Phone Calls Attacking Disneyland

It has to do with Disney’s opposition to the proposed permanent housing in the Anaheim Resort district.

Details after the jump (I get a little political again).

I wrote before on this issue.  Disney is suing to block Anaheim approval of permanent housing in the Anaheim Resort district.

I just got a call from someone explaining that they had two questions for me.  They asked if I was aware of this lawsuit, and they asked me what I though about it.  I could tell by the phrasing of the questions, it is an effort to raise support for the housing and counter Disney.

I explain my views in the linked post.  As I told the caller, I think Disney has every right to tell someone else what to do with their property as long as we allow others to tell Disney what to do with its property.  I doubt Disneyland Resort officials would care all that much about permanent housing going in next door IF… ***IF*** Disney wouldn’t have to face subsequent opposition by those very residents for its one developments.

You can’t have it both ways.  If a City Council can tell property owners what they can and can’t do with their properties, then the most powerful influencers who can sway that City Council are going to win – in general.  Solution?  Guarantee Disney it can do what it wants with its own property in exchange for letting the housing proposal go forward.
