Orlando Sentinel’s Central Florida 100: DISNEY MAGIC

, , Comments Off on Orlando Sentinel’s Central Florida 100: DISNEY MAGIC

Disney’s board last week dispatched Bob Chapek and brought back former CEO Bob Iger. The New York Times shed light on the firing which had gained momentum over the past two years with 117,000 signatures on a petition seeking his ouster. The issue was apparently not just the $1.5 billion loss at Disney+, the pay dispute with actress Scarlett Johansson, or Chapek’s messy dispute with Gov. Ron DeSantis; it was Chapek himself. When Walt opened Disneyland in 1955, he envisioned a special place with a magical relationship with its guests. It lost some of that magic under Mr. Chapek and Mr. Iger’s job is to get it back.
