The changes were made at the theme parks, hotels, Disney Springs, and Disney Sports.

The resort's reorganization is giving general managers and executives authority over geographic locations instead of traditional categories. An example: now general managers will oversee Adventureland instead of merchandise or food.

The reorganization means that 18 managerial jobs are now executive positions. Disney says the changes should improve the guest experience at the resort.

And while the vice presidents at the theme parks will remain the same, the hotels under the plan will now each have one general manager. Before the changes one person would often oversee several hotels.

What do you think about the reorganization at Walt Disney World Resort? Let us know in the comments.
