Disney Lawyers, Lobbyists Reportedly Working on Solution to Help DeSantis “Save Face”, Claim Victory Over “Woke Culture”

We want you to get the most out of your ‘luxury villa’ stay in Solterra, Davenport (near Championsgate and just south of the Disney World Resort area). To help out, we have sourced the following blog post to keep you up to date with news from Walt Disney World Resort. Thanks to the guys over at Blog Mickey for the original post...

According to a report from the Washington Post, Disney lawyers and lobbyists are working behind the scenes while the company stays publicly quiet over a recent bill that aims to dissolve the Reedy Creek Improvement District. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has not been shy over what critics are calling a retaliatory piece of legislation. Recently, DeSantis all but confirmed that the legislation is an attack over Disney’s stance on the “Don’t Say Gay” law, telling Fox News “I am not comfortable having one company with their own government and special privileges when that company has pledged itself to attacking the parents in my state”.

Now, a report from the Washington Post claims that Disney’s lobbyists and lawyers are trying to find a solution that allows DeSantis to save face over a law that poses more questions than answers:

Lobbyists and lawyers have been working behind the scenes to find a solution that would allow DeSantis “to save face” and continue to claim a victory over “woke culture,” while in reality doing very little to impede the company’s massive operations in Florida.
