The announcement was issued by Walt Disney World President Jeff Vahle on Instagram. In his post, Vahle wrote:

Congratulations to my friend and colleague Jim MacPhee on his upcoming retirement after 42 years of making magic at Disney. I met Jim as we prepared to open Disney’s Animal Kingdom. He is many things—leader, innovator, friend, husband & father. He is also a beacon for what is great in our Disney heritage. He leaves behind a tremendous legacy inspiring our Cast and helping bring magic to life for our guests. Please join me in congratulating Jim and his family as they begin the next chapter of their story on April 1!

Jim MacPhee was appointed the then-newly created role of Senior Vice President, Operations at Walt Disney World in 2018. MacPhee also presented Walt Disney World’s proposal for the phased reopening of its theme parks back in May this year as part of the Orange County Economic Recovery Task Force.

  1. look like there getting rid of all the people that care about Disney and know how it should be ru, for more Uber soy SJW stuff

  2. With his exit, I’m expecting a “diverse” candidate to replace him full of woke/SJW ideas to reflect the flavor of the Walt Disney company. Don’t hold your breath for anything good, people…
