Walt Disney Co. chairman Michael Eisner says the company will build in Tokyo an ocean-themed park first planned for Long Beach.

“California’s business climate has gone from sunny to chilly,” Eisner said in a Wednesday-night speech to the World Affairs Council at the Disneyland Hotel.

He did not provide details of the DisneySea project in Japan. Tokyo already has a Disneyland park.

Eisner focused largely on Disney’s plans for a $ 3 billion expansion in Anaheim.

Last week, the City of Anaheim released a 2,300-page draft environmental-impact report on the project. Plans call for a World’s Fair-type theme park to be built in Disneyland’s 110-acre parking lot.

Eisner said Disney’s proposal would generate almost 28,000 jobs.
