We don’t have to tell you that there are scores of Disney fansites out there in Internetland. Because you have a choice in where you get your Disney Parks news, entertainment stories, Walt Disney Company news and updates, info on Foodie Guides, and posts about kindness with a Disney twist, we thank you for visiting DisneyDining.com!
The Walt Disney Company is a big player in the world of social media, and for good reason. The company uses the magic and power of the worldwide web to share information about the parks, including new rides, attractions, and festivals, to share upcoming theatrical releases for Disney, Marvel, PIXAR, and Star Wars, to update Guests on the latest offerings in accommodations and services at the parks, to share heroic stories about some of its Cast Members, and a thousand other things.
And when Disney fans see Disney news, they get excited! (And then they spend more money!)
The Walt Disney Company has multiple verified accounts across many platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and TikTok, among others, and the accounts that share Disney Parks news and news about Disney+ and the company’s many upcoming films and films still in the works are some of the most active accounts in social media.

But one of Disney’s many verified accounts has been pretty quiet for a while–and we’re not talking for a week or two. We’re talking two years. Disney’s ABC|Photo Department’s verified Twitter account suddenly came out of hibernation to take a jab at the Disney fansite WDWNT for the fansite’s failure to use a photo of Walt Disney in one of its tweets.
@ropedropchris noticed a reply tweet from Disney ABC|Photo to @WDWNT and tweeted the question, “can someone tell [me] why a verified Disney account came of an almost 2-year hiatus to complain about WDWNT?”

Twitter user @OOCParks also saw the tweet and found a little enjoyment out of the exchange, tweeting “Disney going after WDWNT might be a new favorite for me.”

The original tweet featured two photos: the first was a photo of Michael Eisner and Frank Wells with their Disney pals, and the other photo was of Bob Iger and Mickey Mouse.
For whatever reason, the Disney ABC|Photo Department (or someone acting on its behalf or possibly nefariously against the department) felt that a photo of Walt Disney himself should have been a part of the tweet from WDWNT, but the Disney tweet doesn’t give much more of an explanation, except for stating the following:
“And where is the photo of Walt Disney? This is a terrible oversight. Walt Disney was a genius and truly loved America and the world. Please update your post!”
Hey, more Walt is always a good thing to us!
The Disney ABC|Photo Twitter account currently shows no new original tweets since January 15, 2020.
