    Imagineering Speculation?

    So it looks like this new division is separate from Imagineering? Barbara Bouza also updated her LinkedIn. She used to be President of Business Ops and Project Delivery but now it shows that she is President of WDI Design and Delivery. (Bob Weis was previously President WDI Design)

    It was called a bugs life

    Definitely an unusual situation. One that they didn’t immediately get him offstage once he started causing an scene. And second I don’t know if the managers realized he was live streaming because that also isn’t allowed. He is fortunate that the LEO’s were cool and didn’t cite him for not...

    “Walt Disney began the Ambassador Program in 1965. At the time, Walt's schedule was overwhelmed with requests for his time and personal appearances.

    Police Presence at Epcot Resort Area

    It would only be listed as stolen vehicle if they recovered the vehicle or someone reportedly it stolen. They could be searching for a stolen vehicle and come across a suspect (as in this case) who matches the description. This is listed as a “Suspicious Person” call until they can positively...

    News Chapek FIRED, Iger New CEO

    They combined the two so as to hid the exact Consumer Products numbers. Just like they rolled up Interactive Media into Consumer Products. Makes it easier to avoid talking specifics about consumer products which is a tough industry to be successful in. The Parks have enough margin to absorb it.

    News Walt Disney Imagineering makes organizational changes and new creative leads at the theme parks

    I’m not sure that “shake-up” is the right word. Kareem Daniels is just being “promoted” while continuing to be groomed to take the chairman role if Chapek get some promoted/leaves. The bigger thing is this Executive Design & Delivery role that’s being added. No doubt a sacrificial role that...

    News Catherine Powell's position eliminated

    It doesn’t look like it as he is still shown on the DPECP leadership page while Catherine is gone. Michael’s role is slightly different because the Asia parks aren’t controlled directly by Disney. You need someone on the ground to help push through things like expansions, funding, etc and work...

    Magic kingdom power surge 8/31/19

    If it was truly just a surge and power was restored soon after it’s the result of how fast they can power the rides back up. Dumbo/ Small world are fairly easy while other like the mountains require engineering to go through and power the blocks back up. They may only be 3-4 CM per zone so they...

    News Major Hurricane Dorian impacts to Walt Disney World 2019

    At most will be a tropical storm. With tropical systems there’s no lightning which will allow most outdoor rides to continue operations. Really only the ferry could be closed due to winds if they get that high. So minimal to no impact at all.
