Maybe you ordered it before the release date but during the release week they force you to go to the store to buy it.

I've also ordered BB exclusives for delivery during release week. Have no idea why this scenario is so random, but it always is.

The BB's in my area are in terrible locations that I try not to go out of my way to visit. So I order a lot of things for delivery rather than in store.

The unedited version of Fantasia has never been released on home video, has it? Hell, didn't they stop even circulating prints of it after a short time?

Pinocchio's last transfer had many issues so a new one of that would be welcome. Just don't dump the old BD features disc until it's confirmed those old ones make the new disc.
It's hardly without precedent for Disney to release something more than once, but have they ever done it again that shortly after?

The Sleeping Beauty original BD release had far better features than the second BD release.
Why the hell did they do that? To cut the cost of a second disc or something? Was there anything new on the second release besides the DMA code, or should I just get the first one?

PS Wasn't there a big change on The Lion King and Beauty and the Beast BD releases?

I think the unedited version may have hit VHS or LD in another region. I've seen versions of the whole movie intact that seem to be from something other than a video of a print being projected. Just like Song of the South.

See below. Sleeping Beauty has already received two BD releases.

There were new features added. But some of the best from the previous release were dropped.

TLK had some changes made. Not sure about BatB.
