About six months ago, we joined the Disney Movie Club. Even I am not sure what possessed me to do it, since I am usually leery of movie/music/book clubs. Maybe they had some great promo, I don’t know.
Whatever caught my attention, I thought it through. Our family buys lots of Disney movies. I like the classics most, and every once in a while, I like the new ones too. When we signed up, we got 7 movies, for a total of 13 dollars ( shipping, discounts etc). I ordered all classics, like Mary Poppins, Fox and the Hound, Aristocats, Sword in the Stone, and others. I ordered a couple of live action ones too, from the Narnia series, since that is a set I’d like to collect as a family. After the initial order, you have to agree to buy four more movies in the next two years. I did not anticipate a problem, since we seem to buy more than that anyway.
Six months down the road, we have ordered our four mandatory movies, and then some. We got to pre-order Beauty and the Beast, and now we get to buy movies at an even steeper discount.
I think my favourite thing is being able to buy classics that you don’t always find stocked at the store, like the original Winnie the Pooh series.
This year, as most years, each kid gets a movie they’ve been wanting for Christmas. I got great deals on three movies for the kids : Beauty and the Beast; Winnie the Pooh: the Search for Christopher Robin; and a Bug’s Life.
For our family, it was definitely worth it. Look into it, you might like it too! And hey, if you want to sign up as my friend, I’ll get a free movie too!
