A former Walt Disney Co. accountant has accused the company of overstating revenue for years and has filed a series of whistleblower tips with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

Sandra Kuba, previously a senior financial analyst who worked for Disney for 18 years, said employees in the parks division systematically overstated revenue by billions of dollars, according to MarketWatch, which said it reviewed the filings.
