Disney announced very strong earnings late this week, sending shares up--does that mean it's too late to invest in the House of Mouse?

Shares of media powerhouse Disney (DIS -1.04%) were sent skyward earlier this week after it reported a very strong first quarter. The company's strongest area was its film studios segment, which saw operating income increase 75% thanks to the hit movie Frozen. But with Frozen leaving theaters soon, will Disney be in trouble?

In this segment of the Motley Fool's consumer goods show, Consumer Countdown, CG analyst Michael Finarelli joins host Mark Reeth to discuss what lies ahead for Disney and if the company's brand strength makes it a solid investment choice.
