He will be missed. Definitely a legend within the Disney Parks.

A Disney Legend for sure, well deserved to go out on his own terms. He will definitely be missed.

I must admit to being concerned about AK and what happens there next.
Actually it's possible that he might be asked to be a consultant, but would turn it down When DH retired, they asked him and he said "No way! Once I'm out this door, I'm not reentering!"
Joe Rhode's done such wonderful things Time to relax and enjoy!

He's expensive. They may have made him an offer he couldn't refuse!

Maybe Universal said "build us Disney" and he couldn't resist the challenge

Cheers.

It will be a loss, but he deserves to enjoy the remainder of his life.

It would not surprise me to see him take on a big Universal project.
