It’s so wonderful seeing Jeff Vahle stopping and chatting with Walt Disney World Guests. It means so much to the Guests to be seen and be heard and Vahle did just that during the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World on October 1. He stopped and chatted to so many Disney World Guests, took pictures, and really appreciated everything Guests had to say.

If you aren’t aware, Jeff Vahle took on the President of Walt Disney World Resort role when Josh D’Amaro took Bob Chapek’s former role: Chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Products.
