Walt Disney Imagineering Job Postings Indicate Relocation to Orlando Area Still Planned for 2024, Despite Conflicts With Florida Government

Job postings for Walt Disney Imagineering indicate that the division’s move to Orlando, Florida is still planned to be completed by late 2024.

Among the job postings is one for a New Experience Development Executive in Glendale, California. It notes that the “team will relocate to Orlando, Florida in late 2024.”

Many Imagineers and other Cast Members set to move are still hoping the relocation will be canceled, especially considering the political situation in Florida.

After Disney finally spoke out against the Parental Rights in Education bill, a.k.a. the “Don’t Say Gay” bill, in Florida, Governor Ron DeSantis launched an attack against them, mainly trying to dissolve the Reedy Creek Improvement District. LGBTQIA+ Cast Members and allies don’t necessarily feel safe moving to Florida and many are concerned about the possible dissolution of Reedy Creek.

The jobs being relocated to Florida would be lucrative for the state and Disney. They are expected to get an estimated $570 million in tax breaks over the next two decades.
