Anaheim City Council Gives Final Approval for DisneylandForward

Anaheim City Council Gives Final Approval for DisneylandForward DisneylandForward-1024x573

Late Tuesday evening, the Anaheim City Council gave its final approval for DisneylandForward! Disneyland has worked closely with city staff, neighbors, and the local community for the past three years to ensure that the project will be a win for everyone. With the updated land use approvals through DisneylandForward, the company will be able to build new entertainment experiences, create thousands of new jobs, and bring new revenue streams to the city of Anaheim.

Nearly 70 years ago, Walt Disney opened his original theme park and created a new standard of immersive experiences for people of all ages. Now, it’s time for the next chapter in Disneyland Resort’s legacy. Disneyland is ready to build on decades of innovation, creativity, and storytelling to bring new, exciting experiences to its guests.

Disneyland says it will invest “at least $1.9 billion in the resort in the first 10 years. Cal State Fullerton’s economic impact study projects increased revenues of about $15 million annually for Anaheim from each $1 billion we invest. This will help fund necessary community services, including additional fire and police, parks, and libraries.”

We’ve also committed to a unique benefits package for Anaheim and its residents, including $30 million for affordable housing, $8 million for parks, $85 million in traffic improvements and pedestrian safety, and continued investment in workforce development programs.

DisneylandForward will bring over 4,500 operational jobs to Disneyland Resort — which is very exciting since more than 2,200 people apply for hourly roles every week — along with nearly 9,000 construction jobs within the first 10 years.
