From the OCRegister:
Disney’s recent announcement comes as it continues to build out Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, its largest-ever, single-themed land expansion at Disneyland, and more than a year after touting the Disneyland Eastern Gateway Project, a massive development on the east side of the Disneyland Resort, to help prepare for the boost in attendance expected when the Star Wars themed land opens.
The Eastern Gateway Project, planned for the east side of Harbor Boulevard, included a seven-story, 6,900 spot parking structure, a new transportation hub with security screening and a pedestrian bridge over Harbor Boulevard. The bridge, on the site of the former Carousel Inn hotel, would have helped bring in guests onto the esplanade area of Disneyland and Disney California Adventure near the ticket booths.
Along with the development of Star Wars land, the Eastern Gateway project was part of a $1 billion-plus investment deal Disney struck with Anaheim in 2015 in exchange for the city to not impose an entertainment tax for 30 to 45 years.
