Disc 1 - Walt Disney World Resort: Behind the Scenes - In this exciting program you will get an unprecedented look behind the scenes at many Walt Disney World attractions, including The Haunted Mansion, Mission Space, Rock n Roller Coaster and The Seas with Nemo and Friends!

Disc 2 - Disneyland Resort: Behind the Scenes - The Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California, is the first in the family of Disney Parks that now span the entire globe. Despite its relatively small footprint, Disneyland Resort boasts an incredible variety of attractions, entertainment, and experiences. Your journey starts on Main Street and takes you on classic attractions like The Matterhorn Bobsleds, It s a Small World, and Pirates of the Caribbean. Then take an exclusive look into the future of Disney Parks with a sneak peek at Disney s California Adventure.

Disc 3 - Ultimate Walt Disney World - Do you crave speed? Adrenalin? Ultimate fun? Then follow us on a journey as we explore the ultimate thrill rides at Walt Disney World Resort.

If you re looking for the best thrills Disney has to offer, then Ultimate Walt Disney World is it!

Disc 4 - Disney s Animal Kingdom - A behind the scenes tour of Disney s most ambitious theme park to date in Orlando, this program showcases the incredible challenge of how to combine theme park rides and live animals in a park environment. Go backstage and get under the skin of the Dinosaur attraction, including one of Disney s largest audioanimatronics figures. Then tour the Tree of Life for an inside look at Disney s most advanced three-dimensional special effects show, and experience the thrilling Expedition Everest and Kilimanjaro Safari!

Disc 5 - Disney Cruise Line - Ahoy mates! All aboard the Disney Cruise Line in Port Canaveral for more adventures and fun at sea. Disney is the only cruise line navigated by pixie dust and magic.

You ll get an exclusive VIP tour behind the scenes of the ship and Disney s own private island paradise, Castaway Cay, a tropical oasis reserved for cruise guests only!

Disc 6 - Undiscovered Disney Parks - Think you know Walt Disney World? Think again. Beyond the theme parks, beyond the mouse we ll show you how Disney Parks can make your vacation magical when you want an alternative to rides, restaurants, and souvenirs. This program takes you to the unknown sites and attractions, as our cameras get off the beaten path. At Disneyland in Anaheim you can Walk In Walt s Footsteps and discover secret spots that Walt Disney himself visited. At Walt Disney World in Orlando, learn how to surf, make and ride your own roller coaster, go on a private safari, and drive a real race car.

Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Watched Blu-Ray version on a 37 inch 1080p Sharp Aquos using a Slim PlayStation 3.
Purchased at $18.99.

-1 Blu-Ray disc containing Disneyland Resorts: Behind the Scenes (51 min), Undiscovered Disney Parks (44 min), and Ultimate Walt Disney World (44 min) of both locations, and Extras
-1 DVD with the same content as the Blu-Ray, and a Digital Copy. The Digital Copy included includes 3 .mp4 files (Disneyland Resorts: Behind the Scenes, Undiscovered Disney Parks, and Ultimate Walt Disney World) that you simply copy off the DVD yourself. There is no code to redeem through iTunes or Windows Media Player, but I did import them into the iTunes library.
-Blu-Ray case is inside a cardboard slipcase. This version may not be as extensive as the 6-Disc DVD set which I have never seen

Picture and sound quality was just fine for something like this.

I'm reviewing this mostly from a content point of view.

I have personally been to Disney World (FL) at least 8+ times. To some that may be a significant amount, others not so much. After watching this Blu-Ray, I can honestly say that I have missed out on at least 80% of what Disney World alone has to offer. The Disney World part is not as intricate as the Disney Land one; but if you've been to Disney World, you can easily compare everything between both parks. It takes you through the major attractions, whether it be the Main Street Parade, or the amazing thrill rides that each park offers. Interviews with Imagineers, creators, and directors of these attractions are intertwined throughout.

- Disneyland Resorts: Behind the Scenes covers Disney Land and California Adventure's, and all their individual sections with tons of background information.

Picked this set up today at one of the local stores. Thought I'd share some comments.

The set consists of six DVDs, each in an individual thin case - which are stored in a cardboard sleeve. Most of the videos are "widescreen", but a few are "full screen" 1.33:1 ratio and they all lack close-captioning. These videos document what there is to do at the parks and attractions, with a lot of interviews of park employees and with actual customers. It does start to seem like a hour long commercial for Disney, but I guess that is expected given that it's a detailed look at a theme park and it's attractions.

Listing of the discs;

1) Walt Disney World Resort: Behind the Scenes. 52 minutes with two extra features; What's New in the Haunted Mansion & Stitch's Great Escape. Not sure just how long each of the extra features are - but they seem to be around 8~12 minutes. This DVD reminded me of the History Channel's documentary Modern Marvels - Walt Disney World (History Channel).

2) Disneyland Resort: Behind the Scenes. 55 minutes with two extra features; Walt Disney's Apartment on Main Street & King Arthur's Carousel.

3) Ultimate Walt Disney World. 57 minutes with two extra features; Goofy's Barnstormer & Catastrophe Canyon.

4) Disney's Animal Kingdom. 42 minutes, no extra features.

5) Disney Cruise Line. 52 minutes with two extra features; Sneak Peek at the Disney Dream & Virtual Ride on the Disney Dream AquaDuck.

6) Undiscovered Disney Parks. 50 minutes with two extra features; What's New at Walt Disney World's Resort Hotels & Tips for Walt Disney World Travelers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blu-Ray Perfection June 19, 2010
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I have purchased both the 6 DVD version and the Blu-ray versions. If you choose the Blu-ray version you'll get Disneyland Resort: Behind the Scenes + Ultimate Walt Disney World + Undiscovered Disney Parks. The DVD version has in addition Disney Cruise Line + Disney Animal Kingdom + WDW Resort: Behind the Scenes.
The Blu-ray quality is absolutely fabulous, almost, dare I say, like being there !
True fans will no doubt just have to have both versions, but if I had to choose I would have to choose quality over quantity and go for the Blu-ray.
For customers in the UK it appears that there are no regional coding restrictions on either the DVDs or the Blu-ray.

5.0 out of 5 stars bluray vs dvd version June 5, 2010
I plan on picking these up in the near future...Please keep in mind that the 6 pack dvd version contains more then the blu ray. Why? Don't would think all of it would be on blu ray. Just keep in mind that if you buy the blu ray that you get the same movies on dvd + 3 more and all the extras. Since blu ray players will up convert, it might be a better deal to go with the dvd version.

1.0 out of 5 stars Why pay when you can get it for free September 21, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
What a disappointment. This six video set seems nothing more than an extended version of the travel planning video you can order from the Walt Disney Company for free.
While there are a few scenes you will not see elsewhere, such as an inside look at the private Club 33 at Disneyland, this does not justify the cost.
The title is also very misleading "The Secrets, Stories and Magic Behind the Scenes". There is very little behind the scenes material.
Finally, the production is sloppy. Each video is only about 45 minutes long, even with the "Extras" which themselves are only a few minutes each. In that 45 minutes they often use the same scene over and over, such as the same surfer surfing the same wave at Typhoon Lagoon. What, did they run out of original footage to fill out the 45 minutes?
The videos are pretty to look at and the Disney Parks look beautiful, but that is more a credit to Disney than to the producers of this project which is not worthy of the Disney name.

There may be a few added features, but basically they are the same as the Travel Channel shows.
