Disney Park Pack August 2016 review

Here are the Park Pack pins for August! 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 August 2016 (1)

Disney Pins are the perfect souvenir – small, not too expensive, and fun to collect.  This month there was a silver & a green pin – $6.95 & $8.95 MSRP respectively.

Jack Skellington: Parks are getting ready for Halloween. This one is of course from Nightmare Before Christmas, and quite creepy!

Cinderella: Whew, Cinderella and glitter, thank goodness!

This was my least favorite month of this subscription. I was thankful for glitter but really the two open edition pins weren’t wow or anything special. I think this subscription needs some improvements – as I suggested in the Holiday Park pack, perhaps a nice LE postcard or something to go with!

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.
