Timeline: Disney’s long feud with Ron DeSantis



The Walt Disney Co. is suing Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R), accusing him of violating the entertainment giant’s constitutional rights, sparking a contentious court battle between two of Florida’s power centers.

It is the latest skirmish in an ongoing dispute between the Walt Disney World Resort’s parent company and the state’s conservative governor. For more than a year, Disney has openly opposed Republican-imposed restrictions on coverage of issues such as homosexuality and gender identity in public schools. DeSantis, meanwhile, criticized Disney as a “woke society” while working with the legislature to limit its power.
