We are going to Florida in Sept 11th staying on IDrive, want to buy some Dvd's for my collection.
Where's the best place to get them
Now that Virgin at DTD has closed down, the choice of stores isn't so good. There's a place at the Florida Mall, inside the foodcourt area, called FYE (think it stands for 'For Your Enjoyment') which has a good selection but my kids tell me that the prices aren't all that competitive.
It goes without saying that all the Disney stores have a stock of their own DVDs! (If there's a Disney marketing opportunity, they grab it!).
Wal-Mart and Target have a pretty good selection, as does Best Buy.
I agree with Disneyveteran, I always get some things in here, great selection. So much better than my record store
You can buy DVDs also at WalMart and Best Buy.
BE AWARE: You do know about region coding - don't you? And you do have a multi-region machine, right?
If not (or if these terms mean nothing to you) then don't buy DVDs in the USA. They may very well not work.
walmart and target are great for dvds... have gotten many in the past, but like previous posts say make sure your player is de regioned!
I agree with SCAN60,
If your dvd player is multi-region then there is nothing to stop you buying dvds out there but if it's not then i wouldn't bother. American dvds run on region 1 and in the UK our dvds are region 2. If you put a region 1 dvd in a region 2 player then it wont work and your money will be wasted.
I'd stick to the safe route and not buy any if you don't know
Ive got a multi-region DVD player (most in the UK are, some require a simple handset hack) but TBH I've always found DVD's cheaper buying online from Amazon in the UK than buying locally in the US.
I'd be interested in looking for blu-rays this year but unfortunately my blu-ray player is my Sony PS3 which CAN NOT be hacked so is UK-only.
I know about the handset hack as well but i can never be bothered to try it, did it once but that was it. I would suggest buying off the internet Amazon is pretty good. I use Play.com they have a lot of sales with most dvds at like £2.99 each and delievery is free and normally within 3-7 days. Also good because the dvds are sent through your normal post so no waiting in lol
With Blu-rays, although there is region coding many of the discs are released region free.
this site is worth looking at as it gives you a complete list of what films have what coding.
I have a English PS3 but at least half my blu-rays are from the US.
