A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this website.

Positive Messages

With a wide range of content, messages will vary.

Violence & Scariness

Some spooky or scary material in the games and video clips, but the violence is mostly cartoon-like.

Sexy Stuff
Language
Consumerism

Streaming videos, animated banner ads, and pop-ups found; most are Disney related, but there is some outside advertising. Kids have access to the huge "Shop" area of the site.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this site is truly all things Disney. Although the site is sleek and impressive to look at, there's a lot going on -- and it can be overwhelming for some kids. You'll find movie clips, TV schedules and episodes, games galore, music, events, and travel information, as well as a Disney shopping extravaganza. Advertising is used throughout the site with streaming videos, animated banner ads, and some pop-ups that promote mostly Disney stuff, but some outside advertising can be found as well. The chat feature is extremely well regulated with preset phrases and questions. Kids can either safely chat with random people or their "True Friends" -- a feature that requires users to trade a code offline to activate. And, parents must enable the chat feature for kids under 13. Kids can also create their own personal page with icons, personal information, and multimedia all chosen from preset lists. To spruce up their pages, kids can "buy" other things with earned points.

Is it any good?

Disney fans are in for a treat: DISNEY.COM is a sleek, crisp Web site with all things Disney. From movies to television to radio to games and more, kids can find their favorite Disney people, places, and things all in one spot, clearly organized so they can find their favorites very easily. They may be distracted on the way, however; streaming videos are found mid-screen throughout, highlighting Disney.com offerings, and multiple banner ads rotate for optimum attention grabbing (and diversion).

The games on Disney.com are definitely worth mentioning and playing. Whether going on an Orchestra Treasure Hunt with Little Einsteins, completing Black Pearl 101 with the Pirates of the Caribbean, or playing Super Villain Smash Out with Kim Possible, the games are fun -- and a lot are educational.

Online interaction: Communication varies across the site, and includes chat, message boards, and public forums. Parents can set the level of interaction their child can participate in.
