In general terms series are much more cheaper at Amazon UK. One specific example The Sopranos complete collection is more expensive about 32€ in the US now.

The titles in each sale that are confirmed region-locked are as follows:
  • 2D sale: Dumbo, The Jungle Book, Pinocchio, The Princess and the Frog, Ratatouille, Sleeping Beauty, Up, WALL-E
  • 3D sale: Up (2D discs region-locked, 3D disc region-free)
2D titles unreleased/in the Vault here, but region-free & in the sale: 101 Dalmatians (announced for Feb 2015 here), Aladdin (likely but unconfirmed fall 2015 here), Bambi, Fantasia, Lady and the Tramp, Peter Pan. (Frozen is the only 3D title in the sale that isn't available here in 3D.)
This is confusing because, for example, Amazon UK's site says that Jungle Book is region-free and Fantasia is region-locked.

Repeat once again for effect. Amazon UK is the last place to go for and the worst source of information on Region Status of Bluray.

Jungle Book with snazzy slip has B & C region codes only on the case and disc. Unplayable in a US PS3 despite the Amazon UK header saying region-free.

How does the Disney thing work? Can you order 4 titles and get 4 for 32 pounds?

In case anyone else is interested, figure I can save some effort on your part. Amazon UK has this on the page for Frozen 3D:

"Sorry, we can't deliver this item to the United States"

That is only because what you are looking at is sold by a third-party merchant. Select the proper amazon as the seller and they'll ship to the US.

I purchased 101 Dalmatians, Fantasia, Lady and the Tramp and Bambi from Amazon UK, of course for the 2 for 16 deal. At the time of purchase, they ALL stated region free. Now, none of them state region free Luckily for me, they all play fine on my SONY bd player. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that when The Lion King and Beauty and the Beast (both say region free right now) are delivered I have the same results otherwise will have to return.
And yes they are not always accurate with their region coding. I purchased the animal documentary "LIFE" (stated and still states region free) and it did not play on my SONY player but apparently played on other region A players.

Amazon is known to be regularly inaccurate with region info. According to the Blu-ray.com database, all the Disney titles above are region-free in the UK; a few haven't been tested in Region C, but the original versions are all playable in Region A (and newer versions are simply re-pressings of at least one original disc).

Life (from the BBC, not Disney) is a different issue: Though it is region-free, its main video is 1080i50, common for TV shows in former PAL countries like the UK and the rest of Europe; some U.S. players will play 50Hz video, but the PS3 will not. (The U.S. version was converted to 1080p24, playable in all BD players worldwide.)
BD players: PS3 Slim 250GB; Sherwood BDP-5004 (region-free); HP P7-1010 (w/ LG WH12LS38K, AMD HD 6570, Hanns-G HL227, Altec Lansing 2.1 speakers, TMT 6, PDVD 11)
A/V hardware: Vizio E3D320VX 3DTV; Sony HT-SS380; Vizio Co-Star (Google TV); Radiient HDMI switch; Nook HD; Galaxy Tab 3 Lite; Moto G; iPhone 3GS

'Le Mans' and 'The Italian Job' (original) are both part of Amazon UK's 3 for 17 Pounds promo, making each film about $9 US, or $11 with shipping figured in.

There are two versions of the Bambi/Bambi 2 double feature Blu-Ray. Are they both region free? The most recent one is unconfirmed according to the database.

Is there a list of which Disney titles are region free? I know there are some titles on the previous page, but what about a big list?

Most Disney UK reissues are the same discs as before; if the old one is region-free (it is per the database), then so is the new one.
BD players: PS3 Slim 250GB; Sherwood BDP-5004 (region-free); HP P7-1010 (w/ LG WH12LS38K, AMD HD 6570, Hanns-G HL227, Altec Lansing 2.1 speakers, TMT 6, PDVD 11)

Thank you! I know I missed the last Amazon UK Disney sale, but is there likely to be one again sometime soon, or should I just order now?

Delivery time, or price? Both are subjective.

-If delivery time, you're obviously going to wait longer (and may not have tracking) for stuff from the UK.
-If price, remember that Amazon UK will charge shipping.


It just depends on the individual Amazon UK deal if you're 'mer-can.

It's a lot better if it's not released in the US. As a general rule, I don't find that many individual movies are cheaper at all. The Boxsets seem to where UK has the biggest impact for some reason.

I just don't think you'll find a lot of UK 3D's for less than $15 each. It will cost about $5 to ship your first item and $1.50 for each additional so except for the occasional item I always expect US 3D to come to to the $15 range within a year of release (often often into the $10-12 for the lesser films).

If their current 3D Blu-ray "sale" is any indication, no. The sale is 2 for 25 Pounds, or approx. $39 U.S.

One crazy thing about ordering from Amazon UK is that the shipping cost is usually very reasonable in comparison to here in the U.S. My cost for 4 titles, incl. one boxset, was around $10.
