October 16, 1923: Founding of Walt Disney Company.

The world's largest audiovisual media conglomerate was founded by its creator Walt Disney and his brother, Roy Disney.

The original name of the company was Disney Brothers Cartoon Studios and in 1986, it changed its name to Walt Disney Company.

In 1928, the iconic Mickey Mouse character was created, and since his birth he has been the image of Disney. A relevant fact is that Walt Disney lent his voice for 16 years.

From 1986 to date, Disney has not stopped expanding its operations in industries such as television, film, theme parks, this empire owns Pixar, Marvel Entertainment, Lucasfilm, 20th Century Fox, ESPN and of course Disney Parks, Walt Disney Studios, Disney Music Group and Walt Disney Theatrical among others.

Countless technologies have been developed for Disney or at Disney.

From the creation of animated cartoons in black and white and later in color, to the use of Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Virtual Reality and most recently My Magicband, are some examples of how indispensable technology has been in the growth of Disney companies.

The Walt Disney Company's mission is to entertain, inform and inspire people around the world through the power of unparalleled storytelling that reflects the iconic brands, creative minds and innovative technologies that make us the world's leading entertainment company.
