(This is Volume 2. Volume 1 is also available.)
In case you didn't shoot all the video you wanted during your vacation to Walt Disney World's The Magic Kingdom, I have a DVD backup of some of my TMK home movies available. These home movies were made by me in 1999. They were taped on my Sony Digital8 camcorder and the transfer is 100% digital from the master tape to the DVD so the quality is first generation. This is not a bootleg dub of a dub or anything like that -- it is just some of my home movies copied to DVD-R. (NOTE: I use Apple brand DVD-R media that is certified for video use and not cheap generic discs that might not work.)
This DVD-R is playable on most consumer DVD players but be sure to check this compatibility list first to make sure your player can handle DVD-Rs: http://www.apple.com/dvd/compatibility. If your DVD player is not listed, you may not be able to play this disc unless you have a computer that can play DVDs.(Most computers with DVD-ROM drives should be able to play it just fine.)
This DVD features a full menu system with background music and animated buttons for the video clips. The disc is divided into sections and contains the following videos:
Libery Square (Haunted Mansion)
(There is also a secret DVD-ROM directory which contains all 1255 digital pictures I have taken at the park from 1996-1999.)
Most of the ride thrus feature parts of the queue and/or pre-show. The quality is what you might expect from someone who takes a camera on the rides. Bright rides are bright and darker rides are dark, of course, but the stereo audio is good. Once again, check my feedback page to get some opinions on how the video quality is.
The disc will just be a DVD-R in a standard jewel case with the title hand written in marker. This is nothing fancy -- it is just a copy of my home movies made available to those who might have wanted to tape certain attractions but were unable to.
The disc will be shipped Priority Mail ($3.85 shipping) as soon as it is paid for. I will also throw in, by request, a CD-R containing small QuickTime movies of all my other home videos (featuring movies from Disneyland, The Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney/MGM Studios and the Disneyland Haunted Mansion Holiday).
Here are some photos of various screens from the DVD:
