The Walt Disney Company

The Walt Disney company was founded in 1923 by Walt and Roy Disney and was at that time known as the Disney Brothers Cartoon Studio.  Walt Disney Productions initially became established as a leader in the American animation industry before diversifying into live-action film, production, television and travel, then later into theatre, radio, publishing and online media.  The first Walt Disney World Resort opened in 1971.  Mickey Mouse is the official mascot of The Walt Disney Company.
