Disney was born Melissa Femling on November 20, 1970, the daughter of Louise Gallagher, an occasional film actress, and Carl Femling, a writer. She has a familial connection to film and television; her maternal grandmother, Toy Gallagher, was a silent film actress who appeared in several films in the 1920s, and she has claimed to be a distant relative of American film producer and businessman Walt Disney.
Disney is one of a small number of women who do voice-over work for movie trailers. The trailer for Gone in 60 Seconds, which she voiced in 2000, was one of the first by a major film studio to use a female voice.
She voices the title character Ginger Foutley in the animated cartoon As Told by Ginger. She is also known for her role as Elora the Faun in Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage! and as Courtney Gears (a parody of Britney Spears) in Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal.
