Disney Parks dvd set?

I was unsure where to post this, sorry if it is in the wrong spot. I am considering ordering a DVD set with six discs called "Disney Parks: The Secrets, Stories and Magic Behind the Scenes":
http://www.amazon.com/Disney-Parks-D...sney+parks+dvd
I think they sell this at the parks. Has anyone gotten this and is it worth it if you already know a lot about Disney? Thanks.

I've never watched it (although I kinda want to now) but the Amazon reviews are good and the first/top review is from somebody who's been 8 times and learned a lot from watching.

These look like the Travel Channel specials. If you have Netflix, they are all on there.

They're available on Netflix instant viewing. They're worth watching once (for free,) but I wouldn't pay $20 for them.

I have this dvd set, It's pretty interesting and actually I paid $20 at Best Buy a couple years ago. The Disney Store has it at a higher price so I think $20 is a steal compared to others. These episodes aired (and probably still air) on Travel Channel, that's where I watched them first. So if you don't want to pay for Netflix maybe Travel Channel is airing it first.

We have the set. It is a bit dated but there is a lot of good information and it is a "fix" while waiting for the next trip.

You could also check to see if your library has them. Ours does.

Oh lord. My mom and I LOVE these Dvds. Seriously. When we need a disney fix, we pop one in! She bought her set at sams club, but I think they're at walmart as well...(I think I saw them there the other week, I can't remember though!)

I love pretty much everything about these Dvds. They are in our 'disney fix" dvd collection which also includes the modern marvels disney edition and man behind the myth...and some other ones my mom found (like the opening of Disneyland) and our disney planning dvd!

It gives good information too! Im going to borrow them from my mom sometime soon to brainwash my boyfriend.

We were successfully able to brainwash my father enough into talking him into two trips next year! Now that's progress!

I have three of the shows ( Behind the Scenes, Undiscovered Disney Parks, and Disney's Animal Kingdom) on my DVR. I just did a search on Disney and a channel was doing a marathon of the shows and I think they do it a lot. I would say a few times a month.


Each show is about an hour long and quite interesting. I like to watch it to get my Disney fix. Well that and the planning guide DVD...and the Best Places I have ever Been: Disney...and Unwrapped: Disney Delights.
