Disney places new VP at Animal Kingdom

It’s been less than a year, but Walt Disney World is shuffling VP spots at Disney’s Animal Kingdom again. Michael Colglazier will be the new vice president at Animal Kingdom. Colglazier previously held the position of VP of business development with ties to Disneyland Resort, Epcot and strategic planning during the course of his 20-year career with Disney.

Kevin Lansberry either got the short end of the stick, or served dutifully while Disney searched for someone with appropriate experience to run a theme park. Prior to his short tenure at DAK, Lansberry was VP of Downtown Disney. He is now filling the opening position of senior vice president of worldwide travel operations, there he will be in charge of reservation-center operations for all of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts.

  1. I’ll never forgive Lansberry for being at the DD helm when Pleasure Island was killed off. May the reservation center be a dead-end for his career and may he rot there.

    Bitter? Me? Nooooooo…

    I want my Adventurers Club back, dangit!

  2. You could look at it two ways. One could argue that Lansberry was promoted into the dead-in he deserved for his terrible time at DTD and Transportation. The other argument would be that this is where the new President of Disneyland was sent by Eisner to get rid of him… until he kicked butt and was promoted to DLP.
