Coca-Cola and Disney

Q: Is there any specific information on the history of the partnership between Coca-Cola and Disney? When did it start, how did it start? It seems that the two are synonymous with each other, but I wonder how it all started.
Crystal, Seattle, Washington

A [Dave Smith]: Coca-Cola sponsored the first Disney television show, One Hour in Wonderland, which aired as a special on December 25, 1950. When Disneyland opened in 1955, Coke became a participant with the Refreshment Corner on Main Street, U.S.A., and remains a participant there today. Coca-Cola is now the global beverage provider for all of Disney's 11 parks in the U.S., Hong Kong, France and Japan.

  1. It was my understanding that ABC produced the original shows in which Walt 'pitched' Disneyland, with a $500,000 investment and a $4.5 million loan and thereby claimed 34.5% ownership. No? Coca-cola was one of the original vendors licensed in order to raise extra capital. No?

  2. Hello there! Quick question that's totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when viewing from my iphone. I'm trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to correct this issue.
    If you have any recommendations, please share.
    Thank you!
