Company Overview

Disney Consumer Products (DCP) is more than the world’s largest licensor of consumer products, more than Princess dolls and Mickey Mouse t-shirts. It’s a culture of innovation, the place where the Princess and Fairies franchises were born, where the arch of Winnie-the-Pooh’s eyebrow is as carefully considered as the budget forecast, where cartoons become couture, and where The Disney Store is transcending the rules of retail by morphing into an “Imagination Park.” DCP makes comic books and toothbrushes and everyday things matter because Disney products not only tell a story, but they tell the consumer’s story, becoming an integral part of the consumer’s life. Disney Consumer Products is Disney Living.
