For the past few months, The Walt Disney Company has been shaken by controversy. The corporation officially condemned Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ Parental Rights in Education Act, prompting a barrage of vengeance from Republican politicians around the country.

Aside from the current revelations, Disney CEO Bob Chapek has long been a divisive figure in the Disney Parks community. Despite public outrage, he continues to boast about the success of Genie+ and the Park Pass system at Walt Disney World and Disneyland.

While Disney fans may oppose Chapek, The Walt Disney Company’s board of directors has made no public indication that they intend to fire him.

Fans have taken advantage of the situation to blame Chapek for problems at the Disney Parks. Recently a group of Disney enthusiasts hypothesized that the structures at Walt Disney World’s theme parks are warmer than they used to be, accusing Chapek of cutting air conditioning to save money.

Not to start conspiracies or anything but I’m 99.9999% sure some of the buildings at EPCOT aren’t as cold as they used to be. Every degree warmer saves them a nickel! Bravo Chapek

A few fans agreed, with Twitter user Ben Grimaldi writing:

Certainly felt this way a few weeks ago.

Some Guests prefer a higher indoor temperature, despite the Florida heat. User @wishful_thinking wrote:

Anecdotally, one of the first things International guests mention — and genuinely dislike — is how cold they are indoors. 🥶

Brazilian Disney blogs share mocking, perplexed packing tips. “Expect to be boiling hot outside, freezing cold inside, & soaking wet in torrential rain.”

Walt Disney World has not officially announced that temperatures in air-conditioned structures at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, or Magic Kingdom have been raised. The Walt Disney Company CEO, Bob Chapek, has not publicly stated any plans to reduce energy use at Disney Parks through reduced air conditioning. is a participant in the Amazon Associates Program.
