A few weeks ago we told you that Dan Cockerell, Vice President of Magic Kingdom, was leaving the Disney company to persue outside interests.
We now know today that Dan’s replacement will be Jason Kirk. Jason will be a great fit for Magic Kingdom with massive additions coming to the park. He was the GM of Disney California Adventure Park during much of the overhaul and refurbishment. He later moved to the east coast and was the VP of Epcot until 2014. Jason has spent the last four years as the VP of transportation at Walt Disney World, overseeing expansions to traffic across property and new projects including the Express Bus Transportation and Minnie Van Service.
