About

Didney Worl is an image macro series featuring various characters from animated films produced by Disney and the phrase “Didney Worl,” which is an unusual phonetic transcription of the Disney World resort in Orlando, Florida. Similar to Derp image macros, the characters are typically shown making wall-eyed expressions.
