Disney Surrenders Its Legal Fight Against Florida And Gov. Ron DeSantis

3 months ago

The courtroom battles between The Walt Disney Corporation and the state of Florida are finally over. Less than two months after a judge dismissed Disney’s federal lawsuit against the state and Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.), Disney has settled its state suit. “This dismissal is made with the understanding that it represents a permanent closure of the lawsuit, barring any future claims on the same matter, thus reflecting the Parties' intention to conclusively resolve this dispute and foster a constructive path forward,” Disney’s attorneys wrote in the settlement agreement. As part of the settlement, Disney agreed to vacate the eleventh-hour changes that the outgoing Reedy Creek Improvement District (RCID) board enacted just before the new Central Florida Tourism Oversight District (CFTOD) board took over management of the district, which includes Walt Disney World property. Disney also agreed to support the CFTOD’s initiatives for future development in the district.

The federal and state suits stemmed from Disney's vocal opposition to Florida's Parental Rights in Education law, which the left falsely branded the "Don't Say 'Gay'" bill. Disney cast members pressured then-CEO Bob Chapek to speak out against the legislation based on the left's narrative about the bill. DeSantis and the Florida legislature retaliated by revoking the special legislation that created the RCID, which allowed Disney to serve as a quasi-governmental entity over its property. The state established the CFTOD to serve in place of the RCID. The CFTOD has since exposed Disney's abuse of power, and Disney clickbait sites have taken to their fainting couches over the state inspecting transportation on Disney property.
