Disney CEO Bob Iger Announces $17 Billion Investment & 13,000 Additional Jobs at Walt Disney World Over Next Decade

When answering a question about the adversarial stance that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has taken against The Walt Disney Company, Disney CEO Bob Iger said that Disney is planning massive investments in Walt Disney World over the next decade. In fact, Iger said that Disney is planning $17 billion worth of investments in Walt Disney World over the next 10 years. Iger also said that 13,000 new jobs would be created by the investment. No specific details were announced.

Iger has previously said that he is very bullish on the theme parks, and has indicated support for expansions at the theme parks without committing to any specific expansion. Disney Parks Chairman Josh D’Amaro has previously announced ambitious “Blue Sky” projects such as an expansion of Magic Kingdom called “Beyond Big Thunder Mountain” and a Moana/Zootopia retheme of DinoLand USA at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
