Dividends
Q: When did Disney declare the most recent dividend payment?

A: The Walt Disney Company Board of Directors declared a cash dividend of $0.66 per share for the first six months of fiscal 2015. Disney will begin paying dividends on a semi-annual basis rather than once a year.

Q: When are you paying the second dividend payment? Will it be in December or January? Will it also be $0.66 cents?

A: We have not announced either the timing or amount of the second dividend payment.

Q: Does the 15% increase referenced in the press release imply that you are paying $1.32 total dividend this year?

A: No. All we announced is a $0.66 cents per share dividend payment, and that we will begin paying dividends on a semi-annual basis.  If you take the $1.15 per share paid for last year and divide by 2, you’ll get 57.5 cents.  The $0.66 cents is 15% above half of last year’s actual dividend payment.  We have not said that this year’s total dividend payment will be $1.32.

Q: When was Disney's most recent dividend paid?

A: The Walt Disney's Company most recent dividend is payable July 29, 2015 to all shareholders of record July 6, 2015.

A: The reinvestment of your dividends will be completed within five business days of the dividend payment date.

XBRL
Q: What is XBRL?

A: XBRL (eXtensible Business Reporting Language) is an XML-based language for the electronic transmission of business and financial data. XBRL data, also referred to as "interactive data" by the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC), does not change accounting standards or methods used for financial and business reporting; it is an electronic filing format for annual and quarterly reports that is supplemental to existing formats (ASCII or HTML).

Q: How do I view an XBRL document?

A: The XBRL exhibits provided on The Walt Disney Company's investor relations website are available for download through a zip file and may be viewed by importing them into an XBRL viewer application of your choice.

XBRL documents can also be viewed in a web-friendly format through the SEC's Interactive Financial Report Viewer. To view Disney's company filings in interactive format, click on the "Interactive Data" link, where available, on the Disney filing section of the SEC website.
