    Default Disney Adventures Magazine to End After November 2007 Issue

    Disney Publishing to End Its 'Adventures'

    Disney Publishing Worldwide will fold its Disney Adventures with the November issue to focus on new magazine and book efforts, a company spokesperson said.

    Publisher Mary Beth Wright will stay at Disney Publishing as the publisher of parenting title FamilyFun, which Disney continues to publish, along with Wondertime (where Dave Mevorah is publisher). She became the publisher of both titles last year. The fate of the editor and other staffers has not been determined.

    Subscribers will be offered a refund or a subscription to one of the other Disney Publishing titles.

    Disney Adventures is the second casualty in the kid magazine category this year since MTV Networks folded its 638,679-circ Nick Jr. Family magazine with the April issue.

    The Disney magazine launched in 1990 for kids ages 6-14. Disney Adventures reported 97.9 ad pages in the first half of this year, an increase of 4.5 percent vs. the year-ago period, according to Publishers Information Bureau. The title had a mostly subscriber-based circ of 1.2 million, per its most recent BPA audit of December 2006.

    I have two of the very early editions from when I was a kid so it's weird that it's not going to exist anymore.

    D will be so disappointed. We switched over to Disney Adventures when they did away with the Disney magazine.

    My DD9 will be upset also! She loves this magazine. We've never gotten a subscription, but she loves to look for it in the grocery store, it's kind of like a treasure hunt for her.

    The oldest issue still in my collection's got a Tyrannosaurus Rex on the front. Think it's dated to about 1994 or 1995.

    It's gonna be a sad world without DA. I'd read it for years and years through my early childhood, getting the new issue every time from the newsstand when I could. Who knows...my old issues might be collector's items now!

    I had asked Roger Landridge (The cartoonist of the Muppet comics), and he said they may put the completed strips in the last issue. Or, they might be in another publication. Though he said there is a possibility that they might show up on his blog-

    Rats! My kids have a subscription and they fight over who gets to read it first when it comes in the mail. They're going to be very upset. Me, too -- I'm for anything that gets either of them reading!

    I never look back, darling! It distracts from the now.
