Reedy Creek Improvement District is the 39-square-mile governing jurisdiction and special taxing district created in 1968 for Walt Disney World Resort’s land that acts with the same authority and responsibility as a county government.

The district includes two cities -- Bay Lake and Lake Buena Vista -- and has its own fire department and staff, and contracts law enforcement from local counties.

The district has outstanding bonds that become a cause for concern for some bond rating agencies regarding the fallout of its upcoming June 23 dissolution.
