The Walt Disney Company, a corporation duly organized and existing under the laws of the State of Delaware (herein referred to as the Company), for value received, hereby promises to pay to CEDE & CO., or registered assigns, the principal sum of  dollars ($[●]) on [●], [●] (the Maturity Date) and to pay interest thereon from [●], 2019 or from the most recent Interest Payment Date (as defined below) to which interest has been paid or duly provided for, semi-annually in arrears in equal installments on  and  of each year (each, an Interest Payment Date), commencing on [●], [●], at the rate of [●]% per annum, until the principal hereof is paid or made available for payment. Interest payments on this Note will include interest accrued to but excluding the Interest Payment Date or Maturity Date, as the case may be. The interest so payable, and punctually paid or duly provided for, on any Interest Payment Date will, as provided in the Indenture (as defined on the other side of this Note), be paid to the Person in whose name this Note (or one or more Predecessor Securities) is registered at the close of business on the preceding [●] or [●] (each, a Regular Record Date), as the case may be (whether or not any such Regular Record Date is a Business Day (as defined on the other side of this Note)), next preceding such Interest Payment Date, provided, that, if the Regular Record Date for the first Interest Payment Date would be a date prior to [●], 2019, the Regular Record Date for such first Interest Payment Date will be the day immediately preceding such first Interest Payment Date (whether or not such day is a Business Day). If any Interest Payment Date, the Maturity Date or any other date on which a payment on the Notes is due is not a Business Day, the payment due on such Interest Payment Date, Maturity Date or other date, as applicable, will be made on the next succeeding Business Day with the same force and effect as if made on such Interest Payment Date, Maturity Date or other date, as applicable, and no additional interest shall accrue on the amount so payable for the period from and after such Interest Payment Date, Maturity Date or other date, as the case may be, to such next succeeding Business Day. Interest on the Notes will be computed on the basis of a 360-day year comprised of twelve 30-day months.
Except as otherwise provided in the Indenture, any interest not punctually paid or duly provided for on any Interest Payment Date (herein called Defaulted Interest) will forthwith cease to be payable to the Holder on the Regular Record Date with respect to such Interest Payment Date and may either be paid to the Person in whose name this Note (or one or more Predecessor Securities) is registered at the close of business on a Special Record Date for the payment of such Defaulted Interest to be fixed by the Trustee (as defined on the other side of this Note), notice of which shall be given to Holders of Notes not less than 10 days prior to such Special Record Date, or be paid at any time in any other lawful manner not inconsistent with the requirements of any securities exchange on which the Notes may be listed, and upon such notice as may be required by such exchange, all as more fully provided in the Indenture.

This Note is one of a duly authorized series of Securities of the Company (which term includes any successor corporation under the Indenture hereinafter referred to) issued and to be issued pursuant to such Indenture and designated by the Company as its [●]% Notes due [●] (the Notes). The Indenture does not limit the aggregate principal amount of the Securities which may be issued thereunder.
The Company issued this Note pursuant to an Indenture, dated as of March 20, 2019 (herein called the Indenture), among the Company, TWDC Enterprises 18 Corp., a Delaware Corporation, as guarantor and Citibank, N.A., as trustee (herein called the Trustee, which term includes any successor trustee under the Indenture), to which Indenture and all indentures supplemental thereto reference is hereby made for a statement of the respective rights, limitations of rights, duties and immunities thereunder of the Company, each Guarantor, the Trustee and Holders of the Notes and of the terms upon which the Notes are, and are to be, authenticated and delivered.
The Notes are in registered form, without coupons, in denominations of $2,000 principal amount and integral multiple of $1,000 in excess thereof.

The Company may from time to time, without notice to or the consent of Holders of the Notes, issue additional Notes (Additional Notes) ranking pari passu with, and with the same terms and provisions as, the Notes originally issued on [●], 2019 (except for the date of original issuance, and, if applicable, the date from which interest shall accrue, the first interest payment date, the offering and sale prices thereof and restrictions on transfer). Any such Additional Notes, together with the Notes originally issued on [●], 2019, will constitute a single series of Securities under the Indenture and will vote together as a single class on all matters to be voted on by the Holders of the Notes under the Indenture.

The Indenture also contains provisions permitting, with certain exceptions as therein provided, the Holders of at least a majority in aggregate principal amount of the Outstanding Securities of any series to, by written consent, waive compliance by the Company or any Guarantor with any provision of the Indenture (but solely insofar as such provision relates to the Securities of such series) or any provision of the Securities of such series. Any such consent or waiver by the Holder of this Note shall be conclusive and binding upon such Holder and upon all future Holders of this Note and of any Note issued upon the registration of transfer hereof or in exchange herefor or in lieu hereof, whether or not notation of such consent or waiver is made upon this Note.
