Although it takes a few months to arrive at the news, Republican Legislators in Florida passed a bill ending the company’s special purpose District in the middle of 2023, expecting that the month is most probably June. This surely allows Disney to self-govern on land occupied by the Walt Disney World Resort. At the end of April, that special District, the remedy Creek Investment District made an argument that Florida cannot dissolve the district until the bond debt is paid off and that it has expectations to explore its options while continuing its present operations. 

Taxpayers Appealed To The Florida Government:

As per the information, Disney has not filed a lawsuit, but in the first week of May taxpayers who live near Walt Disney World, Resorts appealed to the Florida government for the move. The judge dismissed the taxpayer lawsuit in the middle of May. But the case was refined in the same month in state court. 

The action of Florida lawmakers to end the district for Disney followed as soon as possible after the company took a stand in opposition to a Florida law banning discussion in the room of sexual orientation and gender from kindergarten through the 3rd grade. It has been largely seen as retaliatory.

Disney taking more time to make its decision caused its internal issues, prompting employee organization. Walkout organizers made a demand to Disney leadership for regaining the trust of the LGBTQLA+ community and employees. In the end, they told of any efforts to move employees to the Florida office locations and they want assurance for the safety of employees and employee retention. 

According to The Orlando Sentinel, Disney could receive $570 million in state tax breaks with the construction of the Lake Nona region.
