Dear [D23 Member],
As we approach the end of 2022, I wanted to take a moment to express my
gratitude to the biggest Disney fans in the world – all of you.
Disney is fortunate to have the most devoted and enthusiastic fans, and I was
reminded of this a few weeks ago when I visited Disneyland Resort and
attended the Candlelight Processional. It was invigorating to be surrounded
by so many guests who make what we do possible. We love your passion for
our company and your enthusiasm for what we create, and we will continue to
do our best to exceed your highest expectations.
As you know, next year Disney will mark its 100th anniversary. We are
immeasurably grateful to the generations of fans all around the globe who
have invited our stories and characters into their lives, and we look forward to
celebrating the groundbreaking moments, the cherished memories, and the
creative visionaries that made Disney the most beloved name in
entertainment over the past century.
During the coming year, D23 will launch a slate of exciting events to mark this
historic milestone. More information can be found here.
Looking at all the opportunities ahead, I can honestly say there has never
been a better time to be a Disney fan. It is an extraordinary privilege to lead
this remarkable company again, and I am so grateful for your continued
passion for Disney. On behalf of all of us at The Walt Disney Company, I wish
you a wonderful holiday season and a very happy and prosperous New Year.
We are so happy to hear from Iger, and look forward to seeing what the future holds for The Walt Disney Company in 2023.
