Disney is not the one in trouble. If enforced, this will cost the taxpayers of Florida $1 BILLION in direct defaults in addition to huge sums of lost revenue.

Except, it can't be enforced, as the original contract and legislation was written to prevent this sort of temper tantrum retaliation from happening.

DeSantis, and the legislature, are going to wish they had never provoked Disney.

Non of this is speculation. It is documented fact.

I feel sorry for kids whose parents are now telling them that Disney is evil and Mickey Mouse is a rat out to warp their minds.

I feel better that kids in Florida schools won't be taught that Mickey Mouse is actually a female somedays, and prefers to be called they and their.

Disney made the choice to step into the political arena. They get to live with that choice.

Kids don’t care about ANY of your political nonsense. They just want to go to Disneyland.

Mickey got cancelled, pathetic.

Anyone who has lived in Anaheim as an adult for any length of time already knew Disney is evil and Mickey Mouse is a rat. Disney tries to bully the city of Anaheim just like he tried to bully his illustrators. Why do you think Disney wanted full control of Reedy Creek? Disney even prevailed upon the city to condemn a really nice looking mobile home park that was a couple of blocks away from their "resort district", force the residents who in most cases had lived there for a couple of decades to leave (the park had been there for decades and now all of a sudden Disney wanted it gone) and level the land because in Disney's august view, a mobile home park didn't fit the image he wanted to project. It is hard to say which I dislike more, Ron DeSantis or Disney.

Getting planning permission is not the same as believing Disney have a secret agenda ti make all American children gay.

Just more fake moral outrage for attention from insecure parents.

Florida law saws any taxing authority, which describes Reedy Creek, that has outstanding debt cannot be disincorporated. In 2018 Reedy Creek floated utility bonds that clearly state the bonds cannot be retired until at least 2028. The state of Florida cannot retire those bonds legally and would be sued by the bondholders if they tried.

Sounds like parents doing what parents should do--looking out for the welfare of their children and not giving in to the extreme left minority.

Chalk one up for parent hood.

Disney is evil. I just had a son and I will do my best to not get sucked into the Disney world. I'm not worried. Never spent a dime on any Disney crap. Feel bad for the hard working salary men in this country whose wives and children drop thousands of their hard earned dollars down the overpriced Disney drain.

Poor kids.

I feel sorry for kids whose parents lack the sense to tell them that Disney and Mickey want to indoctrinate them with postmodern intolerance and neo-racism.

Poor kids.

Disney teamed up with mafia in his attempt to avoid providing decent working conditions, then backlisted them as communists because they dared to stand up for themselves- I've seen this story played out in a number of places, and the US always adopts the role of Disney.

Bingo! Cancel culture, a phrase invented by right wingers of low mental calibre, was honed to perfection by McCarthyists in the middle of the previous century, and finely tuned by Trump and his slack-jawed army who encouraged the assault of journalists who didn't subsribe to his alt-fact reality.

These people still demand credence, simply because it is what they 'believe'.

Why should he, it's Florida, they don't wear masks there.

True and their parents basically had to put the brakes on that when they found that Disney decided to play the role of a parent and teach kids sexual ideology and gender politics that is frankly, none of their business, that's the pathetic part.

No, Disney can continue its operations, I and other parents that don't want to hear any woke crap won't go, that is a choice, they do what they want and I will as well.

low mental calibre,

Looking at the state of the entire nation the left are the very last people that can criticize anyone for having a low mental caliber.

Different times, centuries, and reasoning. you are making an apples and oranges argument.

and finely tuned by Trump and his slack-jawed army who encouraged the assault of journalists who didn't subsribe to his alt-fact reality.

Ok, the rest was just more lib garbage that the left spews about the guy on the daily basis. Now if Biden hadn't screwed up so, so badly, he might even have been able to seek a second term, but that's not going to happen.
