The Story of My Beloved Disney Dooney & Bourke Purse #disney #disneysmmoms

by Carrie with Children with 6 comments

I’m a big fan of anything Disney (as I’m sure you’ve probably noticed by now).  One of my prized possessions is the Dooney & Bourke Disney purse (affiliated link) I received for my five year wedding anniversary. And it comes with a fun story too…

Dooney & Burke Purse at EPCOT

When I was at Disney World for Disneynature’s Chimpanzee movie premiere, we had a free day to spend at the parks.  Our free day also happened to be my wedding anniversary… and I was away from my husband.  On our previous trips to the parks, I would always point out the Dooney & Bourke purses and his response was always “uh huh.. nice.”

So while at the parks on my anniversary – I sent him a text message with a picture of my dream purse – reminding him that I really loved it.  And finally.. after years of asking (or nagging ), he finally agreed to it and replied back “Happy Anniversary”.   And the rest is history.   That’s when my official love affair began with my own D&B purse.

This past week on the Disney Parks Blog, they posted this great behind the scenes look at the Disney Dooney & Bourke collection and I’ve been drooling all week.  These purses are just beautiful!

I’m keeping my fingers crossed that maybe on my tenth wedding anniversary, I can add to my Disney Dooney & Bourkey purse collection. The hard part is deciding on which purse is my favorite!

Which Disney Dooney & Bourke purse do you like the most?

    I love, love, love the burnt leather bag (dark brown pattern burned onto the dark brown leather bag), but it only comes in the really large tote. I’m hoping to get my first runDisney Dooney when I run the Disneyland Half Marathon in September!

    I love my 40th Anniversary WDW D&B! I use it every single day. I just had to have it. We took a family trip to WDW in November 1971, the year they opened. It’s a daily reminder of a wonderful memory.
