Disney History

The Walt Disney Company, usually just referred to as Disney, was founded in Los Angeles in 1923 by Walt and Roy Disney.  Originally a cartoon studio, the company got started by producing silent cartoons.

In 1928, Walt created Mickey Mouse.  Steamboat Willie, their first cartoon with sound, was a huge success.

In 1934, Disney began work on its first feature length film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.  The film went on to become the highest grossing film of its era.

In 1955, the company opened Disneyland, a cartoon themed theme park.

Walt Disney died in 1966 and Roy took over as CEO.  Walt Disney World in Florida opened in 1971 and Roy Disney died 2 months later.

In 1984, Michael Eisner was brought on as company CEO.  Current CEO, Robert Iger, replaced Eisner in 2005.

The Walt Disney Company is current the world’s largest media conglomerate when measured by annual revenue.  The Disney corporate office is located in Burbank, CA.

I had read about the layoffs the Disney cartoon animators a while ago and did nothing. Yesterday I read the heart breaking story, “NYT: Laid Off Disney Employees Made to Train Foreign Replacements” at Disney World. I can no longer sit idly by. I read the article to my whole family and posted the same article on facebook, and encourage all to share with their friends–just how horrible Disney treats it’s faithful workers.

Just absolutely astonished that Disney would treat it’s workers so badly.

Until something in done to remedy what Disney has done to all it’s workers and their families that not only were laid off, but “FORCED” to train their replacements under the threat of not receiving any severance pay–my family will not watch, see any movies nor go to any Disney parks–nor the new Aulani Resort here on Oahu–or elsewhere around the world.

I do not think that Walt Disney would be so cruel to it’s faithful American workers.

Very upset,

NYC Coach with Stomach Cancer becomes like a father to inner city middle school girls: Here’s my story

My name is Christopher Astacio. I am currently a Physical Education teacher and softball coach for a special group of girls in the South Bronx. My girls who I consider like daughters have endured what most adults have yet or never wish to experience. From molestation to rape to making cuts on their arms to hide the pain, there are times where I commend them for their strength and fortitude. Since most of my girls do not have fathers, they look to me. I raised funds to send my girls to Florida State University so that they could train with their softball team and receive mentoring. I brought together 55 Donors to donate $40K in just 5 days for our trip that took place on April 7-10. I have attached a link to a video/documentary of this trip. This team has grown together so much and I would love you to see their accomplishments. Dealing with stomach cancer, my team has given me the strength and support to stay positive.

During one of several college tours, the Lady Tigers visited a university located in upstate New York, nearly 3 hours away from their middle school. My girls were completely mesmerized by the breath-taking beauty of Pace University and also stricken with disbelief. Accustomed to dismal housing projects, streets riddled with filth, gang presence nearly on every street corner, and a concrete playing field filled with broken glass, etc. most girls did not realize such places like this existed in NY nor they did fathom that they would one day step foot on a “real softball field” made of grass and dirt and not concrete. At that moment, it hit me that most of my girls have never step foot out of the South Bronx, let alone New York. Therefore, a trip to Florida State University in Tallahassee, Florida would be a great and awesome experience for my girls to witness firsthand how far education and softball can take them. Donations came in slowly, $50 or $100 at a time. But then all of a sudden, on the second day $15K had been donated. By the third day, we had a total of $25K with donations given by anonymous donors, capital one, and teachers from across the United States. It seem like donations had stopped since nothing was given on the fourth day. By the end of the fifth day that the project went live, I received a phone call from my wife, ecstatic, screaming “I can’t believe you did it”. I cannot begin to describe the overwhelming feeling of emotions that flooded me on that day, especially after telling my girls that their dream of seeing a professional college team had come true. However, just a few weeks late I’d to break the new to my girls that they had found a small cancerous mass in my stomach. And that it might get worse before it gets better which might prevent me from going with them to Florida. Telling my girls that I was sick again was the hardest thing I ever had to do. It was right before Christmas break that I choose to tell my girls since I didn’t know what the future held for me. I knew what I was going to say and how I was going to say it but having so many eyes focuses me, I couldn’t speak. Thankfully, I have some really smart girls and one asked if I was sick again. Girls began to cry uncontrollably. The whole team held me in a group hug. Since I already suffered from severe acid reflux, my health began to slowly deteriorate. My team captain really stepped up and took over most softball practices. She really kept the team together. Girls would come down to the school gymnasium asking if I needed help or stay after school to help clean up. A month before the trip, I began to feel better and hopeful that I could enjoy this adventure with my girls. Exactly two weeks before the trip, I felt really ill one night. My health quickly spiraled out of control. I was rushed to the hospital and given medication which did not stop my violent regurgitation. To spare the horrible details, I could not eat for 5 days, not even water. The pain was incredible and it looked like I would not be able to make it to Florida. However, the weekend before the trip I was discharged and given clearance to fly. I decided to surprise my girls at school which could be seen in the video taken by another teacher. My illness definitely brought out the best in my girls. The story of my girls goes more in depth; gang violence, arrests, molestation, rape, “cutting” where I have to constantly check girls for small cuts on their arms, suicidal tendencies, runaways, etc. For my girls, softball has become a way of life, a means to escape the harsh reality of their circumstances and simply enjoy being a teen.

