Disney Cashes In On The Osmonds Family Act Formula!

Disney, the empire that Walt Disney built back in the early 1940′s-50′s has really hit its stride lately.

With Hannah Montana, The Jonas Brothers, and Zack Ephron just to name a few Disney is raking in millions of dollars annually throug their record sales. A lot of the credit goes to their formula in packaging good clean family entertainment while keeping up with the current trends in fashion and music.
