Last year, the former Reedy Creek Improvement District became the Central Florida Tourism Oversight District after Governor Ron Desantis’ state takeover. The District is governed by a five-member Board of Supervisors, who are all appointed by the Governor. Since taking over the District, the Board of Supervisors has made a number of decisions with major impacts on Disney’s operations.

After the dissolution of the Reedy Creek Improvement District in 2023, Disney has been engaged in multiple battles with the new Central Florida Tourism Oversight District.

Since taking over, the Board of Supervisors has made some controversial decisions like eliminating Disney World Annual Pass benefits for employees of the District, floating potential changes to infrastructure in the area, and more, sparking numerous legal battles between the District and Disney.

The Board of Supervisors meets roughly once a month to make decisions on aspects of administration that range from infrastructure financing to growth management. And the decisions made at these meetings can have major impacts on Disney World’s operations within the District.
