Rick Munarriz writes about the choices investors face when looking at the entertainment industry. Not a big surprise that he signals out The Walt Disney Company as a good buy.
Disney hasn’t wasted any time in cashing in on the goodwill of Pixar’s beloved characters. If Disney’s troubled California Adventure park can be saved, it will be mostly due to next year’s addition of Toy Story Mania, the likely rollout of Carland Radiator Springs in a few years, and the Monsters, Inc. dark ride that replaced one of the lamest attractions in the park.
The Pixar influence isn’t just a California Adventure savior. A new Finding Nemo musical just opened at Florida’s Animal Kingdom. Nemo has also inspired new additions at EPCOT in Florida and Disneyland in California.
Carland Radiator Springs? Is that what they’re calling it now?
