disney park pack may 2016 box

It’s the best Park Pack Ever! Disney Park Pack: Pin Trading Edition is a monthly mystery pack from the Disney Store.  Every month in this subscription you’ll receive three official Disney pins – 2 open edition (released to subscribers before they’re made available to the public) plus a totally exclusive limited edition pin. The limited edition pin has a run of 500 each and there are 4 variations of the pin.

FYI – Disney has started expanding the Park Pack – see my review of the Disneyland Memorabilia Limited Edition Park Pack! I can’t wait to see even more editions and I really really really want a Polynesian Park Pack!

Here are the Park Pack pins for May 2016. I adore it.

Disney Pins are the perfect souvenir – small, not too expensive, and fun to collect.  There’s no information card for this box, and just like every other month, I wish they’d include a curator’s note – maybe with names for these pins!disney park pack may 2016 IMG_0903

The backs of the pin cards show the prices (via the color coding) for the open editions, but not the exclusive limited edition pin, because it won’t be sold anywhere else. All pins include the Mickey pin-backs!

Silver: $8.95. Yellow: $12.95.

Monsters Inc. Roz Always Watching Pin: ERMAGAWD. This is totally me right now. I also just got reading glasses and everything about this is me. It’s awesome. Alena & I were just saying this weekend there needs to be a reading glasses subscription box with matching chain and optional cardigan add-on.

Also, I’m always watching, my kids would tell you that!

The Little Mermaid Limited Edition Pin: One of 500 in a series of 4 pins – every pin has a different background. This one is absolutely fantastic and captures the moment when Ariel gives up her voice to Ursula! So far I have seen green and blue. This one is really a beautiful classic pin and I love the little shells on the bottom.

There is only one post on this pin – they changed to one post on these framed pins in March. The back is clearly marked with the run of the limited edition.

Cheshire Cat Flirting With Madness Pin: Perfect timing for the new Alice movie landing this week! Cheshire Cat’s head spins totally around!

This was a totally amazing month and I absolutely can’t pick a favorite pin – it’s easily the best month ever for me!
