of the Happily Ever After Fireworks Spectacular stocks charms and other jewelery pieces all around the Walt Disney World Resort. Designs include favorite characters, specific locations around the park, and more subtle fairytale elements. Designs change just about yearly, so if you have your eye on a certain piece you may want to purchase it before the artwork changes for the next year.
5. Alex and Ani
Alex and Ani bracelets have become extremely popular with many different events and locations, so it is no surprise that this brand has had so much success at Walt Disney World. From yearly designs to characters and park icons, these bangles can add a touch of class and some Disney theming to an otherwise simple look. Some designs even include Star Wars characters, which brings us to our next item…
6. Her Universe
Her Universe is a brand that creates a geekery of clothing items based on Star Wars, Doctor Who, Disney, and more exclusively for women. Pieces can be found all over the parks, and some of the most popular items you’ll see include Star Wars tank tops, skirts, leggings, and more.
7. The Dress Shop
For DisneyBounders and just fans of vintage fashion in general, The Dress Shop at Disney Springs is the place to be. The shop features retro-inspired clothing based on Disney characters and theme park attractions. The dresses may be upwards of $100, but on a smaller budget it’s still worth a look for the cute accessories or for a more special occasion piece.
8. Ear headbands
What Disney girl doesn’t love a good ear headband? You can find so many unique designs around the Walt Disney World Resort and by using the mobile app, that you’ll have no problem adding some extra style to your look in the parks.
9. Seasonal accessories
From tank tops and baseball caps to winter scarves, many of Disney’s seasonal accessories feature subtle Disney designs that work for outfits both while touring the parks or running errands in your home town. If you can’t get to the parks, you can find a nice array of these items online or on the app.
Whether you scrapbook or use a home office, Disney stationary is a great way to make work a little less boring or spend some time letting out your creative side. It’s very easy to find, in the main stores near the front of each park and online and with the app.
