Disney CEO Bob Iger is tackling the tough financial issues amonst The Walt Disney Company, calling out “alienated” prices that held consumers back from enjoying Disney.
In the Q1 2023 earnings call, Disney CEO Bob Iger shared with board members and stakeholders that the company has taken action on “pricing initiatives” to increase accessibility to the Disney brand:
Iger shared “that some of our pricing initiatives were alienated to consumers. I have always believed that accessibility is a core value of the Disney brand. We were not perceived to be as accessible to as affordable to many segments, as we probably should have been… We started to address it… And the steps that we took were actually very, very positive.”
