In a post on LinkedIn, Disney Parks, Experiences, and Products announced that David Duffy will soon be stepping into the role of Vice President of Live Entertainment at the Walt Disney World Resort. Duffy has been with the company for more than 30 years in various roles, such as show director, writer, artistic director, and creative director. Most recently, he’s spent a few years at Disneyland Paris.
In his own LinkedIn post, Duffy says that he’s “humbled and excited” to come back to the place where his career with Disney began and where his love for themed entertainment started. Projects Duffy has worked on include Tale of The Lion King, Mickey’s Mix Magic Fireworks, and Frozen Live at the Hyperion, all at the Disneyland Resort.
Of course, we look forward to seeing what Duffy brings to Walt Disney World’s live entertainment realm. It’s been YEARS since we’ve had a nighttime parade, and some of the shows in the theme parks could use a refresh or a replacement.