I am currently searching for those who are able to support the Lady Tigers in our efforts in returning to Florida State University in 2016. Any help will be greatly appreciated. We are a girls’ softball team from a Title 1 middle school located in the South Bronx, NY. Thank you for taking the time in reading this.

Thank you for taking the time in reading this.

sadley after being a long time supporter of Disney for many years with my children and now grandchildren, we will be stopping due to the companies support of planned parenthood. Many of of our healthcare meetings for physicians, CRNAs etc are booked their each year. As leaders in our communities and with our healthcare organizations we are asking them not to continue to book meetings/conferences at walt disney due to again the support of planned parenthood. I always believed that disney supported healthy environments for children, I am sadly mistaken

To Whom It May Concern:

I live a few doors down from the Disney Animation Studio — off Buena Vista — and just down the street from the Disney-owned homes that run along Keystone.

Everyday, as I walk down Keystone, I see more and more take-out food trash: bags, food containers, soft drink cups, cans, and bottles tossed into the ivy directly across the street from the very same Disney-owned homes on Keystone. I also see cigarette butts littering the street. Everyday, I clean up after your groundsmen/landscapers and, quiet frankly, I’m tired of it. It’s disrespectful to your neighbors who also live here. Please have a little chat with your landscaping staff — or whomever you contract with.

I wanted to attach a video of the trash that I came across on tonight’s walk but am unable to in this forum. (This morning I had already picked up several bags, cups, and cigarette butts.)

Thanks for your time

It breaks my heart to write this because I live in Orlando and I benefit from Disney’s success. We don’t have a state income tax because of our thriving tourist industry for which we have Disney to thank. Unfortunately the truth must be told about the dark side of Disney.

According to Bloomberg1 Disney, headed by CEO Bob Iger, owns a 50% stake in A&E Networks, headed by CEO Nancy Dubuc. Earlier this year, The Disney owned A&E network aired a show “Neighbors with Benefits” where couples, including couples with children, from a small town in Ohio, were hired to openly engaged in adultery and recruit other couples to have sex with them. Disney owned A&E made nine episodes but the show was cancelled after the second episode was aired. During one of the episodes the male ringleader said to his friends, “Use her and abuse her” referring to his wife. During the last episode that was aired, the female ringleader broke down in tears saying “It’s hardest on the kids”. We can only speculate as to the permanent psychological damage the children suffered

Unrepentant, a new show called “The Seven Year Switch” aired July 7th. Married couples are split up and provided with someone to commit adultery with for two weeks. This is supposed to help their marriages. The trailer shows panic stricken couples proclaiming their love for each other as they leave in a limousine to commit adultery with a stranger provided by the Disney owned A&E network. One can only speculate what psychobabble was fed to these couples by A&E to make them believe that committing adultery would help their marriages.

I contacted the two advertisers that appeared on the trailer. Amazon.com, and AARP. I am happy to report that both must have pulled their adds because their adds were not present on the first episode. What companies would want to be associated with such depravity and sexual exploitation of fellow human beings? Here are the companies who ran adds during the first episode;

DeVry University 1-866-338-7934
Sears 1800 549 4505
CRUZAN Rum 1-202-962-0551

IBEW – Electricians Union (407) 374-0779
Frontline Plus 1.800.660.1842
Schick 1.800.742.8377

Since A&E is 50% owned by Disney, it is hard to believe this depraved offensive programming rated suitable for minors and shown in early afternoon could have happened without Bob Iger giving the green light. Give Bob a call and let him know what you think.
Disney owns 50% of A&E 1 818-560-1000
Walt Disney
Mr Robert Iger CEO
Email robert.a.iger@disney.com
Telephone 818-560-1000

Then join One Million Moms, The National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCSE), and The Parent Television Council. These organizations have millions of members between them and fight to protect children from pornography.

Thanks for telling me about those shows! They sound interesting and I will be sure to check it out.

Will be sure to buy some more CRUZAN Rum and Craftsmen tools to help ensure these programs can stay on the air.

Thanks Again!!

