Anaheim Election Results Analysis:

"With Sidhu, Brandman, and O’Neil wins, Disney will once again have a favorable majority on the Anaheim City Council. They will join pro-Disney councilmembers Kring and Faessel to bring their votes to 5 while Moreno will rejoin Barnes in the minority with 2 votes.

But while Anaheim and Disneyland look to reset their relationship, they may be limited to what sort of economic assistance the city would provide due to Measure L. While the initiative to increase the minimum wage for certain business that receive economic assistance from Anaheim is leading by 422 votes, it is still too early to call as there are provisional ballots as well as mail-in ballots that need to be counted.

While Anaheim believes the measure does not currently apply to the Disneyland Resort, expect labor unions to challenge that interpretation. They outspent the Disneyland Resort in campaign contributions to support candidates and the measure having spent $1.9 million compared to the Disneyland Resort’s $1.6 million."

Ralph Breaks VR in Downtown Disney will take you on a tour from one virtual world to By Brady Macdonald

"The new Ralph Breaks VR adventure journeys from the Fix-It Felix video game universe of “Wreck-It Ralph” to the world wide web adventure of the upcoming “Ralph Breaks the Internet” animated sequel. Players join video game bad guy Wreck-It Ralph and race car driver/princess Vanellope von Schweetz as they explore the brightest and darkest corners of the internet and online gaming.

The new VR experience begins Nov. 21 at The Void at the Disneyland shopping district.

The Void VR experience lets up to a dozen players at a time interact with virtual objects and special effects in a controlled physical environment using VR headsets and backpacks filled with PC computers and motion-tracking technology."
