What does the Disney Org Chart look like in 2023?

The company has a complicated organizational structure, with different divisions and subsidiaries. The five main divisions are Media Networks; Parks, Experiences, and Products; Studio Entertainment; Consumer Products; and Interactive Media.

2023 Disney 5 Business Divisions
2023 Disney Business Division - Media Networks
2023 Disney Business Division - Parks, Experiences, & Products
2023 Disney Business Division - Studio Entertainment
2023 Disney Business Division - Consumer Products
2023 Disney Business Division - Interactive Media

What is Disney's most profitable business segment?

Disney's Parks, Experiences, and Products proves to be the most profitable of its five segments. Last year, the "Happiest Place on Earth" produced $7.4 billion in revenue, a welcomed increase from $4.3 billion the prior year. Following the pandemic and a resulting hiatus, the parks saw a return of guests who were willing to spend more money. Strategically speaking, Disney increased the prices at the park. The revenue reported also comes after the company ceased business operations in Russia in response to the country's war on Ukraine.

Disney's Interactive Media division is considered its secondary income stream, with a trio of streaming services including Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+. At the end of 2022, Disney reported $23.51 billion in revenue. While there was a drop in subscribers, Disney continues to outperform competitors with its subscriber numbers.

Does Disney have a global presence?

Disney is one of the world's largest media and entertainment companies, with a global presence spanning across multiple industries, including theme parks, film and television production, consumer products, and more. The company's reach extends to virtually every corner of the globe, with a strong presence in North America, Europe, Asia, and Latin America.

Disney's theme parks are among its most recognizable assets, with world-renowned locations such as Disneyland and Disney World in the United States, Tokyo Disneyland and Hong Kong Disneyland in Asia, and Disneyland Paris in Europe. These parks attract millions of visitors each year and are major drivers of tourism in their respective regions.

Where can I find a SWOT analysis on Disney?

Here is an analysis of Disney's Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats in 2023:


  • Brand Recognition: Disney is a well-known brand and has long been synonymous with producing high-quality entertainment content.
  • Diversified Business Portfolio: With its five business divisions, the company is able to mitigate risk and provide stability.
  • Stellar Financial Position: Disney has consistently generated robust revenue and profit, enabling it to maintain a strong balance sheet.
  • Intellectual Property Portfolio: With valuable franchises such as Marvel, Star Wars, and Pixar, Disney has a leg up on the competition in the entertainment industry.
  • Global Presence: Disney operates in many countries worldwide, which provides geographic diversification.


  • Key Franchise Dependency: Although Disney has a large and diversified portfolio, it relies heavily on a few key franchises, such as Marvel and Star Wars. If these franchises ever decline in popularity, then this would be detrimental to Disney.
  • High Capital Expenditures: Maintenance and expansion of Disney's theme parks and resorts require significant capital, which could strain the company's finances.
  • Economic Vulnerability: Disney's business segments, particularly its parks and resorts, are sensitive to economic cycles and could suffer during periods of economic recession. For example, during the COVID-19 pandemic, The New York Times reported that Disney laid off 28,000 employees in the U.S. alone.


  • International Market Expansion: Disney has opportunities to expand its presence in emerging markets, particularly in Asia.
  • Additional Streaming Services: The Disney+ streaming service has been successful. The company could expand this service globally and/or develop new streaming services to generate additional revenue.
  • New Technologies: By investing in new technologies, such as virtual reality and augmented reality, Disney could complement its theme park and entertainment experiences.
  • Product Portfolio Expansion: Particularly in the consumer products segment, Disney could leverage its intellectual property to create new and innovative products.


  • Competition: Disney faces competition from many other companies in the entertainment industry, particularly in the streaming media and consumer products segments.
  • Consumer Preference Shift: Particularly among younger generations (Millennials & Gen Z), changes in consumer preferences could lead to declining demand for Disney's products and services.
  • Regulatory Risks: Disney operates in a heavily regulated industry, and changes in laws and regulations could impact its business.
  • Cybersecurity Risks: Disney is vulnerable to cybersecurity risks, particularly with respect to its streaming services and consumer data.

What are Disney's 2023 strategic plans?

At the latest earnings call, Bob Iger announced his plans for Disney, “After a solid first quarter, we are embarking on a significant transformation, one that will maximize the potential of our world-class creative teams and our unparalleled brands and franchises. We believe the work we are doing to reshape our company around creativity, while reducing expenses, will lead to sustained growth and profitability for our streaming business, better position us to weather future disruption and global economic challenges and deliver value for our shareholders.”

Changes to Disney include:

  • Eliminating 7,000 jobs in an effort to reduce costs by $5.5 billion. This will be done in three rounds, the first of which began the week of March 27.
  • Reorganizing the company into three core business segments: Disney Entertainment; ESPN; and Disney Parks, Experiences, and Products. 
  • Dividends reinstated to shareholders by the end of 2023. These were suspended in the spring of 2020 at the onset of the pandemic.

Which division of the company will Disney's layoffs impact?

Disney's workforce layoffs will be companywide, impacting all three of its core business segments. Disney is not the first to take these drastic measures. In fact, the company is following suit of Warner Bros. Discovery and other media companies that are cutting employees and costs. Bob Iger recognizes there will be challenges as the company adjusts to these changes, and asks his non-impacted employees for their “continued understanding and collaboration during this time.”
