DeSantis, Disney settle lawsuit

The fight between Ron DeSantis and Disney has come to an end.

Disney and Governor Ron DeSantis have reached a settlement in their long-standing dispute over self-governance of Walt Disney World.

The backstory: The feud between Disney and DeSantis began when Disney publicly opposed the Parental Rights in Education Act, a bill that restricted instruction about sexual orientation and gender identity in public schools.


  • As part of the settlement, Disney will no longer seek to retain its self-governance, and Governor DeSantis will appoint a new administrator to oversee the theme park’s governance.
  • The settlement and the appointment of a technocratic administrator mark a significant shift in the relationship between Disney and the governor.
