Texas judge pushes Disney to consider move to Lone Star State

Imagine a trip to Disney being less than a 3-hour car ride away?

Fort Bend County Judge KP George wrote to the chairman of Disney to consider relocating the amusement park from Florida to the Texas county outside of Houston.


Why now? Disney has been critical of Florida's newest passed "Don't Say Gay" law, and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis most recently signed a law to dissolve Reedy Creek Improvement District, a private government controlled by Disney.

"I welcome @Disney to visit Fort Bend County as your next destination while you face attacks from the modern day political extremists like @RonDeSantisFL," George tweeted.

A deeper look: Disney was rumored to be making plans for a new amusement park right outside of Austin in Jerald, Texas last year, but no such plans were found to be in the works.
