    Sometimes all you need is a reminder that out there lies a better place... a better world... a Walt Disney World.

    CONGRATS, JUSTIN!!



    We all can't wait to hear about all the experiences as the CMO! You seem like a great person to be spreading all over the world! Hopefully you'll have time to stop in here and say "hi" and let us know what you're up to from time to time.

    Make sure to get with Lou for an interview.

    Whew!

    When this contest started I was a big Lou supporter... and I was shocked that he didn't make the Top 10.

    After that I became a big Justin supporter, but Patrick's video was funny and he got a lot of Podcast love. I told my wife, "Justin's great, but I think Patrick might take it."

    Wrong again.

    So when it came down to the Final 3, Justin was now clearly the best choice. His video, his interviews, and the special events. Justin was unstoppable... clearly the right man for the job.

    I'm so glad that I finally got it right. No surprises. Disney got themselves the right person for the job.

    Enjoy yourself, Justin. And tell us all about it.

    Congratulations.

    Again, I am so flattered and humbled by you all! Thanks for everything! Now that things are slowly settling down at work (although I have a few REALLY long days ahead of me this week!) what all would you like to know? I will be posting a few things on the dreamcmo.com website eventually, but if you have any specific questions (that I'm allowed to answer!) I'd be more than happy to fill you in!

    Just gonna jump in...

    When does the job officially begin?
    I know you'll be going to Disneyland and WDW, what about other parks?
    What about other buildings, such as Walt Disney Imagineering, Pixar or other corporate places and events (such as Official Attraction Opening Ceremonies)?
    Who do you most hope you will get to meet?
    Do you think they might look for your input or advice on upcoming projects, and how intimidating would that be?
    When you go to parks, will they occasionally allow you to bring close family or are they looking at this purely as business?
    Do you think you might be able to (sometimes) tell us when you'll be in the parks, so that we might happen to bump into and congratulate you in person?
    Do you think you'll still be able to make MouseFest?

    I get the impression that this is a publicity post, but that you will get some opportunities to show your mettle. If your ideas don't entice them, they will utilize you mostly for publicity. If however, you impress them with your ideas and suggestions you could ultimately find yourself being offered a more permanent position. Is that anywhere close to the truth?

    Congratulations again. I'm very excited for you and hope you had a magical Celejubilarty.
