‘Don’t Say Gay’ feud advances with new proposed legislation from Florida Republicans

TALLAHASSEE — Florida lawmakers will move to increase state control of Walt Disney World’s private government, according to a notice published Friday, the latest development in a feud over a law critics have dubbed “Don’t Say Gay.”

The notice posted on the Osceola County website says the Republican-controlled statehouse will take up legislation changing the structure and powers of the Reedy Creek Improvement District, as the 55-year-old Disney government is known.

A bill has not yet been filed detailing exactly what changes would be under consideration. The notice serves as a procedural step in what has become a closely watched process between Disney and Florida.

Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis last year signed legislation that would dissolve the Disney government in June 2023, a moved aimed at punishing the company for its public opposition to a law that bars instruction on sexual orientation and gender identity in kindergarten through third grade and lessons deemed not age appropriate.

Additionally, Disney said it would suspend political donations in the state and that it would support organizations working to oppose the education law.

DeSantis and statehouse Republicans slammed Disney, saying the entertainment giant had become a purveyor of so-called woke ideologies that are inappropriate for children.

The squabble marked a rare moment of discord between the state and Disney, one of Florida’s largest employers and a major political donor. It also provided another front in an ongoing culture war that has made DeSantis one of the nation’s most popular Republicans.

The creation of Reedy Creek district was instrumental in Disney’s decision to build near Orlando in the 1960s. Having a separate government allows the company to provide zoning, fire protection, utilities and infrastructure services on its sprawling property.

The language of Friday’s notice aligns with assurances Republican lawmakers and DeSantis have made regarding the district’s future, including a pledge that the district’s debts and bond obligations would not fall to local county governments.

The notice also says the legislation would intend to increase state accountability of the district, change how its governing body is selected, and revise permitting rules and the district’s regulatory frameworks, among other things.

“Disney will no longer control its own government, will live under the same laws as everyone else, will be responsible for their outstanding debts, and will pay their fair share of taxes,” Taryn Fenske, a spokeswoman for DeSantis, said in a written statement. “Imposing a state-controlled board will also ensure that Orange County cannot use this issue as a pretext to raise taxes on Orange County residents.”

The Legislature is set to meet for its next regular session in March.

Florida lawmakers to get proposal for state-run board that would oversee Disney World

ORLANDO — Osceola County on Friday posted noticed of its plans to seek legislation that would allow for the dissolution of the self-governing district that oversees Walt Disney World and instead appoint a state-run board to manage the sprawling theme park kingdom.

In a statement posted on the Central Florida county’s website, Osceola County plans to ask the Republican-controlled legislature to make changes to the Reedy Creek Improvement District, what the 55-year-old Disney government is known as.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis Holds News Conference With Florida Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo MIAMI, FLORIDA – MAY 17: Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis speaks during a press conference at the University of Miami Health System Don Soffer Clinical Research Center on May 17, 2022 in Miami, Florida. The governor held the press conference to announce that the state of Florida would be providing $100 million for Florida’s cancer research centers, after he signs the state budget into law. / Getty Images

The current district spans Orange and Osceola counties and has allowed Disney for decades to control the land currently occupied by its gigantic theme park operations.

The intent of the change would be to create a new board to govern the district and its members, according to FOX News, would be appointed by the governor. 

“The corporate kingdom has come to an end,” Taryn Fenske, spokesperson for Gov. Ron DeSantis, told Fox News in a statement posted on its website. “Under the proposed legislation, Disney will no longer control its own government, will live under the same laws as everyone else, will be responsible for their outstanding debts, and will pay their fair share of taxes.”

The current proposal also would require that Reedy Creek’s existing “debts and bond obligations held by the District remain with the District and are not transferred to other governments by retaining the District’s authority related to indebtedness and taxation.”

Disney is one of Florida’s biggest private employers, last year saying it had more than 60,000 workers in the state. 

The creation of the Reedy Creek Improvement District, and the control it gave Disney over 27,000 acres in Florida, was a crucial element in the company’s plans to build near Orlando in the 1960s.  

The legislation is another chapter in the ongoing battle between Burbank, Calif.-based Disney and DeSantis.

The governor last April signed a bill to dissolve the private government Walt Disney World controls on its property in the state, punishing the entertainment giant for opposing a new law that critics labeled “Don’t Say Gay.”

