You can try dvdnav:// instead of dvd://.

I have at least one Disney DVD MPlayer cannot play correctly. It only works
with dvdnav://, but there are lots of hangs, probably while the DVD
tracks or titles are changed during playback.

I did not find a single title to play the whole movie, but I did not try
every one of the 99 titles.

VLC plays that DVD without problems. I prefer to use MPlayer with dvd://
for watching DVDs, but sometimes only VLC can play disc.

[I do have a couple of other Disney DVDs that work fine with MPlayer using
 dvd:// (or dvd://MOVIETITLE).]

Best regards,
Always use the right tool for the job.
