The Disney apparel line is tightly woven into its movies, cartoons and television shows from the legendary and traditional, like Mikey Mouse, Donald Duck or Winnie the Pooh, to the company's newest franchises and television shows, such as High School Musical, Hanna Montana or the Marvel brand with its lineup of super heroes, which joined the Disney company in 2009.

Disney is also concerned about how and where its apparel is made. In 2013, following the collapse of a factory in Bangladesh – with dire consequences- Disney banned the use of items produced in what the company considered high-risk countries: Bangladesh, Venezuela, Belarus, Pakistan and Ecuador. The new policy requires all its factories around the world to work with the Better Work Health and Safety program run by the International Labor Organization and the International Finance Corporation.
For its cultural heritage, unforgettable characters, great clothing and responsible manufacturing, we give Disney five out of five stars
