Disney Park Pack June 2017 Subscription Box Review – Pin Trading Edition

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.

This box has recently revamped. Previously this subscription included 2 open edition (released to subscribers before they’re made available to the public) plus a totally exclusive limited edition pin with 4 variations. This box now only includes open edition pins.

Here are the Park Pack pins for June! There is no information card for this box, and I alawys wish they’d included a curator’s note – maybe with names for these pins and perhaps a matching exclusive postcard.

Unlike the previous version of this subscription, this box is a tear apart box.

Disney Pins are the perfect souvenir – small, not too expensive, and fun to collect.

This month there were Green and Yellow pins – $8.99 MSRP for the green,  and $12.99 for Yellow. That gives a retail value just under $34.97 for this $29.99 box ($3 more than last month).

Star Wars BB-8 Join The Resistance Pin ($15.95 on Amazon)

It’s great to see a pin with a feature and the spinner “belly” on BB-8 is perfect!

Disney The Magic Kingdom 45th Anniversary Tinker Bell Pin ($23.45) This pin was released fall 2016 – so it’s not even early access to this open edition.

It’s super pretty and I love the gems.

Pirates of the Caribbean Skull Profile Pin ($10.79)

This pin has a sharp black/white/silver design and was released Spring 2017.

I’m really puzzled with what Disney is doing with this subscription – I have no idea why they brought it back if they’re going to just send out old stock. There’s nothing exclusive about the box. These are good pins – but I’m hearing that heavy traders & collectors already have everything they have been sending out.
