Whoa! What Happened?! – Disneyland Planning DVD
I received my Disneyland Planning DVD about a week and a half ago through the mail. I was saving it for a good time, but, when I finally got around to it, I was shocked at what I saw! Being that I live in Florida, I always get the WDW Planning DVD and I thought it might be nice to get the Disneyland Planning DVD as well. When I got, I was horrified at the bad show in front of me. The video just started and showed me a screen that said:
the ant farmAfter about five seconds of the aforementioned screen, it proceeded to show me the introduction to the WDW DVD where it has Walt Disney at DL’s opening day then gives a basic run-down of new attractions at the parks. The video was very grainy and not nearly as refined as the one seen on WDW’s DVD. Then, the video ended. Nothing more, no menu, nothing. Surprised that this was it, I decided to go to the menu and was again horrified at what I saw. It was not at all refined, in fact, it was amateurish. The menu simply had the first frame of the “DVD Graphic Fulfillment” and under it:
DISNEY PARKS AND RESORTS
“DVD Graphic Fulfillment”
Avid Pix / Temp Mix
11/14Fri 9:29PMAt the menu’s heading it said: Disk 25. I wonder if this is just a huge mistake by the Disney Company or if it is just a way to make a cheap buck. This appears to be a “work in progress” DVD when you put it in the player, but the box and the disk look as if they were professionally made. Again, this is the introduction to the WDW DVD – this comes before the actual planning part and an animated menu with special features, including games, and a scene selection option. Could this error be widespread or is mine just a “collector’s item?” Hopefully this is a singular case of “bad show” because, if it is not, those non – Disney fans who wish to go to the parks for the first time may find the DVD to be unimpressive and may believe the parks to be the quality of the DVD – downright cheap!
Has this happened to anybody else?
P.S. I have pictures: How do I post them?
