Enjoy a fancy dinner at Disneyland in a private suite – for $15,000

"The new experience is called 21 Royal, and the price is also upscale: $15,000. That price includes valet parking, park admission, tax and tip for up to 12 people for the five or more hour experience.

It takes place in what used to be called the Disneyland Dream Suite, but has been renamed 21 Royal. It is in New Orleans Square above the entrance to Pirates of the Caribbean."

Harbor Boulevard businesses create website to oppose Disneyland's Eastern Gateway Project

"Motel and restaurant owners along Harbor Boulevard have created a website listing their concerns with Disneyland’s proposed Eastern Gateway Project.

"Disney wants to build a 23-acre development on the east side of Harbor with a seven-story, 6,900-spot parking structure on Disney Way, a security checkpoint, a transportation hub and a 15-foot-tall pedestrian bridge over Harbor that would lead visitors into Disneyland and Disney California Adventure.

"The Harbor Boulevard Merchants Coalition, a collection of family owned businesses, released saynotodisney.com to map out its arguments, such as the potential loss of customers and foot traffic and safety issues."
