If I understand your point correctly, I think I agree. Certainly Iger's moves have given the company Time. I would have argued that under Eisner, Disney had very little time left. Iger, for all his failures has stabilized the company such that, should at some point in the future, an executive comes in that "Gets it" there will be something left to work with.

This is less true with WDW than it is with DL and the Movie studios.

Critical thinking about Disney at

"That's why I love Walt Disney. It costs $100,000 to build a spire you didn't need. The secret of Disney is doing things you don't need and doing them well and then you realize you needed them all along." - Ray Bradbury

Iger's successor will be key.

WDW is another topic entirely.

It's too bad Frank Wells died.

When it was time to decide to build Splash mountain Eisner said "we can't afford to build it.

Wells said "we can't afford NOT to build it.

That says it all.
