I grew up faithfully watching the Mickey Mouse Club on our black & white TV and singing along with the opening and closing songs. I knew all the Mouseketeers by name and probably had a crush on the girl Mouseketeers like Annette Funicello. On Sunday nights my family watched Disney’s Wonderful World of Color, although I never saw it in color. Color TV wouldn’t be something my family had until I was in high school. There wasn’t a Disney World in Florida back then—just a Disneyland in California, and I dreamed that someday I’d get to go there. The Disney brand was magic and Walt Disney was like everyone’s favorite uncle who was rich and had all the cool stuff. The Disney movies were dependably wholesome, family-friendly, and had a moral lesson embedded in the plot. Parents knew that their kids could see a Disney film and be entertained without being embarrassed or indoctrinated.
Just a few years back, we took our entire family to Disney World. Sure, it was mostly about taking the grandkids there and making sure they were indulged to the hilt.
But the wonderful family-friendly company that Walt Disney founded is gone, replaced by creepy corporate executives who have lost their minds and will likely lose a lot of their customers. They certainly have lost me.
Disney executives have outright lied about the Florida legislation that prohibits government schools from teaching sexual content to pre-schoolers and young elementary children. What person in his or her right mind want 4 year old children to be taught about homosexuality, transgenderism, and sexual expression? Disney execs repeated the utterly debunked lie that the bill was a “Don’t Say Gay” bill. Such language was nowhere in the bill. But it gets worse. In a conference call, other Disney leaders expressed the goal that in future Disney movies, at least half of all the characters in a film with be gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, transgender, queer, or something other than heterosexual.
And theme parks will be forbidden to say “hello boys and girls” and instead will be required to say “welcome dreamers and friends.” And no more will little girls be called princess when they show up in a gown. I guess boys could be a princess under the new perverted Disney code. Who knows?
This is so outrageous it’s hard to believe that the Disney company has become such a purveyor of soft-porn and woke-ism so that instead of entertaining children with fantasy and magic, Disney’s new model is sexual fantasy, outright betrayal and rejection of traditional values of marriage and gender, and instead of moral neutrality, Disney has opted for immoral advocacy.
Will their remake of Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs be called The Nymphomaniac and the 7 Male Prostitutes? Will Lady and the Tramp be re-named “The Lesbian and the Housing Challenged Non-gendered Animal?” Will Beauty and the Beast be renamed “The Bi-Sexual and the Child Predator?” And Swiss Family Robinson will now be about a dysfunctional family that becomes homeless and lives in a local park after wrecking their VW hippie van.
I simply refuse to believe that this dishonesty and insanity from Disney represents what American parents and grandparents want to purchase for their children. But the only way to push back against this filth is to find other products and places when you purchase entertainment for your family.
This is no longer about party politics. A clear majority of Florida Democrats support the law prohibiting schools from indoctrinating 4 and 5 year old children about various sexual agendas that are probably NOT the agendas of parents. I guess the small number of people supporting the perverted version of a public school will next want to trade in yellow school buses for white, windowless utility vans typically called “kidnapper vans” since that is pretty much the direction Disney is taking with your children.
I am old enough to remember when parents would say, “Sure, you can watch that movie. It’s a Disney movie so it will be safe.” Not anymore! This ain’t kid’s stuff. And I for one don’t want to enrich the people that have destroyed the Magic Kingdom and turned it into the Perverted Palace. Mickey shouldn’t be the face of Disney anymore. The Disney character most representative of the company would be GOOFY!

Walt Disney would roll over in his grave if he knew what has been and is still being done in his name! Totally trashed and so unfair to Walt!

Disney has gotten too Politically Correct...they renamed their Snow White and 7 Dwarfs ride to Snow White and the seven genders and then they've changed Peter Pan's name to Peter Pan-sexual ...

Yeah long gone and insanity has taken it's place. Along with it everything Walt stood for is trashed with debauchery and gross immorality. Remind you of Sodom and Gomorrah? God can change it and I want that very much and soon. I went to Disneyland on my honeymoon. won't say when that was but? Ha, ha!

Your alternative families can use to entertain and educate your children and grandchildren would be Sight and Sound in Lancaster, PA which are plays based on the Bible which are amazing for the whole family. Also the Ark in KY. I believe it is Williamson, KY.

Every thing you wrote is SO WELL SAID AND RIGHT ON ???? As a 90 year old, I am ashamed at how the beloved Disney we grew up with has now become WOKE (whatever that means?) and totally distasteful, but they are not alone. Unfortunately I can see our world totally destroying itself. I, at least, live in Arkansas and know your daughter, Sarah, will do everything in her power to correct all of the horrors facing "real family values" today.

Disney disappointed my family in the middle 80’s. We were subscribed to the Disney channel and came home from church on a Sunday afternoon. I don’t remember the movie but it had a very bad word in it. We canceled the Disney channel immediately. I think the CEO at that time was Eisner.

It is sad to see what is happening to Disney. I grew up going to Disney World every summer when my family was down there visiting relatives -- before Disney World was built, I would tell my friends that I was going to visit relatives in Orlando, and they asked where that was -- and watching the show on Sunday nights. I watched all the classic princess movies, and was glad to see new movies like "The Little Mermaid" and "Beauty and the Beast" and went back to Disney World many times as an adult. But once they started putting social conscience messages in their new movies and changing old movies -- like when they remade "Pete's Dragon" with an environmental theme -- we stopped watching Disney movies and stopped going to the parks.

You are very generous. I would say the new face of Disney should be EVIL personified! What a crime it is to have turned the clean wholesome fun entertainment Walt Disney created into something so shameful!
