I'd like former Disney exec., Universal's Steve "the builder" Burke to take over as CEO.
Apparently the current Chairman of Disney's Board of Directors, Bob Iger, loves the current CEO of Disney, the same Bob Iger.
Thomas Staggs (a $10 million a year guy?) seemed to have been edging out Jay Rasulo as the front-runner to become Disney's next CEO, but he lacks any storytelling/real studio experience, and Iger might not mind having Staggs seen as the billion-dollar MagicBand guy. Iger was supposed to have stepped down, but Disney's Iger-headed board recently decided to keep Iger on as CEO for a few more years.
The short-term goal of Bob Iger earning another 100-300 million
is currently the ultimate goal of Walt Disney's company.
Things I'd like fixed ASAP.
All of WDW.
Disneyland's Tomorrowland and parking, especially for CMs.
Disney Cruise Line CMs no longer working 77 hours a week or 4 consecutive months without one day off. (They are under Staggs and Iger, but not under American labor laws. Scary.)
Disneyland Paris with a DCA makeover Xs 2, especially for the their studios, by far the worst Disney park.
Prediction: someone who loves Disney World unconditionally
and who knows nothing about Roy's public letter to Michael Eisner
will defend Disney's current leaders.
Let's use this thread to educate and to try to be as persuasive as "a Disney spokesperson."
(Any thread with Mr. W's posts is, to me, worth reading.)
Save Disney from what? It's not a museum!!! So why do people want to keep it that way? Tomorrowland has to be preserved, from?
Meh. No one wants to preserve it as a museum. Find a poster who wants that.
What posters would like is an improving Disneyland. Better and better each time one goes.
With half the guests not demanding this want with their wallets (because their admission cost is amortized using a declining balance method), one can easily see why DL management doesn't bother to do anything to improve DL.
