DeSantis Mentions Possibility of a Prison Built Next to Disney World
There’s a new chapter in the saga of Disney World versus Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
If you’ve been following MickeyBlog for a while, you’re probably up-to-date on everything that happened with the former Reedy Creek Improvement District, which has been renamed the Central Florida Tourism Oversight District with all new board members handpicked by DeSantis himself.
The goal of this takeover was for the state of Florida to retain a level of control over Disney World, but Disney pulled an Uno reverse card on DeSantis when it was discovered that the former Reedy Creek board had passed the “King Charles III” clause just a day before being dissolved, in effect rendering the new board powerless.
Ron DeSantis Mentions a Prison Next to Disney World
In a news conference held on April 17th, DeSantis had a lot to say about Disney.
“They (Disney) are not superior to the laws that are enacted by the state of Florida. They thought they could create a development agreement that would render everything we did null and void. That’s not going to work, that’s not going to fly.”
DeSantis and Florida Legislature are now in the process of developing a bill to nullify the Disney and Reedy Creek Improvement District agreement. DeSantis said that if the legislature is not passed, the King Charles III clause would not hold up in the courts anyway, referring to it as a “sham agreement.”
DeSantis noted several things that could be done with the district land near Disney World, including a state prison.
