I'm in a Walmart right now and it's not that they are saying they are out of the cards, they have no clue what I'm talking about. Even the manager had never heard of these pre-order cards. Maybe they don't do this in my city.

Edit: On my way out of the store I saw a sign advertising pre-orders for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. It even said "see pre-purchase card for details". The manager still had no idea what the sign was talking about, she concluded that it must be a card that comes inside the movie when it is released. Uh, no, it wouldn't be a pre-order then, would it. Oh well, I'll just keep my Amazon pre-order.

Selection does vary by Walmart, and I'm sure since the cards were first available in November, they have been harder to come by as the movie got popular. I did still see them at a Walmart as least two weeks ago. Also, like Catching Fire they are labeled as prepurchase cards.

+1. All the Walmarts in Little Rock proper have been out of them for weeks if not months; I considered myself lucky to find some in a suburban Walmart a couple of weeks ago. (Ironically, I didn't get it till after I had preordered the 3D from Amazon UK.) My Vudu account today says I can watch it in X hours, apparently at 2AM here (midnight PST). I should also get the BD in the mail around the 18th; I intend to redeem its DC+ code at Google Play so I'll have it in HD on my Nook HD (Vudu only streams to Androids in SD).

One other note: In addition to the Walmart/Vudu preorder (streaming tomorrow, BD on the 18th), you can also preorder it at Vudu as streaming only in 2D (HDX, HD or SD) or 3D. 2D streaming-only preorders will get the extras (Get a Horse!, etc.) in streaming tomorrow; for now it appears in-store preorders like me won't get the extras till we get the BD, and those who pay big bucks for the Vudu 3D won't get them at all.
BD players: PS3 Slim 250GB; LG BP550 (region-free); HP P7-1010 (w/ LG WH12LS38K, AMD HD 6570, Hanns-G HL227, Altec Lansing 2.1 speakers, PDVD 14 & 16)

Sure, I'll agree to that, but closer to home I'll add the fact that it also means we don't own the films and they can disappear at any time, aka Disney films "going back into the vault" for real.

So, how did you get early access to the digital copy from Walmart?
I'm so sorry, I've been busy all day and I just got home

I actually did go to the store and the employees there knew nothing about it. They just kept telling me that since there's no date on the pre-order file, it'll just magically appear on my vudu account. Then I remembered asking the fellas here a few months ago and they told me that if I got it through walmart i'd get it a month early through the digital copy.

It is worth noting though and the Walmart copy ONLY comes with a vudu code. no iTunes.

This is the folder/file/envelope that I got. I got the last one in the store:

I'm sorry if this is too far off topic, but I think it belongs here because it adds to the mystery surrounding the bizarre way Disney is marketing Frozen in general. If you're into "Disney Infinity" (a video game platform for those that aren't familiar), have you noticed that it's now impossible to buy the "Frozen Toy Box Set" ( http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00EC6VARA )? I've tried Amazon, Walmart, Target, every Toys 'r' Us in a 50 mile radius, etc. Nope- it's nowhere. People are selling them on ebay for $60 or more. What's the deal, Disney?

I think it's because it was a limited run.
I know that they are now re-releasing the figures separately.
They've been out since November I think.

If you think about this way, don't look up the dolls.
Disney never re-stocked them and they originally sold for $15 I think. And now the cheapest you can get on eBay is over $50

I don't think they anticipated the movie would do this well. I know that they amped up their stock compared to Tangled and Wreck it Ralph and that still wasn't enough for the public. lol

Surprised we didn't find out the Best Buy exclusive until now. Here's hoping Walmart has an unannounced exclusive that resembles their previously rumored exclusive...

Wished those with the in store preorders had access to the extras too. But its better than last year with Wreck It Ralph's digital only early release window (since Disney wasn't on board the Vudu/Walmart preorder system yet and DigitalCopyPlus wasn't unveiled yet, but imagine how much more Blu-rays they would have sold of Wreck It Ralph if they had a in store preorder for the 2D Blu-ray with early digital Vudu only access).

Still not 100% on a DigitalCopyPlus code being included in the preorder Blu-rays due to Disney in the past producing a special version of Iron Man 3 without a code (someone did say they got a code, but I didn't and my version had a different UPC and the gold border slipcover). Either way I am also getting the Target Exclusive for the bonus DVD and will use the DigitalCopyPlus code in that for iTunes (iTunes is also great to redeem due to the possibility of the iTunes extras being updated for re-releases). But I do hope they include a code for the preorder folks.

Yeah I bought one of the last preorders today (all at the same store) in the St. Louis county/Jefferson County area today.

That's why I'm saying I'm "planning" on using my DC+ code elsewhere, just in case they don't have one; you can't get the reward without taking the risk. However, I think that's unlikely because (a) it would likely require a unique SKU to avoid it and (b) unlike IM3, Frozen fans will be expecting a DMR code (normally the same code is used for both DMR & DC+).

I guess that means BB won't have the 3D as an exclusive...

THE MAKING OF FROZEN:

http://stitchkingdom.tumblr.com/post/77785496545

Entire audio.


What the *bleep* was that?
Seriously? This is like shooting a dead horse.. What the hell Disney???!!

First no 3D release
Then skimp on the bonus features.
[Show spoiler]Then you give us a "musical" walkthrough about the making of Frozen, and it's basically just people saying the same thing over and over again....

Ok...
So how exactly does vudu work?
I thought that once you download the movie on your computer you don't have to rely on the internet. So why are there bars on the player?

Also, why is it only in SD? How come iTunes can have 1080p but this program can't?
