    Seems as though his time has already come and gone, no?

    ^No, explodingboy, his time has not come and gone.

    Thomas Staggs has zero experience in entertainment involving stories, other than rides,
    while Steve Burke is helping to run a TV network and a movie studio,
    and has presided over the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal Orlando.
    I'd feel better if he were leading the move of Marvel and (more) Star Wars into Disney's resorts.

    Steve Burke also has experience with fighting Disney over its channel pricing and trying to take it over to split it apart.
