Disney and DeSantis have been in a legal battle over the appointment of a new board by the governor to oversee the Reedy Creek Improvement District, now renamed the Central Florida Tourism Oversight District. The Disney World parks cover an area of more than 60 square miles.

Judge Allen Winsor, appointed by former President Donald Trump, ruled that Disney’s arguments against DeSantis had no legitimacy or jurisdiction. The legal battle began when Disney, the largest employer in Florida, expressed disagreement with the state’s “don’t say gay” law of 2022, which prohibits teaching children under 9 years old topics related to sexual orientation or gender identity.

The decision could be appealed by Disney, and does not refer to another lawsuit filed by the company in a state court in central Florida over land use agreements. DeSantis’ project against Walt Disney World is moving forward.
