Amazon.com lists the 3D/2D/DVD/Digital Copy Combo Pack available for pre-order.
Oddly enough, there is no mention of bonus features yet, but thanks to a tip from the forums at hidefninja.com, we have a list of potential bonus feature candidates from the Amazon Italy’s listing for the steelbook edition of the film. While we are still awaiting an official announcement for release (hopefully with confirmed list of bonuses), here are some ideas of what we might expect:

Beginning May 28, Disney Cruise Line hopefuls will have the opportunity to win a seven day voyage aboard the Disney Fantasy with the ‘Catch Stitch Sweepstakes’ available at CatchStitchSweepstakes.com. At stake is a single grand prize of either a western- or eastern-Caribbean vacation aboard Disney Cruise Line’s newest ship, the Disney Fantasy.
Although the sweepstakes’ temporary homepage is advertising a vacation at Disney Cruise Line’s private island, Castaway Cay, the official rules clearly define the prize as being a regular vacation which will, of course, include day stops at Castaway Cay. The vacation will be for up to four guests and includes roundtrip airfare.
To celebrate parents and guardians who foster their child’s creativity and teach valuable life lessons through storytelling, Disney Consumer Products (DCP) has launched a nationwide search for the Winnie the Pooh ‘Storyteller of the Year.’ The ‘Storyteller of the Year’ user generated contest taps into parents’ love of Winnie the Pooh and invites them to share the loveable bear’s story in a creative way through video and the use of fun props including Pooh plush toys, puppets, blankets or any other Pooh item. To enter, all parents and families need to do is create a simple, one-minute video that’s sweet like ‘hunny,’ full of wonder or funny, as they read a select Winnie the Pooh story to their child and show their favorite Pooh items. From April 22 through May 15, 2013, videos can be submitted online at DisneyStore.com/PoohStoryteller or from any mobile device. Complete rules and a list of prizes can be found here.
Walt Disney Studios has provided us with these ‘fun facts’ for Marvel’s Iron Man 3, arriving in theaters on May 3, 2013, which we present to you below. In addition, Disney Parks today announced that beginning April 13, its Innoventions attraction located in Disneyland’s Tomorrowland in Anaheim, California will be hosting a ‘Stark Expo’ of sorts, featuring actual set pieces from the film. The ‘Iron Man Tech Presented by Stark Industries’ exhibition will give Disneyland park guests the chance to see Tony Stark’s Hall of Armor, featuring Iron Man suits Mark I-VII -– the same suits featured in Iron Man 3. Guests will even be able to virtually ‘suit up’ via simulation technology, that will allow them to see what it’s like to operate the latest pieces of the Mark 42 Iron Man armor, even getting the chance to test out its infamous repulsor blasts. The exhibition is scheduled to run through September.
