Disney’s sturdy movie business and solid performance of its Parks & Resorts division continues to act as catalysts. This is quite evident from the company’s upbeat performance in the third quarter of fiscal 2016. The success of movies also mean healthy business for its Consumer Products division as demand for the merchandise associated with successful movies usually skyrockets, as seen in case of Frozen. Further, Disney is also in the process of rolling out more themed attractions in parks and resorts. Despite these favorable factors, waning subscriber count at ESPN poses a concern.
