New York Yankees pitchers C.C. Sabathia (left) and Joba Chamberlain (right) experience the “Toy Story Midway Mania!” 3-D attraction March 1, 2009 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The two hurlers were at Walt Disney World Resort for “ESPN The Weekend,” a special event in the theme park. The Yankees conduct Spring Training in nearby Tampa, Fla. and play at Disney’s Wide World of Sports complex against the Atlanta Braves twice during Spring Training 2009.
As an aside, I wish Disney would stop incorrectly referring to the attraction as “Toy Story Mania!” Sure, it’s shorter but it makes the attraction sound like a horror flick where toys go on the attack. The ‘midway’ is actually important in building the story and guest expectations. Okay. I’m done.
