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.

I don’t know about you, but there are times when planning a Disney vacation can be overwhelming! There are so many options, where to stay, when to go, is this the best price. So, I want to introduce you all to Cindy Minor and the team at Small World Big Fun. They will help you plan your Disney vacation for FREE. Contact them today!
