This page describes the family of Elias Disney (son of Kepple Disney and Mary Richardson Disney), the father of Walter Elias "Walt" Disney.

The family name, originally d'Isigny ("from Isigny"), is of Norman French derivation, coming from the canton of Isigny-sur-Mer. The Disneys, among others, descended from Normans who settled in Normandy around the 11th century.[citation needed]
