In recent months, there have been a lot of rumors swirling about Disney potentially moving the location of Walt Disney World Resort. With The Walt Disney Company repeatedly praising the success of the Disney Parks, many fans feel that now would be the to introduce a new theme park into the United States. With the continuing conflict between Disney and Florida’s Governor, Ron DeSantis, now seemed like it could be the right time for a move of this kind to take place. However, recent moves from Disney have dispelled any rumors that the company has plans to leave Florida.

While Walt Disney World Resort is certainly not moving the location of Walt Disney World Resort from Orlando, Florida, that hasn’t stopped the company from setting up a new home in Fort Lauderdale.
