From employee shifts to health and safety regulations, it has certainly been a wild series of months for one of the biggest companies in the world. Now, Disney is making yet another big decision — relocating more than 2000 employees to Florida!

Disney announced plans today to move more than 2,000 professional employees from California to the Lake Nona community of Orlando, FL. This community will be home to a new Disney campus, one that had been rumored earlier this year.

Employees asked to relocate will mostly be those in the Disney Parks, Experiences, and Products division without full dedication to Disneyland Resort. Also included are some who work with the international parks. This move is scheduled to happen over the course of 18 months, lasting through the end of next year.

Josh D’Amaro, chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Products said this about the change: “As someone who has moved with my family from California to Florida and back again, I understand that relocation is a big change, not only for the employee, but also for their families.” He shared that the 18 month-long window would allow for more flexibility.


At this time, no completion date or location for the campus has been announced. We’ll make sure to let you know as soon as we find out more details, so stay tuned to AllEars.

  1. Why are they moving employees out of California? What does this mean for Disneyland? There are plenty of people needing work in Florida so why not hire in state rather than making people relocate?

  2. Kind of concerned why this is happening when there are many loyal Walt Disney World employees in Florida who have not been called back to work…..seems to me they should come first?!?
