No, why would they be evil? a lot of people say that Disney is an evil cooperation, but Disneyland rocks!

Of course it is not!
Ever heard of Puritanism - you can do anything you want as long as you don't enjoy yourself - for then it becomes a sin!
Enjoy! Why did God give you the capacity for joy if He did not intend you to use it?
He's not MEAN you know - and He's not SMALL MINDED - even though many folk would like to make him so - HE IS NOT!
It's like saying that the Harry Potter books are evil - I cannot believe that any intelligent person could read the books without reaching my conclusion - that they encourage and reward only the finest (almost 'lost') qualities in their characters and bring out the best in the reader as well - old or young.
It is the ignorant,. the prejudiced and the just plain stupid (who rely on hearsay rather than first hand evidence of their own 'homework') who say bad stuff about HP and our own wondrous JK (I used to work in her home town - wonder if I ever saw her toddling around with her mum etc.?)
HAVE FUN! IT'S GOOD FOR YOU!

So...does your friend feel this way for religious reasons? Is that why? It could be because Disney frequently makes movies that contain magic, and then make amusement rides from those movies. That may be part of it. Some Christians are very much against magic of any kind; some believe anything that has to do with magic is evil.
I wonder...wouldn't you have more luck asking your friend why she believes this?

look at all the evil things in all the disney movies.
There is sorcery, idolatry, etc. That's so Raven is disney and she has "psycic visions"; evil. I went to Disney World and I saw all kinds of demonic things. One in particular is the Kali River Rapids; It has an Asian theme and as ur walking up to get to the ride there is a temple of some sort, w/ scary looking idols w/ masks in there. And on the ride there are statues of idols all along the ride. It's things like that. People don't believe that it's demonic, that it's "just kid stuff" Demons and the devil rely on people to believe that sort of stuff so they can have free reign.

Your friend is confused and will be a bad influence on you if you keep associating with them. Cut all ties. Pretend that you are an NFL rookie and they are the ghetto-friends you had growing up. Run like the wind and do not look back. The fact that you are questioning shows that there is still hope, but you have to act now.

Perhaps it's because of the sinful people working behind the scenes for their own agendas! (Not Disneyland itself!) Walt Disney, if he were alive today would fire all who are involved in such sinful acts as they are doing! The land? It is only geography that we, as sinners destroy. Jesus made a wonderful earth!

She probably thinks they're evil because of the commercialism and the greed but if you look at it that way that would make the catholic church evil too. Seeing as how there are starving and dying children in this world and they think it's more important to build million dollar churches for the ones that are (SAVED).

Perhaps they consider it too worldly. Really, without more info I can only guess. You're asking for us to explain someone's personal motives. For all I know she just thinks Mickey Mouse is the anti-Christ.

They are of the world, and the devil delivers the things of the world. They seek mammon, it is their sole purpose to gain riches and serve mammon.
And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.
Luke 4:5-8 (KJV)

She probably believes it because they don't prohibit gay people. Disney, Inc. is evil, but only for the standard corporate reasons.
