I got mine at Toys R Us. They were having a fantasic deal where if you bought TLK DVD you were able to buy any other DVD/VHS of your choice for only $5. So I was able to pick up the Sleeping Beauty DVD and TLK DVD for only about $20 - not too shabby!
I'm with you, Sharon. I used to always pre-order my videos at The Disney Store. Now I have tons of lithographs and crap that I'm never going to use. So for the last few years, I've tried to just buy them at the cheapest place I can find them.
I got my Lion King DVD at Best Buy and it came with a mousepad/calendar...which I chucked in the trash can....like I need another mousepad.
I did the Toys R Us deal and got Lion King and Sleeping Beauty for $26 total.
I never buy DVDs at the disney store and never understood the point of pre ordering DVDS before they come out. They will almost always be at the cheapest the first wek they are out and the only benefit of pre ordering seems to be the lithographs that I have zero need for.
Looks like Nemo is $15 at Walmart but I dont think I am buying that one
I collect memorabilia thats why I usually, but not always, look for the give aways when I get the DVD's
Does anyone here collect Disney memorabilia besides music? I've got a fairly diverse collection of Disney CD's, including The Lion King in five languages! A friend is being sent to China for six months to open a new office for his company and will be scouting for TLK in Mandoran (sp) and Korean for me!
I got the Lion King DVD from a local store that had it on sale for $12.99 plus you could pick any DVD for free. I chose the 20,000 DVD. The Lion King also came with a special CD sampler of music from the upcoming Lino King 1 1/2. Plus, you also got a special collector's limited edition numbered LK pin, a set of 5 lithographs bigger than the ones on the box set, and a free calling card for 30 minutes. I also mailed in my $5 refund check offer. The store also had a promotion that for each $5.00 you spent, $1 was refunded to your credit card so I saved an additional $2 and some cents. They had so many offers that they ended up paying ME to buy it. Oh, I also forgot to mention the free Lion King light keychain and plush toy.
Depending on the CD, I've got stuff in English, Spanish, French, Japanese, German, Dutch, Finnish, Swedish, Mandarin, Taiwanese, Hebrew, Greek, Italian, Portugese, and a small handful of languages that I don't remember what they are .
Which is SO sad .
Been collecting CD's since 1991 or so. Have over 500 of them. Have actually sat and listened to probably about 100 of them. Regularly listen to mebbe 5 .
