    Someone mentioned in a recent Snow White thread that many Disney titles are getting ready to go OOP. Is there an accurate, confirmed list/schedule for this somewhere. I'd like to try and figure out what titles I need/want to buy. I was all over Disney's site yesterday with no luck. You'd think they'd have that plastered all over their site, what a selling point!

    I thought the GOLD COLLECTION was never going OOP. If so, we need a list. Please post.

    I believe the following will be going on "Moratorium"
    The Little Mermaid
    Lady and the Tramp
    The Jungle Book
    101 Dalmations
    I'm pretty sure of the first 3, not so sure about Dalmations. I think all the future PLATINUM releases that are currently available will be gone.
    But with the Snow White free DVD offer, you can pick up any of those 4 titles for free. This must mean that Disney has TONS of these discs and didn't stop production years ago like everyone thought. They are all marked Limited Issue but even as late as last week, my local BB had all titles in stock and for sale.

    The "OOP" titles would be those from their initial wave of releases that have not subsequently been issued as "gold". This would include the designated "platinum" titles such as 101 Dalmations, Lady & the Tramp, Jungle Book, & The Little Mermaid, as well as Peter Pan, which has not been announced or released as a "gold" edition yet. I'm not sure whether or not it includes Lion King 2: Simba's Pride, but I assume it does until it is branded "gold" and re-released. Titles not OOP because they have been re-released in the "gold" series include Mulan, Hercules, & Pinocchio.
    There still seem to be plenty of copies of these titles floating around as of now, so they may not be scarce for quite some time.

    I do wish they'd rerelease some of the gold 1.66 titles (Mulan, Hercules) in Anamorphic with special features. It's unfortunate that Mulan missed out on two disc status by one year. I would also get Lion King 2 if it were enhanced.

    I was wondering what titles were going away soon ^^. Thanks, now I can probably changed my list of stuff to buy next week to something else(was going to buy Fantasia Anthology). But, speaking of that title, is it purpose to still be out, or should I pick it up now for 50 at Wal-Mart?

    $50 for the Fantasia Anthology is a pretty good deal unless you have an online coupon and can get it for less with that. I paid about $47 when I preordered, and considering the full slate of extras plus both movies and the third disc, it's well worth the $50.

    I bought mine new and sealed on eBay for $31 + shipping. I thought that was about right.
    My daughter (2.5 years) is petrified of either version of Fantasia. The music freaks her out. She'll appreciate it when she's older, I suppose...
    If you are REALLY into Fantasia, its worth $50. IMHO, The Toy Story Ultimate Toybox is what to spend $50 on unless you already have it.
    Also, there is some sort of mega disney box set out now. For $199, you get Toy Story UTB, Fantasia Anthology, Emporor's New Groove (2 disc set), Tarzan (2 disc set) and maybe something else. It might be a Costco/Sam's Club type deal, I'm not sure.
