Earlier today the Florida State Legislature filed a bill proposal that showed what it has planned for the Reedy Creek Improvement District. The plan would have the Governor appoint five board members to the district, which would also have a new name. Within hours of the bill being filed, the President of Walt Disney World Resort, Jeff Vahle released a statement.
The full statement reads as follows:
We are monitoring the progression of the draft legislation, which is complex given the long history of the Reedy Creek Improvement District. Disney works under a number of different models and jurisdictions around the world, and regardless of the outcome, we remain committed to providing the highest quality experience for the millions of guests who visit each year.Jeff Vahle, President, Walt Disney World Resort
