According to Amazon, "The Little Mermaid is back in Walt Disney's Vault" so is not readily available at present. You could probably get it on ebay or Amazon marketplace HTH

I thought Disney did the withdraw for 7 years thing to catch different generations....or did I dream that?!!

Disney classics are only released approx every 10 years and then withdrawn after christmas. I can't remember ever seeing it anywhere in recent years so it might be coming round again soon HTH smile

Disney deliberately remove classics from sale to keep demand high. They then release a "special edition for a short period at inflated prices. Lion King is due to come out in November having been unavailable for ages.

Think The Little Mermaid is out again in 2013, Lady and the Tramp is out next year sometime.
I want both of those so was asking in the Disney store!

I recently bought Lion King and Cinderella from an Asian website.

The DVDs were absolutely fine, I just have to go to settings each time to turn off Chinese subtitles.
