What better way to carry your Disney souvenirs, tickets, and water bottle than in a handy Disney mini backpack. The park has announced that it will begin selling these stylish bags named after some of their most beloved rides.
According to Disney Style, "We love a good mini backpack for a trip to the Disney Parks. They’re the perfect carry-all for your necessities, and thanks to Loungefly, come in so many Disney-inspired styles. And we have a feeling that once you see the newest Disney Loungefly backpacks, you’re going to want to make some room in your closet."
The “It’s a Small World” backpack features white and gold smiley-face details, while the "Haunted Mansion" backpack is purple and black, and decorated with the wallpaper design from the ride.
The bags range from discrete to die-hard Disney fan. The rainbow Mickey backpack comes with mouse ears and buttons similar to those on Mickey’s pants.
The backpacks have been designed in collaboration with Loungefly, a company that creates other Disney-inspired bags. The backpacks will be available at Walt Disney World and Disneyland parks soon, though there is no official date. They are expected to cost between $70 and $85, Disney Style says.
Loungefly, which began in a Southern California warehouse in 1998, is a small team of people who design and sell unique yet affordable bags, accessories, and t-shirts. They are known for their skull print totes and wallets, as well as their licensed accessories for Disney, Hello Kitty, My Little Pony, Paul Frank, Crowded Teeth, Peanuts, and more. Their products are available in specialty stores and boutiques across the US.
Disney already sells a number of bags based on their most iconic characters and films, including The Lion King Mini Backpack by Loungefly, the Minnie Mouse Fuzzy Pink Backpack, the Belle from Beauty and the Beast Backpack by Danielle Nicole, and the Monsters University Backpack, among many others.
The new mini backpacks are already a hit on Instagram with users, such as @designdazzle commenting, “Wow! They are so cute,” and @ktmoeglein, saying "Any idea when they’re going on sale? I may have to take the day off work to go get one!!!"
