Disney has quietly entered into a contract with a Florida government board that seriously thwarts Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ plans to select an oversight board to manage the property Disney has controlled for decades.

When we last left DeSantis’ battle with Disney, the governor signed a bill that took control of the 25,000-acre Reedy Creek Improvement District away from Disney and put it in his hands. of five supervisors hand-picked by the Governor himself. The move was DeSantis’ response to Disney’s vocal opposition to Florida’s Parental Rights in Education bill, widely known as the “Don’t Say Gay” bill.
