Yoo Hoo, Disney EchoEars!
Roy E. Disney sent a letter to Disney Cast Members on December 3rd explaining why he resigned from Disney’s Board of Directors and resigned as Chairman of Disney’s Animation Department. He explains how he feels Michael Eisner has lost sight "the dream born of Walt and my father ... the vision upon which this Company was founded," how he recentlywas prevented from attending the Animation Department screening of three pending feature animation projects. He also thanked the Cast Members for helping "make the magic and wonder that is Disney."

Roy E. Disney did not send the letter directly to all Cast Members, but he did urge those receiving it to pass it along to fellow Cast Members.
The letter was sent by Roy via e-mail from the office at his investment company (< Shamrock Holdings, Inc. >) to friends and colleagues, including senior executives in the Company's feature animation and theme park divisions in California and Orlando plus the Walt Disney Imagineering research group.
