Other Key Points

  • You cannot “restore the magic” if you don’t understand the magic.
  • My limited but personal experience with Jay Rasulo mirrors Disney’s perspective that he lacks the creative soul of Disney, even though was at one time head of parks.
  • Blackwell is also trying to advance an agenda with Disney, which includes breaking Disney up into individual components and selling them off. This was addressed by Walt Disney decades ago:

A Century of Powerful Disney Insights Book

You can order my newest book, “A Century of Powerful Disney Insights” on Amazon. It’s a great way to celebrate the 100th anniversary of The Walt Disney Company. In over 100 years, The Walt Disney Company has emerged as one of the most successful entertainment entities across the globe. In this, the first of two volumes, we study the first 50 years of Disney, beginning with Walt and Roy. We look at major milestones and not only see the evolution of an organization begun in a garage, but how it truly became so beloved to millions around the world. From Oswald the Lucky Rabbit and Mickey Mouse through Snow White and Cinderella, from the Mouseketeers to Mary Poppins, and from Disneyland to Walt Disney World, we share stories and insights from 1923 to 1973. We hope you’ll be inspired with ideas and how you can apply these stories to your own life and work.
