    Who should run Disney?

    This topic has been discussed alot and Bob Iger is the new man. Who do you think should hold the reins? Maybe you liked Michael Eisner? Maybe a Disney Character should run it?

    If you could choose someone (or a partnership) today who would it be?

    I start by saying...

    John Lassiter with Bob Iger and a new board of directors.

    Unfortunately I have never been very up on Disney politics. I just know NOT EISNER.

    Is there anyone in the Disney family who would be capable of handling it and doing a good job? I think it would be nice if there could be a Disney name in there, and probably make Walt happy -if such a person exists.

With our hands in everything from childrens toys to ABC tv, I believe that someone with experience in ALL of these lines of business would be vastly preferable.

    they need to hide some golden tickets in food products in the park, give a tour of the park to the kids that find the tickets, and pick an innocent, loving child to run the company...

    everyone over the age of 9 (including michael Jackson) is not elligible...

    The park would be spotless and in perfect repair, all attractions would live up to Walt's dream.

    hey who pays more attention to the minute details than we do?

    My vote is for a rather obscure gentleman named John Thompson, who rose to head of purchasing for Disney, and had worked for him from before the DL opening.

    While retired now, he had a good feel for the books, and knew the difference between what was right, and what worked, and what was wrong, and what didn't work.

    He's also an old friend...

    I thought that Peter Chernin (President of News Corp) should have gotten the job... His name was on the short list... But it meant completely changning all the managers undernieth him... Eisner's board would not have like that...
