Disney caught trying to spend $319 of taxpayer money on a 3 mile streetcar


MIckey Mouse Streetcar

“During questioning by Orange County Transportation Authority directors Thursday morning, Anaheim City Councilwoman Kris Murray acknowledged what insiders have been saying for months about the city’s planned streetcar project: A major reason for the transit line is to allow expansion of the Disneyland Resort,” according to the Voice of OC.

West Katella Avenue and West Ball Road Ball, which border the park, are “beyond capacity,” Murray said. “If we’re ever going to see a third gate at Disneyland,” she said, “we need to get cars off the road.”

Is it right for Disneyland to try to spend $319 million in taxpayer dollars to build a 3.2-mile streetcar project that will only serve them?  Shouldn’t Disney/ABC spend their own money on this vanity project?

Kudos to OCTA Board Members Jeff Lalloway (Irvine Councilman) and Todd Spitzer (OC Supervisor) for asking the hard questions and not allowing the City of Anaheim and Disneyland to run off with our money!
