0'>Walt Disney company history starts in 1923, when Walt Disney founded it. Now, Walt Disney Co has grown to become one of the biggest media conglomerates in the world. First founded as a cartoon studio, Disney is no longer simply known as a movie and television production studio. Now, with its many theme parks and owned networks, Disney has grown into an international family entertainment company.

While the cartoon character Mickey Mouse was first introduced in 1928, the Disney Studio wouldn’t move to Burbank, CA (which is where the headquarters are still located) until 1940. It would take Disney another 10 years until it produced its very first live-action film in 1950, which was Treasure Island. In 1950 Disney also launched its first television show, One Hour in Wonderland. Finally, Disneyland (the first of Disney’s many theme parks) would open in 1955.
