    Being a former Cast Member for Disney, I can't tell you how thirilled I was when I heard Bob Iger was back. I had the opportunity to meet him and must say that he is a true professional who cares about his employees, the company and the public. Bob is a visionary who always listened to objective ideas and put them to work. He took the Disney franchise into the 21st Century way before it became a reality. I always admired Bob's business acumen and followed the growth of the company with enthusiasm and drive! Welcome back I am confident the "Disney Magic" will return to the Magic Kingdom and all the jewels of the Disney Brand. You've made my day and that of hundreds of thousands of other Disney fans. Looking forward to your return.
    Congrats on another decision well made: Bob Iger: Disney CEO
