What Are We?

At first glance 360 Degrees of Disney may look like many other Disney fan websites. But our mission and what we offer is very different. The focus of this website is looking at Disney's decisions in one division and seeing how they affect the others.

 

In order to understand the full repercussions on the company of any given decision, we must understand each individual division. So we do have pages for every division.

 

While we will certainly fill you in on the latest Disney news and, without question, we will be at the parks frequently these points will not be the main focus of this site. If you are looking for updates from the parks, those can largely be found on our social media channels.

 

Now you may be wondering what my standing is to talk about The Walt Disney Company from this perspective. Well for starters Disney has been a major part of my life for as long as I can remember. I have grown up in Florida and trips to Walt Disney world have been frequent since birth. As I have grown older I have traveled to all the parks, sailed on all four Disney cruise ships, visited every Disney resort hotel, been to the Walt Disney Studios, and four D23 Expos. Countless hours have been spent enjoying Disney films, television and video games and listening to Disney music.

 

Yet I think I have been fortunate as this Disney loving fan experience has been aided by the perspective I‘ve gained discussing Disney with my father. My Dad is an entrepreneur, a business person, an editor, writer, speaker and analyst—indeed many Disney cast members on the food of things subscribe to his magazines and websites and attend his events. Many hours of discussion with him has often provided me with insight as to how and why decisions are made in a business.

 

All too often people who don’t understand business will leap to the conclusion that a given decision made by Disney executives is motivated by hatred of the fans. One thing we are trying to remind people of is that Disney and its executives do not make decisions because they hate you or they want to hurt the fans or because they hate the classics of Disney. There are often complicated motivations behind each decision and we hope to explore those motivations and their ramifications on this website.

 

A simple insight: most of the people who read fan websites and attend multiple Disney events are Disney enthusiasts, yet most of the decisions by Disney executives are designed to maximize happiness for the more casual consumer.

 

So, typically, all the decisions made by Disney executives have a reasoning behind them. Yet just because these decisions can be explained does not mean that the decision made was an optimal one. There may well be a better alternative route that Disney executives could take. We will use this website to analyze the decisions made by Disney executives and then highlight and assess alternative decisions that could be more productive. Every Disney fansite has its place and we enjoy many of them. Yet, we believe that this analytical approach is very different, indeed unique in the many sites that make up the Disney ecosystem.

 

Welcome to 360 Degrees of Disney and we hope to see you on the site again real soon!
