Rift deepens between Disneyland and Anaheim.

Having lost a recent city council vote that authorized low income housing in the previously zoned resort district, Disneyland has gone on the offensive. The Los Angeles Times and The AP both examine exactly what this could mean for the previously cozy relationship between Disneyland and Anaheim’s leaders.

Let’s not pretend that Disneyland is an innocent player in this. They played the cities of Long Beach and Anaheim off each other to get concessions to build the second gate (originally to be either WESTCOT or DisneySea) as cheaply as possible. This process resulted in the Anaheim Resort Zoning district that both sides are fighting over now. I wonder if there are some hard feelings amongst the current city council members.

    I would think the full coffers brought in by taxes and tourism would more than offset any hard feelings.

    This sounds like a couple of local politicians looking out for their own pockets rather than the good of the city.

    Low-income housing should be built, but that isn’t the place.
