This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Disney-Treasures-Box-April-2017-0001

Disney Treasures is a brand new subscription box from Funko. Like Funko’s other subscriptions – Smuggler’s Bounty, Marvel Collector Corps, and D.C. Legion of Collectors – this will ship every other month and will be based on a specific theme for each delivery.

This month’s theme was Pirate’s Cove!

This box is available as your first box until April 22nd!

My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

I’m loving the box design – it’s the same in function as their other subscriptions (which is a positive thing), but the treasure chest look is as perfect as it gets.

The Subscription Box: Disney Treasures

The Cost:

‘Traveler’ – For maximum flexibility, choose the Traveler membership. Travelers purchase one box at a time at a slightly higher per box price, but have the option to skip any theme they don’t want. Traveler members are automatically* billed every other month, and can cancel after any box.

‘Adventurer’ – Those looking for a little less commitment may choose the Adventurer membership. Adventurers purchase the next three boxes upfront and receive a welcome gift in their first box. Adventurer memberships are automatically* renewed semi-annually.

‘Pioneer’ – Our Pioneer membership is the best deal with the most exclusive perks. Members purchase all six boxes for the year upfront at a discounted price, and receive a welcome gift in their first box plus an exclusive Pioneers-only collectible gift every year on the anniversary of membership. Additionally, Pioneers receive a digital “founders” badge for Disney Treasures program. Pioneer memberships are automatically* renewed annually.

The Products: Each box features Funko figures and collectibles featuring characters from Classic Disney, Pixar Studios, and Disney Parks!

Ship To: US and Canada

Disney’s first box was all about Pirates!

Disney-Treasures-Box-April-2017-0005

They included a little intro card with information about how this partnership came to life and what to expect for future boxes.

Disney-Treasures-Box-April-2017-0006

As usual, Funko does an incredible job with the presentation of the information cards. The information is laid out on a treasure map – take a peek and you’ll be able to see future themes on the map!

Disney-Treasures-Box-April-2017-0007

The reverse side shows off all of your items along with notes on how an item was created, or the thought process behind it – this is one of my favorite parts of Funko boxes – I love the insight!

It came with a sticker to adhere to your treasure chest.

If you choose “Adventurer” or “Pioneer” as your plan, you’ll get a little welcome pin.

Patch + pin – Value $10-15?

Like all Funko subscriptions, you’ll always receive a patch and pin.

Disney-Treasures-Box-April-2017-0012

The patch features Captain Hook! Something fun and unique for Disney Treasures is that all of the patches from the first year of Disney Treasures boxes will fit together to frame a final secretive patch – fun!

The pin features Mikey Mouse as ‘Captain Mickey Mouse’ from the 4th season of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. And how cute is the Mickey Mouse ears pin cap! Nice touch.

Smee POP – Value $25 on POP Price Guide

The first-ever Funko POP in this subscription features Captain Hook’s first mate, Smee.

Look at that adorable belly on Smee. This POP line is the basic Funko build – no bobbleheads here.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dorbz Ride – Value $20-25?

The second vinyl figure is a Dorbz ride featuring the Pirate Captain and Pirate Ship from the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disney World!

Disney-Treasures-Box-April-2017-0027

This is my first-ever Dorbz Ride figure. Like the POP Ride figures, the figure disconnects from the vehicle if you choose to display them separately.

Disney-Treasures-Box-April-2017-0028

There is a ton of detail in both the ship and the figure – and while I’m not the biggest Dorbz fan, I’m thinking that I like them a lot more with little vehicles!

Jack Sparrow Mini Tin – Value $10?

The final item in the box features Jack Sparrow from the Pirates of the Caribbean movies – in mini form.

Disney-Treasures-Box-April-2017-0016

These mini tins are the best – I collected all of the Adventure Time tins – inside, typically, will be a blind bag mini figure. This time, everyone gets Jack Sparrow.

This specific tin line is new and will be featured in Disney Treasures boxes – get ready to build your collection!

Disney-Treasures-Box-April-2017-0018

Disney-Treasures-Box-April-2017-0019

Even though the figure is mini – he’s 3 inches tall – Jack has a lot of detail, and they did a good job at balancing the figure since it stands perfectly upright even with his big head.

Verdict: This is definitely the beginning of another super-fun Funko subscription line. Combining Funko and Disney is a can’t miss subscription in my book – and this first delivery was a blast to unbox. This has me excited for future themes – and especially Pixar items – because the items were nicely curated and high-quality.

What did you think of the first-ever Disney Treasures “Pirate’s Cove” box?

  1. I’m a little late to this party, so forgive me is this is already common knowledge…

    Just an FYI for anyone interested in subscribing, I think the prices that Eric listed above may have been introductory prices. I just subscribed and the options were $30, $29, and $28 depending on which plan you choose.

    However, Funko has a 10% discount offer right now, use “fun10” when checking out. And it looks like you can use it more than once. I forgot to add the April box when I purchased the subscription and was able to use it on my second order.

    Cannot wait to get my box! I am unbelievably excited, especially after reading Eric’s review!!!

  2. Still waiting on mine to ship. Why can I find no contact info whatsoever on you guys? I’m really getting nervous. I didn’t even get a receipt of payment or confirmation email. Please contact me

    • Hi Makenzie,

      We’re not involved with Disney Treasures, but I recommend contacting Funko: [email protected]

  3. Fun review of a great box! Love it!

  4. Also forgot to add that all authentic Disney pins come with the mouse ear pin backs 🙂

    • That makes so much sense – sounds very Disney-like!

  5. I am so thrilled with the box! My only complaint is I can’t get my Smee to stand freely, which kinda sucks. Still, everything is so spot on (and I LOVE the mini tin) I’m glad I signed up.

    • People have given me tips with this type of thing. I’ve been told to heat up the area you’d like to adjust – say Smee’s leg or foot – with a hair dryer. Once it warms up, you should be able to move it and change it before it cools – that should help you make it stand.

      • Oh! Fantastic idea! I’ll have to try it. I have it leaning against a book that was already there, but it’d be nice not to have to.

    • Same here! Hard to imagine they never tried to stand it up while designing it lol

      • Of course, now that I went to go adjust his foot with the hairdryer trick I have him standing easily. Maybe been out of the box for a few days did the trick? Who knows, but I’m happy he is now!

  6. I liked this box a lot. I don’t like Jack Sparrow so that’s going to be listed online. I am a little disappointed by the look of the sticker on June’s box as I wanted to hold onto hope of something Hunchback of Notre Dame (I would love an Esmerelda Pop 🙂 ideally with Djali.) I mean Festival of Friends sounds awfully like Festival of Fools.

  7. Looks super cute. Any codes?

    • I haven’t seen any coupons for funko subscriptions

      • if you are a member of the Disney movie rewards program they had a 5% off option you could “buy” with 300 points. it seems to still be available and valid on any level of subscription.

        • Thanks! Shucks, I don’t have 300 points. Oh well, I guess it’s only the equivalent to $1 off anyway.

  8. I managed to resist this subscription right up until I saw your review. It looks so good, I have to become a member. So glad that this Pirate box is still available.
