THE WALT DISNEY COMPANY, a corporation duly organized and existing under the laws of the State of Delaware (herein referred to as the “Company”), for value received, hereby promises to pay to CEDE & CO., or registered assigns, the Principal Amount specified above on the Maturity Date specified above and to pay interest thereon from the Original Issue Date specified above or from the most recent Interest Payment Date specified above to which interest has been paid or duly provided for, semiannually in arrears, commencing with the Interest Payment Date falling on September 4, 2017 and thereafter on the Interest Payment Dates specified above and at Maturity, at the Interest Rate per annum set forth above until the principal hereof is paid or made available for payment. Interest payments on this Note will include interest accrued to but excluding the Interest Payment Date or Maturity, as the case may be.  The interest so payable, and punctually paid or duly provided for, on any Interest Payment Date will, as provided in the Indenture (as defined below), be paid to the Person in whose name this Note (or one or more Predecessor Securities) is registered at the close of business on the Regular Record Date set forth above (whether or not a Business Day (as defined below)), as the case may be, next preceding such Interest Payment Date; provided, however, that interest payable at Maturity shall be payable to the Person to whom principal shall be payable. If any Interest Payment Date or Maturity with respect to this Note falls on a day that is not a Business Day, the payment due on such Interest Payment Date or at Maturity may be made on the following day that is a Business Day as if it were made on the date such payment was due and no interest shall accrue on the amount so payable for the period from and after such Interest Payment Date or Maturity, as the case may be.  Interest on this Note will be computed on the basis of a 360-day year of twelve 30-day months.

 

Except as otherwise provided in the Indenture, any interest not punctually paid or duly provided for on any Interest Payment Date (herein called “Defaulted Interest”) will forthwith cease to be payable to the Holder on the Regular Record Date with respect to such Interest Payment Date and may either be paid to the Person in whose name this Note (or one or more Predecessor Securities) is registered at the close of business on a Special Record Date for the payment of such Defaulted Interest to be fixed by the Trustee (as defined below), notice of which shall be given to Holders of Notes not less than 10 days prior to such Special Record Date, or be paid at any time in any other lawful manner not inconsistent with the requirements of any securities exchange on which the Notes may be listed, and upon such notice as may be required by such exchange, all as more fully provided in the Indenture.

 

Payment of the principal of and interest on this Note will be made at the office or agency of the Company maintained for that purpose, initially designated to be the Corporate Trust Office (as defined below) of the Trustee in Los Angeles, California, and at such additional offices or agencies as the Company may designate, in such coin or currency of the United States of America as at the time of payment is legal tender for payment of public and private debts; provided, however, that at the option of the Company, payments of interest on this Note (other than at Maturity) may be made by check mailed to the address of the Person entitled thereto as such address shall appear in the register of Securities or by wire transfer of immediately available funds to the account of the Holder of this Note if appropriate wire transfer instructions have been received in writing by the Trustee not less than 15 days prior to the applicable Interest Payment Date; and provided, further, that if this Note is a global Note (a “Global Note”) registered in the name of a Depositary or its nominee, payments of principal of and interest on this Note shall be made by wire transfer of immediately available funds to the Depositary or its nominee. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company will make payments of interest on any Interest Payment Date other than the Maturity Date to each registered Holder of $10,000,000 (or, if the payment currency is other than United States dollars, the equivalent thereof in the particular payment currency) or more in aggregate principal amount of definitive Notes (whether having identical or different terms and provisions) by wire transfer of immediately available funds if the applicable registered Holder has delivered appropriate wire transfer instructions in writing to the Trustee not less than 15 days prior to the particular Interest Payment Date.  Any wire transfer instructions received by the Trustee shall remain in effect until revoked by the applicable registered Holder.

 

Reference is hereby made to the further provisions of this Note set forth below, which further provisions shall for all purposes have the same effect as if set forth at this place.

Unless the certificate of authentication hereon has been executed by the Trustee or its duly appointed co-authenticating agent by manual signature, this Note shall not be entitled to any benefit under the Indenture or be valid or obligatory for any purpose.

 

This Note is one of a duly authorized issue of Securities of the Company (which term includes any successor corporation under the Indenture hereinafter referred to) issued and to be issued pursuant to such Indenture. This Security is one of a series designated by the Company as its Medium-Term Notes, Series G (the “Notes”). The Indenture does not limit the aggregate principal amount of the Securities.

 

The Company issued this Note pursuant to an Indenture, dated as of September 24, 2001 (herein called the “Indenture”), between the Company and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, a national banking association, as trustee (herein called the “Trustee,” which term includes any successor trustee under the Indenture), to which Indenture and all indentures supplemental thereto reference is hereby made for a statement of the respective rights, limitations of rights, duties and immunities thereunder of the Company, the Trustee and Holders of the Notes and of the terms upon which the Notes are, and are to be, authenticated and delivered.

