Create, by Disney.com, is an online entertainment portal that offers new ways to interact with Disney character art and graphics. Disney fans are now able to work with Disney art through applications that help create and design art work, comic books, music videos and much more. It’s also a great way to express creativity and communicate with other Disney fans.
One all-new feature of Create is the Group Wall, where thousands of original pieces of art are created around a central them and then added to a larger mosaic. The first group wall is themed around, what else but Mickey Mouse – the one that started it all. The Group Wall mosaic is updated in real time so users can watch as new artwork is added, and it features unique tools allowing guests to locate their artwork within the mosaic.
Here are just some of the features that are offered:
An innovative new community gallery called the “Group Wall” will launch on Disney.com Create. The first Group Wall theme is a “Tribute to Mickey” and will build a dynamic mosaic portrait of Mickey Mouse with user-generated content.
Create Apps allow children to design artwork, comic books, music videos, animated pets and more, all using Disney characters and graphics.
Craft a comic book using favorite Disney characters. Guests lay out pages using fun and wacky graphics, text and images to create their own rich narrative.

Since its launch, 1.2 million original pieces of content have been created within the Create environment.
