When Bob Iger passed on the Chief Executive Officer reins to Bob Chapek in February 2020, no one knew COVID-19 was lurking in the shadows ready to rock the Disney company (and the world!) with closures. While the new Disney CEO, Bob Chapek stepped in at such a crazy time, his reputation hasn’t been one that could ever be compared to Bob Iger’s.

Even though fans have been recently hoping Iger makes a return to the Walt Disney Company, it’s no surprise that Iger is ready for his years with Disney to come to an end as of December 31, 2021, which he shared during a recent video interview.

Now, with the New Year upon us, Iger visited Walt Disney World Resort and took to Twitter to express his gratitude toward what makes him so proud of Disney. That’s right, the Cast Members.

@RobertIger tweeted: “Just spent 3 days @WaltDisneyWorld & was reminded (yet again) what makes me so proud of @disney…our Cast Members! Thanks for taking care of me all these years. Thanks for your talent, your commitment & the gratitude you expressed. I am deeply grateful to all of you!”

He’s so right, and it’s so incredible to see Iger focus on thanking the Cast Members as he ends his tenure with The Walt Disney Company.

Will you miss Iger’s leadership in The Walt Disney Co.? Let us know in the comments.
