With the exception of Disney's DOS classic Coaster, of course :)

I wonder why? Maybe they should leave the crappy kid games for the WII first party devs...

How horrible. Hope their plans with Playdom become fruitful.

That is because Disney do not make M rated games and we know if it is not M rated 12-13 year old...
...kids will not buy it.

Time to make good games I think. Maybe a FP fighter/shooter where all Disney characters go out their way to harm each other. I would buy this, but my baby boy might not like Mickey mouse being stabbed LoL
Sorry son : ( daddy didn't mean to kill mickey

If they spent less time making "Epic Mickey" and more time working with Square Enix making Kingdom Hearts games, I'm sure they would turn a profit.
