Disney opening a campus in Florida!

It's a whole new world!

The Walt Disney Company said that they're planning on building a new regional campus in central Florida to house at least 2,000 professional employees who will be relocating from Southern California to work in digital technology, finance, and product development.

In a letter to employees, Josh D'Amaro, chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Products, said the move would allow creative and business teams to be better integrated.

The company already has a theme park resort, of course, Walt Disney World, in Florida.
By the way - did you know that Walt Disney World is the size of San Francisco?

Yeah, that's pretty crazy.
Meanwhile, it feels like Disneyland here in Southern California is like a town compared to Walt Disney World.

The new Disney campus will be located about 20miles to the east of Walt Disney World, in a neighborhood by Orlando International Airport.

"Florida is known for its rich culture of hospitality and active lifestyle as well as a lower cost of living with no state income tax," D'Amaro said in the employee letter.

While the California-based company is still figuring out which employees will be asked to relocate, they likely will be those in the parks division who aren't working full-time at Disneyland in California or in the international parks business.
