‘Harsh political rhetoric and poor business climate’ force cancellation of Disney’s fourth hotel
Opponents for the ‘No on L’ ballot measure today came out swinging with the recent confirmation that Disneyland Resort has in fact ditched plans for its upcoming four-diamond hotel project.
Todd Ament, CEO/President of the Anaheim Chamber of Commerce, issued the following statement on behalf of the ‘No on Measure L’ campaign:
“Measure L contributed to the harsh political rhetoric and poor business climate in Anaheim, and that led to the cancellation of Disney’s 4th hotel. The jobs lost and future tax revenue eliminated from this news is devastating to Anaheim, and a direct result of special interests trying to pit too many in Anaheim against each other.”
The fourth Disneyland Hotel project faced a litany of setbacks over the past year including some public spats with the city of Anaheim over disagreements on the terms of the new project. Ultimately, the OC Register confirmed today that the doomed project has in fact been ended. The hotel was announced following a fall-through of different plans for the resort when Disney shuttered the “Eastern Gateway Project” which would have brought a massive new parking structure to the property.
