Disney fans will have more ways than ever to be rewarded when Disney Movie Rewards becomes Disney Movie Insiders on September 26th.

The transition was announced at the Disney Movie Rewards’ member celebration at Disney California Adventure. Members will continue to receive points for Disney films, either by seeing them in theaters or by purchasing them on home video, but there are some changes. Disney Movie Insiders will offer more points for purchasing movie tickets, and digital movie purchases will now also earn points.

And of course, there will continue to be a variety of rewards offered for these points, but new to the program is the ability to donate points to charity through Disney Team of Heroes. As The Walt Disney Company explains, “Disney Team of Heroes combines Disney’s beloved characters with the unparalleled creativity of its employees and cast members to bring classic stories to life in innovative ways that are designed to reduce the anxiety of a hospital stay.”

Also announced were a new app for Disney Movie Insiders, as well as “content, member exclusives, interactive experiences, and more.”

All Disney Movie Rewards accounts that have been logged into within the last five years will automatically transition to Disney Movie Insiders accounts on September 26th. All points in member accounts will be moved over during the transition. If you haven’t logged into your Disney Movie Rewards account in five or more years and wish to transition over to Disney Movie Insiders, you must log into your current account before September 23rd.

Could be an improvement, but we have to see when it launches. Pros: DMR launched way back when people bought a lot of DVDs and CDs, so the program was all about physical media. So, a change to recognize digital sales is welcome and long overdue. What would be really nice is if it will also recognize membership in Disney+. Why would I even buy downloads if I get those movies via Disney+? This is where the world is moving next, so might as well be ready now. Cons: Not sure yet, my biggest fear is that they might take… Read more »
