Chapek Allegedly Instituted Positive Changes at Disney That Iger Will Get Credit For

Surprising news has come out surrounding the Chapek-Iger transition that broke the internet earlier this week. Former CEO Bob Chapek reportedly instituted some much-needed positive changes at the Disney Parks for which he will now not get credit.

It’s been a whirlwind of a week for the Disney fandom and community. Disney CEO Bob Chapek, who was infamous with fans and was constantly petitioned to be replaced, was ousted from the Walt Disney Company and his predecessor, Bob Iger, returned to take the mantle.

However, while the week has seen other organizational changes, including Chapek’s top ally, Kareem Daniel, being let go as well, it has recently come to the surface that former Disney CEO Bob Chapek actually instituted some positive changes that will make many Disney fans very happy.

Disney follower, and lawyer Sean Nyberg, @SeanNyberg, tweeted:

Nyberg then shared a second tweet wherein he said,

Also, the news has been shared among other Disney theme park sites through their own sources, so it’s not that hard to find. I’m just going to avoid sharing news from sources that I can’t reveal. Not the vibe I’m going for. Lol

Nyberg was referring to his now-deleted tweet wherein he shared that Chapek had already signed off to take away the much-hated Park reservation systems and it was going to happen as soon as this winter. Interestingly, while Nyberg deleted his tweet, many other sources shared the same news.

From Disney Glimpses:

This wasn’t all. The Twitter account @OrangeGrove55 also retweeted the following from Twitter user Dre @VashSky:

We’ve been hearing rumors for months on this, with all of them pointing to this time period for the great “reimagining” of the reservation system. Doesn’t shock me that this lever has been pulled and, coincidentally, with Iger taking all the credit. Wild.

Check it out:

While many sources are confirming these rumors, nothing has been confirmed yet by Disney. At this point, only time will tell whether the Park reservation system is, in fact, going away and what plans the Walt Disney Company has for its Guests and fans. The Disney Park pass reservations system is currently instituted at both the Walt Disney World Resort as well as the Disneyland Resort.

We at Disney Fanatic will report on all Disney news as it comes to light.
