When Bob Iger retired in February 2020, Bob Chapek took his place as CEO of The Walt Disney Company. He took charge right before the parks closed in March of 2020 due to the pandemic. Chapek has been in charge for over two years, overseeing the parks, entertainment, and more.

Over the past year, in particular, many Disney fans have wondered if Chapek’s days are numbered at the Walt Disney Company. Recently, the Disney Board voted unanimously to extend Bob Chapek’s contract for three more years. Check out the full details and Chapek’s statement HERE and his huge pay raise HERE.

Bob Chapek, Chief Executive Officer, The Walt Disney Company, shares the following reasons for success: “Our strong results in the second quarter, including fantastic performance at our domestic parks and continued growth of our streaming services once again prove that we are in a league of our own. Stockholders were happy about increased revenue, but that doesn’t tell Chapek’s entire story.

Fans Thoughts

Many Disney fans are not fans of Chapek. He’s earned a penny pinching reputation with only the bottom line in mind. While Chapek brags about park pass reservations “exceeding expectations” most fans want them and the 2:00pm park hopping rule to go away. Also, a few months ago, he called Annual Passholders “unfavorable guests.

Recently, we shared that the former popular CEO, Bob Iger, is NOT a fan. He even goes as far as saying having Bob Chapek as Disney’s CEO is his biggest regret.

Bob Iger is not a fan of Chapek.

Destination D23 announces all kinds of exciting new projects along with updates to existing ones. There will also be some surprises along the way!

In November, when the event was first announced Disney CEO Bob Chapek was announced to be in attendance for the official welcome. However, Bob Chapek’s name was removed from the lineup. Now, he is absent from another huge Disney event.

The Disney Legends Award is given to people who have made outstanding contributions to the Disney legacy. This year’s honoree’s include: Anthony Anderson, Kristen Bell, Chadwick Boseman, Rob’t Coltrin, Patrick Dempsey, Robert Price “Bob” Foster, Jonathan Groff, Don Hahn, Josh Gad, Doris Hardoon, Idina Menzel, Chris Montan, and Ellen Pompeo.

As you can see it’s quite an impressive list of people being honored at this award ceremony. However, Chapek will not be hosting it! Instead, the charming Emmy Award winner Tracee Ellis Ross will host the event.

Bob Chapek will not be hosting the Disney Legends Award.

Last time, he cited Bob Iger as the reason he missed the D23 event, but why is he not hosting this one? Is it because he lacks personality, or is Disney afraid he won’t have a positive reaction to attendees?

What are your thoughts on Chapek? Why do you think he isn’t hosting this event? Please let us know in the comments below and on Facebook.

  1. Something important probably came up. It happens. I’m sure he’ll reval further details. Also I’d that one photo at Disneyland was him then maybe he can show himself when he has the time. In fact he was a bit more prominent with that prior to him being in charge. I think maybe this can be added in there. Also maybe if yo6 line yoy can send a letter asking for an interview to be done with him. Plus he had a cool new beard now.

  2. Probably didn’t put that as well as I could.
    You can buy a sports team for example. You can buy the bricks and mortar but you can’t buy what makes it was it is. You can’t buy the years of passion. You can’t buy the memories, laughter and tears. You can’t buy it’s soul. Unfortunately Disney has sold it’s soul to the highest bidder.

  3. Hardly a surprise. Just shows the disconnect between peoples love for Disney and the monetisation of the love for Disney. Form of exploitation I guess. But hey it’s a Company. We invest with memories and passion they invest with cash flow. The ideology has gone. It’s just a business. No such thing as magic anymore.
