According to Reedy Creek Improvement District, the district in which Disney World resides, 62% of the land Disney owns is undeveloped or conservation. Disney has a big commitment to conversation and when they setup Reedy Creek Improvement District, they also built-in rules that require 30% of land to remain conservation.
