The theme of The Walt Disney Company Q2 earnings call this afternoon was a more empowered financial stance, as well as a successful quarter in international parks. CEO Bob Iger praised the park expansions that have opened abroad noting the exciting lands that will be opening later in the year.
“And we have a number of other growth and expansion opportunities at our parks… and we are closely evaluating where it makes the most sense to direct future investments,” Iger touched on during the call.
Iger went on to touch on local investment again when responding to a question relating to the current legal situation in Florida. “And as I mentioned on our shareholder call we have a huge opportunity to continue to invest in Florida. I noted that our plans are to invest 17 billion over the next 10 years, which is what the state should want us to do.”
Will this investment include the Zootopia / Moana expansion teased at D23 last year? We can only hope!
