Put them on gumtree as a lot of motor impaired disabled people find them easier to load than dvds.

Most charity shops don't accept them anymore so will probably just have to bin them.
Burn
Maybe eBay? Other than that, no ideas, sorry, we tipped a load last week (don’t think any were Disney though)
VHS to Digital converter?
Make a fort?

Perhaps to make future collectables.
It has happened to vinyl.
Ring your local hospitals children ward. See if they still use VHS.
THANKS FOR THE REPLIES, I WILL GIVE KESTER76'S IDEA A GO.
Some Disney titles aren't available in their original form on DVD (Muppet Christmas Carol, Song Of The South) so you may want to check before disposing of them in case you have a rarity.
OFAH are worth a few quid...

Bin down our tip for them. It's marked up for videos. Job lot for x amount of £s if your lucky but not much good to most. Naff picture to start with..
I rang up my local hospice and asked if they wanted them. They jumped at it. The hospitals will use them for children etc or sell them on and money raised goes back into buying items for the children's ward . They even asked for broken video tapes as they got children to make art work with the black tape etc in my city hospital.
