I remember the duffel, tote, and backpack were all three $99.00. The mini hipster was $60.00. I wasn't interested in the full size hipster, but seem to remember it was like $10.00 higher than the mini hipster, so $70.00. The phone wristlet was like around $55.00. I just looked online at my credit card and with the AP discount, the total for the large duffel, tote, two mini hipsters, large cosmetic bag, and wristlet were $391.08. I remember I saved like $40.00 with the AP discount.

I went in wanting a backpack, but wanted a larger one, so changed my mind when I saw it was the smallest one. I went with the Vera tote instead, to match the duffel I got. That first day everyone I saw was buying multiple items and walking out of there with huge shopping bags and really huge smiles.

Good luck! I know what you mean by waiting long enough. lol I still wouldn't do it though. The first pink mini hipster they handed me had only one Mickey/Minnie on the whole bag and they had their heads cut completely off. If you didn't know it was a Disney Vera Bradley you would not have been able to tell just by looking at it. If I had paid $60.00 for that bag ($54.00 plus tax with AP discount) I would have been pissed when I got home with it. The second one, the CM did a really good job of finding one with perfect placement.

I'll be back down there Dec 6th-16th and am hoping they have the new blue/green VB Disney print out. If not, I'll just wait until my next trip in May. No way am I ordering online and taking a chance of receiving a bag with no characters on it, (or characters with no heads).

I still wonder how many people got bags with really bad placement of the characters that first morning. Everyone was so excited to get the bags they wanted, that alot were not even looking at them, just grabbing the baskets the CMs handed them and going straight to check out. I did the same thing when the Disney Dooney Bourke bags first came out. I grabbed a wristlet without really looking at it. It had bad placement. I've never been happy with it and never use it.

Well I got my Dooney online and its perfect but its smaller than I expected. I still use it though but I can't put as much in as I want. But it will be great for the parks

One solution to the online ordering is to order more than one of what you want. Then pick the bag with the best placement and return the second bag for credit. You will have to pay the return postage.

Are they going to be available online through Disney or the Vera Bradley website?

We are here now. DTD didn't have much of a selection and neither did a store on Main Street. I didn't see any IDs or wristlets.

Oh my goodness - I really like that blue/green one! I love the subtle mickeys instead of a larger print!

We were there on Monday, September 23 and had no luck getting the black pattern at DTD. We lucked into a good selection at the MK on Monday, September 30. As a previous poster mentioned, make sure you check them over good before purchasing .. the CM had to go to the backroom and search for a mini hipster with Mickey and/or Minnie on it because what was out on the floor didn't have anything but a chopped off piece of either Mickey or Minnie. He was most happy to go searching for me.
