Do You own Disney stock? What are the benefits?

Hello,

I was thinking about buying a few shares of Disney stock for my family for christmas.

I know that Euro Disney has this program...But what about the United States?

Also does anyone know how much Disney stock is running a share?

Here is the EuroDisney info ...I'm looking for this same info for DISNEYLAND.

Thanks!

I've owned Pixar (now Disney) stock for years and haven't gotten a thing. . . well, except an increase in my retirement account.

I've never heard of any special perks, but would be interested if there were.

The Disney Shareholder Club is for UK. Here in the US, we get this:


Q: Do you have a shareholder benefit program? A: No, we do not have a shareholder benefit program.

Hi Mike!

thanks for posting that.

Wonder why they didn't create a share holder benefit program for Disney USA..since this is where Disney started.

Have a Happy Day!

Maybe they don't feel they need to. Disney is already huge in the states, maybe it wasn't such a hit overseas so they offered perks to shareholders?

Wow, reading the above post really got my heart beating til I found out it was reguarding out of US. We had held Disney stock for 25 yrs and never gotten a thing from them except for mail. I finally sold it last year at about a $2,000. loss. Loved the stock as it was so pretty and got pride everytime we went to a park, but the poor management of the company made it a financial loss for us and we bailed out. A stock or tow for each kid is great to frame but beyond that there are better investments IMHO. I am a Disney fanatic but money is money.

Really?
Disney stock gives out dividend albeit really small and I remembered right after 9/11 the stock price fell down all the way to some crazy $19 (or maybe $14). I almost bought it but didn't know anything about stocks.
Now they're up to $30s again. If I had bought some then I would've made a mint by now...

There used to be more perks for being a shareholder in the US, however many people bought one share just for the benefits and the program became overloaded. Now we get zip!

I bought at $30. and sold at $25. That is why my loss. I had held it for years. purchased way before 9/11 and then took a beating that never came back til now but I had waited too long allready as I hadput thousands in it, not just a couple of stocks as I so believed in it.. When we bought they had talked aboutbenefits but we never saw them. Yes, we did get a SMALL dividend each year but it did not amount to enough to even go out to dinner. I am glad it has worked out for you and hope it continues to rise for you.

It's a shame the US parks do not offer anything to the Disney shareholders. When Disneyland Paris (Euro Disney as it was then) I think it had something to do with the fact that the park whas not 100% funded by Disney, some was funded a different way (not sure exactly) which is how you get the shares. I own Euro Disney shares and the benifits are great (that was the reason I bought my shares.) I have already more than what I paid for the shares in discounts for my next trip to DLRP, plus I will save on dining and have saved in the Disney stores. My Disney shareholders card takes pride of place in the front of my purse!!

I have one share of Disney stock that I purchased through OneShare.com. I get the benefit of being able to say I own a little piece of Disneyland AND a dividend check each year for about $0.26! WooHoo!

We own some stock. They don't sell stock for the park exclusively, its for the parent company which is The Walt Disney Co. Also, a CM can purchase stock as that's an option if they are offered that benefit so it would seem a little redundant to get those perks when you have CM perks already. Plus, I really don't think a lot of people really care for "perks" because most people buy stocks for investment / retirement purposes. If the stock isn't worth anything then who really cares about the "perks".
