How to Remove Protection and Rip Disney DVDs Safely and Fastly?

"I am looking to copy my daughter's Disney Movie DVDs (and a handful of Blu Ray), especially the latest Disney one Moana in 2017, put them in a memory card for her to use on her android tablet. Any ideas guys? I'm looking for ease of use."

"I just bought some Disney DVD discs collection of 'Trolls', 'Zootopia' etc, and would like to copy and rip those DVD, but I have no idea if those DVD discs are under Disney X-project DRM protection. Is there any way to figure out?"

Disney movies on DVD, as you probably know, have some pretty sophisticated DRM (digital rights management) technology. That is, copy protection. I can't even watch most Disney DVDs on my Windows 10 laptop, let alone to rip them. As Disney uses AACS to protect HD DVD and Blu-ray discs. Accordingly, the latest released DVD disc by Disney (as well as by Paramount and Warner) usually has 99 titles and the DVD movie size is larger than 40 GB, which makes it almost impossible to make its DVD copy and backup. Even most DVD ripping software like Handbrake announced they can rip while dealing with the recently released DVDs, they always resulted in tripling normal DVD storage amount like 4GB to 12 GB, however, that doesn't mean the output quality is HD yet the movie is still very grainy.
