"We want our guests to come to Disney.com to play, to learn, to explore, and to share experiences with their friends."

For those who want broader access to family-friendly sites on the Web, Disney 's Internet Guide, also known as DIG, continues to provide guests with eight main categories that touch on the everyday lives of today's families. Each of the sites featured on DIG is handpicked by Disney Online staff members and continuously reviewed for relevance and entertaining content.
