The Zika virus outbreak in Florida has not had an impact on Disney's theme park business, CEO Bob Iger said Tuesday.
"We've had a few calls on it, but we really haven't seen anything that we would be concerned about in terms of its impact on visitation or bookings," he said in an interview on CNBC's "Closing Bell. "
On Tuesday, Florida's Department of Health identified four more people in the state with the virus who likely contracted it through a mosquito bite, bringing the total number of people in Florida with locally transmitted Zika to 21.
Iger noted that overall, Disney's domestic theme park business is quite strong. He was also pleased with the "flawless opening" in June of Shanghai Disneyland.
"It's performed very well, much more than a million people have already visited. People are staying a lot longer per day or per visit than we expected."
However, he noted there is softness in a few markets like Brazil, Canada and Europe.
Meanwhile, he's unconcerned about any political uncertainty in the U.S. and the potential impact on Disney's business.
That's because Disney doesn't tend to look at short-term cycles like the current political environment, Iger said.
"We've got a lot of activity as a company," he said, citing the new Star Wars Lands coming in California and Florida and new cruise ships.
"Our investments are being made with the long term in mind. That's how we operate. We obviously feel bullish about our prospects in the world overall."
Disney released earnings after the bell Tuesday that beat analysts' expectations.
