    Since this is the guy who helped create DCA, I'm now worried about the future of Disneyland.
    Growing older is manditory
    Growing up is however, optional

      In his defense, in 2000 DCA was already being constructed and had been designed.

        From what I understand, he is actually a good choice and very knowledgeable of Disney park operations.

        If he wants to last longer than 3 years, he needs to win over the cast members without threatening Jay Rasulo's authority.

        We wish George well in the politically charged and back stabbing Team Disney Anaheim building!

          Guy was Senior VP of DLR ops during the Pressler years. Let's just say I'll reserve my kudos until he proves he's not like his former bosses.

          Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

            While he was at Disneyland paris, guest spending and satisfaction rose. Heres hoping he not only boosts the morale of cast members but provides Disneyland with good stable leadership as it goes through an expansion just as big as the first time around.

                    George was the VP of Epcot in the mid 90's. Having worked there at that time, IMHO, he is a good man and truly does care about Disney, the Cast and the Disney show.

                          The OC Register has an interview. He seems to be serious about being out in the parks, which is a big plus...let's just see if he keeps his promises.

                              I want more info. I want inside dirt on this man! Al and Nikki Finke are letting me down. Throw us a bone here guys!! He is being entrusted with one of the most beautiful pieces of installation art in the history of our country.

                                Cut the guy a break! He's been with Disney for over thirty years. Started out as a busboy at WDW. I feel the cast and guests have a friend on their side! So long Ed, exit towards Harbor Blvd (thats to the left and please DON'T have your hand stamped)

                                  I think the picture is great. It looks as if he was brought from the past to run the future.

                                    He's missing a pocket protector and a visible slide rule, but dude's totally Walt-era Fifties/Sixties in that NASA kind of way.

                                    I predict good things ahead for Tomorrowland!
