: Disney entered the games market in 1988 with the establishment of Walt Disney Computer Software, called Disney Interactive
since 1995. During the first years, they were involved mainly in game development, but later gradually changed to mostly publishing business. In 2003, Disney Interactive was renamed toBuena Vista Games, with the Disney Interactive name being used as a publishing label. In 2007 Buena Vista Games was renamed to Disney Interactive Studios. In May 2016, it ceased development on console games and shut down their last studio active, Avalanche Software. However, the company still develops mobile games and Avalanche Software was later re-opened by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.

: "Disney Castle"

Logo: On a black background, we see the Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland, with fireworks appearing one-by-one. The word "
DiSNEY", in its corporate font, appears overlapping the castle.

Variant: Depending on the game (and maybe the platform), this logo will have different colors.

FX/SFX: The fireworks and "Disney" appearing.

Music/Sounds: An 8-bit rendition of the song "Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah" from Song of the South.

Availability: Rare. It was only seen on Matterhorn Screamer! and The Chase on Tom Sawyer's Island.

Logo: On a black background, we see the CGI yellow words


with "
DiSNEY" in its corporate script font. There is a Pinocchio star in the line. The words "sparkle". On some games, this logo has no animation.

  • There is a black and white variation on some Game Boy games.
  • There is also a white background version used on Beauty and the Beast.
  • On Aladdin for Game Boy and Genesis and The Lion King for SNES and Genesis, the Virgin Interactive logo is seen below the Disney Software logo, with "A" and "CO-PRODUCTION" above and below respectively, and "AND" sandwiched in the middle between the Disney Software logo and the Virgin Interactive logo, forming the message "A Disney SOFTWARE and Virgin INTERACTIVE ENTERTAINMENT Co-Production". (For example, the custom variant that was seen on Aladdin for Game Boy and Genesis features the Genie flying from left to right past the Disney Software and Virgin Interactive logos; sometimes it has copyright info below).
  • On The Jungle Book for the SNES and Sega Genesis, Tinker Bell from the 1953 movie Peter Pan flies from the left and waves her hand to form the Disney Software logo. She exits out of the screen, leaving a pixie of dust to dissolve. We also hear an elephant's "howl" sound when the Disney Software logo appears. The Sega Genesis version has different graphics with the Disney Software logo already formed.
  • On The Jungle Book for Sega Game Gear and Sega Master System, the logo reads just "WALT DiSNEY" colored in tan, shining. The logo freezes.
  • On The Lion King for DOS, the logo had enhanced quality.

FX/SFX: The "sparkling".

Music/Sounds: Just the opening of the game's theme. On Mickey Mania, it's silent.

Availability: The animated version can be seen on Aladdin for DOS and Amiga. The still version can be found on The Lion King for DOS, SNES and Sega Genesis with the Virgin logo, and Mickey Mania: The Timeless Adventures of Mickey Mouse for SNES, Sega Genesis, and Sega CD. The black and white version is rare, being seen on The Lion King for Game Boy as well. The second animated version was pretty quite rare, being only seen on The Jungle Book for the SNES and Sega Genesis. It also appears on Disney's Animated Storybook: The Lion King.

Nickname: "Di"

Logo: Just a still image of the Disney Interactive logo with the Disney logo with "INTER" and "ACTIVE" stacked below it with a red square with the Disney "D", with the "i" dot on top cut out of it. This logo is also usually superimposed onto the intro of the game.

  • On The Jungle Book: Rhythm 'n' Groove Party and Donald Duck Advance, copyright info is shown below.
  • For Nintendo 64 games and the GBA version of Monsters, Inc., the logo is in 3-D.
  • There is the animated version in which the entire logo fades in one-by-one on a white background. This can be seen on My Disney Kitchen, Winnie the Pooh: Preschool and Winnie the Pooh: Kindergarten.
  • There is also another version of this logo for everything is in one straight line instead of the normal up and down version, the "DI" logo is on the left and the words "Disney Interactive" are on the right, this is seen on Kingdom Hearts.

2nd Logo
(1996-February 8, 2005)
<img align="bottom" alt="Disney Interactive (2000's)" height="149" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/nPNYK_moHKpz4Zl7F7ZPGw75000/GW198H149" title="Disney Interactive (2000's)" width="198"/><img align="bottom" alt="Disney Interactive (1990's)" height="149" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/0XvbsUC8wHxveE1oRdQa0w216389/GW200H149" title="Disney Interactive (1990's)" width="200"/><img align="bottom" alt="Disney Interactive (1996-2003) (Purple/White Sunburst)" height="149" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/4/EQyT1jm_93-J_-9Vie-eiQ230454/GW200H149" title="Disney Interactive (1996-2003) (Purple/White Sunburst)" width="200"/><img align="bottom" alt="Disney Interactive Logo (Ariel's Story Studio Variant)" height="148" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/a5ff6a87bbb7550974bdfb90dac1789d/GW197H148" title="Disney Interactive Logo (Ariel's Story Studio Variant)" width="197"/>

Nicknames: "Di II", "CGI DI"

Logo: On a black background, a flash starts and the
red box is formed with "DiSNEY INTERACTIVE" above it ("DiSNEY" is in the corporate signature logo font like the last logo). Suddenly, a spark of light sketches the "D" and "i" like the last logo (with a dot above it). Once the dot above the "i" is formed, several sparks of light shoot out of the top left corner of the box. The box with the "D" and "i" glows for a second.

