Can you get Minecraft on disc?

No. The most important part about Minecraft is the premium account which you register and pay for online. The client can be downloaded from there too, as it is relatively small. Selling it on disc would be problematic - you'd still have to pay for and register the premium account online, all that'd be on the disc is the client software which is free anyway. So Mojang would be spending money to produce a disc version of free software that the customer could have got after getting their account.
