Default Disney's Nuclear Power Option

I ran across this article on how much civic authority Disney was granted when creating Reedy Creek. Its interesting that not only can they have their own police force, they can also build their own nuclear power plant.

"They also asked for and were given the authority to manufacture distilled beverages. Expect a Disney reactor to materialize about the same time as Disney-branded small-batch bourbon."

Knob Creek Disney Select Single Barrel Reserve Bourbon

Now bring on the power plant. Would be a very good move.

Cheers.

Florida gave Disney/RCID everything they asked for, with the possible exception of seceding from the State of Florida.

Iím assuming that Dr Bunsen Honeydew would be running the nuclear plant. Ably assisted by Beaker.

They could, potentially, get real world nuclear engineers to do this as well. Likely work better.

Cheers.
