A sweet welcome note was provided on the top of the box. It was filled with white sizzle and sparkly, blue Mickey Mouse confetti.

Water Bottle

Water Bottle 2

Water Bottle 3

Disney Villains All Around Water Bottle – $9.49

One of the coolest water bottles ever! I love that this is covered in my favorite Disney villainesses. It’s plastic and a nice size too, perfect for bringing water to work.

Paint

Finding Dory Watercolor Paint Set – $2.00

These fish shaped watercolor paints are adorable. My daughter who is two years old just started getting into watercolor painting so this was a fun addition for her especially.

Sanitizer

Minnie Mouse Apple Hand Sanitizer with Backpack Clip – Value $3.23

I’m having trouble finding this for sale individually but I did find it as part of a three pack with other Disney characters. This hand sanitizer smells like apple Jolly Ranchers (which is a good thing in my book!). I don’t use hand sanitizers because I find them drying but I will pass this along to my niece.

Book

Book 2

Book 3

Book 4

Disney Crafts – $7.99

This book is filled with crafts you can make at home with pretty easy to find objects and supplies. The projects are from newer movies like Cars, Toy Story and Monsters, Inc. They have step by step directions with lots of pictures to help you follow along. My favorite though has to be the paper mâché piggy bank that looks like Hamm from Toy Story.

Plush

Mickey Mouse Plush Doll – $16.99

This 9 inch plush doll of Mickey Mouse is an instant favorite in her house. Both of my kids love it! I feel like you can never go wrong with a plush in a house with young kids.

Lip Balm

Frozen Lip Balm – $8.00?

My daughter is a little too young for these mini lip balms right now. She’ll try to eat them most likely so I will pass these along to my nieces instead. They will adore them!

Brush

Brush 2

Disney Hairbrush – $6?

My daughter is in love with Ariel and Jasmine hairbrush. It’s the perfect size for little hands. I love that it’s functional and she loves that it’s pink and has princesses on it. Win-win!

Jellybeans

Mickey Mouse Special Edition Jelly Beans – $1.25

This pack of special edition Jelly Belly jelly beans is so sweet! They are gluten-free, peanut free, dairy free and delicious.

Pin

Pin 2

Disney 2016 Collector Pin – $10.00?

I don’t see this pin available for purchase on the Disney website so I’m estimating the value based off other pins for sale. This is a beautiful pin to add to your lanyard and I love that it has the year on it with some real classic Disney characters and the fireworks in the background. It is quintessential Disney to me!

Verdict: Mickey Monthly, you have seriously impressed me! I can’t imagine any Disney fan not being thrilled with this monthly subscription. The value (with my estimates) is almost $65! The box felt well curated with a mix of functional items, collector’s items and things that appealed to both my son and my daughter. I love how the box was filled up so just when you thought you were done unpacking there a couple items hiding inside. I think this would make a great gift for any Disney fan and a way to keep the Disney magic alive between the trips to Disney itself.

What do you think of Mickey Monthly?

  1. I’m wondering if there is some kind of system in place to ensure that you don’t receive duplicates from previous months?

  2. I just received my 2nd box from Mickey Monthly. I didn’t sign up for this as a means of obtaining very specific items of rare value, I signed up for it to get a little bit of Disney every month. In both boxes, thus far, I have received some “Authentic Disney Parks” items – you can tell from the price tag. Not everything in the box is something I would have purchased for myself, but if I’m not particular to it, there is definitely a family member that would love it! I have the cheap, $19.99, classic subscription and for the 2nd month in a row what I have received well exceeds the price of my subscription. Kudos to them for finding deals to make you feel like you’re getting so much more for your money!

    • I agree! If you want deals and a lot for your money the classic box is a fabulous Disney subscription. Glad you’re enjoying it!

