CEO Bob Chapek’s pending contract renewal complicates matters as he largely drives the relocation of thousands of workers

Despite Disney’s decision to push back its decision to relocate 2,000 employees in the Disney Parks Experience and Products division from 2023 to 2026, current Imagineers and other DPEP employees said the culture of anxiety and unease remains.

“It’s pure chaos,” one current employee told TheWrap. “It really is.”

Many employees have already begun the relocation process and others — many of them reluctant to move to what they consider a socially regressive state that recently passed the notorious “Don’t Say Gay” law restricting the discussion of LGBTQ+ subjects in schools — say they are now stuck in a state of limbo.
