More chunks of the Disney empire are being sold off for housing, including a 349-acre parcel going to the developers of the massive Horizon West community in west Orange County.
The new Disney land sales also include a 60-acre site south of Seidel Road that would be reserved for a new high school serving the Horizon West area.
The Walt Disney Co. reportedly is selling the 349-acre site, set around Panther Lake, north of Seidel and southeast of the Orange County National Golf Center, to Centex Homes.

First off, how confusing is that, that there is an Orange County both in Florida and in California and that both US Disney parks are in or near an Orange County!?
Is this land contiguous with the rest of the Disney holdings (where the parks are)? If so, I can't imagine why they would ever think selling it was a good idea. But I guess it's not adjacent, according to the article.
