If you are anything like me you’re setting aside the Disney Movie money right now!  As a former manager of both Blockbuster Video and Hollywood Video, I’m a parent whose children were literally raised inside of video stores.  That’s actually not an understatement.  My son’s love for acting and the theatre come from the fact he and his sister frequently visited me at work.  Their movie collections were priceless.  Disney is known for amazing work but now that they have the Marvel Universe as well,
