I just called the 1-800-72-DISNEY phone number and they verified that it was, indeed, released today. I'm just curious as to why there are no B&M stores in the NJ area that are aware of/stocking it on the release day.
My local Disney Store didn't have any Love Bug, 20,000 Leagues, or Rescuers discs in stock. Plenty of copies of the DTV Atlantis 2, though. Ah well. I ended up grabbing 20,000 Leagues at Best Buy and will have to wait for the rest. Best Buy doesn't even have The Love Bug listed as available on-line.
After visiting or calling a number of B&M's today, including The Disney Store, The Love Bug DVD is, apparently, no where to be found. I had no problem finding 20,000 Leagues...but The Love Bug is missinig in action. If your planning to try to pick this up at a B&M after work today, don't bother. It looks like some online venders got it in but they were the only ones. Hopefully, this is just a delay in shipping and it will be readily available later in the week.
FYI, after going to several B&M stores today, I gave up on finding The Love Bug. I ended up ordering it from dvdempire.com this afternoon and they processed the order in less than an hour, so thankfully it's on its way to my door.
I really can't understand what Disney was thinking. Presumably they've put together a wonderful two-disc set for this movie and yet no major retailer has any info on it at all.
