Karl Holz, the president of New Vacation Operations with oversight for Adventures by Disney and offsite regional resorts, expanded his role within the Disney brand. In addition to his current responsibilities, he will also serve as president of Disney Cruise Line. Holz previously served as president of Disney Cruise Line in 2004, and was formerly the chairman and CEO of Euro Disney SCA.
Holz is replacing Tom McAlpin, who is leaving the company to pursue other interests.
"Tom has been with Disney Cruise Line since its inception and helped to establish the company as the premier family cruise line," said Al Weiss, president of Worldwide Operations for Walt Disney Parks & Resorts. "We wish him well in his future endeavors and appreciate his dedication and contributions to Disney Cruise Line over the past 14 years."
