Parks and Resorts Chairman Bob Chapek is Main Contender to Replace Bob Iger

With Bob Iger set to retire from the Walt Disney Company throne in 19 months, experts are saying that odds are high that Disney Parks Chief Executive Bob Chapek will be the man to replace him.

Whilst, from a business point of view, this seems like a sound move – with Shanghai turning a high profit in it’s first year – to fans, it seems like a controversial fit for the position.

He has been at the helm of many successful projects in the parks, with ideas such as tiered pricing, MaxPass and the introduction of more hard-ticket events in the parks since his introduction in February 2015.

This is clearly the work of an internal PR team. Bob’s reputation as a creative thinker and business driver is abysmal internally. All of the successes mentioned in this story were driven by Iger or Staggs.

Relax everyone, I’m working on the new Walt Protocol that should be ready before then. Then I’ll start on the Meg Crofton Protocol and threaten to turn it on whenever Tom gloats about something.
