Nahhh…I don’t think so.Speaking of "deep Iger conspiracy theories", what if Iger want's to reduce Disney's contribution to Florida GDP? What if the brand strategy is on-target? Dis-anti-s want's Florida to look like an economic success story and claim he can extend it to the U.S.
A possible explanation for the lack of new construction starts as well. Design work is in progress in California, but the projects won't be started in FL until after the election.
What they’re doing in Florida seems pretty obvious.
They decided they would increase prices - nearly three fold under Iger - and the people went along with it and even celebrated it.
So that automatically reduced investment. Why pay more when they were making more? Built almost nothing for the first 8 years…nothing like Eisner…and then have slow rolled the building plan the last 10…
Long story short: they planned to be done spending when tron opened. Bob’s legacy was complete.
But it doesn’t work that way…and all that crap has them back to flush or falling behind again…
And boy Comcast sure has taken the thunder out of them for the last 10. Best themed lands…6 new hotels and counting and a gigantic new park.
