"Disney Capitol of the World."

The Disney Corporation Headquarters and Disney Studios are both located in Burbank, CA.  It is also true that Disney World in Orlando, FL; draws more visitors a year today than Disneyland; but, in 1955, Walt Disney's biggest dream became reality in Anaheim, CA, where Walt Disney himself made his Magical Kingdom come to life for the very first time.  Today, the City of Anaheim is not only the Disney Capitol of the World, but one of the wealthiest cities in the United States, and one of the Top Five Convention Cities in America as well. Along with Disneyland, Anaheim also hosts, Disney's California Adventure, Downtown Disney Shopping District, and Disney Ice in Downtown Anaheim. When Disney bought an NHL Expansion Team in 1993,  he didn't bring it to Burbank or Orlando. They are now The Anaheim Ducks (Stanley Cup Champions in 2007).

Orange County, CA:

Orange County is set apart from The Southland as  a Metropolitan Area (Division)  with two Urban Centers/Major Cities:
 
1) ANAHEIM, CA.
-Urban & Economic Heart of Orange County.
-International Tourist & Convention City.
-Anaheim Angels and Mighty Ducks.
 
2) SANTA ANA, CA.
-County Seat of Orange County.
-OC's Most Populous City.
 
 
 
 
 Santa Ana is the 9th largest city in California, and 51st in the United States. Though it is the County Seat, and has a larger population than Anaheim does, it has no real economic impact on the surrounding communities.
 
 Anaheim, on the other hand has total economic impact the Orange County Metro Area, and surpasses both the Cities of Santa Ana and Long Beach in wealth, power, and international tourism. Orange County is far more centered economically on The City of Anaheim than it is on the City of Los Angeles, and that, sports fans, is what sets Orange County apart from The Greater Los Angeles Area. Anaheim ranks as number 10 in California, and number 56 in the United States.
 
 
 
The Disneyland Resort is not only the economic heart of Anaheim, but all of Metropolitan Orange County. If it were still up to Downtown Los Angeles as an economic monolith, and if the Disneyland Resort had never been built, most of Anaheim and Orange County would still be a big rural community in the middle of an orange grove today. But it isn't a rural community becuase of the major economic monolith we know as The Anaheim/Disneyland Resort.
 
A Metropolitan Division  is a Metro Area in itself, but not an independent one as it is part of a "Consolidated Metropolitan Statistical Area." The Consolidated MSA here is referred to as "The Southland (Formal Listing: Los Angeles-Long Beach-Santa Ana)." This Consolidated MSA, plus The Inland Empire,  is what Arte Moreno was aiming at with his name change, not the City of Los Angeles. "The Southland" is a Consolidation of two Metropolitan Divisions.
 
1) Los Angeles-Long Beach-Glendale (Nickname--Greater Los Angeles).
 
2) Santa Ana-Anaheim-Irvine (Nickname--"Orange County").
