Donald is getting his very own collection of Dooney and Bourke. You be the judge on this one.

One of the most popular collaborations in Disney merchdom is Disney and Dooney & Bourke. People love to collect and carry these bags with their Disney-inspired designs. You will see them strolling all over the parks if you keep an eye out.

In fact, one of our very own Kenny the Pirate writers has one of the most amazing collections I (Katie) have ever seen. You can check out her dream closet and her magical handbag collection here, here, and also here (it’s big).

Now, your favorite Disney duck is getting his turn to have his very own Dooney & Bourke collaboration. Disney just announced that Donald will be featured in an upcoming collection.

However, Disney Dooney fans are divided as to whether this fowl bag is fair or foul. Some are saying “Oh Boy,” but others are saying “Oh Phooey”

The new print features Donald Duck in abstract form. It reminds me a bit of one of Picasso’s continuous line sketches with a few pops of blue and orange added to highlight his beak, feet, hat, shirt, and bowtie.

The handles and trim are navy blue. The hardware is goldtone as usual.

All the Details on the Release

Those who love it will be able to purchase it on shopDisney very soon. These bags come waddling in on Monday, August 29, 2022. It will most likely come to the parks at some point as well, but so far there is no known drop date.

And, if people are as divided on it as they claim to be, you may even be able to pluck one at Character Warehouse eventually.

The design will be available on a satchel, tote bag, and crossbody camera bag. There is also a limited release MagicBand floating around the parks. It is a run of 3000.

  1. Don’t really care for that. It would have really been cute if they would have put Donald and Daisy on there but not abstract just regular Donald and Daisy.

  2. I bet Donald would lose his temper about the divide. What side he is on though and which one he would also lose his temper too, I don’t know. Someone should ask him about it.

  3. They probably just wanted to be artistic with it. After all they have done it with merch before. That’s why it’s mixed.
