I know not everyone is as knowledgeable about Disney as the fans are, but even so, there are a few misconceptions I would like to kill with fire:
1a. Disney has made more animated movies than just Princess fairytales and The Lion King. Doesn't anyone remember Peter Pan anymore? Pinocchio? The Jungle Book?
1b. However, not all animated movies are Disney. Exhibit A would be Anastasia, which is not Disney, but Fox deliberately emulating Disney. If you thought it was Disney, then congratulations--you fell for it.
2a. Disney does not equal Pixar. Disney now owns Pixar, and before they owned it, they funded its movies in exchange for distribution rights, and sometimes Disney contracts Pixar animators for help on its movies, and Pixar president John Lasseter is also the head of Disney's animation department...but they're still two separate studios with different storytelling styles.
2b. Not all CGI movies under the Disney banner were made by Pixar. Toy Story, Finding Nemo, Cars? Pixar. Bolt, Meet the Robinsons, Chicken Little? Not Pixar. Fortunately, this one is falling by the wayside, as Disney is now using CGI to do Princess fairytales.
3. Not all Disney or Pixar movies are named after their lead characters.. There are no such movies as Belle (it's called Beauty and the Beast), Jack Sparrow (Pirates of the Caribbean), or Lightning McQueen (Cars), and no such characters as Ratatouille (his name is Remy), Sleeping Beauty (Aurora), or Alice in Wonderland (she's just Alice, no last name given, and Wonderland is the place).
4. There is no such place as "Disney"--or if there is, it's a studio/corporate headquarters and not a theme park. There is a Disneyland Resort in California, comprising Disneyland Park (or "Disneyland" for short) and Disney California Adventure (or "the other one" for short), and a Walt Disney World in Florida, comprising the Magic Kingdom (the one that's like Disneyland), Epcot (the one with the giant golf ball), Disney-Hollywood Studios, and Disney's Animal Kingdom, plus some water parks and themed hotels. There are also Disneylands in Japan, France, and China. But if your vacation was in Florida, you did not go to Disneyland. (Also, Walt Disney never set foot in any but the original Disneyland Park in Anaheim. I could cut Ridley Pearson for claiming otherwise in that damn book. Like the Orlando resort isn't overexposed enough at the expense of the original.)
That's all for now. Consider yourself enlightened.
