For those of you with social media, I am sure you have seen ads for Disney subscription boxes in the past (I know I have.) We loved the idea of a Disney subscription box so we decided to try a few out and frankly we were always less than impressed. The photos of the boxes looked great but what you actually received was never very impressive. The Disbox (www.thedisbox.com) appeared to be a bit different so we decided to give them a shot for today’s review.
I'd like to start this review by stating that this is not a payed or sponsored review. We purchased this box with our own money so this should be a very accurate representation of what you would receive. The first thing that caught my eye about the Disbox was there founders story. They too had tried other Disney subscription boxes in the past and were always less than impressed with what they received. This immediately got my attention and after doing a bit more research i decided to pull the trigger on the Neverland Box.
The Box-The first thing you notice about the Disbox is the box itself. I swear I could write an entire article on just the box itself. Long story short it is incredible. It was designed to mimic a briefcase Walt may have carried with him as traveled between California and Florida and I think it does a very good job at portraying that. The attention to detail is second to none and the amount of little Easter eggs you can find is amazing. It is truly box for the Disney enthusiast. While it is very clearly a Disney themed box, there are many details that may go unnoticed by the uninitiated. But if your the kind of person whose friends and family go to for Disney tips and tricks, then this box is filled with unending things to look at. My favorite part is the bottom of the box that is adorned with the map of the Magic Kingdom from the first year it was opened. This is without a doubt my favorite box design of all the subscription boxes.
Contents- This is probably the part people are most interested in and I can honestly say that The Disbox does not disappoint in this department either. In fact it is quite the opposite. I purchased there Neverland Box which is there current Mid-tier box if you will and it was jam packed with all kind of Disney Goodies. There was a Disney themed T-shirt, Collector Pin, Set of Minnie Ears for My daughter, A Disney Scented Candle and a bath bomb with a little surprise inside (Spoiler Alert Ahead.) Now I just thought the bath bomb was just like any other bath bomb but to my suprise there was another Disney collector pin hidden in the middle of the bath bomb!! It's the little touches like these that really go a long way with me and I think it is the things like these that set this box apart from the rest. I'm not a huge pin collector myself but things like that just add value that you don't seem to find elsewhere.
Dislikes-Some may say I am nitpicking but hey, nothing is perfect. My first gripe has to due with the selection of different boxes or the lack there of. At the time of writing there are only 3 choices for boxes (The Bare Necessities, Neverland and Keys to the Kingdom Boxes) and while this may make the selection process a little easier, it does leave a little to be desired in the terms of variety. My second gripe which I guess isn't really a gripe and more of a concern but I just don't understand how this is going to be a sustainable business. If you were to buy everything in those boxes on there own the value would be well over $80 and that is just for there cheapest box!! If i were reading this I would be running out right now to buy one of these boxes because you may not have the chance much longer!
