  • So I got to thank both Matt Ouimet and Bob Iger on Saturday

    Yup.

    While waiting on the red carpet I spotted Matt Ouimet on the other side of the street. We got his attention and I said "Thank you for fixing up the park!". He smiled and made a gesture to encompass everyone around him and said "I had a lot of help!"

    Then on the red carpet I noticed Bob Iger and his entourage approaching. I got his attention, he stopped, I said "Thank you for everything!", he asked if I worked for us (Disney) I said "No, just a lifelong Disney fan", he said "Well you're welcome anyway!" and I shook his hand!

    It was AWESOME!

    I shook the hand of the CEO of Disney. I will never, ever, forget that.

    Pictures?

    Iger seems much more personable than Eisner ever was. With Eisner, he would've ignored everyone and kept himself well distanced in his entourage. Iger sounds like he's a great guy. And you know what, after what he did for ABC in the early 90's it really shows that he's got what it takes to create quality entertainment.

      I like Iger too, I kinda regret going against him when I first heard that he would be named CEO. I think so far he proved us wrong.

              I didn't talk smack about Iger. Then again, I didn't talk him up either. He existed under the dark cloud of Eisner for so long. What a pleasant surprise he and his management style have turned out to be. He's approachable, personable, and perhaps even outreaching - like Walt.

              I'm so happy for you, ManaByte.

                        He bypassed me and my friend and co-worker goes thats the president, he came back by from looking to see if everyone was almost done being sitted. He shook our hands and said thank you for work tonight, and that he really appreciated it. I met Iger last year right before he was instated, nice guy.

                              Cool.

                              Yes, I'm still unsure about Iger and what he thinks is best for Disneyland, but that's another story.

                              Matt has proved to me he really cares about Disneyland and sees it more than just a cash crop.

                              And I hope Matt and Iger never forget what happened to Disneyland just a few years ago.

                              Remember this quote friends:
                              An unexamined life is a life not worth living at all.

                              That sort of fits with Disneyland's History- we must remember what happened so we can make sure it never happens again.

                              Anyways, great to know that happened to you, ManaByte.
