Florida Governor Ron DeSantis held a press conference in Orlando to praise the success of the Central Florida Tourism Oversight District, a new entity created to replace Walt Disney World's Reedy Creek Improvement District. DeSantis highlighted the district's cost savings for taxpayers and support for local businesses, particularly through the Buy Local Now procurement program. The district has also initiated an operational assessment and faces legal disputes with Disney at both state and federal levels. Disney is planning to appeal the dismissal of its First Amendment case against DeSantis and the district. Meanwhile, the district governs the land of Walt Disney World and its four local theme parks.
