Disney's New Luxury Hotel Slated for 2021


If you've been to Anaheim in the past year, you may have noticed a major surge in hotel construction. In addition to the dozens of hotels that have sprung up in the past few years, a new tax incentive passed by Anaheim City Council last summer has brought in even more luxury hotels. And now, Disney is finally cashing in on it.

The first new hotel at the Disneyland Resort since the Grand Californian opened in 2001, it will be a four-diamond hotel with a projected average stay of $450 a night.

According to the OC Register, Anaheim Mayor Tom Tait is disappointed with Disney's decision.

“I don’t think Disney needs a subsidy,” he said. “They do quite well without one. Our city needs that tax revenue to provide basic services to our residents. ... The council already voted to not tax them for 45 years, and that’s not enough. So, they want us to write them a check every year for 20 years. I think it’s outrageous.”

The sad thing is, he's right. Tait vehemently opposed the tax incentive, which narrowly passed in June of last year. It allows hotels to keep 70% of bed taxes for over 20 years. Yikes. Looks like Anaheim seriously dropped the ball on that one, and I can't blame Disney for banking on this enormous tax break. Half of the city of Anaheim's revenue comes from hotels, and now they'll be cutting tax breaks to them for the next 20 years.

As for my opinion on the hotel, I can't wait to see it, and probably never stay in it. I think the theme will be a Golden Age of Hollywood motif that WDI seems so fond of lately. Think Hollywood Tower Hotel before the Twilight Zone. I can't really imagine what other California themes they could use. Anyway, construction isn't set to begin until 2018, so we've still got a long way to go.

  3. The movie wasn't typical horror film with serial killer that kills many victims. 365movies.is This film was more psychology and mysterious which was very good. megashare9.tv I didn't expect that the main actor of the movie is living in a dream I thought that was her regular life when I saw all of that was only dream I was shocked. This film totally deserves allot of respect. I really enjoyed listening to that song about teddy bears that was hilarious. los movies So don't be afraid this movie really worth your attention and will attract your attention from the first minutes. 123movies free I saw the film yesterday at the German premiere in the presence of the director. I thought the movie was extremely stressful, uncomfortable and showed really bad scenes. zmovie But the movie was great. Exciting, surprising and he went to the substance. Wow. Unfortunately, I saw the twist relatively early, but I was surprised how the film pulled through it. Go watch it and suffer.

  4. When we all introduced ourselves here. We were received warmly by all those who participated in the event. Events at venues in NYC are a lot of fun, giving access to features that aren't always the easiest to get into and aren't always the most wallet friendly.
