Here are the Park Pack pins for July!

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!

Hades “Devilishly Handsome” Pin: It’s Hades, from Hercules! Disney must be gearing up for Halloween season! This is a “silver” pin and will sell for $8.95 when it’s released.

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad Limited Edition Pin: This LE pin is beautiful! I love the burnished gold mountains, and the fact that we got an attraction pin this month too! There are different kinds of variations with the LE pins in this subscription box – this style has different variations for the background – so far I’ve seen blue, turquoise and dark blue/black (not sure) – and this time there’s a twist – the placard on the front has different styles!

A nice thick pin – and even the back was shaped along with the contours of the front.

If you’ve never ridden this ride, here’s a picture.

Madam Mim Pin: Madame Miiiiim! This is definitely a throw-back villain – from the classic Sword in the Stone! Disney definitely has Halloween on its mind!

Unusually, this pin has 2 backs to keep it in the right orientation. It’s a green pin, so worth $6.95 in the parks.

Which pin was your favorite this month? This wasn’t my favorite month and it was a pretty low value for the open pins – but I think they made up for it with the BTMRR pin – which will take its place next to our other pin for that ride – it’s my daughter’s favorite.

FYI – if you check out with your Disney Visa and spend $50 you’ll save 10% on your order with coupon code DRVCMEMBER. I am sure it only applies to the first order of the subscription, but if you do have the card, it works on any Disney Store purchase.

    oh I’ve been waiting for this one since I saw the pics. I love the BTMRR pin. That is a great one. The other ones are just ok and maybe a little odd for July since you are right and they scream Halloween. I would have expected summer ones this month.
