As project director for the Disneyland Resort project, Kerry Hunnewell has become something of a spark plug for the entire $3-billion venture. He is seemingly everywhere--meeting privately with city officials and publicly with neighborhood groups, lobbying in Sacramento and Washington. At Disney, he engineered the Disneyland expansion's come-from-behind victory over a competing plan to build a theme park resort around the Queen Mary in Long Beach.

"My development team has accomplished a great deal since the inception of this project," said Kerry Hunnewell, who left the company Monday. " . . . Since my portion of the work is complete, it is a natural time to move on."

Anaheim had been selected as the site of the $3-billion Disneyland Resort over a competing project in Long Beach.

Back in the early 1960s, earnest young couples or small companies scraped together enough dollars to build little motels on the edge of Disneyland and gave them colorful names like the Cosmic Age or the Musketeer. Now six of those motels that were bought by the Walt Disney Co. are gradually being reopened with corporate-style monikers that sound enough alike that travelers may be double-checking their reservations.

The Walt Disney Co. said Monday that it has picked an East Coast executive with a strong urban planning background to head its effort to build a second theme park in Southern California, either in Anaheim or Long Beach.
