• No one looks good with Disney’s busted hotel deal

    Last week was an ugly one for both the Disneyland Resort and the City of Anaheim. Disneyland announced it was suspending plans to build a luxury hotel once the city revealed it would not honor a planned tax incentive for the development after Disney moved the hotel a few football fields south of its original site.
