The Disney Corporation has a lot of power in this district, including the two incorporated towns of Bay Lake and Lake Buena Vista. Only residents within the district have the authority to vote on district governance, giving Disney an edge over its competition.

The authorities given are extremely broad, allowing Disney to grant their own booze permits. Instead of using the infrastructure of its neighboring counties, they establish their own water, fire departments, transportation, and emergency services.

Disney World is what it looks like if you offer a company total control over an entire city block the size of San Francisco. The business has done well, relying on the park for 14% of its $2 billion yearly revenue.
