    Re: new D land prez Michael Colglazier is cool!

    I like the fact that he's trying and making an effort. That makes me feel better and I hope he does a really great job during his time here.

    What does any of that have to with a guy who's been on the job for a few days?

    Not sure attending a Micechat event qualifies him as being cool...but the thought of the gesture is certainly not lost on me; a good start with being a visible figurehead within the Disney organization.

    Re: new D land prez Michael Colglazier is cool!

    And he gave us all Golden Horseshoe Review soundtrack cd's! He's won my vote... with gifts!


    Seriously though, hearing him talk to us and introduce himself isn't a sign of what kind of job he'll do, but it shows me that he is decent guy willing to come out on a Saturday morning to tell us that he loves Disneyland and will do what he can to keep us loving Disneyland also.

    Let's not all jump to conclusions on what kind of PR person told him to do this. The important thing is that he did.

    So to tie it back to the subject of the thread... Michael Colglazier IS cool.

    Until he can actually have an impact. If he came in announcing a new Pixar ride it most likely would have had far more input from Kalogridis, just like everything you listed in your previous post.

    Why does it have to be either? the president of Disneyland is pretty much a meaningless and powerless position. A figurehead. He's just the head PR guy for DLR.

    Shall we go down the list of all the PR reps that post on Twitter and the Disney Parks Blog and check off the ones we like and the ones we don't? Is that really helpful in any way?

    Re: new D land prez Michael Colglazier is cool!

    I'm sure the reports that Michael is a "personable and genuinely friendly family man" are true. So far as Disney's motives in having him appear bearing gifts at a MiceChat event, however, the unfortunate reality is that Disney's previous frontal attacks on the social media in general and MiceChat in particular give them rather low credibility in this regard.

    Those who wish to believe that Michael's appearance was unscripted and genuine, and in no way was an attempt to buy off fan criticism, are free to do so.

    Others may prefer to remember that he is taking his orders from the same corporation that is currently being discussed in this thread.

    Why put a negative spin on his attending a Micechat event?

    From everything I've read about him, Michael Colglazier is an excellent leader and I'm grateful we have him.

    And I expect WDW to clean up its act under the leadership of George K., unless Thomas Staggs is so obsessed with his $800,000,000 MyMagic+ bracelecuffs that he prevents George K. from spending $ on no brainer improvements.
    This is why we must remain neutral on his attendance at the event. People should judge him based on action, not PR stunts. If he truly cares about the fans and the park, he has to prove it over the course of his position at the resort. This one event shouldn't positively or negatively sway the community.

    Unfortunately, he is more than just a figurehead as he has control over what funding will be allocated towards park improvements. Decades ago, park management was just operational management. They just operated the parks but didn't have power over what went into them.

    The system, as it stands now, allows the president to dictate every aspect of how the parks are run, what attractions can be applied and other similar control.

    It was evident when Pressler ran the park and everything went down the tubes - attractions, maintenance, food, merchandise, etc. When Ouimet took over at Disneyland, he infused it with better funding in order to get into shape for the 50th.

    So, it really depends on the attitude of the current president as to how much he wants to invest in the park he's in charge of. It CAN be beneficial if he has the right attitude.
