Disney CEO Bob Iger was named CEO of the year by Chief Executive Magazine.

"He's been a disruptive innovator in taking the entertainment industry to another level using new media and new technology," added Tom Quinlan, CEO of RR Donelly, in a news release. Donnelly was on the selection committee for the award. "He took a great brand and made it better, which isn't easy to do."

Yep, Disney did all its growth 10-20 years ago and guest numbers are still going up so they can now focus on getting the most out of what they have by using special events such as the current Frozen events at DHS or Harambe Nights.
If they have too many hotel rooms why are they building more? Or have the realised that resorts such as Saratoga Springs were a waste of time as what would bring people to DVC is a villa at Grand Floridian / Polynesian / Contempory / Animal Kingdom Lodge.

Yeah, I'd pay good money for one of those! Of course, if too many people had them, you could end up having inflated ride times. I see the positives and negatives of it. Positive only being if you're the one who has it.

NORWAY FOR RANSOM!......now that ive got your attention. Disney has been working hard on plans for the Frozen attraction going into Norway, yet they haven't completely forgotten the idea of keeping the ride focused on Norway. Some Disney suits have been to Norway telling the government they need 9 million dollars to make a new Norway ride or else the entire area becomes.....Frozeninated. The people are obviously upset with Disney over the idea although the country is considering giving the money.

I would rather see Norway spruce it up. Frozen can go in Hollywood studios instead. That park needs more Princesses

Construction permits have just been filed for 'Rivers of Light' construction at Disney's Animal Kingdom suggesting there will be at least two viewing areas for the water based show.

The permits include (Thanks to WDWMAGIC forum member danlb_2000 for spotting the permits):

Asia Viewing Area
Asia Viewing Area Control Building
Dinoland EER Completion
Dinoland Viewing Area
Discovery Island Light Bunkers Completion
Information released so far on the new nighttime show has been limited, with Disney so far only saying, "Rivers of Light promises to be an innovative show unlike anything ever seen in Disney Parks, combining live music, floating lanterns, water screens and swirling animal imagery. The show will magically come to life on the broad, natural stage of the Discovery River, between Discovery Island and Expedition Everest, delighting our guests and truly capping off a full day of adventures at Disney’s Animal Kingdom".

Rivers of Light is expected to open in March 2016.

"While the rest of Europe remains mired in financial crisis, Norway has quietly been amassing a huge fortune which reached 5.11 trillion crowns ($828 billion), according to figures from the country’s central bank - Norges Bank."

It looks like Norway can afford more than nine million dollars. That is about 0.00001% of the above mentioned national fund. Looks like 9 citizens out of 5 million Norwegians would no longer be theoretical millionaires.

Let the renovations begin.
