According to Jason Garcia of The Orlando Sentinel:

One of Walt Disney World’s four theme parks is about to get a new head executive.

Val Bunting, the Walt Disney World vice president in charge of Disney’s Animal Kingdom, is changing jobs to become general manager at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort. A Disney spokeswoman said the move is Bunting’s choice, as Bunting wants to move into the resort side of the business.

Bunting has been the Animal Kingdom vice president since October 2007. The move will take effect once Disney names her successor.
