    A guy can dream...
    I agree with YOU
    But the the man , wants a super TARGET store !

        Josh D'Amaro - Great guy, well liked by CMs and seem to actually care about the parks. Just moved to WDW, may stay in place. Excellent Choice!

        George Kalogridis - Great guy, worked his way through the ranks, cares about the guests and CMs. Rumored to be retiring, but we shall see. Excellent Choice!

        Mary Niven - Great lady, cares about the parks and guests, loves live entertainment and kinetic energy. Knows the parks and their history. Passed over a number of times strangely. Great Choice!

        Michael Colglazier - former DLR President, currently stressing out over Asia situation, but freed up. Rumored to be aloof and cold. Not a great choice

        Rebecca Campbell - Chapek's lieutenant, rumored to be a cross between Chapek and Meg Crofton (yikes! ). Tight smiles and fake enthusiasm, also rumored to know little about the parks. Not a great choice.

        Maybe Matt Ouimet can be lured back. Unlikely he'd work for a philistine like Chapek. Outstanding Choice!!!!

        Any others to add to the list??
        What about Ken Potrock? Since Chapek himself was President of Condumer Products, wouldn’t it make sense for him to choose someone with a similar background similar to him? Ken Potrock is currently President of Consumer Products.

          CRUD! Based on his profile, he is literally set to take the position:
          Ken joined Consumer Products after more than two decades of leadership experience at Disney Parks. Throughout his career, Ken has consistently challenged the status quo – enabling a holistic entrepreneurial culture that defies the odds and ensures the unparalleled “Disney Difference” is delivered each day to Guests, consumers and fans.

          Ken is also well-known for developing, invigorating and transforming numerous Disney properties and businesses to deliver consistent and dynamic growth. Most recently, Ken served as the Senior Vice President and General Manager of Disney Vacation Club, the Company’s innovative and fast-growing vacation ownership program, as well as Adventures by Disney, the Company's award-winning guided group travel business.

          In 2015, Ken led the dramatic expansion and reimagining of Disney Springs, Walt Disney World's iconic retail, dining and entertainment district. Previously, Ken was Senior Vice President of Disney Sports Enterprises, where he led the transformative rebranding of the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Florida. Ken began his Disney career in 1996 as Vice President, Marketing for Disney Cruise Line, where he helped define and launch the Company’s bold entry into the cruise industry.
