How to Vote Video Transcript

Bill Rogers (BR):
Welcome Shareholders,
(LVD cuts BR off mid-sentence)

Professor Ludwig Von Drake (LVD):
Friends, Relatives and esteemed Chairman, you are all probably wondering what we are doing here today…

Now let’s begin…

Bill Rogers (BR):
(BR interjects mid-sentence)
Woah! Professor Ludwig Von Drake slow down there!

On April 3, The Walt Disney Company will be hosting its Annual Meeting of Shareholders and we need you to all vote FOR your Board!

Over the coming weeks, you will be receiving your voting materials relating to the WHITE proxy card.  You may see them even sooner if you had consented to receiving them by email, so keep a watch on your inbox!

Professor Ludwig, why don’t you tell our shareholders how they can vote?

Yes, yes, today we are going to use the Von Drake Method.

Professor Ludwig, they don’t vote using those kinds of cards!

Voting is easy you can vote electronically or by good old fashioned mail

Note that if you type in the website address, you’ll be asked to provide the control number shown on the WHITE proxy card so be sure to have it handy. If you access the website using the QR code on the WHITE proxy card or the WHITE “VOTE NOW” button on your email, no control number will be needed.

Please vote all of your shares in all of your accounts – each account will have a separate control number specific to the WHITE proxy card.

All electronic votes have to be submitted no later than 11:59 pm on April 2, 2024.

If you hold shares in Disney Employee Plan, please note the earlier voting deadline indicated on your WHITE voting instruction form

Remember it’s important you vote only for Disney’s 12 nominees using the WHITE proxy card

Do not vote for the Trian Group or Blackwells nominees.

Voting this year is critical — no matter how many or how few shares you may own.

Professor Ludwig, what should the shareholders do with their blue and green proxy cards?

Uh huh,

He’s on the phone

Yes, I do not need the extended warranty

Well shareholders may simply discard them, please, do NOT use the BLUE or GREEN proxy cards

Got another difficult question for the professor?

Thank you, Professor, I think our shareholders are now well informed on how to vote for their Board.

Remember, it’s important you vote only for Disney’s 12 nominees using the WHITE proxy card

Do not vote for the Trian Group or Blackwells nominees

We thank you for supporting Disney.  If you have any questions about voting your shares, please call our proxy solicitor, Innisfree M&A Incorporated.

From Professor Ludwig Von Drake and I, thank you and goodbye!
