The Walt Disney Company has confirmed they will be relocating approximately 2,000 jobs from California to a Lake Nona campus not far from Orlando. The move — which was first reported in January — is to take place over the next 18 months.
The Lake Nona campus will house Walt Disney Imagineers and more professionals in the Disney Parks, Experiences and Products division who are not fully dedicated to Disneyland. The 2,000 positions represent less than 5% of Disney’s total jobs in California. The size and specific site of the campus have not been confirmed.
“This new project will create a dynamic environment to support our expanding business — a brand-new regional campus which will be built in the vibrant Lake Nona community of Orlando,” Josh D’Amaro, chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Products, said. “This new regional campus gives us the opportunity to consolidate our teams and be more collaborative and impactful both from a creative and operational standpoint.”
