Beta is a term used to loosely refer to early, pre-release versions of software. Beta versions of Epic Mickey have been seen through screenshots released online, in magazines, and more rarely through video footage. Many early screenshots and videos are referred to as being from the "beta stage", despite the fact that many of them would technically be considered prototype or alpha builds, mainly for simplicity sake and due to lack of public knowledge on the internal development cycle of Epic Mickey.
A limited number of demo discs were distributed to Best Buy locations before the game's release for use in Wii demo kiosks. Despite having a slightly lower version string, it is virtually identical to the final game with the exception of the demo ending once a certain point is reached and various demo-specific alterations. No other pre-release discs of the Epic Mickey games are known to exist.
