It's basically yellow more than gold.

I don't like the new bag. I love the backpack and welcome the idea of a messenger bag as well. The new bag looks too feminine and not universal.

Odd, we just returned from a cruise and it was the same one as the last 3 years.

Bummer! We sail on our second cruise in Feb, and was looking forward to getting our CC Backpack! It looked like something DH would also be willing to tote around. Now this one, I agree with other posters that this is definitely on the more feminine side.

Guys don't mind backpacks, but stay away from the totes!

Glad I was able to give some warning to the guys out there. I had to use it as I had little else to use other than a string backpack from DVC.

If you've seen the material they use for the lanyards they sell in parks now it is the same. They are printed instead of embroidered. They are less scratchy but also less durable. We are platinum so didn't get one of the new versions, which seems to be only available in silver for now.

We use our lanyards at WDW so I'll happily keep a few of the embroidered versions around.

Based on the picture and the reports of how flimsy it is, I am not impressed with this new tote bag. I'm sure DH will be even less so. I am glad we each already have one of the backpacks. We have found our backpacks to be very useful.

Sounds nice they changed things up again. Though apparently they will never make everyone happy.

I'm glad they made a change- I love my back pack and drawstring bag, but nice to have something new! Just hope they stop falling apart- that is going to be a headache for them AND us-
