  1. I have no problem with CEO’s spending millions on lavish homes. If they worked their way up, go for it. I have a problem with the fact this guy is running certain segments of the company into the ground in several ways, one prime example being gutting the extras and entertainment while simultaneously claiming the “cast members are the entertainment”. If you want to continue to charge full price, then add some of the entertainment back, whether paid (like the Luau, HDDR, dessert parties) or free (Parades, fireworks, more of the Epcot bands, trolley show, etc., even if they require a reservation of sorts at the beginning) as well as resort entertainment (GFSO, torch lighting at Poly). P & R division lost billions last year BUT the cuts and penny pinching were starting before the onset of the Covid closure. Raising the price and continuing the cuts is a bit of a stinger. As for Disney holding off on things like fireworks, etc., I suspect they are fine with using “health & safety” protocols as an excuse but if they really wanted to do so, they could figure it out. They used to get everyone out of the parks in order to have hard ticket parties, or Moonlight Magic events which include fireworks and characters and had far fewer people. They could figure it out and bring these things back. It is not rocket science to figure out ways to adapt. Health and safety is a good excuse, (and was a necessary protocol for the earlier reopening months) but they also sell doughnuts the size of a child’s head, and cupcakes with 5 inches of frosting, so I am not sure how much at this point this is about “health and safety” vs. “not getting sued” and “not having to pay for fireworks, free entertainment and such”. If they were really working out ways to move forward with these things (and FL has no restrictions on this), then I would be happy if he bought a 20 million dollar house. But you are the CEO. Figure out ways to move forward more effectively, and earn it.

  2. It bothers me that a good number of his employees have to receive government subsidies to survive and he lives in a palace. We,the taxpayers, pay for the subsidies. That is wrong. Disney should be made to pay employees enough so that government subsidies are not not necessary to keep them in a livable income.

  3. It annoys me to read this when I think about how cast members have struggled to make ends meet during the pandemic, yet he chooses to ‘upgrade’ to a larger multi-million dollar home from his previous estate. Doesn’t settle well with me. We also heard previously about other Disney execs and their million-dollar bonuses they received during the pandemic. Seems quite excessive to me when others struggled to put food on the table.
