The Walt Disney Company made plans to move about 2,000 people from California to Florida. Specifically, these moves were to be to Lake Nona and take place this year and next. Given the current relationship with Florida, some were upset by this move and wished to stay in California. Some even left the company.

After this big announcement, the Walt Disney Company had a falling out with the state of Florida. Soon after, Disney shared that the move to Lake Nona is delayed until 2026. They previously bought more acreage for this move, and some employees had already sold California homes and begun looking for Florida homes.

Today, Bob Iger returned to Walt Disney Studio Lot to hear from the heart of the Walt Disney Company, the employees, and Cast Members in a Town Hall meeting. During this meeting, he shared plans to continue a hiring freeze, plans to merge with Apple, and also the future of the Park Reservation system.

One of the first questions was regarding the relocation of many employees to Florida. At this time, a definitive answer was not given by Iger.

Iger shared that he is both aware of this plan to relocate and the announced delayed move. Before committing to a plan, Iger will first look at how this relocation may affect the company and how many employees would be affected by this move.

Iger concluded by saying, “I don’t in any way mean to indicate reversing the decision that was made, but it is something that I will look into.”

Unfortunately, this is not the yes or no answer that many employees may be hoping for. At this time, it appears that the idea of relocation will be reviewed, but many employees will still be waiting for a definite plan.

“I don’t in any way mean to indicate reversing the decision that was made, but it is something that I will look into.”
