Its all about brand power as much as content. For my three boys (aged 4-11) and their older friends its all about Star Wars and the Marvel characters. Parents like them too! Star Wars nostalgia anyone? The movies and animated series drive the merchandising and the theme parks. Couldn't be a wider moat. Only issue I see is ability to keep the sports TV rights where they are not controllers of their own destiny to the same extent. Nevertheless I think this is one of the best growth stories among large caps. Long term winner even at current valuation.

Content is KING! Also kids know how to make there parents spend money. You don't want to disappoint. I was behind a mother and daughter in line at the airport and she told me that she took her to see Frozen 7 times in theaters. She is not the only 3 year old that paid to see it multiply times.

Disney is a giant with its fingers in all the right areas ie Theme Parks, movie studio, rights to Star Wars, and not let us forget the Mouse and all his friends. This is a money machine that keeps on giving.

Another one of my favorites! Disney is a company that has been around for generations and is considered an American Icon/trademark which will likely remain strong and in existence long after our lifetime.

I see the company as a perfect purchase not only for well-established or new investors but as a gift for a child's portfolio/starter stock as it may be almost guaranteed to be highly profitable overtime.

The company owns ESPN which its a major revenue source and has made strategic and highly successful acquisitions including Marvel and Pixar among others.

Disney is recognized internationally and its resort locations can be found in California, Florida, Paris and Japan. For those dividend lovers-- the company currently pays a yield of 1.00% or 0.86 cents a share.

Despites some bumps on the road and possible competition from cable providers for the ESPN division; I am still very well bullish on DIS and see it beating the S&P over the next several years and beyond.

with Frozen being talked about all the time and kids whailing to their parents for Anna and Elsa dolls, it's hard to not add this stock plus with the star wars movie coming, it's just another reason!!!

Excellent management, ESPN's earnings not adequately represented in the stock price.

Look at all of the acquisitions, mergers, and deals involving ESPN and other parts of this company. Also, ESPN is bound to jump on the College Sports Market as many of the Conference media rights deals are coming up for renegotiation

Roll down your window at a stoplight and you're more likely than not to hear something from "Frozen" - and the upcoming Star Wars movies should be strong performers too. Disney looks good - I wouldn't bet against the mouse.

I love what Disney has in the works. There is no doubt that the Star Wars films will bring huge buckets of money to the Disney franchise.

In addition, their innovations on a wearable unit inside the theme parks wallet) has the potential to dramatically increase in-park spending. I would estimate that the average increase in spending could be as high as 20%. In addition, it is likely to decrease customer frustration an increase the overall customer experience. It should be a huge win.

There is no reason to think that Disney won't continue to capitalize on current franchise favorites such as Cars/Planes and innovate with more favorites.

Other lines just need to hold steady for Disney to pull away here.

This is a no-brainer decision as a cornerstone for any portfolio. Strong earnings across multiple sectors, constantly evolving to customer's wants/needs, and moving the industry needle with innovation. To top it off, it has the "It" factory that puts it on par with companies such as Nike, Starbucks, and Coca-Cola. Expect a 5-10% beat of its benchmark over the next 5-10 years.

Disney's future of profitability is a multi-pronged offense starting first with it's powerhouse of licensed brands being made into movies. Marvel has become the highest grossing franchise of all time, Star Wars will be a big hit even if the movies are somehow terrible (which, given Disney's ability to make incredible movies seems unlikely), and Pixar doesn't even seem to know what a bad movie is. Speaking of movies, have you seen Frozen? The answer is most likely yes, and if you've seen the lines for meeting Elsa at any of their theme parks you'll know just how big these movies can be. Speaking of theme parks, they've been knocking it out of the park too. Circling that analogy back around it leads me to my final point: ESPN. Does that one even need explaining?
