DL Theme Park News
The Disney Blog, a website which deals in Disney news and rumors, claims that Disney Vacation Club President Jim Lewis is one of three candidates for the recently-vacated position of Disneyland President. Long time Disney vet Ed Grier recently announced his retirement. Grier has been with the company for 28 years, the last 3 spent as DL President.
Other candidates mentioned are Erin Wallace, Senior VP of Operations for Walt Disney World, and George Kalogridis, COO for Disneyland Resort Paris. Kalogridis is repotedly the front-runner for the job.
In this week's parks update, MousePlanet.com reminds us that Walt Disney World and Disneyland have been on roughly the same price increase schedule for several years now. Therefore those rumors of a ticket price increase for Walt Disney World may impact its west coast counterpart as well. Members with plans to visit the soon-to-open Villas at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel may save a few dollars by investing in their tickets within the next few weeks.
