Way back in the days of hostile takeovers and culture change at Disney, the company was small enough for the CEO and President to not only keep track of Disneyland, but personally intervene and make it the sparkling jewel in the crow of Disney. But Disney has bloated up to corporation proportions and now there are so many levels of management for the parks, I don't even think Iger cares anymore.
The thing is, Disneyland alone has Ed Grier, Al Weiss, and Jay Rasulo running the place. It is no longer run by one person and if you want to do something, you have to go through 2 or 3 other people.
These positions are fairly new and I think they are finally having an impact on Disneyland. The one-size-fits-all nature of Disney theme parks nowadays has shown that there are so many Disney parks in the world nowadays, they want to streamline the process of running them.
I think it will only get worse as more parks open and as the management piles on. Sadly, I think that Paul Pressler was just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Disneyland bungling. Matt Ouimet left probably out of frustration, and that doesn't bode well for the future of Disneyland.
Hopefully I'm wrong about it, but it just seems that 3 people running Disneyland (2 of them running a dozen other resorts too) isn't a good thing.
