  1. Ida says:

    I have 2 of them one big and one small one. I figure
    People but Coach so why not. Mine both look brand
    New and I have had them for a while. It is will worth it
    If you really like Disney!!!

  2. Becky says:

    I love the Dooneys, I think the designs are awesome, but I doubt I will ever own one. It’s one of those things that I just can’t justify spending that much money on. Even when I factor in potential discounts, I can’t help but think of the other things I could spend that money on. But I still like to dream about it 😉

  3. DeAnna says:

    I own a couple of Dooneys, but no Disney ones. But one day……..

  4. Misha says:

    I actually own one that I purchased from the Dooney & Bourke outlet. I only paid $115 for a tote bag. I receive compliments all the time and people always ask me where did I buy it.

  5. Sammie says:

    I would never pay that kind of money for a purse, not worth it to me. Not something I would ever enjoy. Glad others do, but not this girl.

  6. Sammy says:

    I own quite a few D&B’s from before I had kids lol. My husband bought me one of the Disney wristlets when we were there for Christmas last year because he knew I loved the Disney D&B’s but wouldn’t buy one for myself. I love it and it has become my every day go to wallet/purse when I am trying to get myself and three young kiddos out the door…I dream of owning another one. I love purses and Disney and this is a perfect combination of two things I enjoy 🙂

  7. Mary says:

    I have an extremely generous hubby…However, I will say that we have had coupons for the 3 that I own. Two of them, we had 25% off coupons, plus (not sure if it was really allowed), the cast member took off another 10% because we had the Disney Visa. The third one was online at They were having a sale, and already had a crossbody reduced, and again, there was a coupon code for 25% off and free shipping. I am very choosy about what I pick, though… not just on a whim…but I do think about it…. oh… and no… for you ladies that are thinking it… he doesn’t have any brothers and I’m not sharing… he’s a real sweetie of a guy and I love him to pieces :)…

  8. I have wanted a Disney D & B for years, but found it hard to justify the cost. However I just went on a Caribbean cruise with my daughter and while in San Juan PR we found a Disney purse at the D & B outlet for 50% off. They only had one… the satchel with the red Minnie Bows. It is now mine…such fun and a great bargain as well.

  9. Stacy Stuart says:

    I have two Disney Dooney and Bourkes. I use my Disney visa rewards dollars to buy them. I also ask hubby for Disney gift cards for birthday or anniversary and put those towards them as well.

  10. rose fieldhouse says:

    I want to buy my first Disney Dooney when we go to Disney World next month. Does any body know which shops have them ?

    • Amanda says:

      Lots of the resorts have them in gift shops, World of Disney at Downtown Disney, Mouse Gears in Epcot, and a shop on the right side of Main Street in the Magic Kingdom (next door to Crystal Arts.) Nice gift shops in the Contemporary and the Grand Floridian…Good luck, and have fun shopping! ~A.

  11. Andrea says:

    I thought I never would own one but my husband got me one for our anniversary. I love it and get compliments on it all the time!!!!

  12. Carolyn says:

    I never thought I would own one but kept seeing people with them and wanted one. So for Christmas I asked for Disney gift cards and bought mine that way. If it was not for the gift cards I would not have one. I love it.

  13. Something to keep in mind-watch your dining receipts. I bought my D&B after I got a 20% off coupon on my meal ticket.

  14. iiPaduser says:

    I’ve spent ions searching for the Dooney Triple Zip Letter Carrier in red. No 8″ size-that’s just too small. The one I saw that I like has gold-tone hardware and it’s sort of a brick red or bright russet. This is the only bag I ever want. Slightly used and reduced is fine. Does anyone have any leads or know of someone selling one?

  15. Jenn says:

    Yes! I used the reward dollars from my Disney Visa to pay for most of it! I carry it at home and of course, every time I go to Disney! I am a big fan of Dooney and Coach and although I rarely pay full price for their items, I consider them an investment. They are timeless and last forever.

  16. Julia says:

    I have been trying to find the White Balloon Colette D & B for a long time now. Does anyone know where I can find one. I have saved and saved for it and now I can’t find it.
    Please Help.

  17. Stacy says:

    Would eBay be the best place to sell a Disney Dooney & Bourke?

    • Amanda says:

      I’m voting yes. I love shopping there, and if you price it reasonably, you can get a lot of your $ back. Let me know how it goes!

      • Stacy says:

        Thanks. What would you consider overpriced? I appreciate the feedback!

        • Amanda says:

          Type in your bag and see what the going prices are- average prices anyway. Then go for $10 or $20 less if you want it to sell faster. Or go with the average price and see what happens!

  18. Stacy says:

    That’s what I did. Thanks!

  19. Julia says:

    I tried E-Bay but they did nit have the bag:(
    I keep looking there and Amazon and a few other places but no luck.

  20. Sammy says:

    I own a Disney Dooney wristlet, a Dianey Minnie Mouse bows tablet case and I just ordered the haunted mansion satchel and haunted mansion weekender bag! I absolutely LOVE the Disney Dooney and Bourke products! They not only look insanely cute but are such high quality! Totally worth the price tag in my opinion!

  21. Sarah says:

    You also have to think in terms of longevity when making a purchase like this I have had one of my Dooneys’ for almost 20 years. So obvi yes they are expensive but well worth it.
