    • THE WALT DISNEY COMPANY LAUNCHES DISNEY'S FRIENDS FOR CHANGE Multiplatform Environmental Initiative on Disney Channel, Disney XD, Radio Disney and Disney.com Features Star-Studded Lineup of Disney's Young Talent Pledging Environmental Stewardship and Encouraging Other Kids to Do the Same Kids' Votes Determine How Disney Will Divide $1 Million in Donations Among Environmental Causes BURBANK, Calif. - May 14, 2009 - The Walt Disney Company today announced Disney's Friends for Change: Project Green (www.Disney.com), a multiplatform environmental initiative that will help kids help the planet. Disney stars Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, the Jonas Brothers and Demi Lovato are among the 29 young stars participating in outreach messages to debut on Disney Channel, Disney XD, Radio Disney and Disney.com. The Disney's Friends for Change: Project Green initiative invites young people to join together to help the environment across four key areas: climate, water, waste and habitats. Kids will learn practical ways to preserve the planet, track their collective impact and have the opportunity to vote on how $1 million in donations from Disney will be divided and invested in various environmental causes over the course of a year. "With Disney's Friends for Change, we're empowering kids to tap into the potential that lies within each and every one of them to make a difference," said Bob Iger, president, The Walt Disney Company. "Building on our recently announced environmental goals, this program highlights what is possible as we leverage Disney's reach to educate and inspire environmental stewardship in others." Beginning Friday, May 15, Disney Channel and Radio Disney will air the first in a yearlong series of on-air messages that will feature Disney Channel stars challenging kids to join them in registering and pledging environmental stewardship by making small changes in their daily actions that can positively impact the world around them. "We were inspired by the outpouring of enthusiasm from our family of talent to enact real environmental change by connecting with other kids, fans and friends on an entirely new level," said Rich Ross, president, Disney Channels Worldwide. "Friends for Change is about the power of friendship - when we all work together, anything is possible."
    • If 500,000 kids participate in Disney Friends for Change: Project Green events, together they can: Prevent approximately 100,000 tons of CO2 per year from polluting the air by adjusting their home thermostats. Save 5 million gallons of water in a single day by reducing shower times. Prevent 1 million pounds of waste from entering landfills by bringing trash-free lunches for a week. Create new habitats for local animals by planting 500,000 trees. Kids can pledge to join online at Disney.com where they'll commit to take simple everyday actions, such as turning off the lights and switching to reusable water bottles, and find out more about why these actions matter. Through the online community, kids will be able to invite friends to join, interact with one another and take pride in the results of their efforts as their collective impact on the planet is tallied and their votes determine the distribution of charitable contributions. Climate, water, waste and habitat will each be highlighted for three months, culminating in quarterly events where on a designated day, kids will be encouraged to act in unison on a single task such as adjusting home thermostats or reducing water usage. These events will be tracked online and on air as kids report back on their actions. Kids will also help determine how Disney will donate $1 million to environmental organizations over the course of a year to plant trees, preserve the rainforest, help endangered animals and support alternative energy among other causes.

    • THE WALT DISNEY COMPANY FOUNDATION GIVES $5 MILLION GIFT TO CHILDRENS HOSPITAL LOS ANGELES Gift is Largest Donation Ever Made to the Hospital by a Corporate Foundation; Continues Disney's Commitment to Brightening the Lives of Children When They Need it Most LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 30, 2006--The Walt Disney Company (NYSE:DIS) President and CEO Robert A. Iger today presented to the Childrens Hospital Los Angeles a $5 million donation from The Walt Disney Company Foundation. The funds will go toward the construction of the new hospital building, slated to open in 2009, enabling the hospital to further provide the best care for seriously ill and injured children. The gift, presented to Los Angeles Mayor Antonio R. Villaraigosa and Childrens Hospital Los Angeles President and CEO Richard D. Cordova, is the largest donation ever made to Childrens Hospital Los Angeles by a corporate foundation. "For all Disney does to brighten the lives of children around the world, helping to better the condition of seriously ill and injured kids is of considerable importance to us, especially here in our hometown of Los Angeles," said Iger. "All of us at Disney hope that this donation for the new inpatient building will help Childrens Hospital Los Angeles further enhance its already outstanding reputation for providing the best possible care to those in need." "I am pleased to accept this generous gift from Disney on behalf of the children of Los Angeles," said Mayor Villaraigosa. "Childrens Hospital Los Angeles has been dedicated to serving the children of this City for more than a century, and this donation will allow it to continue its important work. With this generous contribution, Disney sets an excellent example for other corporations to give generously to their communities." The Walt Disney Company is a longtime supporter of Childrens Hospital Los Angeles. In fact, the hospital's main entrance lobby, where today's gift was