 

The Notes are issuable as Registered Securities, without coupons, in denominations of $2,000 and any amount in excess thereof which is an integral multiple of $1,000. As provided in the Indenture and subject to certain limitations therein set forth, Notes are exchangeable for a like aggregate principal amount of Notes of like tenor and terms of any authorized denomination, as requested by the Holder surrendering the same, upon surrender of the Note or Notes to be exchanged at any office or agency described below where Notes may be presented for registration of transfer.

 

The Company may from time to time, without the consent of existing Note Holders, issue additional Notes (“Additional Notes”) having the same terms and conditions (including maturity and interest payment terms) as previously issued Notes in all respects, except for issue date, and, if applicable, issue price, date from which interest shall accrue and the first payment of interest.

 

This Note may not be redeemed prior to the Earliest Redemption Date set forth above. If no Earliest Redemption Date is so set forth, this Note is not redeemable prior to the Maturity Date. If an Earliest Redemption Date is set forth above, this Note is redeemable at any time on or after the Earliest Redemption Date set forth above at the option of the Company, in whole or from time to time in part, upon not less than 30 nor more than 60 days’ notice mailed to the registered Holder hereof, at the Redemption Price set forth in the next succeeding paragraph.

 

This Note may be redeemed, in whole or in part, at the option of the Company, at any time or from time to time prior to the Maturity Date specified above, at a Redemption Price equal to the greater of the following amounts:

 

(1)                                 100% of the principal amount of this Note to be redeemed; or

 

(2)                                 as determined by the Independent Investment Banker (as defined below), the sum of the present values of the remaining scheduled payments of principal of and interest on this Note to be redeemed (not including any portion of any payments of interest accrued to the applicable Redemption Date) discounted to such Redemption Date on a semiannual basis (assuming a 360-day year consisting of twelve 30-day months) at the Treasury Rate (as defined below) plus 7.5 basis points,

 

plus, in the case of both clauses (1) and (2) above, accrued and unpaid interest on the principal amount of this Note being redeemed to such Redemption Date.

 

Notwithstanding the foregoing, installments of interest on this Note whose Stated Maturity is prior to a Redemption Date for this Note shall be payable to the Holder of this Note (or one or more Predecessor Securities) of record at the close of business on the relevant Regular Record Dates referred to above, all as provided in the Indenture.  The following terms shall have the meanings set forth below:

“Treasury Rate” means, with respect to any Redemption Date for this Note, the rate per annum equal to the semiannual equivalent yield to maturity of the Comparable Treasury Issue, assuming a price for the Comparable Treasury Issue (expressed as a percentage of its principal amount) equal to the Comparable Treasury Price for such Redemption Date.

 

The Treasury Rate will be calculated on the third business day preceding the applicable Redemption Date.  As used in the preceding sentence and in the definition of “Reference Treasury Dealer Quotation” below, the term “business day” means any day, other than a Saturday or Sunday, that is neither a legal holiday nor a day on which commercial banks are authorized or required by law, regulation or executive order to close in The City of New York.

 

“Comparable Treasury Issue” means, with respect to any Redemption Date for this Note, the United States Treasury security selected by the Independent Investment Banker as having an actual or interpolated maturity comparable to the remaining term of this Note that would be utilized, at the time of selection and in accordance with customary financial practice, in pricing new issues of corporate debt securities of comparable maturity to the remaining term of this Note.

 

“Comparable Treasury Price” means, with respect to any Redemption Date for this Note, (i) if the Independent Investment Banker obtains four Reference Treasury Dealer Quotations for that Redemption Date, the average of those Reference Treasury Dealer Quotations after excluding the highest and lowest of those Reference Treasury Dealer Quotations, (ii) if the Independent Investment Banker obtains fewer than four but more than one such Reference Treasury Dealer Quotations, the average of all of those quotations, or (iii) if the Independent Investment Banker obtains only one such Reference Treasury Dealer Quotation, such quotation.

 

“Independent Investment Banker” means one of Citigroup Global Markets Inc., J.P. Morgan Securities LLC, BNP Paribas Securities Corp. and SunTrust Robinson Humphrey, Inc. and their respective successors appointed by the Company to act as the Independent Investment Banker from time to time, or if any such firm is unwilling or unable to serve in that capacity, an independent investment banking institution of national standing appointed by the Company.

 

“Reference Treasury Dealer” means, with respect to any Redemption Date for this Note, (A) Citigroup Global Markets Inc., J.P. Morgan Securities LLC and BNP Paribas Securities Corp. and their respective successors, provided that, if any such firm ceases to be a primary U.S. Government securities dealer in the United States (a “Primary Treasury Dealer”), the Company will substitute another Primary Treasury Dealer and (B) one Primary Treasury Dealer selected by SunTrust Robinson Humphrey, Inc. and its successors.

 

“Reference Treasury Dealer Quotation” means, with respect to each Reference Treasury Dealer and any Redemption Date for this Note, the average, as determined by the Independent Investment Banker, of the bid and asked prices for the Comparable Treasury Issue (expressed in each case as a percentage of its principal amount) quoted in writing to the Independent Investment Banker by such Reference Treasury Dealer at 5:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the third business day preceding that Redemption Date.

