Looking for Interesting Disney Facts, Trivia and Stats? Look no further. Here are more than you will ever need to know!
It all started in 1923, when a bankrupt young animator moved out from Kansas City to Hollywood to join his brother to form a small cartoon studio. For as much of a visionary as he was known to be, never in his wildest dreams, could Walt Disney have imagined his new venture would become the international entertainment and media phenomenon it is today, bringing in tens of billions of dollars in revenue annually.
So just how big has Disney become after all these years? Here are over 500 of the more interesting Disney facts and statistics I was able to dig up recently. As this list has grown significantly in the year or so that I have been publishing it, I have begun to break out separate pages for groups of stats.

Please note that some of these Disney facts are easier to find than others, so some of these are based on news reports and not official company tallies. All stats are linked to their source unless it was sent to me directly from the company. No stat listed should be considered in making any type of investment decision. In other words: This is the best I can find, but I don’t guarantee anything.
