Disneyland President Ed Grier resigned today, effective Friday. The resignation took many in and around the company by surprise.Tweet
Grier wasn't much of a public leader, rarely being seen in the parks. But under his watch, Disneyland has prospered the past three years, with Disneyland Park winning the Theme Park Insider Award as the world's best theme park in 2009 and 2008.

Update: [Oct. 7] Seems that Grier has applied, and named a finalist, to be the dean of a business school in Virginia.