Later Variant:We see a swirl of sparkles on a purple background, and then the flash starts and the red box is formed and it does the same process.

  • On Hercules, the logo is shortened.
  • On some Disney Interactive CD-ROM previews, the entire logo is already formed on a black background and it just draws two letters in a box, then it flashes to a purple/white shade background and then black again.
  • On Disney's Animated Storybook: The Hunchback of Notre Dame, the logo is slowed down.
  • On Toy Story Activity Center, The logo plays normally at the end of a dark blue tunnel while a shortened version of the music from the CG Walt DIsney Pictures logo plays in the background. The clouds from Andy's room walls are on the walls of the tunnel.
  • On Toy Story 2 Activity Center, the logo plays on a TV.
  • On The Little Mermaid's Story Studio, the logo features in one of the bubbles and has the opening theme of the game playing.
  • On the first edition PC game of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?, the logo simply flashes in on a black background.
  • On Disney Villains Revenge, A Longer version of the purple background variant appears to exist. Just before the usual animation starts on the purple background, we see clouds and sparkles flying and moving and showing clips of Steamboat Willie, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, and Beauty and the Beast.

FX/SFX: This is some cool CGI animation!

Music/Sounds: A lab-like tune depending on the variant, the opening theme of the game (e.g. Tarzan and Hercules), or none. On the purple background variant, we hear a synth tune (with the opening of said tune being reminiscent to the synth tune of the second Capcom logo) along with the sounds of stars and magic. The WWTBAM? variation uses a 3-note synth tune, then a long fade-out that transitions into the Celador logo.

Music/Sounds Variant: On The Haunted Mansion (2003) video game, the purple background variant of the music is double-pitched and is warp-speed.

Availability: The original black variant appears on some Disney PC games released during this time period, normally as part of the games' opening. The version with music appears on the PS1 versions of A Bug's Life, Toy Story 2: Buzz Lightyear to the Rescue!, Toy Story Racer, Buzz Lightyear of Star Command and Disney's Dinosaur (other versions of these games use the still logo (for A Bug's Life) or the purple version of this logo). The Purple background version is very common, and appears on many Disney video games released during this time period, used in tandem with the previous and 4th logos. The last game to use this logo was Winnie the Pooh's Rumbly Tumbly Adventure.

3rd Logo
(May 1-September 19, 2001)

Nicknames: "Di III", "Disney Rock"

Logo: We start in a green-toned water cave, when an earthquake starts and some stones fall down. A light appears. Then the rock emerges, with the
<img align="right" alt="Disney Interactive (2001)" height="166" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/QZ44nhj2OyWjWlcnKp5UmQ428499/GW222H166" title="Disney Interactive (2001)" width="222"/>
Disney Interactive logo carved on it (in yellow instead of red).

FX/SFX: Al the animation: falling stones, water ripple, rock emerging and the light in the cave.

Music/Sounds: Earthquake humming, splashes of water, followed by a soft musical tune.

Availability: Seen on Atlantis: The Lost Empire, Search for the Journal, and Atlantis: Trial by Fire.

4th Logo

: "The Paper", 'Di IV"

Logo: On a black background, we see a white paper fly with the Disney Interactive logo in it, drawing. Then a fairy resembling Tinker Bell flies in to colorize
the logo. The logo "shines".
<img align="right" alt="Disney Interactive (2002)" height="166" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/yBGl-fp5gXBHpGwp4z5Kog91683/GW222H166" title="Disney Interactive (2002)" width="222"/>

Variant: On Monsters, Inc. for PlayStation 2, the logo is slightly stretched-center.

FX/SFX: The paper flying.

Music/Sounds: A long whoosh, and a loud synth note, which sounds similar to the THX Deep Note. On Disney’s The Jungle Book: 1st Grade, it’s silent.

Availability: It's a lot harder to find than the 2nd logo. Games that have this logo include Lilo & Stitch: Trouble In Paradise, Peter Pan: Return to Never Land,Piglet's Big Game (the European versions use the 2nd logo instead), Stitch: Experiment 626, Monsters, Inc., Pooh's Party Games (Party Time with Winnie the Pooh in Europe), the Nintendo GameCube version of Donald Duck: Goin' Quackers, Disney Trivia Challenge and Disney Princess: Magical Dress-Up.

