Disney Works its Magic for STRs
("Anaheim leaders are reversing their ban on short-term rentals that offer an alternative to hotels to tourists to Disneyland and the area," OC Register - Business News on Jun 5, 2019)
The Anaheim City Council is reversing its 2016 ban on short-term rentals after seemingly recognizing that travelers’ lodging demands are not sufficiently met in the area surrounding Disneyland. Although there is some nuance to how the ban reversal will be implemented—including that STRs in communities with homeowners associations will not be authorized—generally speaking, this is great news for STR owners and operators. One City Councilmember rationalized the decision in part by explaining that “Anaheim is supposed to be the city of kindness, not the city of bans.”
