    Speaking of Shia Lebeouf, I'm currently watching Even Stevens!

    Such a goofy, fun show.

    I’m watching the first episode of Imagineering Story. As an enthusiast for the early history of the parks, there isn’t much in the first episode that I hadn’t seen before, but the presentation was pleasant to watch and a lot of the archival footage has been beautifully remastered for HD. I’ll stick around for the entirety of the miniseries based on what I’ve seen so far.

    What has present-day Disney got against Roddy McDowall? First, they play musical chairs with his Bedknobs and Broomsticks scenes, now this. Seriously, screw them. I will not pay a premium to watch bowdlerized movies, especially not on a service with a 3-year commitment upfront. That's what network TV was for. If this is what we can expect, then why don't they just shoehorn some commercials in every 20 minutes while they're at it? Even those you can already get on YouTube.

    I agree, I've seen plenty of Disneyland and Disney World "making of" docs but still found this interesting. I bet episdoe2 will be all about the beginnings of Disney World. I did enjoy some of the new interviews with the original imagineers.

    I am a little surprise that all the old cartoons, the ones on those old Treasures DVDs, were not included in Disney+. Why hold those back, unless they just want to have catalog content to add at later dates.

    I think some stuff isn't ready for 1080p which is why they were held back.

    There is no requirement for a three year commitment. You can go month to month if you wish. The 3 year commitment was only for the D23 membership special deal at less than $4 per month -- a deal which is no longer available.

    I just noticed they have the Thomas Mitchell version of Swiss Family Robinson on the service (I had forgotten they own that version). I don’t have time to spot check it right now, but can anyone comment on the quality of the transfer?

    Well folks. My first attempt at using my Disney+ subscription on 12 November went absolutely nowhere (on my iPhone app). System would not even recognize my user ID, much less my pw. Phone call to CS was useless, hung up after almost an hour on hold.

    Ahhh felgercarb!!!

    Oops, wrong SciFi franchise.

    Ahhh maclunkey!!


    One day later, try again with iPhone app.
    Working like a champ now, started my viewings of The Mandalorian.

    Can’t wait to get home to see D+ on the 75 and That Darn Cat (1965) in full HD (after waiting for a Blu-ray release that probably will never materialize now).

    It's mediocre at best and doesn't appear to be HD.

    What this app really needs is a "recently watched" or "continue watching" section.

    Hopefully that’s something they’ll add.

    I watched The Mandolorian after work yesterday, and did not let the credits play all the way through. When I went to watch it again with my wife, I could not find any sort of "Start from the beginning".........I had to scroll all the way back. Kind of annoying.

    I think if you exit back to the title screen, a "Restart from the Beginning" button will appear.

    Pretty sure I tried that...exited all the way out back to the D+ home screen, then drilled back down to the Mandolorian, but I will give it another shot.