Final Note: Disney Interactive was folded into Buena Vista Games in 2005 after the release of Cinderella: Magical Dreams and was folded again to Disney Interactive Studios.

<img align="bottom" alt="Buena Vista Games (2005)" height="157" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/Uy44PsKy-j4VYKZmaLovjQ45544/GW214H157" title="Buena Vista Games (2005)" width="214"/><img align="bottom" alt="Buena Vista Games" height="157" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/XZVapE8Qb91UjjjeDRENtw5700/GW235H157" title="Buena Vista Games" width="235"/><img align="bottom" alt="Buena Vista Games (2005)" height="157" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/bOIl2uzNPbyxsl5hQrULUQ23977/GW236H157" title="Buena Vista Games (2005)" width="236"/>

Nickname: "BVG"

Logo: On a black background, we see a
blue box fading in with the letters "bvg" in lowercase letters inside it. The words "BUENA VISTA GAMES" is shown below. Then the logo turns dark and zooms out, leaving its green shadow for a second. For the later years, the logo is slightly re-colored.

  • On The Chronicles of Narnia for GBA, the logo is arranged with snowy background.
  • On the NDS version of Cars, the logo is on a movie theater.
  • Certain versions of Kingdom Hearts II (it is unknown which ones), despite the release date, use an in credit Disney Interactive Studios logo.

FX/SFX: The logo fade in and turned dark for the animated version, none for the still version.

Music/Sounds: None. Sometimes, the game's theme or a whoosh noise.

Availability: Uncommon. The animated version can be found on Disney video games of the era. The still version can be seen on Cars and The Proud Family among others all for the GBA. Until 2005, this logo is used in tandem with the Disney Interactive logo (which was claimed to be a publishing brand of BVG). The white background version can be seen on Kingdom Hearts II.

Nicknames: "The Disney Shield"

Logo: On a black background, we see a glowing 3D
blue shield, with "DiSNEY" in a silver blue corporate font in it, and below it is "INTERACTIVE STUDIOS" in blue. The logo shines. Copyright info is shown below, or sometimes not at all.


  • For majority of Game Boy Advance games, early games and Pixar games (except for Toy Story Mania! and Toy Story 3: The Video Game which had the regular logo instead), "INTERACTIVE STUDIOS" is absent. Some Pixar games don't even have the shield.
  • For Nintendo DS games, the logo is still, but sometimes superimposed over the intro of the game. The previous variant can be used here as well, for example on Herbie: Rescue Rally.
  • There is a still version of the logo with "INTERACTIVE STUDIOS" on it in a white background with no shining. The shield is also silver.
  • There is a version with white background. This can be seen on trailers, but also on a few games.
  • On mobile and iPhone releases, the logo is designed as just "Disney Games" on the blue background.
  • On later games with this logo, the shield appears darker than usual, with the waving ripple, but without the shine.
  • There are other custom variants used in the games.
  • A longer variant of this logo exists, in which sparks are seen forming the oval on a mechanical-looking background before flashing to reveal the final product. This version was animated by Hammer Creative.

FX/SFX: The logo shining.

Music/Sounds: A sparkling/whooshing sound.

Availability: Common. The still version can be found on a majority of GBA and Nintendo DS games, and all Kingdom Hearts games from Kingdom Hearts: Re: Chain of Memories onwards. PC games that have this logo include Disney Princess: Enchanted Journey, The Princess and the Frog, Meet The Robinsons and Bolt.

2nd Logo
(June 8, 2012-January 18, 2013)
<img align="bottom" alt="Disney Interactive (2012)" height="150" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/1/8io0Gkx17gPKJw5CQ93noQ37426/GW269H150" title="Disney Interactive (2012)" width="269"/><embed allowfullscreen="true" height="150" src="http://wikifoundrytools.com/wiki/closinglogos/widget/youtubevideo/9f4a19f9065684c5a9a3ba80a1103428cab0bcc6" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="184" wmode="transparent"/>

Logo: We first see a white ring on a dark grey background. A grey cursor clicks the ring, making it flash a little and turning into a "C", which spins for a bit. "INTERA TIVE" wipes in from the middle, and "DiSNEY" (in the usual font) fades in on the top, which makes this:
Copyright information is shown on the bottom right.

FX/SFX: The mouse moving, the "C" spinning and the zooming out.

: The ending theme of the Webseries. On Swampy's Underground Adventures, we hear a remixed click, an ascending techno note and a ping.

Availability: Seen on the Talking Friends and Swampy's Underground Adventures webseries on Disney.com. It's not shown in any games, though.