The move has strained the relationships between the state’s Republican-led government and a major political player whose theme parks have transformed Orlando into one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations.

For DeSantis, the attack on Disney is the latest front in a culture war waged over policies involving race, gender and the coronavirus, battles he has harnessed to make himself one of the most popular Republicans in the country and a likely 2024 presidential candidate.

The law eliminated the Reedy Creek Improvement District as well as a handful of other similar districts by June 2023. 

The measure had allowed for the districts to be reestablished, leaving an avenue to renegotiate the future of the deal that allows the company to provide services such as zoning, fire protection, utilities and infrastructure.

But if lawmakers approve the changes sought by Osceola County, the self-governing board would be replaced by a state-run board, giving the sitting governor enormous control over Disney’s operations.

Bring The Family For The Fun But Bring A Good Appetite For The Fine Food At Walt Disney World Resorts

At Topolino’s Terrace, guests can enjoy indoor dining or terrace dining, alfresco style. T

Preston Mack, photographer

More than once before I went on a recent trip to Walt Disney World Resorts in Florida was I asked by naïve friends, “Why?” When I replied that I was going to check out the restaurants, my inquirers—none of whom had been to Disney in Lake Buena Vista or Disneyland in Anaheim since they had young children or perhaps ever—looked dumbfounded, assuming that all food service at those resorts was geared either to small fry or so tied to a “theme” that a good adult restaurant was impossible to find.

That myopic view hasn’t been vaguely true for more than fifty years, and as someone who, at the age of 10, went to Disneyland the year it opened in 1955 and many times to Disney, which opened in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, in 1971, I’ve seen the evolution of food service from being good, wholesome and basic to extraordinarily sophisticated and well worth a trip for anyone who also intends to stay at some grandly conceived resorts, swim, play golf and relax, with or without kids in tow. In fact, few restaurants in the city of Orlando or Miami would compare well with the best at Disney.

Cream-filled burrata is a sumptuous first course at Topolino’s.

Disney

Food service got serious at Disney with the opening of the international pavilions at EPCOT Centre in 1982, by contracting established master restaurateurs like Paul Bocuse, Roger Vergé and Claude Troisgros to open two French restaurants on the property, along with other outside professionals to open the Italian Alfredo the Original of Rome, Chinese Nine Dragons and Moroccan Marrakesh.

In addition, themed restaurants like The Hollywood Brown Derby at Disney-MGM Studios (now Disney’s Hollywood Studios) and some highly innovative restaurants in the hotels and resorts—like the California Grill at Disney’s Contemporary Resort and Victoria and Albert’s at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa—were directly aimed at the hundreds of thousands of adults who want more than burgers and pizza after spending $109 to $189 for a one-day pass.

Since then Disney has opened more than 500 food service units, including Broadway Joe’s Marvelous Margaritas ($15) on the boardwalk. And, because of its enormous clout in the market and the rigors of its health rules, Disney can order the finest, most consistent meat, seafood and provender in the global market. That goes for stocking wine cellars, with a few of the resort hotel restaurants having award-winning wine lists that would rival the best in any U.S. restaurant. EPCOT Centre’s annual International Food Festival is one of the most extensive and popular in the state.

Food prices are also comparable with upscale restaurants in Florida, although in décor and sightlines alone, which include a nightly fireworks show, you get a lot more bang for the buck at Disney.

A wintry squash soup is flavored with a touch of espresso and annatto at Topolino’s.

Disney

On my three-day trip, then, I sought to go back to some established restaurants—which are always being refreshed or re-imagined—and some, post-Covid, new ones.

Of the latter is Topolino’s Terrace in the Riviera Resort, so called after Italians’ name for Mickey Mouse, though there is nothing to remind you of the character in the dining room. The menu focuses on the cuisine of the French and Italian Riviera, overseen by veteran chef Dominique Filoni, whose work I’ve known since he had his own Mediterranean restaurant outside of Philadelphia years ago.

The spacious dining room’s décor is done largely in browns, taupe and gold colors, with a huge shimmering chandelier, though the lighting needs to be brought up on the bare brown tables to show off the beauty of the food.

