LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. —
On Wednesday morning, Disney filed a federal lawsuit against Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, claiming that the governor is harming the company’s business operations.
The lawsuit intensifies the ongoing feud between DeSantis, who is anticipated to run as a Republican candidate in the 2024 presidential election, and Disney.
The Central Florida Tourism Oversight District’s governor-appointed board of supervisors met and voted just before noon to invalidate a set of agreements Disney made with Reedy Creek earlier this year.
