Disney.com is a website, owned by The Walt Disney Company and its subsidiaries, promotes the Disney theme parks and offers entertainment content intended for children.

For years, Disney.com has been a very popular website: a survey back in April 1998 revealed that Disney.com had over 10% more unique visitors than ABCNews.com, and the combined Disney/Infoseek websites were second in web traffic to leader Yahoo! that month. [2]

Website Disney.com is managed by the Disney Online unit of the Walt Disney Internet Group (WDIG), a subsidiary division of The Walt Disney Company The WDIG division also runs the websites for the ABC network, ABC.com and ABCNEWS.com, as well as top sports site ESPN.com. It was redesigned to a fully Adobe Flash website on February 6, 2007.

The current portal is Disney's second effort at a web portal the first being ended with the loss of go.com. The web site has updated its logos to the Disney brand, but still is actually a redirect to similar named Disney.go.com.

On September 21, 2011, the content from Disney.com was launched as a free channel available through the Roku streaming player. It is the first player so far to allow viewing through a television.[3]

Disney Xtreme Digital

Disney Xtreme Digital (Disney XD for short) is a new service of Disney.com that lets members communicate and interact with each other with chat rooms that are limited to selected phrases and the ability to create your own Disney XD page, which are called channels. Disney XD allows you to watch full-length episodes from Disney Channel and other videos, play online quizzes and games, stream Radio Disney on your computer, and preview new movies and music albums. There is also another feature called Shop DXD. Shop DXD uses your D-Points that you earn from playing games and activities to purchase items for your channel, such as backgrounds and phrases to use for chat rooms. The service is only available in the United States and the United Kingdom.

It is now split into My Pages for pages and Homeroom for TV episodes. This has no relation to the channel Disney XD.
