Don't bother exporting your movie as a 1080p MOV file, because using iDVD, you can't burn an HD DVD.
DVD-Video - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
To record moving pictures, DVD-Video uses either MPEG-2 compression at up to 9.8 Mbit/s (9,800 kbit/s) or MPEG-1 compression at up to 1.856 Mbit/s (1,856 kbit/s).
The following formats are allowed for MPEG-2 video:
At 25 frame/s, interlaced (commonly used in regions with 50 Hz image scanning frequency - PAL):
720 × 576 pixels (same resolution as D-1)
704 × 576 pixels
352 × 576 pixels (same as the China Video Disc standard)
At 29.97, interlaced (commonly used in regions with 60 Hz image scanning frequency - NTSC):
720 × 480 pixels (same resolution as D-1)
704 × 480 pixels
352 × 480 pixels (same as the China Video Disc standard)
The following formats are allowed for MPEG-1 video:
352 × 288 pixels at 25 frame/s, progressive (Same as the VCD Standard)
352 × 240 pixels at 29.97 frame/s, progressive (Same as the VCD Standard)
You'll need something like Roxio's Toast if you want HD dvds.
Roxio Toast 11 Family - DVD Burning - Video Conversion - Music and Video Capture for Mac
If you want to stay with iDVD then just send it straight to iDVD using iMovie's Share menu. At 66 minutes, it will fit on a standard dvd.
