Since then, rumors about what’s next for the company has run wild — will ticket prices drop? Will Iger get rid of park pass reservations? Will Disney be sold to Apple?


According to The New York Times, several merger rumors were swirling with Apple rising to the top as the most prominent. But, in a recent Town Hall meeting with Cast Members, Iger made reassurances that such a merger was “nothing more than speculation,” per Scott Gustin on Twitter.

Iger also shared news about the hiring freeze previously announced by former CEO Bob Chapek, stating that there “is no current plan to change” the freeze. He went on to share that he realizes this is “a challenging time for everyone involved” and that the company “will remain resilient.”