I’m coming down in December and wanted to see if the Disney Travel Agent could find me a free dining deal for the week my sister and I arrive. Your Cast Member went above and beyond!!! Her name is Thelma Louise…She is a very valuable asset for your business!!! Not many people like to leave nice things but…..I am! I’m not sure if many appreciate your Cast Members but I do very much! Thelma Louise looked at every angle she could think of to try and help me out. My sister and I don’t have alot of money and I had hopes of the free dining being at the time frame we were going to visit. It didn’t work out to be. You had a 2 week frame in Dec. that didn’t have the dining. I called and the WONDERFUL Thelma Louise did her best. Thank you for hiring her!!! She had hopes of having “Magic” that she could send my way. Not today. She did send “Magic”….she has the magic of kindness!!!! Thought you should know of your lovely Cast Member~Miss Thelma Louise. Thanks Much!

My whole family is boycotting Disney. It is disgraceful that you hired Indian workers to replace American workers. Makes me sick.


Gloria snyder October 5, 2015 at 11:49 pm

My family and I feel the same way Disney you are as an American as Russia. How dare you try to give away American jobs all in the name of money you dirty filthy capitalist. You’re not about families and happiness and joy. You guys are fakers and your CEO Robert. You are affiliated with putting out dirty filthy trash on your A&E. I will not associate myself with any Disney products Disney Channels or anything put out by you people making money and capitalizing on our families and our children you dirty swine you are what the Bible describes as the Antichrist.

Kerry Bryce June 7, 2015 at 12:52 pm

Laying off American (tech) workers? You’ll never get another dime from me – regarding any Disney theme park or Disney product. Why don’t you move your theme parks to India – you’re not wanted here. Adios Disney.


Marie Titolo June 5, 2015 at 10:46 am

I am a shareholder and am appalled by your recent hiring practices. My goodness, lay off people who have been devoted to Disney and replace them with foreigners here on visas. You are contributing to the United States not being the country it used to be. We need to keep jobs here in the USA. Let’s worry about our citizens first and foremost.
The next annual meeting I plan to vote this present Board out!!!!!


Dee Green June 4, 2015 at 3:03 pm

I am so appalled over the Disney news as of today June 4th. In florida they have laid off many workers only to give their jobs to Indian workers from India! Not only that but they get to come and stay with a visa and the workers who have been fired have to train the indians their job. How humiliating is that! Unbelievable to think Disney of all people.If Walt would be here today he would be very disappointed.I have seen many families over the last 2 years lose their jobs to India, China, Philippines and many more countries. Their trying to say that they are better skilled if that was the case then why do they have to be trained for almost a year and still do not know what the heck they are doing because I deal with them all the time and they never do anything right. We all know that it is based on getting out of taxes, lower wages, and not having to supply health insurance. Our government has really screwed up this country.The United States is no longer a producing country.We have fallen far below. And it is only going to get worse. Everyone better start waking up because you may be next. And the sad part is all the people that lost their jobs over the last couple of years still do not have a job.What about children! Families can’t even support them with no job. The United States every year implements the teaching of history in schools on all types of areas, one being slavery. I do not know why it is taught because the US replay their actions over and over, They are okaying slavery in all of these countries. The government needs to bring back the jobs to the United States and start worrying about its own people!

Dear Disney, I am a wife and mother of two. My family and I have visited Disney atleast 5 times. I can honestly say that each visit has been special and unique in its own way. My first visit is the one I share every chance that I get. I am writing today because I thought you should know…whenever anyone asks me if we’ve every been and how’s the disney experience…my reply is and has always been…a magical place where hopes and dreams really come true. My first visit to disney I lost my eyeglasses on mickeys fantasia, we looked and looked, even the ride assistants helped, but because of the dark, literally, we couldn’t see. The attendant told me they would recheck later and for me to check back with lost and found. Well needless to say I was devasted, I am pretty much blind without my glasses. My husband advised me to just “let it go” and enjoy our vacation, and to not let it ruin our trip…well at the end of the night, about 11 hours later, after the fireworks display, we decided to check with lost and found…feeling like it was a waste of time, And that it would only upset me again, I reluctantly went in. I am pleased to say that I came out of the lost and found not just with “my glasses,” but with joy and an overwhelming feeling of happiness and hope. As I left crying and overwhelmed with emotion, listening to the disney theme music…I said to my husband…”this is truly a magical place.” Not just because of my found glasses, but because of the promise of that worker…”I will do my best to find your glasses.”This is the story that I share over and over with as many people as I can.


