We have learned that there is a protest rally and press conference happening tonight at Walt Disney World, coordinated by Organize Florida. The purpose for the event is to encourage Disney CEO, Bob Iger, to resign from Trump’s “Strategic and Policy Forum” Advisory Council. Organize Florida will launch a national campaign for the cause in hopes to bring enough people together to help impact this decision.
The rally is planned to occur right outside of one of the entrances to Walt Disney World at the intersection of Apopka-Vineland Road and Hotel Plaza Boulevard. It started at 4:30PM and various members of the community are expected to attend including Disney employees, labor unions, faith/religious leaders, immigrant organizations, etc.
A rally of this type could have impacts to guests and other regular traffic in the area. Valentine’s Day is a popular dining evening at the resorts, parks and Disney Springs area. If you plan to be in the area tonight, you may want to plan to enter via a different entrance and leave a little bit early so that you won’t have any issues making your reservations.
