I got my hands on some just-released Dumbo and Cinderella Blu-ray™ and DVDs and I was so excited to get the kids settled in for some quiet time to watch these old and new classics. It was the perfect opportunity to get them to settle down for some quiet time while it was just way too hot outside to play.

CINDERELLA: ANNIVERSARY EDITION is now available on Digital and Blu-ray™

I’ve seen many versions of the Cinderella story but none beat the original. OK, I am lying because the newly revamped 70th anniversary has just been added to the Walt Disney Signature Collection and it is pretty amazing, all shiny and new. It even has a new In Walt’s Words: The Envisioning of Cinderella which guides you through the movie with extra tidbits of information playing overtop the movie. It’s the behind-the-scenes you didn’t know you needed. CINDERELLA: ANNIVERSARY EDITION IS NOW AVAILABLE ON DIGITAL AND BLU-RAY™.

DUMBO Available on Digital, 4K Ultra HD™,  and Blu-ray Now

I cried hard watching the new Dumbo live-action remake and I wonder if it was because it was my first time watching any Dumbo movie. I was not prepared for the sadness but also wow was it endearing. Disney and director Tim Burton teamed up to bring the original animated film to life and the amazing A+ star-studded cast gave the performance of their lives in this film.

Disney invites fans to fall in love again with this heartfelt story, in which differences are celebrated, family is cherished and dreams take flight, when it swoops into homes on Digital in HD and 4K Ultra HD™ and physically on 4K Ultra HD,  Blu-ray™ and DVD — with never-before-seen bonus features, deleted scenes, Easter eggs and bloopers. DISNEY’S DUMBO IS NOW AVAILABLE ON DIGITAL AND BLU-RAY™.


Please comment below and let me know why you want to win a copy of both these movies and we will draw a winner at midnight on Monday, July 15, 2019. Winner will need to claim their copy by noon on Tuesday. Good luck! PS. Open to Canadians only.

You can purchase both of these movies at your local stores that sell DVDs or through Amazon.ca. You can find both titles in our Amazon storefront for movies we recommend here.

    I want to win because my family loves watching movies and we do not own either of these classics. I find that movies are available for streaming on so many platforms these days, but a Disney movie must be owned to be watched <3

    I love every minute of time that I spend with my amazing niece and three nephews. We love snuggling up on the couch and eating popcorn while watching movies before turning in for the night during sleepovers. I enjoy sharing the Disney movies that were favourites of mine while growing up with them – making new memories while holding on to old ones!

    I used to have all Disney movies on VHS. There was a time when we were not doing well and I sold them to get necessities like food. I’ve been slowly trying to build up my collection again. I love Disney movies and watch them over and over again. Now that the live action ones are coming to the big screen, I am falling in love with the classics all over again. I also love watching them with my grandson. He loves Disney just as much as I do. Thank you so much for this chance.

    Cinderella is mt favourite Disney movie and Dumbo was my daughter growing up! She always wanted to watch it. Then the VHS tape we had recorded broke. I couldn’t find the movie anywhere.When she was in her 20’s Disney released the movie on DVD and I bought it for her stocking stuffer that Christmas. I would love to watch this version with her and my granddaughters. Thank you for the chance.

    I would love to win because we don’t own either movie. While I’ve seen Cinderella, my kids have yet to experience the magic of the Disney film. They are familiar with the story of Cinderella though. We missed Dumbo in theaters so none of us have seen it yet. It would be a great film to watch for family movie night. Thanks for the chance to win both movies. 🙂

  67. July 12, 2019 / 3:09 pm

    I love Disney. We go to Disney World/Land every year. Family vaca – woo! I have all the movies, and all the music, and know all the words. LOL. I want to be able to spread the joy outside of my home and give the movies to a less fortune family. I also volunteer at the local foodbank. All children need joy in their heart, old and young.

    Growing up, I watched the Wonderful World of Disney every Sunday night from 6-7 pm. I also saw every Disney movie that appeared in theatres. I loved every moment of every film. My favourite of them all has always been Cinderella. Unfortunately, when we moved, my copy of it disappeared so I would be thrilled to win a new one. My kids have never seen Dumbo so it would be nice to win a copy of it, too.

    Growing y up Cinderella was my favourite movie and it also became a favourite of my daughter. Now that she has a child of her own, I know my granddaughter would enjoy sharing the tradition of the beauty of Cinderella. I enjoyed the cartoon and books about Dumbo and we would enjoy watching the actual movie with my granddaughter. There is nothing more adorable than when Dumbo shakes his ears.

  97. Kristen Fuga
    July 15, 2019 / 1:53 am

    Would love to win both Cinderella and Dumbo as it’s so tough to find the original Disney movies and they aren’t on streaming networks very often. I haven’t seen the original Cinderella or Disney in years!! Would love to watch with my niece and nephew and my own kids one day. 🙂

  98. Barb Mcquoid

    I didn’t enter this because I didn’t want to see the Dumbo, I can’t handle sad movies anymore. I’m a big old wuss and frankly I think there is more than enough sadness in the world without looking for it in my entertainment. I wanted to ask/suggest Ever After with Drew Barrymore if you haven’t seen it, it is my very favourite movie.

    My grandkids all love Disney movies and go to see all of the ones for kids.
