Disney Vault System Gets a Major Upgrade

I have a love/hate relationship with the Disney Vault system. When the company flew me out to Los Angeles earlier this year for an event for Oz the Great and Powerful, I put in my plea to have them get rid of it entirely. They won’t … but they are beginning to slowly but surely put out combo packs of DVD plus Blu-Ray and digital copy, so technology won’t have left you far behind before they next see fit to let beloved classics out of the vault.

Even better is something I noticed with the newly released Lilo & Stitch and Emperor’s New Groove combo packs.

Rather than making you fill up your shelves with multiple DVD boxes, Disney is finally putting series all in one box.

So Lilo & Stitch isn’t just the 2002 story of a little Hawiian girl and her alien buddy but also the second movie put out about the best friends, Lilo & Stitch 2: Stitch Has a Glitch.

The same goes for Emperor’s New Groove, which has been packaged with Kronk’s New Groove.

Good for shelf space. Good for your wallet. And good for sharing memories of movies gone by with the kids of today.

Because as frustrating as the whole “wait for a new upgraded version” of the Disney classics can be, when I sat down to watch the newest combo packs, I couldn’t help reflecting on the way Disney magic works on me as a parent rather than a child. These films were fun once, but now watching my child watch them they’re fun in yet another way.

I marvel at what makes her laugh, wonder at what makes her scared, smile at what makes her get up and dance.

What do you think of the Disney Vault system? Have you checked out their latest re-releases?

Have you “liked” Inside Out Motherhood on Facebook yet?
