Great backlog of Marvel characters to monopolize on and an expansion of the existing franchises, anytime you can add that with Animated characters that you don't have to pay looks like a potential for continued growth with the current direction

The fact that they own our childhood means they will outperform.

It's Mickey's world and we just live in it. Just wait until you see how much money the next Star Wars makes.

The mouse has legs as well as ears! They understand and capitalize on entertainment. When the bought Marvel I knew it would be huge additive to their kids movies. Marvel has a giant vault of ideas they can, and will, exploit. And that's only one segment of their business!

Too much diversity in revenue stream to slow down.

It's Disney. Most of what they do works, and they own what may be the only sure thing, Star Wars.

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.
