Furthermore, the Walt Disney Company has approximately 175,000 employees and cast members, proving how extraordinary this company is!
Although, the exact numbers of employees or offices open in the world are uncountable since unlike many other companies, Disney has so much to offer like theme parks, cruise lines, shops, movies etc. This impacts numbers greatly as for example theme parks require more offices needing more employees. Seeing previous patterns it is evident that they will only continue rising.
In 1923, Walt Disney had faced bankruptcy of his previous firm Laugh-O-Gram Films. Following this, Walt Disney decided to move to Hollywood and join hands with his brother Roy Disney. With plans to distribute a whole series of Alice Comedies, Margaret J Winkler, a film distributor had soon made Disney his production partner. Eventually, Walt and his brother Roy Disney formed Disney Brothers Cartoon Studio. This lead to many more animated films being released. The studio name later changed to Walt Disney Studio.
From 1926 to 1928, Disney created the famous characters Oswald the Lucky Rabbit followed by Mickey Mouse!
Disney continued producing various characters leading up to them beginning the Silly Symphonies series with Columbia Pictures.
On December 16, the Walt Disney Studios partnership was reorganized as a corporation with the name of Walt Disney Productions, Limited with a merchandising division, Walt Disney Enterprises, and two subsidiaries, Disney Film Recording Company, Limited and Liled Realty and Investment Company for real estate holding.
Walt Disney and his wife held 60% (6,000 shares) and Roy owned 40% of WD Productions.
Advantages of a Corporation
Since, corporations are considered a separate legal entity, the shareholders have limited liability for the corporation's debts. Moreover, in the case of having to satisfy corporate debts or liabilities, the personal assets of shareholders would not be at risk
For investors, corporations are much more stable places to put their money and likely for it to return as well, since corporations are everlasting. Whether the shareholders, managers etc come and go, the business exists without an end. This is because corporations have legal entity; legal standing in the eyes of law.
Disadvantages of a Corporation
More Expensive to Form and Run
More Legal Formality
There are several government fees that must be paid such as franchise tax. There is also double taxing in corporations. As in, when the company makes a profit they are taxed and again when dividends are paid to shareholders.
Corporations are regulated by federal, state being legal entity. As a result there is increased paperwork and additional record keeping burdens associated.

Disney Stock Prices over a Year
The graph clearly represents the changes occurring in the price, sometimes rising and sometimes dropping. Overall, observing the data extending over the course of twelve months, the price has increased greatly. In the beginning of the data presented, during the second half of March 2013, the price ranged between 55 to the high 50s. At year later, at present time the price range is around 80 to 83. This clearly identifies the rise in prices over twelve months. Although, between there came some points where one may have suffered loss by buying a stock. For example starting at the beginning of August 2013, prices continuously dropped, up until mid September 2013. This is why looking at the previous stock history is necessary before purchasing a stock. Sometimes, like in the start of the month February 2014, prices began rising by the day. At the present time of mid March, it seems as if prices are decreasing rather than continuing the trend of rising prices. After reaching such a high point it is a possibility that stock prices come down, but that is not always the case!

Disney has been involved in several lawsuits varying from bad service, to injuries, to kidnapping and even death. In fact, it has been stated that today the most kidnappings occur in Walt Disney World, but as usual the company denies it. One case that occurred was when a young girl fell off a boat from the ride "Its a Small World" and faced several injuries like a broken arm, broken hip and collapsed lung. Though they never filed lawsuit. From 2005-2006 19 injuries and 4 deaths occurred. Those filing lawsuits usually won as the mistake would be on behalf of Disney. But the Company always tries its hardest to cover it.