  3. In my experience people either love or hate Mickey monthly. We get the theme park castle size box and my family LOVES it. We have always been super happy with what we get and like the variety of souvenirs and food treats that tide us over until our next vacation. We are so in love with getting the food treats that I have considered a second food only subscription so I don’t have to share with my kids :::shame::: haha

  4. For those asking questions this is what their faqs says “Theme Park Edition boxes contain merchandise only purchased on Disney Property here in Orlando Florida. You will notice the merchandise has a special Disney Parks Logo and is not merchandise you can buy anywhere else. You typically receive around 55% of the value in items in order to bring you this one of a kind experience.

    Original Boxes contain NO merchandise from the Disney Parks and Resorts like the Theme Park Edition does. These boxes are full of Disney Licensed items, which are the kind of merchandise you would buy at a retail store. You can think of it like any other subscription box. It contains items you can get from a local store, but at a discounted price. These boxes contain about 120% of the value you pay in items.”

    “We are not affiliated with Disney, but we are REALLY big fans. Our Theme Park Edition monthly boxes are filled with snacks and souvenirs that we personally purchase at the parks and resorts, then ship to you! It’s like personal shopping but in a fun mystery box every month.”

  5. As I’ve mentioned before, unless this business has a license to sell “official Disney merchandise” they are acting as unlicensed resellers. Disney enforces their trademark and licenses like no one else. I’m frankly shocked they’re still alive and kicking sinc Disney goes after etsy sellers simply using their licensed fabric to make and sell baby blankets. Sellers there get cease and desist letters from Disney every day. I’ve had a client who got hit with a letter and there was no defense against it legally.

  6. As another Disneyland nerd, I’m a little weary of this. Great if you want a little Disney mystery box (or have them curate you something) but not sure it’s otherwise a great deal. I looked at the pin box options and I would not pay $7.95 + shipping for a gently used trading pin, and I’m a little taken aback people are selling that. You’re better off buying pins off the official Disney website or buying their official mystery packs!

    • I know!!! I read that too. Don’t think this is a reputable business to deal with. A little disappointed that My Subscription Addiction didn’t look into them more before giving this a good review.

  7. I have to agree with the other comments about the pin. They sell those in Walmarts near Disney World. Same goes for the other items in the box. If you just like getting Disney stuff, then that’s fine, but these are not OFFICIAL park products.

    • After looking at their website it seems like this is just stuff that they buy at Walmart and stuff in a box to send to you. Buyer beware is all I have to say.

    • Hi Eileen!
      You’re correct this is not their Theme Park box with items sold exclusively in the parks. That review will be coming later this month. This is a box with Disney merchandise curated to send you some fun Disney items each month.
      There are some errors in how this review was posted and it will be corrected to avoid any further confusion.
      This is the Original Mickey Monthly Box (Magic Size – $39) and isn’t park related at all. I’m working on having this fixed.
      Thanks!
      Jessica

  8. I used to subscribe to this box and I think they sent you a nicer box than they send actual subscribers. I received this box for 6 months and they just got worse and worse so I unsubscribed.

  9. Great review-love, love ,love that water bottle!❤

    • Thanks, Katie!

  10. This was the theme park box? Not one of those items is from the parks. Everything there can be found at the cheap gift shops along 192 in Kissimmee, or the walmarts in the area. Any stuffed animal from Disney has an official Disney parks tag, and as for the pin, you can’t find it on the Disney site because it’s not an official Disney product.
    Sorry, I’m a huge Disney nerd. I think the box is ok, but nowhere near the value you’re guessing.

    • Just wanted to add, there’s a difference between official Disney product, and officially licensed Disney product.
      Like I said, the box is fine if it’s the original, but you have it reviewed as “original park” which is a mix of the names of the two available subscriptions.

    • Hi Christina!
      This is not the theme park box. This is a review for the Original Mickey Monthly (Magic Sized) which costs $39. I will be reviewing the Theme Park Box later this month.
      Thanks!
      Jessica

  11. Cute subscription, and it seems like a good value.

    The pin may not be from Disney directly – I live near Disney World and the Target by us has pins like that that are official Disney – just not what you deem “trading pins”. 🙂

    • Thank you, Jackie! I am a trading pin newbie so thanks for letting me know this wouldn’t qualify! ?
