DeSantis just ended Disney's corporate kingdom by taking state control of the company's special Reedy Creek jurisdiction
· Feb 27, 2023 ·

Promises made, promises kept.

After Disney went fully woke and tried to pressure Florida's governor Ron DeSantis into vetoing a bill to protect children from groomer teachers, DeSantis said that Disney was going to pay, and they are being made to pay.

Today, DeSantis ended Disney's corporate kingdom in Florida.

Today, Governor Ron DeSantis announced new board members who will immediately take control of the 40-square mile Reedy Creek Improvement District – now functioning under a new name, the Central Florida Tourism Oversight District.

Reedy Creek was an autonomous zone that had the same authority as a county government. It was gifted to Walt Disney and his company after Disney's death in 1967 in order to build on his plans of creating the city of tomorrow.

The move comes as DeSantis signs legislation passed in a recent special session that removes the Disney-selected board and imposes a state-controlled, term-limited board appointed by the governor.

Disney had complete and total control of a 40-square-mile section of Florida, special privileges like no other company could ever imagine, and they lost it because they couldn't stop being woke political activists.

Disney went out of its way to oppose a bill protecting children, proving itself to be squarely against the values of Floridians.

In other words, Ronny D took on the mouse, and won.

Here's DeSantis's press conference today about the new tourism board:
