If you are new to Disney fandom, you may have missed out on Bob Iger’s previous time as Disney’s CEO. However, many long-time Disney fans are at least somewhat familiar with his leadership. This is partly because he spent a long time, 15 years to be exact, serving as CEO. During that time, he became known for a strategic vision focused on creative excellence, technological innovation, and international growth.

Now Bob Iger is committed to serving as CEO of the Walt Disney Company for two years. The Walt Disney Company has already updated its leadership page listing him as Chief Executive Officer. It has also been stated that he will work closely with the board in developing a successor.

  1. Discontinue Genie+ and return Fastpass Please! Genie+ really separates the have and have-nots and it has me thinking twice about going to DW. I had a negative experience with a similar system in six flags. I was next in line for the back of a rollercoaster for over an hour as those who paid for the skip the line pass got the spot!

  2. They need to stop pushing adult subjects in every movie and animated feature. They could made pg13 or rated movies all they want.

  3. Woke has become a catch all that really means nothing at this point. What are you against specifically and why? Teaching about slavery and the civil rights movement? Why? Teaching about racism? Why? Talking about LGBTQ? Why?

  4. who cares if theyre ‘woke’ or mot. what people care about is the experience and that experience has suffered last few years. hopefully iger will peal back some of the profit-at-all-costs attitude and make it a little more disney-like.

  5. I’ll believe Disney is on the road to getting better when they really clean house and also lose their woke policies. Disney as my family destination at the parks and online is over until that happens.
    This is coming from a family that has spent well over $100k at Disney World for vacations through the years.
