The Disney Vault

Ever get a craving to see The Little Maid, or the less popular the Lady and the Tramp? Own a copy?

Well if you answered Yes of course! and then No!, then you are totally screwed. Too bad if you want to watch a Disney Classic. Thanks to the kind folks at disney who want to keep the value of their movies high, you can't just run out and buy your favorite animated oldie when the feeling strikes.

The disney vault is a cruel invention in which only one to two classic Disney films such as The Jungle Book, the Lady and the Tramp, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, basically any happy title from your childhood are available to buy at one time. And thanks to the dying art of the VHS cassette tape, they can't be found in just any rental shop. The rest are locked up tight unless you can find one on ebay, borrow a copy from a friend, or want to wait 2-5 years for it to pop randomly out of hiding. My advice is to start buying up the movies whenever a new one is released from the vault for a little while, just so you have it when the urge strikes to see a pretty pretty princess with butterflies flitting around her head hits. But this may be exactly what Disney wants.
