Actually that was kind of risky.

What if one of the guests started to ask for a response to what’s going on in Florida?

I’m not certain he is even trained to handle a situation like that.

He could have blurted out an answer making things substantially worse.
actually he would just say, "everyone there is happy, it is crowded and people are spending, and they love Genie +!

This.

Now that the offer is accepted, it should dominate the portion of the news cycle that was hyper focused on Disney the last few weeks.

It should allow all the negative press to fade away.
nah, RCID issue will be in the news, along with all the rest of the "stuff". It ain't goin' away soon. People are p*ssed; on both sides of the aisle.

Negative press, sure. The bill was already passed though. I guess there is a chance that people will stop claiming on Twitter that they're boycotting Disney, much like they have been claiming they would boycott WDW. I try to follow the money

After reading the last few pages, all I can say to everyone is that my favoured source for news is objectively true and unbiased and your preferred source of news is fake and untrue...

As for Chapek, he’s undoubtedly a lame duck at this stage. He’s still there to soak up all the heat for the mess he made, soak up all the heat for making good with DeSantis and then enjoy a long and generously compensated retirement.

It is sad that TWDC powers that be do not remove the catalyst (B.C.) to begin to stabilize the turbulence. Stop the irritation.
I don't think this is the time to make a change even if one is coming. They have some storms to weather first, or else they would appear as if in crisis. Also they need a capable successor for any announcement to be viewed positively.

Agree! An extensive, comprehensive search needs to be mounted / initiated now for that elusive "capable successor". It will be tough but a broad search may be the answer, like outside of the TWDC ranks.

YAY! Elon is coming! 🤣
No changes until the stock hits the magical 2 digit dollar amount. Only $14 to go...

Doesn't Chapek's contract end early next year? While I think odds would favor him getting a renewal, the only way I can see him getting fired this "early" into his tenure is if Iger is back on board with coming back to be a transitional (3-5 year) CEO. That would give the board comfort the company is back in capable hands and Iger would hopefully work to foster a much better prepared successor.

Iger is done... unless enough dollar bills are waived at him. But I wouldn't bet on that last sentence. He didn't do it the first time around, I have no faith he'd do it on his Ego-Appeasement Tour 2023-25.
