    They tried to buy the Church of Satan once for "synergy" reasons.The deal fell through because of duplication of effort, the Disney Strategic Planning Department would feel "threatened".

    As much money as Disney has, they could never buy either, but do not be suprised to see either one of them one day buy Disney.

    Re: How many Companies does Disney own now?

    Actually they do own more than this... which has been an issue in the past with the board of directors... They have an investment wing of the Walt Disney Company that isn't always talked about...

    First off there is an Investment Capital unit that is controlled by Disney called Steamboat Ventures. Among these are PhotoTLC...

    Disney also partnered percentage wise in a great many bussinesses, like House of Blues restaurant chain...

    As for the family....

    Roy Disney's businesses can be found at Shamrock Holdings. They include The Harlem Globetrotters among others.

    Diane Disney Miller has businesses too, but the only one I know of is Silverado Vineyards in Napa Valley. They produce a maritage called "Fantasia" - appropreate....

    Depends on which one... I think they could go along way purchasing with Antone LeVey's image... Think about all those movies he was in durring the 70's... Rosemary's Baby...

    It would totally fit in with Disney's "dark period."