Rheannon April 24, 2015 at 8:44 pm

To Whom it May Concerns:
I do not even know where to begin, but THIS was not the “Magical” vacation we were promised/expecting! I have stayed at nicer Red roof/Budget Inns!!!!
All the prep/excitement that goes into planning a vacation was destroyed by this hotel multiple times! I have been saving for YEARS to take my son to Disney World. This was one of the worst experiences we have ever had to deal with!
I am not a fancy person by any means, which is why the value resort appealed to me, traveling with a little boy…
I promise you this is the absolute WORST hotel EVER and I’ve stayed at over a thousand, traveling for work so often.
-The staff was RUDE…. from the front desk, to cafe workers; to housekeeping; to lifeguards…. everyone was downright nasty!
-The pools were constantly closed due to maintenance issues or kids pooping in the pool. All my son could talk about was swimming and watching a movie. That didn’t happen once in over a week!
-They had 2 people cashing people out at the cafe, therefore…. By the time you even got through the line, your food was cold or your child dropped it on the floor. I just cannot get over how rude these people were. We seemed to be a “bother!” Not one person ever said “Hi” or “How was your day?” God forbid you show up 5-10 min prior to close! They treat you even worse!!! We had a man actually yell at my special needs son because he couldn’t make up his mind on what flavor of ice cream to choose! Thanks for making him cry on this “Magical” vacation!
-The WiFi …. Now that is a joke…. Couldn’t hardly even update your Disney Plans because the internet was “Weak/No Connection!”
-The ground would have been more comfortable than those awful, nasty, stained up beds! The pillows were like rocks. The sheets were hard and noisy…. After a long day in Disney…. You need a good night’s sleep…. NOT HERE. The noise was also out of control! Not just from other guests, but the rooms are paper thin. You can hear water running in other rooms, toilets, showers, people sneezing, not to mention the thing some adults do! My God…. THEN the WORKERS! Ahhhh…. Replacing doors until 1:30am, power washing and yard maintenance starts at 7-8am every single day! That also includes hearing them all stand around and yell over the machines they have running!
-The rooms were DISGUSTING!!!! I spent an hour cleaning our 1st room… it was never vacuumed, tub wasn’t clean, no toilet paper, bed was not made well, there was hair all over the toilet and sink…. GROSS…. Oh it gets better!!! There were “unknown” bugs in our room that would crawl all over everything and laid eggs all around the toilet, I didn’t know and sat on them in the middle of the night. Lets just say popping eggs with your bottom at 4am doesn’t make for a good start to the day. I called the front desk and was placed on hold for more than 15 min before I gave up. I went to the desk later and it took them 2 hours to switch our room…. Did I mention NO ONE helped!!???
-Security is rude, rude, rude as well. My son said “hi” to one and the security guard told him “Get to your room; you’re too young to be out after 10pm!” Dear Lord… Hello, I’m his mother holding his hand walking that way!
-We had a life guard grab my son for throwing a ball near the pool….
There is so many awful things that happened…. I was not the only guest with these complaints either. Even the managers agreed there are problems here… yet, not one offered the proper accommodations or credits for all these problems and pretty much ruining this “Magical” Vacation!!!

This is just a few of the problems we were faced with. Not to mention the rash both my son and I still have, the bugs that found their way into our suitcases, therefore having to wash EVERYTHING twice, clean my entire house…. THIS is just awful. I would have never expected this experience from Disney. I am so sad, have cried multiple times. This is just not the memory I was hoping to capture for my son and I. He has been through so much with having special needs and losing his dad a couple years ago. I tried so hard to have this “Magical” experience that is advertised and was not just let down and disappointed, but blatantly disrespected and was treated like dirt.
I just want you to know…feel free to contact me if you would like more information.
I’m not sure at this point though, if anyone at Disney really cares.

Disneyland (DLR) security is ‘OUT OF CONTROL’. Problems identified in 2013 NOT RESOLVED, and Resolutions implemented by Guest Relations Resolution Team are IGNORED by DLR Security. Long Term problem now escalated to Robert Iger’s Office.

HAS ANYONE ELSE HAD PROBLEMS WITH DLR SECURITY DEPARTMENT… Harassment? Notify Corporate so the Magic does not go out!


Sharon and Esther Mensah April 9, 2015 at 10:01 am

Dear Disney,

Lately your shows have not been satisfying the interest of older kids preferably ages 11 to16. Even though it is not your targeted age group we would still like to watch Disney Channel, but there’s nothing really appealing to our age group on Disney Channel anymore. I am asking if you could make a Teen Disney channel. Disney channel just for teens that includes new shows or even old shows such as That’s so Raven, Hannah Montana, and Wizards of Waverly Place. All the time I hear in the hallways of our middle school that they miss shows like Proud Family or Cory in the House in other words Old Disney. Shows like that made us laugh and enjoy TV. This could also be a boost to your ratings. I am sure that we are not the only people asking for this and hopefully you will take our ideas into consideration. Please email us back if you think that this is a good idea. Thank you.
