Using trademarks without infringing copyrights

I would like to start a coloring page website with coloring pages of different characters (such as Shrek, Mickey Mouse) that are registered trademarks. There are millions of such websites and I am wondering if this is not copyright infringement? If I add a disclaimer to the site such as "All characters and logos on this site are property of their registered trademarks which are in no way affiliated with this site. " would that be enough?
If it is not enough should I add such a disclaimer to each printable coloring page? For example on a coloring page for Cars I could add the following line "Cars the movie and its characters are registered trademarks of Disney. This site is in no way affiliated with Disney."
Is that enough to prevent any problems?
Thanks in advance!
