Anaheim has ended tax breaks for Disneyland Resort after the City Council voted Tuesday to cancel $267 million in tax incentives at Disney's request.

The tax breaks were in exchange for expanding the two parks and building a new luxury hotel.

Disney said the deal created what it called an adversarial climate with the city.

In November, voters will decide on a measure to require large hospitality businesses that accept tax breaks to pay all workers at least $15 an hour.
Disney is the parent company of ABC7.
