The Walt Disney Company Will Move 2,000+ Employee Positions to Florida, Build New Regional Campus
The rumor that has been circulating the internet for some time was just confirmed: The Walt Disney Company will be building a new regional campus in Florida and relocate about 2,000 of it’s employees.
The new Walt Disney Company regional campus will be located in Lake Nona, Florida. Lake Nona is located near the Orlando International Airport and about 20 miles away from Walt Disney World.
In a letter sent to employees notifying them of the move, Josh D’Amaro, Chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences, and Products said:
Florida is known for its rich culture of hospitality and active lifestyle as well as a lower cost of living with no state income tax.
The employees that are impacted by this change work in the Disney Parks, Experience and Products division of the Walt Disney Company and are roles that work with the company’s digital technology, finance, and product development. Those employees that currently hold full-time positions for matters that relate to the Disneyland Resort as well as select Disney Parks outside of the United States will not be required to make the move across country.
The employees who will be making the move from California to Lake Nona, Florida will have 18 months to do so.
D’Amaro acknowledges the challenge in moving oneself and family across the country. He said:
As someone who has moved with my family from California to Florida and back again, I understand that relocation is a big change, not only for the employee, but also for their families. Therefore, moving these roles to Central Florida will take place throughout the next 18 months, providing flexibility in timing to accommodate individual situations and needs.”
The exact opening date and location of the new Walt Disney Company regional office in Lake Nona, Florida is yet to be announced. Make sure to keep it here with MickeyBlog.com as we continue to following this breaking news.
