The wonderful world of Disney is busier than ever and CEO Bob Iger spoke with Barrons about what’s happening right now and what’s on the horizon.
We knew there would be intense demand to go see it, so we put in a reservation system to control crowds. It’s beyond our greatest expectations in terms of merchandise, food, beverages, and so on. But most important is that visitors say they cannot believe how closely it resembles the worlds they know and love from the films. It’s so immersive they forget they’re in Disneyland.
No, because of our brands. Disney+ will have Disney, Marvel, Pixar, Star Wars, National Geographic, and more. There will be originals, a library of past movies, and recent releases like “Avengers: Endgame.” We believe there is a voracious appetite for what we make, and to deliver it over the top.
