In the remote likelihood that this is embraced, it'd be good for all of us. The more casual viewers who have properly configured setups, the less likely it is that the rest of us will be stuck with overprocessed discs pandering to the lowest common denominator.

Re: Disney World of Wonder Calibration disc

I think it's not a bad idea, but priced way too high. And how could they not include the 'How to Hook Up Your Home Theater' Goofy short?

Blu-ray.com review:
http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Disney.../16216/#Review
If you're in the market for a home theater calibration suite, you simply won't find a better release than Disney's World of Wonder. Exhaustive, effective and easy to use -- regardless of a user's skill level or prior knowledge -- this 2-disc AV essential is an indispensable tool sure to help anyone and everyone get the most out of their Blu-ray experience. See what it can do for you and your home theater.
--- I'm pretty sure you can redeem this using Disney Movie Rewards if anyone was inclined.

Looks surprisingly exhaustive. I may just pick it up.

EDIT: I just noticed I've posted here before and my post was to the same effect.

As Melvin has stated, if you have the points available, you can get this for free from Disney Movie Rewards.

I requested my copy the other day and I'm excited to try it out when I get it.

Oh wow. I just placed my order last night after putting in points for Fantasia and The Sorcerer's Apprentice.

It was 1225 points.

Giles, yes. It helps one setup 2.1, 5.1, 6.1 and 7.1 systems.

Re: Disney World of Wonder Calibration disc

Oh, so the "WOW" stands for World Of Wonder- I thought it was a reference to the legendary THX "Wow!" demo laserdisc.

So does this include the Goofy How to hook up your Home Theater cartoon or not? I saw a picture of it on the back cover. I know there's another DVD released recently that has it.

Re: Disney World of Wonder Calibration disc

I redeemed some of my Disney Movie Rewards points for this on the first day it was released as a reward, but haven't gotten any shipping notice e-mail yet.

I hope I'm still getting it. It now showing as Out of Stock worries me.

have you seen it? I think it played theatrically before a recent animated feature - it's rather hysterical actually.

Re: Disney World of Wonder Calibration disc

I'd actually consider getting this since Disney does such a great job with all of their Blu-ray releases and it would be nice to have something so in-depth and exhaustive when it comes to setting up your home theater and calibrating picture quality, etc. Not to mention having some Goofy hosted shorts and explanations sounds pretty cool.

However, with this type of release Disney really should have tried to shoot for a lower price point. No way I'm going to pay $29.99 to get something like this when I don't even pay above $20 for Disney catalog releases.

Re: Disney World of Wonder Calibration disc

I own Avia Guide to Home Theater on DVD. Does anyone know if it is worth it to upgrade to one of the BD calibration discs? I assume since they have test patterns in HD the results will be more accurate?

I believe the disc has a different Goofy cartoon, but not How to Hook Up Your Home Theater.

Aren't those bulk orders intended for other retailers to purchase? I remember a post a while back talking about Amazon listing something similar for another disc.

Too bad it looks to already be out of print. Picked up a copy at Fry's, albeit for a lot more than what I wanted to pay for it.

I tried to snag a free copy from Disney Rewards but they had already pulled it as well.
