Reedy Creek Improvement District Updates Plan for Walt Disney World Resort Expansion as Florida Governor Angles for Control

There has been a lot of controversy surrounding the Reedy Creek Improvement District since the Florida legislature and Governor Ron DeSantis passed legislation to disband it. Since then, there has been much speculation about what Reedy Creek’s future will look like. While the path forward isn’t clear yet for Reedy Creek, things continue to develop in and around it.

This week Reedy Creek Improvement District leaders outlined a plan for the district’s future in the form of the 2032 Comprehensive Long Term Plan. This included some surprising potential additions for the 850 acres of undeveloped property that Walt Disney World Resort currently has available for development. Reedy Creek laid the groundwork for the future development of a full-scale theme park and two minor theme parks (think water park-sized parks). The updated comprehensive plan also includes the added ability to build more hotel rooms.

Reedy Creek Administrator John Classe said that the updates to the plan were just business as usual as Reedy Creek continues to move forward. However, with Governor Ron DeSantis trying to take over the board with Florida-appointed members, it is also very possible that a foundation for the future is being put in place while the board is still friendly to Walt Disney World Resort. The updates were to the 2032 Comprehensive Plan that was adopted last May.

At this point, Disney does not have any specific or public plans that have been announced in conjunction with the Reedy Creek Improvement District’s updates to their 2032 Comprehensive Long Term Plan. Daps Magic will continue to follow the story and provide updates as they become available. What do you think about this update to the plan by Reedy Creek Improvement District?
