This is probably good for Marvel since Disney can give them the publicity that Quesada (and DC too) has been clamoring for (to put it nicely) for years now.

Will this affect them creatively? I doubt it, though I kinda hope so. There doesn't seem to be much heart in comics these days, more like some big corporate agenda.

Is this good for Disney? Seems like they took a bit of a hit on the stock market this morning. If this continues will this change their minds?

That is just a function of stock market dynamics. The acquiring company always takes an immediate hit. They have to spend money to acquire, spending money always affects profits. The company being bought, always appreciates in value. This should help Disney's long term profitability, and be reflected in its share price over time.
