Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs - Diamond Edition Combo Pack

The Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs: Diamond Edition Combo Pack was released on October 6th. This new edition features both a BluRay and a DVD of the movie in one package. I was given the opportunity through One2One Network to preview and review the film.

As soon as the movie arrived earlier this week, I made a 'date' with my daughter to watch Snow White this weekend. She was excited. We have been reading Snow White in our big Princess book and this was the first Princess movie that we sat down to watch. What fun!

I really like that the BluRay disc also includes a standard DVD. We only have a BluRay player in our basement. The car and the family room both only play DVDs. Of course, we wanted to experience the full impact, so we headed down to the media room to watch the movie this morning, where we could enjoy the improved picture quality and 7.1 Surround sound featured on the BluRay.

When we put the BluRay in, the Magic Mirror on the Wall, that is part of the menu, addressed us with a 'Good Morning' greeting and commented on it being our first time there. I thought that was kind of cool. The movie looked great. We chose to watch the original 4:3 ratio, rather than a special feature they offer called Disney View, which features the art of Toby Bluth in place of the black sidebars.

My daughter asked a lot of questions during the movie, she is 2 after all. From the get go, she wanted to know where the dwarfs were and then when we got to the part of the movie they were in, she kept asking about those 'boys'. All-in-all, it was a great experience. We explored a few of the extra features, including BD Live. There are also many other features that we have yet to explore on both the DVD and the BluRay version as well as on the bonus material BluRay disc, including games and activities, commentary, 'Snow White Returns', Karaoke sing-along and more.

If you already own Snow White on DVD, you can go here to get a $10 coupon when you upgrade to the Diamond Edition. This deal is only good until October 20th.

There also was a coupon available here to save $10 . This coupon, when I printed it last week expired on 10/10, so I'm not certain if it is still available or not - but you can give the link a try. Many stores have it on sale this week. In addition, there is a rebate available when you purchase Snow White and Hefty plates, bowls or bags.

Alternatively, you can use coupon code SNOWHITE at and save $10, getting it for $9.95. I've not been able to find anything that indicates how long this code is good for, but it is worth a try.

I did not receive any compensation for this post, but did receive an advanced copy of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs - Diamond Edition from One2One and Disney.
