I’d agree with you if I honestly believed anyone writing this was bright enough.Part of me wonders if this bill was written to give Disney a number of grounds to sue on. So they get their win for having stopped and owned Disney, and are leaving it to the courts to undo their damage. This thing is that blatant.
Vahle's statement is cautious but precise. It's sufficiently open-ended to allow anyone to read into it whatever they want.Much more reserved and softer tone. Sounds like something is going to be worked out.
They were “ in fear”….huddled under an ergonomic sit to stand desk with Josh and Chrissy McCarthyNow that’s how you craft a statement, friendly, not divisive, and not political in any way. Good job Mr Vahle and PR team, where were you 2 years ago when Chapek stepped into this mess?

It's the kind of statement that could have been drafted weeks ago. It's exactly what it needs to be.
What specific changes make sense?https://www.myfloridahouse.gov/Sections/Documents/loaddoc.aspx?FileName=h0009B.SAC.DOCX&DocumentType=Analysis&BillNumber=0009B&Session=2023B
The staff bill analysis is out. It seems like the legislature has been planning this for a while - the changes on a whole make sense.
The problem is the governor and his appointed board.
What specific changes make sense?
After it’s been engineering that the I-4 corridor has been almost permanently rendered to be in the legislative minority?…I wonder if the senate confirmation of the board members is some angle to try to avoid the critique of no-representation in the board members.
Would you describe them as inoffensive if we were discussing any other municipality, county or district that provided the same services?None of these things on the face of it seem offensive:
- Removing the district’s ability to own and operate airport facilities, certain types of recreational facilities (such as stadiums, civic centers, and convention halls), and “novel and experimental” facilities (such as a nuclear fission power plant);
- Removing the district’s ability to spend public funds to advertise businesses, facilities, and attractions within the district, and to levy tolls;
- Retaining the district’s power to adopt its own planning, zoning, building, and safety codes, while clarifying the application of general law to those codes and requiring any building and safety codes to be substantially similar or provide more stringent standards than the Florida Building Code and Florida Fire Prevention Code;
- Removing sections of the charter that duplicate provisions of general law applicable to the district; and
- Updating or removing, as applicable, cross-references and archaic terminology.
Can you point to a situation where somebody - including myself - has publicly claimed that Reedy Creek has been enforcing substandard or no regulations?Would you describe them as inoffensive if we were discussing any other municipality, county or district that provided the same services?
Number 3 is full on gaslighting that you are validating. The EPCOT Building Code already meets the minimum requirements of the Florida Building Code. The District enforces the Florida Fire Prevention a code, which just demonstrates how clueless those involved actually are when it comes the District. So by calling this reasonable you just validate the lie that the District has been enforcing substandard or no regulations, because there’d be no need to review the use of state regulations.
That Disney is free of state oversight and doesn’t have to follow codes has been one of the lies told to justify action against the District. By saying the plans to fix that “problem” are reasonable you are giving validity to the lie. The regulations are already aligned, exceeded or the same.Can you point to a situation where somebody - including myself - has publicly claimed that reedy creek has been enforcing substandard or no regulations?
Aligning the written regulation with current best practice doesn't mean that anything was wrong before.
Oh, and to answer your first question - Yes.
