Disneyland room boom?

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Disneyland's neighborhood may be in for a hotel boom.

The Orange County Register (http://bit.ly/17Ok49l ) says developers are planning to build 14 new hotels near the Anaheim theme park, with the first opening as early as December. That would add nearly 4,000 new rooms to the region - a 19 percent increase.

Officials say the industry is recovering after the recession and developers are again able to get loans.

Tourism is important to Anaheim and neighboring Garden Grove, which already have some 20,000 hotel rooms. Hotel bed taxes make up the biggest chunks of the budgets in both cities.
