Hi Fellow Fools,

Which of these two childhood memory makers is a better value today:

"Into each life some rain must fall."
-- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

This quote is true of life, and equally true for investors. At some point, even the best of companies face challenges that put the future into question. The companies facing off today are each at a crossroads. Entertainment juggernaut The Walt Disney Company (NYSE:DIS) has been plagued by concerns over cord-cutting and falling subscriber numbers for the company's flagship ESPN sports network. Leading purveyor of toys Mattel Inc. (NASDAQ:MAT) has seen sales of its iconic brands like Barbie, American Girl, and Fisher-Price fall, as the company failed to keep in touch with children's changing tastes and play habits.

For investors looking for a better long-term play, the choice seems obvious, but let's dig a little deeper before we decide which is a better choice for investors today.
