The Central Florida Tourism Oversight District will attempt to take back its power from Disney at its April meeting.

The Central Florida Tourism Oversight District will attempt to take back its power from Disney at its April meeting on Wednesday, April 19.

The DeSantis-appointed Central Florida Tourism Oversight District Board will meet Wednesday.

The five supervisors are expected to vote on a resolution that will give them “supreme authority” over the former Reedy Creek district.

The resolution would also give them complete control over land development in the cities of Lake Buena Vista and Bay Lake.

The move comes after the former Reedy Creek Improvement District board signed over its power to Disney before the state took over the district.

Earlier this week, Gov. Ron DeSantis asked the legislature to terminate any and all agreements the former board had entered into with Disney, and to open up the parks to regular state inspections.
