    After spending US$32 for the items plus US$40 shipping, I finally received the aforementioned items.

    If you need to know anything about the items or even a preview, please let me know.

    Is it worth US$70? Definitely not. At US$20 (for both items), definitely!

    Wishes CD is good, but not great. It seems they didn't re-tweak the EQ for home use so the treble is a tad muffled (at the park they use horn-loaded tweeters so it will sound harsh if the use home equalisation.) However, why can't they remaster it for home use? :(

    The DVD, it's great as a memory refresher, but not for anything else.
    It includes a 3.5 minute segment of Illuminations but no Wishes :(

    I want to make sure Disney is not making a single cent from these releases.

    I mean, c'mon, the picture quality on the DVD is actually much worse than my puny D8 camera!... and charging US$70 including shipping for them? it's atrocious! (and the shipping took about 3 weeks!)

    DIS-friends don't let DIS-friends got gypped... even by Disney.

    Happy Easter!
