The House of Mouse disappointed some investors with its recent earnings results, but the company is still performing well where it counts -- and is loaded with potential for the future.

The stock market has not been the Happiest Place on Earth for Walt Disney (DIS 1.84%)investors lately. The entertainment giant's share price has shed 5% since releasing its fiscal 2016 second quarter results, which saw the company miss on both the top and bottom lines. The company's operations have taken a hit from cord-cutting, and its video game segment saw a year-over-year decline. Is there much to be bullish about with Disney going forward?

Motley Fool analyst David Kretzmann very much believes so. In his recent appearance on CNBC, David points out that Disney has great opportunities with the properties and characters currently under development. He also talks discusses how Disney is a long-term thinker, and as such, management is not overly concerned about quarter-to-quarter performance.
