    Starwood Chief Executive Steve Heyer lured Mr. Ouimet from his most recent position as president of the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, Calif., where he oversaw two theme parks ...

        The big elephant in the room:
        Why wasn't CM Matt pegged for the WDW opening? Why?? I mean, he and his family wanted to move back. It would have been good for everybody.

        Or not. Maybe not for Al Weiss and Jay Rasulo.

            Matt Ouimet, widely hailed for Disneyland's hugely successful year or two under the "Happiest Celebration on Earth" campaign, is out, on his way to run the hotels at Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide.

            Ed Grier, known for his creativity at Tokyo Disneyland Resort, succeeds Ouimet as president of Disneyland Resort in Anaheim.

            Al Weiss took one foot out of the presidency of Walt Disney World last fall to become president of Disney Parks and Resorts, and everyone's still waiting to see who will replace him as president of Walt Disney World.

            Is Disney's resort presidency musical chairs continuing? Maybe.


            Certainly a new president needs to be found for Tokyo. And Orlando.
            Many Disney observers and a few insiders have speculated that Ouimet's successes at Disneyland were so strong that he'd be the front-runner for the Disney World presidency. Some thought he didn't want the job though, and now he's clearly out.

            Others have speculated that Karl Holz, president of Euro Disney Resort and a former top vice president at Disney World, is a leading candidate. If he gets it, then Paris, too, will need a new president. Disney Vacation Club senior vice president and general manager, Jim Lewis, also is commonly discussed for Disney World.

            Disney World Executive Vice President of Operations Lee Cockerell also is leaving, retiring Friday, but he's long said he wasn't interested in the Disney World presidency. He'll be replaced by Erin Wallace, now senior vice president of operations at Disney World.

            Weiss and Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Jay Rasulo hold the cards.

            They've said they want the Tokyo post filled quickly, and aren't in any particular hurry to fill the Disney World presidency.
