    Crap, he did a lot of good for the company. As for the comment above the Press Release, I think it's more Jay than Ed.

      I agree! You've had an encounter with Ed, right? From what I remember, your feedback about Ed was that he was very genuine.

      Jay, well, all you have to do is watch Disneyland: Secrets, Stories, and Magic and you get the idea.

        I certainly did and was very surprised on how much he actually likes to talks to guests (yes he does). He talked to me for at least 20 minutes. Wish I got to meet Greg Emmer before this happened.

          This is not good. I can't say why. But this is very bad for the future.

            Determining the future is a little premature, IMO. Yes, Emmer contributed greatly to the Resort but thats not to say there won't be a suitable replacement. Plus, the Resort is operating with a lot of positive momentum right now with no end in sight.

              Greg's departure is a major loss for the Resort... but at least we still have the two Johns. (Lassiter and Storbeck)

                  Ack!!!! Greg will be missed. Ed has been pretty much been
                  in hiding and non-consequential in regard to running DL. But
                  the person that NEEDS to QUIT as soon as possible is Jay
                  Rasulo. His management blunders and forced promotion of
                  a celebration with nothing to celebrate "dreams" is a dud.
                  Not even a forced 2nd year of "dreams" still is the most
                  wasteful promo in DL's history.

                  Fortunately, John Lasseter seems to be the real force at DL.
                  Maybe JR can be forced out some way.

                    Wow... it seems like only yesterday that I watched him wringing out his jacket on the dock after an unfortunate encounter with a school of piranha.:whistling

                    On the bright side he had an amazing sense of humor as he continually mumbled something to the effect of "old Skips... should have known better... might have been on purpose..." I can say with honesty that there were 3 Managers who stepped off the boat and were in TEARS laughing at with their fellow colleagues. :lol::lmao::lol:

                    Like Matt, I wish him well and am sad to see him leave but hope he is happy wherever he may end up, be it working or retirement.

                      Wow, this is sad. I hope Greg has great future where ever he decides to go and whatever he does. He will definitely be missed.

                        It's never a good thing when a long time employee who cares about the company leaves. I wish him the best.

                          We should send him a thank you card or something.

                            He was so important to turing around maintenance standards! I hope things don't slide again. Greg will be missed.

                              This is a huge loss for the resort. Greg Emmer was a huge part in turning an aging infrastructure into a gem again just in time for Disneyland's 50th. Emmer was a wonderful leader in operations and making sure the resort, Disneyland especially, remained special. I was in awe seeing so much scaffolding and tarps go up everywhere right after he moved west. When I though I saw enough there was another structure that went under tarps or that was getting its much needed and overdue renovation. Sure, it may be bad show and hurt the image at the time, but it led to such a turnaround. I hadn't known what shiny paint looked like at Disneyland until the tarps came down, especially after the Castle makeover Main Street rework. Ouimet and Emmer took Disneyland by storm and turned what looked like coil into a diamond.

                              This is just as bad as when Ouimet left, in my point of view, for Emmer was a great, humorous Disney Theme Park veteran. What was so great about his vision is that he deeply believed in what made Disney great, its roots. He took the ideas of the past that worked and molded them into present operations. He believed in history and nostalgia, but never had them get in the way of the future and letting the park grow.

                              Here's hoping he finds what he's looking for in whatever direction he is going, for he deserves it. Emmer did great things for the DLR and for WDW. I wish him all the luck one could get.

                              Now let's hope we get an equally great replacement as Resort Operations is just about the most important task at the resort.
