Walt Disney Imagineering Move to Lake Nona Delayed to 2026

This announcement came at an all-hands-on-deck meeting today. Some employees were already searching for homes and are understandably upset about the delay because they had already sold their California homes.

Other Imagineers were upset by the relocation plan already, and some chose not to stay with the company. Many have urged Disney to reverse the decision to move, especially considering Florida Governor Ron Desantis’ recent attacks on the company and the passing of the “Don’t Say Gay” bill.

The Walt Disney Company purchased roughly 60 acres for the new Lake Nona campus.
