Please tell me I’m not the only one who is an adult yet is still going out and buying all of the Disney movies on Blu-ray/DVD as they are released from the vault!
So I went out and bought the Lion King the other day (the day it was re-released) and our collection now includes the following:
- Beauty and the Beast
- The Lion King
- Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
A part of me feels kind of silly because we don’t even plan to TTC for another 3 years or so. But I love the classic Disney movies so I want to be able to have them for my future children.
Please tell me I’m not alone! 🙂

I’m sure you are not the only one. But, I don’t think you really have anything to worry about. Disney is not going to decide one day that they don’t want to make any more money. They will keep releasing those movies as infinitum.
The one concern I have is that technology will likely change and the format you have now won’t work with any new video equipment you have in the future. Remember VHS?

No, you’re not the only one. I’ve always been obsessed with The Little Mermaid so I asked for the original and the other two that came out.

Oh don’t feel bad. I have pretty much every one they have released too. Even with blue-ray, they play dvds so I wouldn’t worry too much about it not working anymore!

I have most of the good disney movies on VHS still 🙂 However I think I am going to start transitioning to DVD (we don’t have a blu-ray player)

We had some friends over for a gaming night and one remarked on our collection of Disney movies “and you don’t have kids.” Nope, and we don’t plan to. We just really enjoy the Disney cartoons (most of them), I even belong to the Disney Movie Club.
Not too worried about the vault issues, though. As PP said, it’s unlikely they’ll keep everything bottled up forever, it’s just a tactic to create scarcity and increase demand on their schedule.

I have them on VHS still and would totally buy the dvds. And I’m not even planning on kids. LOL

@julies1949: I’m pretty sure Blu-rays aren’t going to be obsolete in a few years. 🙂 You could still get a VHS player today if you really wanted too.
@thirdtimebride: Oh I totally enjoy watching them myself too! And I know they won’t go back into the “vault” for forever (that would be a silly business move, IMO). But I can’t control when Disney will re-release them again so if I don’t start collecting them now, they might not be available at the point I want them for my future kids.

Oh you are def not the only one, I still have all of my VHS collection, and to boot I have them all in French (since I was born and raised in Mtl hihi). I think now it’s time for me to collect them in English and DVDs lol

We are totally collecting them as they come out and I can’t wait for our future (way WAAAY future) kids to get to enjoy them as much as we did!
