Hopefully by not simply ignoring the issue like they seem to be doing with book royalties.

That's one possibility. I'm also a bit afraid they may just cut or revise anything they don't have a license for, resulting in a weirdly edited mess (similar to some of the WKRP DVD releases). Disney+ has a bad track record for anyone interested in watching the original versions of anything.

Given that music publishers still have piles of lawyers that individual authors don't, I wouldn't expect that.

I expect they got resolved largely because the value proposition for Disney has changed. Much of this already got released to home video. But now, supporting a subscription service, they get more bang for the buck, I imagine, and could throw some cash at the remaining issues.

For home video release, I believe they just left out a couple of episodes that had outstanding issues, rather than editing them.
