Disney has shown to be a respectable caretaker for intellectual property. Everyone always jumps to Princess films, crappy TV programs for tweens, and "Under the Sea" quotes, but they have done excellent with Marvel, the Muppets, Pixar, and others. Plus they can't do worse than Lucas did with the prequels. Them buying Blizz (if it was hypothetically possible) would prolly be the only thing that could kick the WoW movie out of development hell, and I trust they would maintain the Blizzard company culture within the new Blizz division.

I got one thing to say:
Jonas Brothers ^^
I wonder if they would have a WoW ride at Disneyland.....that could be pretty cool.
Best thing Disney would bring is their animation work (no house does it better). It may also bring the ESRB "T" rating back to the game, as well.
From the #1 Cata review on Amazon.com: "Blizzard's greatest misstep was blaming players instead of admitting their mistakes.
They've convinced half of the population that the other half are unskilled whiners, causing a permanent rift in the community."
The amount of money it would take to make something so awesome is staggering. But if Universal can transplant Harry Potter out of movies into real life, Disney could surely compare.
I say we change this thread into a petition for Disney to buyout whatever stakes they need to acquire Blizzard.
Edit: As terrible as Cata was, think how awesome a roller coaster where the cars are deathwing destroying Stormwind and the rest of Azeroth would be. Complete with destructive elements like some of Universal's great disaster rides. Exploding fire, water, wind, and animatronics all out the wazoo.

Your idea is nice... but I would also say two things:
1) Don't put all eggs in one basket
2) Don't spread creative resources too thinly...
Having said that, as much as I like what they've done with Avengers, John Lassiter and his crew are doing great, but share the one thing everybody has on this planet - 24 hours in a day. They can't be on top of EVERYTHING. Hell... if they didn't nab Joss Wheadon for Avengers, we would've been singing a WHOLE different tune!
And as point 1 also mentions, don't throw all sources under one roof. If anything happens to Mouse-House... all those franchises would be in peril.
