Sneak Peek at Disney Home Entertainment Line Up + AWESOME Disney DVD Bundle Giveaway!
Disclosure: This event and trip to LA was an all expense paid journey sponsored by Disney. All thoughts, experiences and Disney character crushes are 100% my own!
As part of my Disney experience in LA a couple of months ago, I had the opportunity to visit the Disney Animation lot. It is such a neat place, and when you are there, you can just feel the joy and greatness that surrounds you. I could not help but think how incredibly lucky are those who get to work there every day… can you imagine? Just take a look at this building … it’s so … so … Disney! And it turns out .. a whole lot of the magic of Disney happens right here in the buildings that are placed around this lot.
As part of our Disney experience, we were able to meet David Jessen, he is the VP of Content Enhancement Production. In other words, he helps to create those awesome bonus features that you find on your favorite Disney DVDs. I honestly didn’t realize the greatness of the bonus material until I had kids… and they get so excited each time we have a new Disney DVD so that they can watch this bonus material!
Our group was given a sneak peek at what’s new for fall 2013, and let me tell you … there are some exciting new releases coming up:
Super Buddies!! Disney’s beloved and adorable ‘Buddies’ are back in a hilarious all-new movie for the whole family — ‘SUPER BUDDIES’ debuts August 27, 2013, on Bluray Combo Pack and DVD. An action-packed canine adventure, ‘Super Buddies’ stars the world’s most adorable talking puppies – Rosebud, B-Dawg, Budderball, Buddha and Mudbud, as caped crusaders em’barking’ on their biggest adventure ever.
About the Movie: An ordinary day at Fernfield Farms turns extraordinary when Budderball, Mudbud, B-Dawg, Buddha and Rosebud discover mysterious rings that grant them each a unique super power. Before you can say, “Buddies, assemble,” the pups unleash their amazing abilities and race to the rescue when a shape-shifting bully from outer space threatens the planet. But can they succeed in kicking major tail without revealing their new secret identities?
A must-own movie event packed with laughter, action and incredible new characters, ‘SUPER BUDDIES’ proves when you use your wits and work together, you don’t need super powers to be a super hero!

The Little Mermaid Diamond Edition DVD! Another soon to be released DVD is the Diamond Edition of The Little Mermaid. Part of the excitement of this release is that Carly Ray Jepsen sings “Part of Your World” and we were able to get a special screening of her video, and it’s beautifully done.
Ariel (voiced by Jodi Benson), is a free-spirited mermaid, who is off on the adventure of a lifetime with her best friend, the adorable Flounder (voiced by Jason Marin), and the reggae-singing Caribbean crab Sebastian (voiced by Samuel E. Wright) at her side. But it will take all of her courage and determination to make her dreams come true—and save her father’s beloved kingdom from the sneaky sea witch Ursula (voiced by Pat Carroll).
Where to purchase? The Little Mermaid Diamond Edition DVD will be released on October 1st, 2013, but you can pre-order now through Amazon here for $26.99!
Here’s a little snippit of The Little Mermaid for you, this movie always makes me smile, and I LOVE the soundtrack!
