2019 Disney Parks Leadership Changes | Inside Universal Forums
  • As the Coronavirus pandemic continues to impact everywhere, we understand our users will have a lot of questions about how it affects the theme parks. We are entering unprecedented waters, and honestly, the answer is either "yea, probably", or "Too early to tell". We just don't know specifics until the theme parks give us an answer. At this time, we're asking to please leave the COVID talk to the appropriate COVID threads, and if something officially and specifically is impacted by a closure, then we can discuss it further in the respective threads. Thank you!

Also: George Kalogridis moves from WDW Pres. to newly created "President of Segment Development and Enrichment".....and Colglazier gets Disney Paris added to his Asian parks duties.................Sounds like Georgie will be in charge of sucking more money out of customer wallets with new upcharges and such....and cutting costs... duties that he performed as pres. at WDW so masterfully;)....lots and lots and lots more cupcake parties coming our way.

Is that a promotion? It sounds more like a "Let's put you here for a second before we formally let you go in 3 months. No need to show up for work. Enjoy these stocks as a parting gift."

Unrelated: I can't read a story without picturing Chapek as Tom Wambsgan on Succession on HBO.
that’s what it sounds like

I'm feeling that since his duties are to institute development and enrichment across all the NA resorts, that we're going to see a lot of the upcharge stuff he created at WDW extended to Disneyland resort. Bet they start cutting Disneyland regular hours and instituting more upcharge events, like all the extra cost late hours in the evening etc......

The layoffs aren't done.
I expect Kalogridis to go. He's sort of in an unnecessary, created for the sake of keeping you around for a few months role right now.

I wonder if Trowbridge will get hit with one since he sort of led SWGE.

I agree and it was a smart move to bring him over to WDW to help with cast morale and overall leadership. The level of interaction with the frontline CMs is a change of pace that was desperately needed. Excited to see what else he has in store for this resort.
