Today In Disney History ~ February 25th


Disney’s Wide World of Sports Complex opened in 1997. In 2010 it was rebranded and renamed the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex on February 26–28, 2010. As a part of the rebranding the “ESPN the Weekend” event was held at Hollywood Studios. Sponsored by Dick’s Sporting Goods the event allowed guests to explore the new ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex and see how shows like Baseball Tonight, NFL Live, and ESPN First Take were taped. There were also celebrity meet and greets, a parade, and game shows. Special guests included Curt Schilling, Kyle Orton, Frank Thomas, Misty May Treanor, Scottie Pippen, and Shawn Johnson.

Michele is a life long Disney fan, and has two sons who have followed suit, each going on their first Disney trip before their first birthday’s. Part of the goal Michele has for The Main Street Mouse is not only to keep members informed, but to create somewhat of a Disney Family by relating to others through personal experiences and opinions. Also, Michele is making it a priority to share stories of inspiration and hope to other Disney Fans in an effort to share the Magic and hopefully make a difference in the lives of others. ~ I enjoy writing personal perspective blogs, doing TMSM Meet Ups for our readers, and keeping the constant interaction going with others, sharing the Disney Magic to people when they can’t be at their Happy Place.
