The saddest part is that she did an amazing job in Paris, helping bring credibility to the resort and making it something that brings value to Disney. As per the Walt Disney Company latest financial report, it was Paris that helped cover up the issues at the domestic parks. She was also loved by the cast members and was a great leader.

I wonder what she will do now? Will she stay in the theme park world?