 

Unless the Company defaults in payment of the Redemption Price, interest on this Note or portion hereof called for redemption will cease to accrue on the applicable Redemption Date.

 

All notices of redemption shall state the Redemption Date, the Redemption Price, if fewer than all the outstanding Notes are to be redeemed, the identification (and, in the case of partial redemption, the principal amounts) of Notes to be redeemed, that on the Redemption Date the Redemption Price will become due and payable upon each Note, or portion thereof, to be redeemed, that interest on each Note, or portion thereof, called for redemption will cease to accrue on and including the Redemption Date and the place or places where Notes may be surrendered for redemption. However, payment of the Redemption Price, together with accrued interest (if any) to but excluding the Redemption Date, for a Note for which a redemption notice has been delivered is

conditioned upon delivery of such Note (with, if the Company or the Trustee so requires, due endorsement by, or a written instrument of transfer in form satisfactory to the Company and the Trustee duly executed by, the Holder thereof or his attorney duly authorized in writing) to the office or agency of the Company maintained for that purpose, initially designated to be the Corporate Trust Office of the Trustee in Los Angeles, California, and at such additional offices or agencies as the Company may designate, at any time (whether prior to, on or after the Redemption Date) after delivery of the redemption notice.  Payment of the Redemption Price for the Note (or portion thereof to be redeemed), together with accrued interest to the Redemption Date, will be made on the later of the Redemption Date or promptly following the time of delivery of the Note.  If fewer than all of this Note, all other Notes with the same Original Issue Date, Interest Rate, Stated Maturity and other terms as this Note and all Additional Notes, if any, with the same Stated Maturity, Interest Rate and other terms (other than Original Issue Date, and, if applicable, issue price, date from which interest shall accrue and first payment of interest) as this Note are to be redeemed at any time, selection of such Notes and Additional Notes, if any, for redemption will be made, in the case of Notes evidenced by Global Notes, in accordance with the procedures of the applicable Depositary or, in the case of definitive Notes, by the Trustee by such method as the Trustee shall deem fair and appropriate. If this Note is to be redeemed in part, this Note must be redeemed in a minimum principal amount of $2,000 or a multiple of $1,000 in principal amount in excess thereof; provided that the unredeemed portion of this Note must be an authorized denomination.

 

In the event of redemption of this Note in part only, this Note must be surrendered at a place of payment therefor and the Company will execute, and the Trustee will authenticate and deliver to the Holder of this Note without service charge and upon cancellation hereof, a new Note or Notes of like tenor and terms, of any authorized denominations as requested by the Holder, in an aggregate principal amount equal to and in exchange for the unredeemed portion of the principal of this Note so surrendered.

 

For all purposes of this Note and the Indenture, unless the context otherwise requires, all provisions relating to the redemption by the Company of Notes shall relate, in the case of any Notes redeemed or to be redeemed by the Company only in part, to the portion of the principal amount of such Notes which has been or is to be so redeemed.

 

If an Event of Default with respect to the Notes shall occur and be continuing, the principal of the Notes may be declared or, in certain cases, automatically may become, due and payable in the manner and with the effect provided in the Indenture.

 

The Indenture permits, in certain circumstances therein specified, the amendment thereof without the consent of the Holders of the Securities. The Indenture also permits, with certain exceptions as therein provided, the amendment thereof and the modification of the rights and obligations under the Indenture of the Company and the rights of Holders of the Securities of each series to be affected under the Indenture at any time by the Company and the Trustee with the consent of the Holders of a majority in aggregate principal amount of the Securities at the time Outstanding of each series to be affected. The Indenture also contains provisions permitting, with certain exceptions as therein provided, the Holders of a majority in aggregate principal amount of the Securities of each series at the time Outstanding, on behalf of the Holders of all the Securities of such series, to waive compliance by the Company with certain provisions of the Indenture and certain past defaults under the Indenture and their consequences. Any such consent or waiver by the Holder of this Note shall be conclusive and binding upon such Holder and upon all future Holders of this Note and of any Note issued upon the registration of transfer hereof or in exchange herefor or in lieu hereof, whether or not notation of such consent or waiver is made upon this Note.

 

No reference herein to the Indenture and no provision of this Note or, subject to the provisions for satisfaction and discharge in Article Eight of the Indenture, of the Indenture, shall alter or impair the obligation of the Company, which is absolute and unconditional, to pay the principal of and interest on this Note at the times, place and rate, and in the coin or currency, herein prescribed.

 

As provided in the Indenture and subject to certain limitations therein set forth, the transfer of Notes is registrable in the register of Securities, upon surrender of a Note for registration of transfer at the office or agency

No service charge shall be made by the Company, the Trustee or the Registrar for any such registration of transfer or exchange, but the Company may require, subject to certain exceptions specified in the Indenture, payment of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge payable in connection therewith.

 

Prior to due presentment of this Note for registration of transfer, the Company, the Trustee and any agent of the Company or the Trustee may treat the Person in whose name this Note is registered as the owner hereof for all purposes, whether or not this Note be overdue, and neither the Company, the Trustee nor any such agent shall be affected by notice to the contrary.
