First reported by Orlando Business Journal, the company has just closed a deal to acquire more land near Walt Disney World Resort.
The Walt Disney Company is massive, spanning across multiple industries and lines of business, from theme parks to motion pictures to home entertainment. In the past couple of weeks, the global health situation has caused Disney to make tough decisions that will surely have an effect on its bottom line in the coming fiscal year.
The Walt Disney Company currently has four primary business segments: Studio Entertainment, Media Networks, Direct-to-Consumer & International, and Parks, Experiences & Products. And most of them are completely under fire right now.
The Coronavirus outbreak is still causing the Walt Disney Company to make some massive shake-ups. We’ve seen the closure of Disneyland and Disney World, and a slew of movies have had their release dates postponed.
And Tokyo Disneyland recently had its closure dates extended. A number of shows would have performed their last hurrah during this time, but the resort is making sure that guests won’t miss out on the chance to see them!