Among the starters is a house-made creamy burrata with black truffle, artichokes, grapes, verjus gel and yeasty, warm focaccia ($12). Impeccably fried fritto misto includes artichokes, clamshell mushrooms and zucchini with an herbed emulsion and a tangy-sweet golden raisins mostarda conserve ($12 ). Outstanding was red kuri squash soup I had owing to its out-of-the-ordinary flavors like espresso, annatto and dried fruit granola for texture ($14 ). Luscious, slow-roasted octopus comes out very tender with a soffritto, crispy polenta-like panisse, saffron aïoli, roasted garlic and a touch of mint ($19.)

A blanquette of pork shank is a hearty take on blanquette de veal at Topolino’s.

Disney

Pastas are all delicious and come in ample portions. Plump but light gnocchi was lavished with rich braised lamb shoulder ragù, mushrooms, red wine reduction and sweet carrots ($18). Rigatoni comes with a braised chicken sugo, broccolini, pancetta and wild mushrooms ($34). Lobster is impeccably cooked to retain its moisture and gains sweetness from English peas and rich, creamy sauce américaine with pickled onions and a tuile colored with squid ink, all atop linguine ($52).

Among the main courses the sole meunière is a bargain at $50, if a bit overelaborated with sea beans, capers, asparagus, English peas, toybox tomatoes and roasted potatoes that detract from the classic simplicity of the dish. A massive veal chop had a slightly smoky flavor, with browned pommes fondant cooked with its juices, baby turnips, and a spicy Sicilian salsa verde ($53), while the pork shank blanquette with parsnips, polenta, apple butter and chimichurri was a dazzlement of gusty flavors ($46). I had some of the best sea scallops in a while at Topolino’s, with butternut squash risotto, root vegetable crackers and cioppino jus ($52). That most Provencal of all dishes, bouillabaisse ($48) teemed with morsels of red snapper, branzino, clams, shrimps and mussels in a reduction of fennel and a saffron rouille.

A classic chocolate opera cake at Topolino’s is rich enough to share after a big meal.

Disney

There is a cheeseboard of international selections served with honeycomb, figs, mushroom conserve and Marcona almonds ($21), and the desserts are requisite to share, like vanilla and citrus crème brûlée with morello cherry compote, strawberry foam, sugared beignets, and chocolate meringues ($14) and the warm chocolate cake with a caramel center, Chantilly cream and raspberries ($15).

Like many Disney restaurants, Topolino’s features a Disney character breakfast ($49 for adults, $29 for children).

A t Citricos the decor is themed to Disney’s two Mary Poppins movies.

Disney

Recast from what had been a Mediterranean restaurant, Citricos in the Grand Floridian Resort is now more eclectic. And, despite its name, the theme here is from the film Mary Poppins Returns, with the backs of dining chairs and server stations done with sprays of cherry blossoms, for Cherry Tree Lane, while the chairs in the lounges are configured like Mary’s corset. Birds perch in the light fixtures, and the floral pattern in the rug is from Mary Poppins’s carpetbag in the original 1964 movie. There is also a painting of Cherry Tree Lane, where the Banks family resides in both films. Inside the private Sommelier Room you can see the real carpetbag and Polly, her iconic umbrella, on display.

Chef Andres Mendoza works out of a big, brightly lighted open kitchen to produce a splendid and very balanced menu that begins with appetizers like rice balls called arancinistudded with wild mushrooms, with a truffle aïoli and Champagne vinaigrette ($16).

A beautiful corn bisque is studded with popcorn for texture at Citricos.

Disney

Compressed star fruit, passion fruit, Vietnamese nuoc cham condiment and blood orange puffed tapioca underpin full flavored citrus-cured hamachi ($21,) while Berkshire pork belly comes with boniato and a plantain croquette, salsa verde and jicama ($18) that provide crunch and citric balance.

The entrees have a hard-to-choose-among range. Both seafood dishes are very good— Golden tile fish with juniper rice and chorizo-flecked risotto, fresh Key West pink shrimp and a tomato confit ($46), and a butter-poached Florida mahi-mahi with mashed fingerling potatoes, grilled asparagus, local mushrooms and a beurre blanc tinged with grapefruit ($42).

Sweet and tangy flavors add to the tender and slow-cooked barbecued short ribs at Citricos.

Disney

On the carnivore side there is guava-slathered barbecued short ribs with creamy cheddar cheese grits, and roasted poblano chile. The only disappointment was an overly lavish plate of rigatoni bolognese with seasonal vegetables, hen of the woods mushrooms, and a bland vegan “egg yolk” ($15 ). But you should try the side dish of truffled mac & cheese made with house-made potato gnocchetti, black truffles and a sprinkling of tarragon ($21). By the way, wine suggestions (extra) are listed with each main course.

