Hang Chen, Yuzhuo Li, Xi Ling, and Meilin Yan

Abstract—The Walt Disney Company is a multinational media conglomerate headquartered in California. The company has gradually accumulated experience, capital and technology to support its development since 1923. After a series of large acquisitions, it has become the largest media and entertainment company in the United States. However, while Disney already serves many countries and regions around the world, the vast market of China is not completely open to Disney, especially under the impact of the epidemic. Therefore, Disney needs to change its development strategy in the Chinese market to strengthen its competitiveness. This paper adopts SWOT analysis method to analyze Disney from multiple industrial dimensions and comes to the view that Disney can cooperate with Tencent in three industries with the objective of rapid development in the Chinese market, including social network- Tencent QQ and Wechat; Gaming - King of Glory; Video - Tencent Video, to achieve a win-win result. At the same time, the paper also analyzes the weaknesses and threats faced by Disney, and puts forward some suggestions. These analyses and suggestions have important economic and social benefits for Disney to explore the Chinese market and improve its profits.

Index Terms—Disney, SWOT analysis, business strategy.
