Way to go, Disney!

I just read an article stating that Disney will be including a regular DVD with several Blu-Ray releases. As both a new Blu-Ray owner, and a parent of two five-year-old Disney fans, I'm pretty thrilled about this. Our SUV/crossover has a DVD player for long trips (our rule: one-way Trips of >= 1 hour only), and we were curious about what we were going to do if/when we started moving to Blu-Ray for our purchases. I don't know if this will affect Pixar releases (our Wall-E, for example, has no DVD copy), but it'll be nice knowing that at least for some purchases, we get the hi-def version AND one we can play on those >= 1 hour car trips.
