Mickey Monthly Theme Park Edition February 2018 Review

There was a lot of paper filler in this box (and a few pieces of Mickey confetti) so I had to dig a bit to get to the items, but they were packaged safely. There was no insert, card or list of items so I dug carefully to make sure I found everything and I came up with three items.

Aristocats Pin – Retail Value $9.99

This pin was listed on the Disney Parks website as only able to purchase in their stores, but I was able to locate the pin for purchase here. The pin is a pretty decent size (about 1.5 inches tall) and is very cute. It has some weight to it and I love the little detail of having a Mickey Mouse shaped rubber backing.

This was the best picture that I could get to show the little bit of glitter and sparkle in the pin. I think the pink pieces are tiny rhinestones or else little globs of glitter, but it’s really hard to tell, even in person. Overall, a cute and girly Disney pin that I was happy to receive!

Mickey Shaped Rice Krispie Treat with mini M&M’s

Mickey Shaped Rice Krispie Treat with mini M&M’s – Estimated Value $6.00

Unfortunately, there was no card in the box or tag attached to this. That means no nutritional information at all and no expiration date which made me a little hesitant to feed it to my family, but once they saw those mini M&M’s there was no turning back! It tasted fresh for a several day old (I’m assuming at least that for shipping time!) Rice Krispie Treat. It was pretty yummy and of course, cute Mickey-shaped treats are an iconic part of the Disney Park experience, so this was a fitting treat.

Splash of Fun Ariel Figurine

Splash of Fun Ariel Figurine – Retail Value $24.00 (found here for $16.95)

When I saw the box I thought, okay, this is the item to really give the box some value! A cute Ariel figurine is perfect for my daughter who loves The Little Mermaid and has a mermaid theme in her room, but as soon as I took it out of the box, I was pretty disappointed with the quality.

If you look at the pictures closely she has a few imperfections on her face, which I’m okay with, except for the giant bubble on her nose. It just shows a pretty low level of craftsmanship and then once I looked it up online, I realized I could buy it through several retailers. This meant that not only did it have imperfections, but also that it was not the special figurine I thought I could only find at a Disney Park. This really made me feel like they just threw in a leftover figurine instead of carefully curating the box.

Verdict: I have to admit, overall, I was pretty disappointed with this month’s Mickey Monthly Theme Park Edition box. The draw of this box is that it is supposed to bring you items that you can only find at the actual theme park and the value in that is supposed to offset the fact that you are only receiving about a 55% return on the cost of the box most of the time. Since I found the figurine on sale on several different websites and was even able to locate the pin (although I don’t fault them for that as much since it is a site where someone goes to a Disney store for you), this really takes away from the value and exclusivity of this box. It also made me feel pretty deceived and even doubt the authenticity of my Mickey Krispie Treat with no labels.

I estimate the total value of the box to be $39.99 and the cost of the box was $49.99 plus $9.45 shipping and handling. That’s $10 under value (before s+h) and considering I was able to find two out of the three items online, I don’t think that only receiving an 80% return on the cost was a good value this month.

To Wrap Up:

  1. I subscribed to this box when it first started…and I did the basic $19.99 + $10 shipping. I was pleases with most of the boxes and the value seemed better…I just couldn’t afford it snymore

  2. Nutritional value on a Rice Krispy treat covered in M & M’s? None.

  3. I guess I won’t subscribe to them ever!

  4. I think you are being far too kind, Brandi. There are so many more great Disney boxes to try. Based on this one review… fool me once… Do not give them any more of your hard-earned money!!! The pin was flimsy – you can get better ones on etsy. The statuette was an abomination. And no self-respecting company would EVER send a treat like that, especially without nutrition information. That price is unbelievable for that dime store doody they sent you. I know you have to maintain a level of kindness with these reviews and I commend you for it. This sub is a disgrace. I doubt even a hoarder would hold on to those things.

  5. Anything from the Mouse House is a rip-off. You’re just paying for the name. If I paid $50 for this I would be livid. A pin, a rice krispy treat and a ratchet looking figure. This box is a joke.

  6. I don’t care for Mickey monthly. This review however wasn’t being great either. No nutrition info on the Disney rice crispy treat being an issue I found pretty annoying.

    • I disagree. I think it’s a perfectly valid complaint for a food item from an unknown source. No expiration date and no listing of what’s on it is not standard for any food item that you’re not picking out yourself.

      As someone who goes to Disney on a regular basis, that isn’t even how they wrap them at the park. I agree that this whole box is shady.

    • Nutrition info is also helpful for those who have allergies, as they also include the ingredients. So it is kind of a big deal.

      • I also go to Disney often and the freshly made Rice Krispie treats are indeed wrapped this way. They also sell prepacked ones that look different (and those would have nutrition info on them, so I think would be a better choice!)

        I have subbed to Mickey Monthly in the past and always was happy. This box seems disappointing and random 🙁

        • That’s reassuring to know that you have seen the Krispie treats packaged this way at the parks! Also good to know that you have been happy with your past boxes! Maybe it was just first box bad luck for me and next month’s will be better! 🙂
