Ron DeSantis’ Disney oversight board says predecessors undercut power

The new Walt Disney World oversight board selected by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis accused its Disney-controlled predecessors of undercutting its authority by passing restrictive agreements that strip the new board of much of its powers.

The current supervisors of the Central Florida Tourism Oversight District said their predecessors signed an agreement with Disney last month that gave the company maximum development power over the theme park resort in Florida.

“We’re going to have to deal with it and correct it,” DeSantis-appointed board member Brian Aungst said Wednesday. “It’s a subversion of the will of the voters and the Legislature and the governor. It completely circumvents the authority of this board to govern.”
