From the article:

With expectations high for both releases to be a "trojan horse" for Blu-ray — meaning the kind of huge A-list titles that will entice new consumers to finally dive into the format — Disney appears to be pulling out all the stops to ensure that fans will not be disappointed.

Each title will be a "75GB" release, aka a BD-50 dual-layer disc for the movie, and an extra BD-25 single-layer disc with additional extras.