    • presented, was designed by Disney Imagineers. Childrens Hospital Los Angeles, along with all children's hospitals and pediatric wings across the country, also receives a fun-filled shipment of Disney DVDs, toys, blankets and other merchandise each year. Child Life Specialists share these items with the children who receive treatment. In addition to the company's support of hospitals, The Walt Disney Company donated more than $190 million in cash and in-kind support to worthy charities around the world last year to help children and families in need. "The Walt Disney Company and Childrens Hospital share a commitment to the well-being of children, each in our own very special way, but it is natural that we work together to benefit the children and families of Los Angeles, and children everywhere," said Cordova. "We are enormously grateful to The Walt Disney Company Foundation for its support over the years, and particularly for its latest generosity for the new hospital building, truly a meaningful way to express its confidence in our physicians, nurses and other caregivers, our physician-scientists and researchers, and all who support the important work being done here." The new hospital building, one of Childrens Hospital Los Angeles' institutional priorities, will be a state-of-the-art 460,000-square-foot inpatient facility. When completed in 2009, it will be one of the finest medical and surgical environments for children in need of care in the United States, and it will be a model familycentered environment in which children and their families can heal and learn together. About The Walt Disney Company Foundation The Walt Disney Company Foundation was established in 1951 by Walt and Roy O. Disney to serve philanthropic needs and interests and does so today along with Disney Worldwide Outreach, part of The Walt Disney Company. The Walt Disney Company's outreach initiatives are dedicated to making the wishes of families and children a reality through public service initiatives, community outreach and volunteerism in the areas of compassion, learning, the arts and the environment.
    • DISNEY AWARDS FUNDS TO CRITICAL CONSERVATION PROJECTS AROUND THE WORLD LAKE BUENA VISTA, FL, - The Disney Wildlife Conservation Fund (DWCF) contributed more than $750,000 this year to help fund the global work of scientists whose work focuses on protecting wildlife and wild places. The nearly 50 projects funded involve protecting and studying endangered species and their habitats in more than 25 countries. In addition, most programs include educational or community components to ensure long-term conservation success. DWCF was established in 1995 to support research globally, and in 1998 the program expanded to include contributions made by guests at Disney's Animal Kingdom. Since its inception, DWCF has contributed nearly $5 million to 200 projects stretching from the Florida Keys to Kenya. Conservation-minded guests now support DWCF at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, the Living Seas aquarium at Epcot, Disney's Vero Beach Resort and most recently, the Disney Cruise Line and Disney's Hilton Head Resort. One hundred percent of each guest's contribution goes toward non-profit organizations that have made a commitment to conservation. All administrative and overhead costs are paid by Walt Disney World Co. The projects that will benefit from DWCF awards include a diverse array of work. For example, DWCF is helping to fund aquaculture research on the Queen Conch at Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institution in Florida. Scientists hope to rear and restock the dwindling conch population in the Keys. In the Bahamas, Disney joined the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation to match funds for the Perry Institute for Marine Science Caribbean Marine Research Center. The monies will help create Marine Protected Areas (MPAs). This complicated process is a combination of technical assistance to Bahamian organizations to enhance marine fisheries, involving the communities in workshops, and conducting research to build grassroots support in Exuma, Andros Island, Bimini Island and Eleuthera Island. And, for the fourth year, DWCF is supporting Operation Migration, the talented team that leads juvenile Whooping Cranes with ultra-light aircraft on a 1,225-mile migration path from Wisconsin to Florida (Chassahowitzka National Wildlife Refuge near Tampa). The hope is that the cranes return north in the spring, migrating on their own in the future. The process was first piloted successfully with Sandhill Cranes.
