Disney World Seeks to Completely Undo Ron DeSantis’ Takeover of Reedy Creek Improvement District

    As part of the lawsuit that Disney has filed against Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, one of the points of relief that Disney seeks from the court is to declare DeSantis’ takeover of the Reedy Creek Improvement District unconstitutional.

    More specifically, the argument is that House Bill 9B and Senate Bill 4C were enacted in retaliation for Disney’s political speech, which would be a violation of the First Amendment. Disney is asking the court to declare the the bills are unlawful and unenforceable because of the First Amendment violation. Disney asks for the court to issue an order enjoining DeSantis and other named Defendants from enforcing the two bills.

    Beyond that, Disney is asking the court to declare the Legislative Declaration made by the Board of Supervisors today to void the Development Agreement as unlawful and unenforceable because it violates the Contracts Clause. Disney also outlines that the Legislative Declaration today violates the Takings Clause, Due Process Clause, and the First Amendment.

    Disney asks the court to declare that Contracts remain in effect and enforceable.

    1. The legislature has the right to make the laws for the state of Florida. Disney is in a losing battle. The lawsuit is not going to do anything except to show that Disney was trying to put up a fight. At the end of the day, Bob Iger knew that he was going to lose but wanted to save face by refusing to settle the matter with DeSantis personally. Iger’s ego will be his undoing, and so his legacy will go down in flame and forever damage Disney’s sacred cow with Ready Creek. How dumb.

      • I have opinionated previously about cops being the devil that are needed, but at the same time you don’t want its nuisances around you.
        I had removed this nest opinion from the earlier one because is unrelated: I believe hidden behind this feuding smoke screen is money making opportunity for the state of Florida: if correct, I don’t know how much money the state can generate, but in these difficult times any means of generating money for Florida besides taxing Disney is a go for battling. Perhaps the yet another prison around the area can bring in the much revenues that Florida is desperately needed, and other FL-income lurking agendas–yet to be realized– behind this smoke screen that I (we) don’t know about. I am speculating that the governor is spearheading some law bills that could become a cooky cutter bill that other states could follow its usage.

    2. DeSatan is clearly an angry entitled child who didn’t get his way. He’s already blown his desire to be President- no way this overgrown brat would be elected nationally (question is how he could get enough angry misogynistic mouth-breathers to win Florida… probably the majority retirees are too senile to understand).

      Disney is totally in the right, and holds the cards. They have invitations from other states more in touch with both reality and the 21st Century.

      If you are religious, you should realize Florida’s chief executive and party are obviously NOT Christ-like in deeds and speech, and in fact appear under the influence of evil.

    3. Political retaliation is an egregious abuse of power. DeSantis is a bully, plain and simple, concerning not just Disney but other actions such as his oppression of LGBTQ+ rights and the book banning. Everything was fine when Disney donated funds to the 2020 campaign but as soon as they disagreed with something that suppresses educational inclusivity, DeSantis’ ego couldn’t accept that and decided to make them pay for being too “woke.”

      Add to that of what woke actually means: “Aware of and actively attentive to important societal facts and issues (especially issues of racial and social justice). Having or marked by an active awareness of systemic injustices and prejudices, especially those involving the treatment of ethnic, racial, or sexual minorities.”

      While I completely agree that some people take that way too far (I say that as a person of white and black mixed heritage) the concept is one that should be embraced if we are to move forward as a society. That politicians use woke as a slur and an platform to fight against is replulsive and contrary to everything it even stands for.
