Disney won over more fans on Wall Street with its latest quarterly performance, despite a slight drop in its earnings.
Mickey Mouse goes Big Brother? Disney CEO Robert Iger is defending a new plan to monitor theme park visitors with "MagicBands" — bracelets containing tracking technology.
Apple Inc. has named Arthur Levinson as its non-executive chairman, a move that rewards the longtime Apple board member who chose it over Google Inc. when the technology giants began competing with each other.
Disney CEO Robert Iger will remain in his job through March 2015 and then serve as executive chairman for another 15 months to help break in a new chief executive, the company said Friday.
Dipping golden shovels into a trench of sand, Walt Disney Co. executives and their Shanghai partners broke ground Friday for a long-sought theme park that will feature the world's biggest "Magic Kingdom" castle, and ambitions to match.
Walt Disney Co. has awarded CEO Bob Iger a 2010 pay package valued at $28 million, up 30 percent from a year ago. That's according to an Associated Press analysis of data disclosed to regulators on Friday.
While Disney CEO Bob Iger was chatting with Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg at a major media summit in Idaho this month, Khan Manka Jr. was squiring around the lodge bar looking for a drink.
"We're confident about the year ahead, as well as our ability to create continued long-term growth," Iger said.
Mr. Iger says the bracelets are optional and also serve as a credit card, park ticket and room key.
