More Executive Changes for Disney Parks

There have been more recent changes going on in the executive management world of the Disney Parks. Recently, we told you about the retirement of Disney exec Al Weiss. In the wake of his departure, two other Disney executives have been promoted.

First off, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Tom Staggs has appointed Meg Crofton, the current Walt Disney World President, president of operations. Crofton will continue overseeing WDW but now will also oversee Disneyland and Disneyland Paris. Said Staggs about Crofton:

Meg's strong leadership abilities and broad experience make her the perfect person to lead resort operations in our established markets in the United States and Europe.

Next, current president of Disney Cruise Line and Adventures by Disney Karl Holz was appointed by Staggs to oversee Disney Vacation Club. Staggs had this to say regarding Holz's new appointment:

Karl will be responsible for creating consistent and engaging guest experiences as they expand to new markets and destinations outside the berms of our theme parks.

Both Crofton and Holz, who had originally reported to Weiss, are now integrated with a group of executives who report to Staggs. Disney's overall changes are part of their "One Disney" initiave which is, according to Staggs, "to continue the great work of sharing best practices and leveraging our operational expertise across our properties."
