Full Answer

Walt Disney is one of the best-known brands in entertainment. Although many people associate Disney with theme parks, family films and toys, the company owns a number of well-differentiated brands that cater to diverse markets.

In addition to the ABC television and entertainment groups, Disney owns ESPN, the popular sports network. It also owns and operates resorts, that break away from the usual theme park fare, to offer outdoor adventure or immerse visitors in authentic Hawaiian culture. In addition, whereas Pixar, Walt Disney Animation Studios and Walt Disney Motion Pictures produce films geared toward children, the company's Touchstone brand targets a more mature audience. Disney Publishing breaks out of the fairytale mould with a group of writers that includes satirist Dave Barry and baseball legend Cal Ripken Jr.

Walt Disney’s business structure contains a number of moving parts that drive each other. Pixar film, for example, might spur the creation of products that the company sells directly to consumers through its Disney Stores and licenses to other retailers. The publishing division can launch a series of books based on the film’s themes and characters and parlay those books into digital products such as computer games. Moreover, each of these ventures can be used to promote other divisions.

    How did Walt Disney acquire the land for Disney World?

    A:

    Walt Disney was a famous man by the time he decided to develop an East Coast theme park, so he came up with a few different dummy investment companies that he used to purchase relatively cheap Florida swampland while keeping his identity a secret. Disney knew that the land he was looking at wasn't particularly valuable, but he also knew that his name was famous enough to encourage price gouging, making the use of a secret identity a prudent technique.
