Disney stock certificates off to Never Never Land

By The Associated Press

Stock certificates issued by The Walt Disney Co. will soon be a thing of the past.

The stock, which features images of Dumbo, Bambi, Mickey Mouse, Cinderella and other Disney animated characters, have long been a collector's item and are pitched by numerous online vendors as a way to teach children about investing.

However, U.S. corporations have been switching to electronic stocks for years, and on Oct. 16, Disney will follow suit.

Given their popularity, there may be a rush to buy with one week remaining to do so.
