    Now my children have moved out and left me with loads of DVDs and blu-rays, I wonder if there’s still an opportunity for this Disney Vault idea – https://www.moneymagpie.com/make-money/make-money-from-the-disney-vault-4

    I wonder if the moment has passed now Disney Plus has the entire back catalogue!

    I have nearly every Disney film on blu-ray but I only ever bought one copy of each. Didn’t think of buying extra, haha, and definitely couldn’t imagine selling them. I’m a HUGE Disney fan, but can’t be dealing with Disney Plus and all that modern stuff.

    I’m not ashamed! Beauty and The Beast, The Lion King etc. are so beautifully made with such well-crafted music that I think you’d have to be a bit of a grinch to deny it.

    Nothing wrong with embracing the inner-child! Rather that than a gory horror movie.

    Very good question, Paul.

    As the original writer of that article, I think it’s definitely tougher now. However, I do think anything that is specifically a collectors or limited edition (e.g. Diamond Edition, 3D etc.) still might be sought after.

    Plus with some big streaming sites removing quite a lot of content, I do think physical copies might come back into vogue eventually. I think Disney is probably one of the more stable streaming sites and less likely to remove content, but I also know there’s a big demand for some of their exclusives (e.g. The Mandolorian) to get a physical release – if that ever happens, it might open up new opportunities.

     

    Oh and Andre, I got to say, you can never be too old for Disney. In fact, I’ve got a Disney Paris trip booked for January to help fight the January blues!

    Disney will always be a huge favourite worldwide, I’d say give it a go and see! You may be able to do some good bundle deals for people 🙂

    Thanks Marc. Still might be able to get a few quid then!
