The Disney Magazine

The Disney Magazine began life as the Disney News in 1965.

The publication changed its name to the Disney Magazine in 1994 and unfortunately ceased to exist by 2005.

The magazine began life as the Disney News on December 1, 1965. The first issue was 30 pages long, and the cover showed Walt Disney surrounded by several costumed characters in front of Disneyland's Sleeping Beauty Castle. The magazine was initially a free benefit for members of the Magic Kingdom Club but later started charging a cover price (discounted for members).

The publication changed its name to the Disney Magazine on March 1, 1994 to better reflect the increased size and content of the magazine. When Disney ended the Magic Kingdom Club on March 1, 2001, the magazine continued, but circulation numbers began dropping.

Publication ended with the Summer 2005 issue. Subscribers were offered subscriptions to either FamilyFun or Disney Adventures, or refunds. The magazine's website said the end was due to an increase of people choosing to find information on the Internet, and thus lack of readership.
