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.


About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
