Meanwhile, all 10 existing board members were reelected in the AGM. None received less than 86.6% of the vote; Iger's tally was 98.3%. Additionally, the company unveiled the first model image of Shanghai Disneyland, the latest iteration of its popular theme park. It is slated to open at the end of 2015.
