Disney LOSES War With DeSantis, Enters Settlement Agreement!

After over a year of fighting, Disney has been forced to settle with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.

As part of the settlement deal, Disney will drop all lawsuits against the newly commissioned Central Florida Tourism Oversight District (CFTOD) and will get to retain its previous permits.

Directly following news of the settlement, DeSantis even hinted that Disney should open up yet another park in the Sunshine State—a tit-for-tat.

It’s funny how these things work, isn’t it? Several months ago, no one could have possibly imagined DeSantis hinting at Disney opening up another park in Florida, yet here we are.

I wonder how long the peace will last between Disney and DeSantis, and this is yet another reminder that going woke leads to going broke and other undesirable outcomes. Here’s what everyone is saying:

The Epoch Times provided this statement from DeSantis’ office following the settlement:

“We are glad that Disney has dropped its lawsuits against the new Central Florida Tourism Oversight District and conceded that their last-minute development agreements are null, void, and unenforceable,” Gov. Ron DeSantis’s Communications Director Bryan Griffin said.

“No corporation should be its own government. Moving forward, we stand ready to work with Disney and the District to help promote economic growth, family-friendly tourism, and accountable government in Central Florida.”

Conservatives pointed out how the media got it wrong yet again and lambasted the MSM establishment for painting the lawsuits against the Florida regulatory body as slum-dunk cases.

Daily Mail explained:

Hours before the CFTOD took over, Disney entered into last-minute agreements with the Reedy Creek board to try and stop the new board from enforcing new powers over the area.

Wednesday’s settlement sees Disney acknowledging the Development Agreement is ‘null and void’ and has ‘no legal effect or enforceability.’
