    New Disneyland Resort Vacation Planning Kit

    I just got the new Disneyland Resort Vacation Planning Kit in the mail, and to sum it up, its top-notch in comparison to the DLR DVD that Disney released last year that was more or less an over-glorified commercial.

    Of course, the new DVD is a huge, over glorified commercial for the Resort, but at least its presented professionally in packaging that is simple, yet stunning with its wealth of Shag artwork, including the 50th Anniversary map he released at the Disneyana shop last year, along with a whole new DCA map, Disneyland Resort Hotels images, and a couple other neat pieces of art including the new Hollywood Pictures Backlot fountain and New Orleans Square.

    I highly recommend getting the DVD just so you can see all the really slick Shag artwork in it. It's great stuff, even if the DVD doesn't help with planning a vacation or anything except for sending you into an overdose of saturated colors and quick, angled shots.

    Also a great little plus to ordering this FREE Vacation Planning Kit is that it comes with a coupon for 20% off any Disneyland Resort merchandise purchase of $100 or more (at select shopping locations).

    Here are some pictures of the DVD packaging, and some screen caps of the DVD's menus.

    Just got ours today. Very nicely done. Of course it is an ad, that is the whole point. It is on par with the WDW one.

    Yeah, I understand its a big commercial and that its supposed to be, what I was getting at was that it was presented so nicely, so professionally with really nicely designed menus and packaging. Last year's model of the vacation planning kit was a plain DVD case with a tacky DVD in it with nothing but a couple-minute commercial on it. No menu, no "special features" - nothing. Pop in the DVD and the commercial automatically started playing.

    The new VPK is really nice. And since I'm a huge sucker for Shag, I can't stop looking at the "mini brochure"

    Has anyone received their vacation planning DVD yet?

    For those that have ordered it a few weeks ago when I mentioned it in a post here, I was just wondering if anyone has received their Disneyland vacation planning DVD yet? I'm still waiting for mine to arrive.

    Is it as miserable as last year's? I remember an odd studio frame at the opening, no menu, 8min of video, and a paper phamplet that spent half it's pages telling you to go to WDW instead.

    The presentation of the DVD is fantastic.

    It features the shag artwork of the paper cover or holder, whatever you call it.

    The main portion of it is 16 minutes long with the long winded explatnation of everything new at the resort.

    Re: Has anyone received their vacation planning DVD yet?

    I havent ordered mine yet, I was so unhappy with last years that I wanted to wait to see what everyone here says. I suppose it shouldnt matter, it is a free DVD about DL but still.. I dont want to be so disappointed again. Ill still order it after I hear, I just wont be so excited if it is like last years.
