    Definitely a YMMV depending on the rep you get, but if they don't offer you can just ask "Is it possible"

    Even stranger a couple Canadians have reported being offered a similar option and FS in Canada is a far more rare part of their
    monthly offers and substantially more expensive. They don't even have a Free Shipping promo offer to leverage. There is actually a bigger reason for them to enroll if they are on an older plan since there is a newer promo code that attaches B1G50% and G60% offers in place of their normal G40% and G50% codes. The Canadian monthly offers have almost always been 10% less than the US offers. If they can upgrade to the higher % discounts and then attach the FS, their deal becomes substantially better

    A little late to this party, but let me also say how thrilled I am to see these two Walt-era classics get their due on Blu-ray! This is fantastic news indeed and gives me hope that we'll still see these types of releases even after Disney+ debuts. Thank you Disney for finally making these two classic films available to purchase!

    I think I'm more excited about, In Search Of The Castaways. I was just turned 12 when I saw it (& 12 was a lot younger in 1962 than it is now), & it was quite magical; the earthquake leading then sliding down those ice caves, the big eagle carrying off one of the children, & most of all, the huge wave & the big tree that saves them (& Maurice Chevalier singing Enjoy It). I haven't seen it for decades & I don't know how it will stand up now that I'm old & cynical. If I see it at a reasonable price on ebay I'll buy it.

    Wow great news for me on both titles and call me shocked as I never thought we would see another pre 1985 title from the DMC after a year plus dry spell.

    I'll admit that I'm not a huge Disney fan, and I already own most of their films that interest me, but I joined the club yesterday JUST to get my hands on 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. Along with Journey to the Center of the Earth, this film made a huge impression on me as a kid and became part of my DNA. Can't WAIT to see it in HD!

    So you had Ray Harryhausen in your home and you get to inspect classic theaters. I’ll just sit here and eat my heart out. ;)

    Can't tell from the smiley if you already know, but Exclusives usually don't have pre-orders -- they just go live on release day

    Thanks for the discussion about calling CS to add the free shipping for life perk to an existing membership. I just tried that and CS was happy to add it for me. I don't know if trying that would have occured to me without this thread.

    That just started in the last couple weeks. I think they've gotten so many longer term members calling to cancel and re-enroll specifically for that perk (or calling and complaining about new members getting a better deal) I guess they figured it was better just to keep their current members. I was less surprised at the US club doing that, but pretty much shocked when I heard a couple of the canadians get the same offer - they've been dying for a Free Shipping option.

    The other weird thing is the sales tax -- not that they're having to do it like almost everyone, but which states still are exempt. New York and Texas went early with the Amazon Tax but are still exempt with DMC, but Florida was the shocker with all of Disney's businesses based there.

    David, I concur with you that this announcement deserves its own thread. Fantastic news! So great to get two more Walt era films on Blu.

    Yes, I know they don't take pre-orders, but I just wanted to show my enthusiasm to pick them up as soon as possible. Thanks @David Norman!

    I thought you already knew that, but just in case non DMC folks are reading just to make sure they know that joining today won't allow them order order fro release day delivery.

    There has always been a bit of slough room starting Thu-Mond prerelease where sometimes they cna manually place the order for you -- lately it's been Monday since the phones/chat don't work weekends

    Not counting items that likely will never see the light of day - not in any special order, but highly requested titles:

    These are the one's I hear most often asked for
    ** 101 and 102 Dalmatians -- I think a very strong chance these come around Cruella
    Flubber (Robin Williams) -- shocked this wasn't released with the Fred McMurray pair. It even had an announcement and picture in Bluray case inside one of the Disney's
    ** Make Mine Music/Melody Time - unedited
    Black Cauldron --( the Magnificent Ambersons Cut)
    ** Black Hole
    ** Darby O'Gill
    Happiest Millionaire
    Angels in the Outfield -- esp right after Mighty Ducks

    Jodie Foster:
    Candleshoe
    Napoleon and Samantha

    Hayley Mills:
    Moon Spinners
    Summer Magic
    That Darn Cat
    Parent Trap II/IIi/IV -- Tv Movies

    Never Cry Wolf
    Cat From Outer Space
    Kidnapped
    Shaggy Dog
    Shaggy DA
    Those Calloways
    The One and Only, Genuine, Original Family Band -- Mike Frezon by himself gets this one high on the list
    Horse in the Grey Flannel Suit
    The 3rd Dexter Riley title -- Now you See Now You Don't
    The Barefoot Executive
    Great Locomotive Chase
    The Incredible Journey
    Worlds Greatest Athlete
    Castaway Cowboy
    No Deposit No Return
    Hot lead and Cold Feet
    Apple Dumpling Returns
    North Avenue Irregulars
    Watcher in the Woods
    Something Wicked This Way Comes
