The pandemic keeps Disney from operating at full capacity, but can it still outpace Netflix?

In this video, I will go over Walt Disney's (DIS 3.69%) earnings report, which crushed fiscal first-quarter estimates. How does it compare to Netflix (NFLX 5.03%)? Is Disney stock a better investment than Netflix in the longer term? With parks still mostly closed around the world, Disney will certainly benefit when the world begins to return to normal and parks can operate at full capacity.

But it seems like nothing can stop the entertainment mammoth. The Disney+ streaming platform continues to grow, with new content coming this year such as Marvel's The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and more Star Wars content.