    • Disney Workplaces WORKING AT DISNEY Disney recognizes that a key element in creating the best environment for engaged employees is great leadership. From the recruitment and selection process, through ongoing development and retention, we are highly focused on building great leaders who can fully engage their employees. Leaders take responsibility for creating a vibrant employee experience, understanding that their own behavior and vision drive the creation of a fully-engaged work environment. Enterprise-wide Employee Survey Over the years, many individual business segments and regions have conducted employee surveys. This year, we launched the first-ever global survey in which all employees of The Walt Disney Company and affiliated companies were invited to participate in a single survey. The survey was designed to deliver a consistent, enterprise-wide tool that will allow leaders and employees to gain meaningful insight into the Company. It also provides opportunities for enriching the employee experience and optimizing organizational performance. Our intent is to administer the survey on a two-year cycle, which will enable us to implement improvements and measure results on an ongoing basis. This year, more than 82,000 people from more than 40 countries participated in the employee survey. This represents a participation rate of roughly two-thirds of the cast members and employees who received the survey. The survey results confirmed our Company strengths. Our employees and cast members: Are proud of The Walt Disney Company’s reputation and brands. Survey responses indicate this pride primarily comes from the sense of our ground-breaking creativity and innovation Feel like they are being treated with respect, and that the Company values different points of view Indicate that both Disney as a whole and individual business units have strong cultures Enjoy their work and find it challenging Believe they have been given a solid foundation for success in their jobs The survey also calls attention to opportunities for improvement in our work environment. Our employees and cast members:
    • Feel we must continue to look for ways to spur innovation on a regular basis across all businesses Want more feedback on performance and want to have a regular dialogue with leadership about their future and potential career opportunities at the Company The survey results are being shared with all employees and cast members at both the segment and department levels. Many of them will have the opportunity to participate in ongoing focus groups and action planning teams. Employee Assistance Employees may seek assistance with issues through several formal options, including their immediate supervisor, Human Resource (HR) generalist, employee relations or an anonymous 800 number called the Disney Guideline. HR generalists are based within the businesses and participate in day-to-day operations, giving employees easy access to them. Benefits Disney’s benefits for employees and cast members include, but are not limited to, health and wellness, family-friendly benefits, retirement and savings programs, and the Disney Scholarship program. We will focus on highlights from 2010 below. Health and Wellness Disney-sponsored benefits are important to the security and well-being of our employees and cast members. We provide a comprehensive benefits package intended to attract and retain the employees and cast members who help make us one of the most admired companies in the world. More than 75,000 employees and cast members are covered under our health care plans. Disney is committed to the total well-being — physical, emotional and financial — of our employees and cast members.Disney Healthy Pursuits is the collection of benefits and wellness programs we offer our employees to support them in their pursuits of a healthier life. In 2009, as part of Disney Healthy Pursuits, we launched a new Wellness Rewards Program. Employees who participate are eligible for financial incentives in return for making healthy choices. Currently, the Wellness Rewards Program is part of a multi-year approach to recognize employees who are taking healthy steps and getting results. Employees can earn up to $300 (or double if their spouse or same-sex domestic partner also participates) to help offset their healthcare costs. As of November 30, 2010, 54% of eligible employees had completed the Personal Health Assessment required to qualify for the program. In 2010, we introduced Personal Life Resources, a new program offered through LifeCare that provides our employees, cast members and their families with access to free and confidential resources to help them with day-to-day needs, such as child care and parenting, adult care and aging, financial concerns, and education. Family-Friendly Benefits
    • Our employees and cast members are individuals with diverse interests and unique needs. We recognize and appreciate that work is only one element of our employees' lives. To that end, we provide a wide selection of benefits and services, some of which are unique to Disney. In addition to adoption assistance, survivor support and domestic partner benefits, Disney provides complimentary tickets to Disney-owned theme parks for employees and their eligible dependents and to screenings of Disney films. We are expanding our childcare opportunities in our domestic sites. In the past two years, Disney opened a new childcare facility in Berkeley, CA, to serve employees of PIXAR. In addition, we opened a LEED-certified facility in Glendale, CA, in January 2011 and a new facility in Bristol, CT, for ESPN employees is scheduled to open in September 2011. Two early-childhood development centers provide Central Florida cast members with childcare options that fit their work schedules. In Burbank, California, the Disney Childcare Center has provided high-quality childcare to dependents of our employees in the Los Angeles area since 1993. One of Disney’s foundational values is to respect, appreciate and value everyone. In keeping with this philosophy, same-sex domestic partners are considered dependents and are eligible for benefits. Disney provides retirement savings and investment options to help employees and cast members plan for their financial future. More than 64,000 employees and cast members are eligible upon vesting for a Company-provided pension benefit when they retire. More than 76% of salaried employees and 33% of hourly employees currently participate in the Disney 401(k) plans. All domestic employees are eligible to purchase stock through the Disney Employee Stock Purchase Program. Approximately 11,500 employees and cast members currently participate. Disney Scholarship Program Children of eligible employees and cast members can apply for a scholarship from The Walt Disney Company Foundation through the Disney Scholars program. In 2010, the program awarded 50 college tuition scholarships of up to $20,000 to children of employees, rewarding their high school studies and investing in their promising future achievements. Eligible candidates must be in their final year of high school, planning to attend an accredited college or university and have a parent who is a full-time Disney employee for more than one year. The winners are selected based upon academic achievement and extracurricular activities. Labor Relations With operations in 42 countries, Disney cast members and employees work under a wide variety of labor rules and regulations. More than 36,000 full-time employees are covered by collective bargaining agreements with more than 40 labor unions.
