But the city of Anaheim, which spent $546 million on improvements, finds itself several years behind schedule in creating its vision of a world-class urban resort that would stretch beyond Walt Disney Co.'s properties.

The company planning the Gotcha Glacier indoor sports park is seeking another extension in its deadline to secure financing for the $130-million structure to be built on the parking lot of Edison International Field. Glacier of Anaheim LLC, which was scheduled to obtain financing by Friday, the end of its second 30-day extension, wants a two-month delay. Company executives say this will be the last one. City officials downplayed the request, which the City Council is likely to approve tonight.

Yet another popular-culture venue may make its home downtown. The Planning Commission unanimously approved preliminary plans Monday for a 5,000-seat theater proposed by SFX Music Group, the company that owns Verizon Wireless Amphitheater, formerly Irvine Meadows. "We're very excited and hope you open fast," Chairwoman Phyllis Boydstun said. The new theater would fill a niche, said Alan DeZon, SFX vice president of operations in Southern California.
