  • 19. Conclusion • As the company grew, Disney diversified production beyond cartoons and animated movies. Treasure Island, released in 1950, was the studio’s first live-action film, and the company formed Buena Vista Distribution a few years later. With its own in-house distribution company, Disney could continue to churn out movies while significantly saving on distribution costs. Live-action hits such as Swiss Family Robinson in 1960 and Mary Poppins in 1964 followed. Disney's TV debut came around the same time as Treasure Island, with the special One Hour in Wonderland. The popular Mickey Mouse Club debuted as a TV series in 1955. • But it was another TV program that began in 1954, called Disneyland, that showed Walt Disney had even bigger plans for the company. A few years earlier, Disney established WED Enterprises as a separate company and began drawing up plans for Disneyland, a giant theme park. Because the park was technically part of a separate corporation, Disney was able to develop it in secret, worrying about how shareholders would react. Disneyland opened in 1955 as a theme park unlike any other the world had seen.
  • 20. • Disney employed a unique strategy to make the theme park quickly successful. He solicited several corporate sponsorships to subsidize costs, and outsourced food and merchandise within the park. Once Disneyland was earning revenue, the company repurchased those rights and kept the revenue internally. Plans for a second park, which ultimately became Walt Disney World, began with the acquisition of land in Florida in the 1960s. This second park would contain Disney's vision of what the future urban community would look like; he called it the "Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow", now commonly known as Epcot Center.
