I don't see Disney buying Sony Pictures. The two companies just don't have matching strategies and the Sony Pictures library just doesn't isn't compatible with the Disney library the way Marvel Studios, the Muppets Studio, and Lucasfilm do.

However, considering the financial problems that Sony is under, I wouldn't be surprised to see Sony either team up with Disney on the Amazing Spider-Man 2 in order to reduce the cost burden (which Sony is starting to do) or sell the film rights to Spider-Man (along with the home video rights to the Muppets Take Manhattan and Muppets from Space) to Disney.

Ghost Rider, Disney will just probably let those rights revert, there's no need to pay money for the rights that Sony most likely has no desire to use anymore anyways.
