The Best Disney Movie Sets You Can Buy in 2024 - IGN (2024)

Disney+ is bundling Hulu and Max into one streaming service and ready to embark on the password-sharing crackdown — all while increasing subscription prices on an annual basis. And to make things even worse, they’re removing content from the platform and rendering them inaccessible anywhere else, even original shows (RIP Willow).

If your love of Disney movies goes beyond a Disney+ subscription, you’re probably considering going back to purchasing physical media. Lucky for you, we searched for the best Disney movie sets for you to add to your physical media collection — whether you want a nostalgia hit or you want to share your favorite classic Disney movies with your children. Here are the best Disney movie sets available in 2024 to get you started.

Disney Legacy Animated Film Collection

Disney Legacy Animated Film Collection

Includes a total of 100 films.

In celebration of Disney’s centennial anniversary last year, Disney released an ultimate collection of 100 animated Disney and Pixar films, ranging from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs to Elemental.

With the collection you get 100 films on Blu-ray discs, plus a digital code for each one. Also included are 18 Blu-ray discs of bonus content from Pixar. All of those discs are housed in three massive volumes that fold out like a super-sturdy pop-up book, displaying each film’s movie poster next to its disc slot.

Beyond the movies themselves, you also get a collectible crystal Mickey ears hat with a Disney100 engraving. On top of that, there’s a lithograph, plus a numbered certificate of authenticity. All of this comes at a very expensive price.

Toy Story - 4 Movie Collection

Toy Story - 4 Movie Collection

Includes all 4 films.

If you’re a Pixar buff, the Toy Story - 4 Movie Collection is a great way to introduce your kids to the one movie that revolutionized animation at Disney and beyond as well as three of its sequels. This collection will take them on a journey through friendship and adventure from the point of view of the toys that come alive when their owners leave the room and explore the big world around them.

The Toy Story quadrilogy serves as a visual wonder for children, but for adults, the films are an exercise in observing how far CGI graphics have come over a 24-year span — from Toy Story to Toy Story 4 — and how they continue to improve in the years after. It's a great collection to pick up ahead of Toy Story 5.

Ultimate Pixar Collection

Ultimate Pixar Collection

Includes 9 movies and a collection of Pixar shorts.

Complement the Toy Story quadrilogy with the Ultimate Pixar Collection, giving you the best Pixar movies from the studio’s heyday. In addition to the first two Toy Story movies, the collection comes with A Bug’s Life, Monsters Inc., Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, Cars, and Ratatouille. As a bonus, it has Pixar Shorts Collection (Vol. 1) and The Pixar Story, the documentary that gives you a look inside Pixar Animation Studios and hear insights from the animators who work there.

There are 27 Pixar films in total, but this collection, which was published in 2008, is the only one we could find on Amazon that’s of good quality. That leaves 15 movies missing: Wall-E, Up, Toy Story 3, Cars 2, Brave, Monsters University, Inside Out, The Good Dinosaur, Finding Dory, Coco, The Incredibles 2, Toy Story 4, Onward, Soul, Luca, Turning Red, Lightyear, and Elemental.

High School Musical: 3-Movie Collection

High School Musical: 3-Movie Collection

Includes all 3 films from the Disney Channel Original trilogy.

If you want to share memories of the Friday nights you come home from school to watch a Disney Channel Original Movie with your family, the High School Musical: 3-Movie Collection is the best movie set to do it. This collection comes with High School Musical: Encore Edition, which gives the original and sing-along cuts of the film; High School Musical 2: Extended Edition, which has a musical number not seen in the original airing; and High School Musical 3, the only film in the series to release in theaters.

The High School Musical set will get you and your family into karaoke mode and belt out your favorite songs, from “Breaking Free” to “Bet On It.” Bonus points if your kids are already watching High School Musical: The Musical: The Series on Disney+ and singing along to songs from that show — and following Olivia Rodrigo’s music career outside of it.

Disney Thrills & Chills: 4-Movie Collection

Disney Thrills & Chills: 4-Movie Collection

Includes 4 films inspired by Disney attractions.

The Disney Thrill & Chills: 4-Movie Collection is made for fans of the most iconic Disney Parks rides and attractions. This collection carries an even balance of two horror movies and two comedies, including Tower of Terror, The Haunted Mansion (the 2003 one with Eddie Murphy), Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride (or The Wind in the Willows in the UK), and The Country Bears.

This set is excellent if you love the cinematography of the films that are inspired by the greatest Disney attractions, and want to introduce your kids to the stories behind them. That way, they’ll get an inkling of what to expect when they visit them at the parks.

The Disney Classics Complete 55 Disk Movie Box Set 1937-2018 is one of the best Disney movie collections to start building up your physical Disney movie library.
