  • They will come back. I have been buying them since my younger two were little and they are 18 and 15 now and I still see the movies...Only difference is theirs on on VHS and I need them on DVD's, lol.

  • You can ALWAYS find them on Amazon, even when they aren't being sold on store shelves. I usually get them there for next to nothing...

  • "A Limited Time" is pretty much all they tell you..I see them out for at least 6 months. The biggest issue is if you miss it you have to wait 20 years..because that is the standard Disney policy..only re reased every 20 yrs. Do you have someone like your Mom who can buy it and keep it for you until you save up..or pay it off a bit at a time? When we were first married my Mom used to do that for us sometimes.

  • Thanks Sabrina! And I leave with my parents right now so I feel bad asking for anything...

  • They always come back. Usually they're "Out" for about a month or two.
    Check at thrift stores, garage sales, etc and you may find it there.

  • I don't think it's a 20 year cycle. I have teenagers who saw Beauty & the Beast when it first came out. I think it's only 7-10 years.

  • There's a $5 off coupon out right now. There was a $10 off one last week but it's not there anymore and Target had them on sale the first few days, don't know if they still are.

    Beauty and the Beast coupon from Disney  is where I get the coupons.  You have to sign up for the movie rewards thing and download the coupon printer thingy but it's all free.

  • It depends. I know that the lion king will not be back out until 2012. Checked. If you want to know then call the Disney movie club
