Subscription boxes are kind of a fun gamble: some “meh” items, some super cool exclusives, and everything in between. This month, you can order the two new Disney subscription boxes they announced at D23, the Disney Backstage Collection and the Disney Princess Enchanted Collection.
Disney subscription boxes are usually hyper-targeted to a specific audience, and these are no different. They’re made with very different flavors of fan in mind.
The Disney Backstage Collection explores the history of The Walt Disney Company. It’s going to be artwork pulled from the Vault, stories from early Imagineers, and heritage-inspired swag. According to shopDisney, this box will include items from even before Mickey Mouse was introduced in 1928!
This is more of an adult box, but teens who are into Disney history or art would also get a kick out of it. The welcome box seems a little basic: a shirt, a pin, and a story card. At least the art is exclusive, and Disney pins are of course a big collector’s item.
Going forward, you can subscribe for 3, 6, or 12 months ($39.99, $37.99, and $34.99 each, respectively). Every box is delivered in a compact collectible canister. As someone in a constant battle against clutter, I can’t help but notice this looks like one Disney subscription box that won’t end up cluttering the house.
The other new box is definitely kid-oriented. Every one includes a princess costume, storybook, stickers, and a couple mystery toys or accessories from the princess of your choice. On the subscription page, you can choose from three Disney Princesses each month, so you won’t get stuck with your least favorite.
The boxes are pricier than the Backstage Collection, but you get a lot for that. These are the two packages.
There are about sixteen billion ways to schedule this Disney subscription box. You can order every month to get every Disney princess, once a quarter when the new group of princesses come out, or month to month if you’re not sure how your kiddo will like the box. There’s also an option that lets you pick which months the box will show up in case you want to set up birthdays and holidays in advance.
Both boxes have to be paid in advance for the whole term (unless you do monthly billing). While you’re going to wind up saving money, it is a big initial outlay.
