Earlier this week, Funko released a spoiler video for their inaugural Disney Treasures bi-monthly subscription service, themed Pirates Cove. I’m not going to post the contents here until we get our boxes in ourselves to review. Instead, I want to focus on all of the locations that appear on a map inside the crate, and have been confirmed to be the themes for the rest of the year. If you don’t want to be spoiled by the themes, and my thoughts on them, continue no further. For those that want to continue, please join me after these photos of Funko Pop! Vinyls that I have taken throughout Walt Disney World.
Still with me?
So, here is the map that is on the inside cover of the Disney Treasures box.
As you can see, there are six “lands”, or locations… each representing one of the six boxes in this year’s Disney Treasures subscription. In addition to Pirates Cove, we have Festival of Friends, Ever After Castle, Snowflake Mountain, Haunted Forest, and Tiny Town. In addition, each subscription will have something park exclusive in it. This leads us to wonder: which attractions will be represented in which locations? Some might be easier than others, but let’s break them down.
Festival of Friends
Well, technically we don’t need to guess much with this theme, as Funko has recently revealed a look at the logo for this month (being the June 2017 box), as well as a glimpse of what looks like the Pop! Vinyl.
Not sure is this is the Disney Parks exclusive item, but it could easily be, given that it looks like the park ride. Who knows… this could actually be big enough to be considered a Pop! Ridez, which would be pretty cool.
I would also love to see a Dorbz 2pk of Bongo and Lulubelle from Fun and Fancy Free, as I talked about earlier today.
Ever After Castle
I doubt we will actually get a Pop! version of one of the Disney Castles in this box, but perhaps a Mystery Minis scaled version, and that would be awesome. Disneyland’s Sleeping Beauty’s Castle is the smallest of the park castles, so that would be the easiest one to put in. I am assuming we will be getting Disney Princess items as well.
I believe we have actually seen the Parks item for this box, in the form of a Pop! Proto that surfaced a few months ago… Harold, or more commonly known as the Abominable Snowman from Disneyland’s Matterhorn. Obviously the Frozen franchise could be included as well. Can someone say Oaken? Big Summer Blowout!
Okay, if The Haunted Mansion isn’t part of this, that would be a shame. Since we have already gotten a few of the HM characters in Pop! form (the Hitchhiking Trio and the Hatbox Ghost), the next obvious choice would be the Bride, or Constance Hatchaway.
Of course, including someone like Albert the Monkey from Hong Kong Disneyland’s Mystic Manor would be a fun surprise.
Tiny…. small. “it’s a small world”… would make sense, no?
So what will this year of Disney Treasures hold? Only time will tell. Want to be in on the fun? You can subscribe to Disney Treasures here. Through April 22nd, they are letting people sign up for Pirates Cove and multi-box subscriptions. Starting soon after, Festival of Friends will open up for orders.
