Will “City of Disney” Be the New Name of Lake Buena Vista and Bay Lake?

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

According to a proposal to the state Constitution Revision Commission, a man named Loyal Millett is suggesting that “the cities of Bay Lake and Lake Buena Vista be dissolved and reincorporated as the City of Disney.”

The Constitution Revision Commission meets every 20 years to consider changes to the state constitution. This time around, they solicited input from the public on how to make the state better. Over 2000 proposals have been submitted. The deadline was last September.

Now, the commission must review the submissions, and for any proposal to move forward, it requires sponsorship from one commissioner and approval from 9 more. If that happens, the proposals will appear on the ballot in 2018 for voters to decide its ultimate fate.

The proposal to rename the cities came from Loyal Millett, an Uber driver from Salt Lake City. He alone submitted over 100 proposals.

The state of Florida is the only state in the US to have such a commission, where anyone can make proposals to change the state constitution. This is the third time the commission has convened since it was created by a constitutional amendment (of course) in 1968.

Early in 2007, Jason began his involvement with the planning for what became Celebration 25, the unofficial fan gathering to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Epcot®. Soon thereafter, Jason met Tom Corless at a pin trading meet in New Jersey, and became part of the WDW News Today podcast starting with Episode 17.
