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.

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.

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.

But, I Do Get Up Set When I Have To Listen To Other Language, When Getting On And Off Rides. This Is The U.S.A. ! If I Would Go To Other Country With Disney Parks I Would Expect To Hear There Language ! This Year At Universal Studio I Only Heard English On And Off The Rides ! That’s The Way It Should Be ! Now At $105.+Tax For Disney World And The Other Parks $97.+Tax.You Sure Don’t Need To Bring People From India To Work And Fire People You Have Used All These Years ! I Know Epcot Has Had People From Around The World Working In There Own Country And That’s Fine. But To Bring Who Knows What From India, Really, Upsets Me ! Now I Don’t Feel Very Safe In Your Parks ! I Hope You Do Better Then Homeland Security To Screen Them. You Need To Hirer These People All Back You Fired, They Helped Disney Co. Grow ! If This Is How Disney’s Co.

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.

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!!!!!

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.

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!

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.
From: Sharon and Esther Mensah
