Walt Disney World is truly a special place. Not just because of Mickey, but also because the Reedy Creek Improvement District upon which Disney World rests is a one-of-a-kind special district under Florida law. Disney is responsible for almost all of the public services in the district, including trash disposal and issuing property taxes (which it pays to itself). At least, that’s how it was until now. The special district status is in jeopardy after Florida legislators took umbrage at Disney’s public opposition to Florida's HB 1557, commonly known as the “Don’t Say Gay” bill.

Will Disney World lose its Vatican-like status? What happens if it does? Are there First Amendment issues to consider? We discuss on this sidebar episode.
