Your dreams are about to come true.
Disney announced that they are going to move 2,000 of their employees to a "new regional campus" in Flordia. The chairman of Disney Parks, Experience and Products, Josh D'Amaro, announced this to the employees Thursday.
D'Amaro sent a letter to his crews about their relocation, giving them time to plan their relocation. They had been planning this since 2019 for the early stages, but due to the pandemic, this plan was halted.
Now that things are manageable, the plan is back in motion. Disney has yet to announce what positions are to move to Florida from California, but it'll involve people who work at the park.
Orlando already has 60,000 staff working there, and moving 2,000 staff there is about 5% of their total staff in California. The company will assist their workers on the relocation and the move will be held in the next 18 months.
Disneyland Florida is one of their biggest main attraction to the park. The property in Florida is bigger and it has more rides than in California, so it's bound to have more visitors there.
This strategy will help the collaborations and creativity between sites, said Josh D'Amaro. It can help promote diversity and integration.
What this means for people living in Florida, Lake Nona
So far, the responses were positive to this decision. Businesses around the area, currently, look forward to this decision as it means more customers for them. And since most businesses have been closed for nearly a year, it can help to jump start the economy back up again.
I don't know about you, but this seems like a light at the end of the tunnel. After Disneyland has been closed for a year, and now that they are working to get back to business, it seems like an important project is in motion for us.
