I am already way over budget for my upcoming Walt Disney World vacation in October. There are just so many things I want to do; behind the scenes tours, amazing restaurants, special fireworks and dining events, and of course, Food and Wine Festival.
On Wednesday, Disney Parks Blog released a preview of the merchandise that will be available for the 20th anniversary of Food and Wine Festival. I am reaching for my credit card already!
Of course the first thing I noticed here is a new Dooney and Bourke design!! I love it so much! I really like how the background is a dark blue, rather than black, which compliments the light brown leather accents really nicely.
I am really like the color palette they chose for the clothing, the grays and white really make the purple and red pop. I am not the biggest fan of Figment (hey, you either love him or hate him), but the dark gray shirt just might make it home with me after the festival. I think the chef’s hat would be a cute souvenir for kids who are interested in helping their parents cook in the kitchen.
I’m a sucker for wine glasses and kitchen wares, and these festival wine glasses are great! They will definitely be an added addition to my wine rack later this year.
More purses!!! I may have a bit of an obsession. Moving on, the Swedish chefs Vinylmations are super cute and a great addition to any Vinylmation collection. I think the dinner ware is nicely designed, though I can’t see myself using them on a daily basis, and for the price tag that I’m sure they come with, they may be too pricey to only use once or twice a year.
These tea towels and cooler are my favorite from this group. I like the idea of bringing my lunch to work in a Food and Wine Festival lunch pack. I’m interested to find out how big it actually is and whether it would be good for every day lunches, or more for packing a cooler to take to the beach.
Overall, I’m excited about this merchandise preview. I’m loving the classic designs and color palette and I can’t wait to visit the parks and see move of what they have to offer.
