[/floatright]Disc 1 - Walt Disney World Resort: Behind the Scenes - In this exciting program you will get an unprecedented look behind the scenes at many Walt Disney World attractions, including The Haunted Mansion, Mission Space, Rock 'n' Roller Coaster and The Seas with Nemo and Friends! This is the story behind the story of how a theme park made Orlando, Florida the nation's number one vacation destination.

Disc 2 - Disneyland Resort: Behind the Scenes - The Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California, is the first in the family of Disney Parks that now span the entire globe. Despite its relatively small footprint, Disneyland Resort boasts an incredible variety of attractions, entertainment, and experiences. Your journey starts on Main Street and takes you on classic attractions like The Matterhorn Bobsleds, It's a Small World, and Pirates of the Caribbean. Then take an exclusive look into the future of Disney Parks with a sneak peek at Disney's California Adventure. Blu-ray

Disc 3 - Ultimate Walt Disney World - Do you crave speed? Adrenalin? Ultimate fun? Then follow us on a journey as we explore the ultimate thrill rides at Walt Disney World Resort. Experience a flight into space, a thirteen story elevator plunge, a high speed coaster that travels in the dark and another one that actually travels backwards! If you’re looking for the best thrills Disney has to offer, then Ultimate Walt Disney World is it! Blu-ray

Disc 4 - Disney's Animal Kingdom - A behind the scenes tour of Disney's most ambitious theme park to date in Orlando, this program showcases the incredible challenge of how to combine theme park rides and live animals in a park environment. Go backstage and get under the skin of the Dinosaur attraction, including one of Disney's largest audioanimatronics figures. Then tour the Tree of Life for an inside look at Disney's most advanced three-dimensional special effects show, and experience the thrilling Expedition Everest and Kilimanjaro Safari!

Disc 5 - Disney Cruise Line - Ahoy mates! All aboard the Disney Cruise Line in Port Canaveral for more adventures and fun at sea. Disney is the only cruise line navigated by "pixie dust" and "magic." See a black and white restaurant turn into full color. You'll get an exclusive VIP tour behind the scenes of the ship and Disney's own private island paradise, Castaway Cay, a tropical oasis reserved for cruise guests only!

Disc 6 - Undiscovered Disney Parks - Think you know Walt Disney World? Think again. Beyond the theme parks, beyond the mouse – we'll show you how Disney Parks can make your vacation magical when you want an alternative to rides, restaurants, and souvenirs. This program takes you to the unknown sites and attractions, as our cameras get off the beaten path. At Disneyland in Anaheim you can "Walk In Walt’s Footsteps" and discover secret spots that Walt Disney himself visited. At Walt Disney World in Orlando, learn how to surf, make and ride your own roller coaster, go on a private safari, and drive a real race car. Blu-ray

What are these? Are they the Travel Channel specials or something? It's not being released directly by Disney, and the descriptions sound like those programs...so I'm curious. I do wonder if it will really be true High Definition on Blu-Ray...

My guess is that these are the Lightship Entertainment programs that have appeared on the Travel Channel and Discovery HD. Lightship is based in Orlando and has done lots of work for Disney (including last year's Christmas Parade broadcast). I've already sent them an inquiry as to whether the Blu-ray discs include actual high definition material.

Update: Lightship has confirmed that these are the same shows that aired on the Travel Channel. Also, the Blu-ray disc (featuring 3 of the 6 shows listed above) is indeed composed of high definition material. ;)

Oh, so the Blu-ray is only half the material? I suppose if the shows left off are standard definition, I can understand, but it's too bad it's not all of it, like the DVD. Thanks for asking them about the definition though, that helps.

Well, I don't mind DVD quality and we've only one bluray player between us. It's region free and I can play NTSC on my stuff here so I've pre-ordered it (via Magicmusic, of course). ;)
With the exchange rate now it's pretty close to the standard price for a single Disney DVD over here in the UK :amazon:
Delivery date is rather long though (mid July).
I'm sure it will be well worth the wait.

I've updated the original article to show which discs are part of the Blu-ray release. Thanks, again, to Lightship.

And thank you, eyore, for your support! ;)
