A proposed housing project in the midst of the Happiest Place on Earth has some Disneyland officials upset. Anaheim City Council members want to build more than 1,000 condos and 200 apartments near the resort to help relieve a housing shortage but Disney officials are fearful it could degrade the area.

Well, if Dinsey paid better perhaps the apartments could be built more "upscale" and their workforce could be taken care of.

It's a problem they've had for a long time. I see their point, but can they really control what goes up outside their own property?

To some extent...depending on their connections to local politics.

They have clout, but it's not like they'd pack up and leave. But if they could make a good case about it hurting their bottom line and ultimately their tax contributions, they might get somewhere with this. That and some VIP passes. ;)

Now this is a switch, isn't it? (user reads the news article, and wonders what a "proposel" is).
Usually it's the housing development raising a stink about something the park wants to do, not the other way around!

Guess what they say is true. It IS a small world after all. :)

The entire neighborhood behind the Disneyland Hotel is referred to by cast members as "felony flats" and was called that a decade ago when I was out there on vacation - no surprise to me reading this article then!
