This box included a notice that Disney Park Pack is releasing a new Limited Edition in July – the Disney Park Pack – Holiday Edition! (Not up yet, but keep checking back!)

Here are the Park Pack pins for June!

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!

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!

Blue: $10.95. Yellow: $12.95.

Toad’s Taxi Service Pin: Well, last month was my favorite box, but clearly this has to be the best pin ever! Mr. Toad is a separate piece attached to the top and I just love this retro throwback piece. They could have sent anything Mr. Toad and I would have been happy.

If you’re a Disney World person like me…  Wheeee!disney park pack pin trading box june 2016 tiki room
Michael! I love the super shiny gold totems, the layering, and this is overall a super hefty pin (also the brushed gold made it extremely difficult to photograph!).

So far, one of my favorite #parkpack pins. #disney #pincollection

The variations on this pin surprised me. I thought for sure the dark background would be a “fade-in” variation like we’ve seen in other previous boxes, but the bird was different! This one is Pierre! The four birds are the Masters of Ceremonies in the Tiki Room attraction!


José!

Peter Pan Never Grow Up: This is a super cute pin with another classic Fantasyland attraction! disney park pack pin trading box june 2016 IMG_2709

I was surprised to see that this was a layered pin too.

Which pin was your favorite this month? I loved all of them and this was my second favorite box ever but Mr. Toad was the clear favorite!

    Oh WOW this was an awesome month for pins. They are all so great. I love the Tiki room and miss Mr Toad. I’m just not a huge Pooh person so that ride doesn’t do it for me. I think I told you that the only character Caleb asked to meet was Peter Pan and his line is crazy long and in the sun. Once we saw him Caleb was done and ready to leave. LOL

      E is absolutely terrified of the Pooh ride!!! won’t ride it! Although he wouldn’t ride PP until last time and now it’s his second favorite. Nothing touches It’s a Small World for that little guy.
