Disney investors had plenty to cheer this past year, as the entertainment juggernaut posted healthy revenue growth in its parks and resorts and movie divisions in fiscal 2018 (overall revenue was $59.4 billion, an increase of nearly 8% from the year before), and unleashed a slew of box office hits, from Black Panther to Incredibles 2. Now, shareholders—and many consumers—are awaiting the launch of the company’s upcoming streaming service, Disney+, and the influx of content the company inherited with its acquisition of 21st Century Fox, which finally closed in March. But that doesn’t mean everything is running smoothly at the happiest place on earth. There’s been growing scrutiny on CEO Bob Iger’s $65.7 million annual salary, and even with the new streaming service, it could take Disney a long time to catch up to rivals like Netflix.
