Gov. Ron DeSantis is proposing that the state take control of the governmental district covering Walt Disney World.
A federal judge said three Florida residents failed to show how they'd be harmed if the district is eliminated.
The lawsuit alleges that DeSantis violated state law and the First Amendment, all to punish Disney.
The law sets a June 2023 termination date for the Reedy Creek Improvement District that governs Disney World property.
The move is a significant escalation of Florida Republicans' battle with Disney over the "Don't Say Gay" law.
In 2018, $277 million was generated in Orange County by a 6 percent tax on hotel rooms. Most of that revenue will go to Visit Orlando, a nonprofit group to promote the tourism industry in Orlando — including major theme parks like Disney World and Universal Orlando.
Members of the firefighters union at Walt Disney World say the Disney Skyliner accident this past weekend shows why they need more personnel to cover the growing resort.
According to Spectrum News 13, three guests who were evacuated from the Skyliner — including two from the same gondola — were taken to a hospital.
