DeSantis is ending the Disney Reedy Creek Development District

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) signs Florida HB 9 into law, eliminating Disney’s self-governing Reedy Creek Development District.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) signed legislation Monday that he says ends Disney’s rule over the “unaccountable kingdom of corporations” that is Walt Disney World. The move was denounced as legislative blackmail by critics when DeSantis took aim at Disney after the company vocally opposed Florida’s bill on parental rights in education, often dubbed the “Don’t Say Gay” law.

Before the new legislation, Disney World was in a special tax district covering 25,000 acres in Orange and Osceola counties called The Reedy Creek Improvement District. The district was created in 1967 by a state statute that gave the Walt Disney Company state control of the land in and around its central Florida theme parks.
