Dormant or Shuttered Disney businesses

The following companies are subsidiaries of Disney that either are no longer active or have been absorbed into another part of the company.

  • Arena Football League - ESPN bought a minority share of the league in December 2006; the league ceased operations in July 2009. The AFL was revived in 2010, but is a separate legal entity from the original, with no Disney ownership.
  • Cal Publishing — Cal Publishing was a subsidiary created by Disney to acquire the assets of CrossGen. After the acquisition, both companies were folded into Disney Publishing Worldwide. Disney subsidiary Marvel Comics has since announced that it will revive CrossGen as an imprint.
  • Hollywood Basic — A sub-label of Hollywood Records that released rap music (including music by DJ Shadow and Organized Konfusion). The label was discontinued in the mid 1990s.
  • Miramax Zoe — A division of Miramax Films (when Disney used to own Miramax before they sold it to Filmyard Holdings, LLC) and Buena Vista International that was created to acquire and release French films in the U.S. The label has not been used since Amélie (2001).
  • ABC Films — A division of ABC, Inc. that distributed first-run and off-network TV programming to television stations and networks worldwide. Majority of the backlog is currently controlled by CBS Television Studios through Spelling Entertainment Group.
  • ABC Pictures Corp. / ABC Motion Pictures — A division of ABC, Inc. that produced and distributed a number of films theatrically. The division became inactive before the acquisition of Capital Cities/ABC by Disney, but its library was brought into Disney through the acquisition. In 2003, Buena Vista Home Entertainment licensed most of the ABC theatrical titles out to MGM for home entertainment distribution. That deal expired in 2008 and the distribution rights have transferred back to Disney.
  • ABC Circle Films / ABC Productions — A division of ABC, Inc. that produced both film and television series for ABC. Upon the acquisition by Disney, ABC Circle Films and its library were absorbed into ABC Studios (at the time, Touchstone Television).
  • ABC Kids / Replaced by Litton's Weekend Adventure
  • Club Disney - A creation of Disney Regional Entertainment, Club Disney had 5 locations built in the U.S. All 5 locations were closed in November 1999.
  • DIC Entertainment - Animation studio acquired in the Capital Cities/ABC purchase in 1996. Operated independently from other Disney subsidiaries due to it being a Limited Partnership. Was sold back to it's original owner in 2000.
  • Discovery Island - Part of the Walt Disney World, Discovery Island offered a look at wildlife from its opening in 1974 until its close in 1999.
  • Disney Auctions
  • Disney Magazine - A magazine publication that gave die-hard Disney fans an inside look at the company. This title was in publication from December 1965 until April 2005. A similar online magazine called the Disney Insider was said to take its place.

  • Starwave - Starwave was merged with Infoseek and acquired by Disney in 1998 to form GO Network. Starwave no longer operates as a stand alone business. The label was recently resurrected to form Disney's Starwave Mobile which licenses content from third party companies for cell phone content.