Pastry Chef Kristine Farmer’s desserts match the other courses, including an orange blossom flan with blood orange jelly, orange-scented shortbread and orange blossom honey ($13); an apple rose served with marzipan, raspberry jam and frozen coconut milk ($13); and a chocolate torte financier with a dark chocolate ganache, Morello cherry and vanilla mascarpone cream ($14).

The wine list has fifty-plus selections, heaviest in reds, and mark-ups are somewhat lower than you’ll find elsewhere in Florida’s fine dining restaurants. Surprising, then, that none have vintages listed, which are “subject to change.”

Just reading the menu descriptions of Topolino’s and Citricos gives you a sense of Disney’s range when it comes to upscale dining. But in the execution there are few to rival them in the South.

Jair Bolsonaro ditched the inauguration of Brazil’s new president, fleeing to the home of an MMA fighter near Disney World: report

  • Jair Bolsonaro was missing from the inauguration of Brazil’s new president, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva.
  • Bolsonaro rented an MMA fighter’s house in Florida to flee multiple investigations, according to The New York Times.
  • In Bolsonaro’s place, a 33-year-old garbage collector gave Lula da Silva the presidential sash.

Brazil recognized its new president, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, with an elaborate inauguration ceremony on Sunday. 

The leftist incumbent snagged the office from the country’s far-right president, Jair Bolsonaro, in a tight runoff election in October. Bolsonaro refused to formally concede the election, and on Sunday he ditched the inauguration for a trip to Orlando, Florida, The New York Times reported.

According to the NYT, Bolsonaro flew there on Friday and plans to stay for at least a month while he faces investigations from his term as president. The Times reported that he is staying in a rented home owned by an unnamed professional mixed-martial-arts fighter, just miles from Disney World.

As per tradition, Bolsonaro was supposed to pass Lula da Silva a presidential sash during Sunday’s ceremony, symbolizing a peaceful transition of power. Instead, according to The Times, a voice announced that Lula da Silva would accept the sash from “the people of Brazil,” and a 33-year-old garbage collector placed the sash over his shoulder.

Bolsonaro is facing five inquiries, according to The Times, including an investigation into his misinformation-laden attacks on Brazil’s voting machines and another into his possible links to “digital militias” that spread misinformation. He no longer has the prosecutorial immunity that comes with the office of Brazil’s President.

The Times also reported that an anonymous source, who is a close friend of the Bolsonaro family, said the former president is waiting in Florida to see if the Lula da Silva administration will push any of those investigations.

She wrote, “After we finished the #CandlightCelebration at Epcot, I’ve been blessed to spend the week with my family here at Walt Disney World!”

The “Meet Me in Montana” singer also showcased her new hair – straying away from her usual cascading brunette locks.

Osmond was pictured with blonde hair – which she later revealed to be fake in the comments section of her Instagram.

One fan wrote to Osmond, “You changed your hair color. Looks good,” to which the singer replied, “No, it’s one of my fun wigs.”

Another follower wrote in part, “You make a beautiful blonde,” to which the “Donny & Marie” star answered, “Thanks! You should see my purple wig.”

In another photo, Osmond showed a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the trip with her family, photographing her husband holding hands with her grandchildren as they strolled through the park.

Osmond and Craig were initially married in 1982, only to divorce in 1985. The couple share one son together, Stephen James Craig.

Osmond went on to have two biological children and five adoptive children with her second husband Brian Blosil, although they divorced in 2007.

In a 2021 interview with AV Club, Harris said that he and Hargitay became “fast friends” after meeting at an event in Puerto Rico years ago.

“I was a fan of her work and had heard she was the nicest person and now we’re close family friends,” he said. “And she is the funniest, nicest, most generous individual. I can’t say enough about her and her husband, Peter [Hermann], and we’ve just become fast friends. So any time anyone can engage with Mariska and Peter, I highly recommend it.”

Harris added that his daughter, Harper, is good friends with Amaya, Hargitay’s daughter, who she adopted in 2011.

“I just think they’re the loveliest,” Harris said about Hargitay and her family. “She works so hard, Peter works so hard, and they still manage to maintain such great family relations with each other. And to do it with such wisdom and humor and grace. I think the world of them.”
