Will the Disney Company Change? I doubt It after what I have read.
Iger is just Eisner's Goon.

I'm not sure what to make of this news. It isn't like we really know how Iger will act on his own. He has been Eisner's man for a very long time. However, he also has a lot to prove. In order to protect the stock, he'll need to set forth an agenda for growth and show that he is not an extension of Eisner.
We'll know in the morning what the stock market thinks. The other big question is what will happen to Eisner. Will he go right away? Will he get a spot on the board? I'm VERY interested to see what happens.
Agh! I can only hope that he will be somewhat better than Eisner. I guess that's what everyone can really hope for.
They hail from the same camps, pretty much. One must remember that Eisner, for the first several years of his tenure was full of creative ideas and financial willingness. It was after several bad business decisions (read: ABC) that things really started to go downhill. He has had to make up for the financial downfall and the aftermath of September 11, 2001. He handled these situations unfavorably.
Perhaps Iger will do the same thing. For the first several years, he could be full of new ideas. Let's hope the economic atmosphere stays nice, and maybe we'll see a Disney turnaround!
I do think Eisner will throw in the towel, either that or he will be treated as an "Al Gore" demanding a recount....
Iger is the ONLY person available with the experiance to run Disney right now and frankly he has seen Eisners ways so its likely he will not repeat the micromanaging and lying that Eisner was so famous for.
And I am just guessing he will want to revitalize ABC first off.
