The discs are packed with bonus features, including a new audio commentary on Fantasia by Disney historian Brian Sibley and on the Blu-ray edition of Fantasia 2000 the seven-minute collaboration between Walt Disney and Salvador Dali, Destino, complete with a feature-length documentary on its making.

The release of these classics ties into the release of The Sorcerer’s Apprentice (Disney, $29.99 DVD, $39.99 DVD/Blu-ray, $44.99 DVD/Blu-ray/digital copy), starring Nicolas Cage.
