If you’ve ever visited the happiest place on earth, you’re probably aware that some of the people who walk through it’s gates didn’t win best dressed in high school, and if they did, it was circa 1980 and their wardrobe hasn’t changed since. We’re speaking, of course, of the fashionably challenged.
PeopleOfThePark.com is a community blog dedicated to those interesting individuals we encounter in the park. We share images, stories, videos, etc., of guests that make us laugh and brighten our day, in their own unique way.

Three of the biggest names in sports and entertainment will come together this week when the Harlem Globetrotters join forces with ESPN and Disney Sports as part of the official re-launch of ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World Resort near Orlando, Fla.
“We’re thrilled to bring the Globetrotters’ magic to this landmark event”
As part of the gala “re-opening” night festivities, the Globetrotters will take on the Washington Generals at the complex, with an all-star Globetrotter roster, including Special K Daley, Scooter Christensen, Big Easy Lofton and Flight Time Lang being joined by a bevy of sports celebrities, ESPN personalities and Disney characters. The game will be taped before a live audience on Thursday and televised nationally on Friday, February 26, at 7:00 p.m. ET on ESPN2.
The special performance will include ESPN Radio’s Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic from Mike & Mike in the Morning, who are celebrating their 10th anniversary on the air, serving as honorary coaches. In addition, ESPN’s Emerging Technology Group will use the game as a first test run for the network’s much-anticipated ESPN 3D network, scheduled to launch later this year in conjunction with the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
In addition to the opening night event, the Globetrotters will also once again take part in several events throughout the popular annual “ESPN The Weekend” (Feb. 25-28) at Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park and the newly re-imagined sports complex.
“We’re thrilled to bring the Globetrotters’ magic to this landmark event,” said Harlem Globetrotters CEO Kurt Schneider. “The Globetrotters are proud to be global ambassadors of both sports and family entertainment, and partnering with the undisputed worldwide leaders—Disney Sports and ESPN—in both those categories is a tremendous honor that we take great pride in.”
ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, which hosts more than 300 events a year, is the leading multi-sport venue for amateur and professional sports in the United States, accommodating 60 different sports and athletes from more than 70 countries.
Sponsored by Campbell Soup Company, Spalding, Howard Johnson and America’s Best Contacts and Eyeglasses, the Original Harlem Globetrotters are in their 84th consecutive season of touring the world. The Globetrotters are one of only six teams to be inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
While we were at Disneyworld we always participate in the reuse your towels program there. Actually due to our little ones nap time we didn’t really use the room attendants services that often.
Disney is particpating in Clean the World campaign according to this news report which is great how a company of that size can make changes to help people and the enviroment.
Here is the article:
Walt Disney World Resort hotels are working with Clean the World to recycle all the partially used amenities from their nearly 28,000 Central Florida hotel rooms. Clean the World sanitizes the soap and shampoo that would be discarded and distributes these amenities to people in need around the world.
“With the support of Walt Disney World, even more supplies will reach those in desperate need,” said Paul Till, co-founder and managing director of Clean the World, who is responsible for recruiting new hotels to join the “Clean the World Hospitality Recycling Program.” Through this program, hotels financially contribute a tax-deductible recycling fee in exchange for collection, recycling and free redistribution of partially-used amenities to those suffering due to a lack of available hygiene products. In 2009, Clean the World distributed more than 230 tons of hygiene products to countries worldwide including Haiti, Mexico, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Uganda, Mali, Zimbabwe, Swaziland, Mongolia and Romania.
By participating in this program, Walt Disney World Resort hotels are showing a commitment to saving lives and protecting the environment.
Clean the World in Haiti
In the wake of the devastating earthquake in Haiti, Clean the World has stepped up its commitment to provide basic necessities to the impoverished people of the island nation, and has included medical supplies, food, water and other essentials as well. Since January 2010, Clean the World has delivered over 150 tons of supplies directly to Haiti.
In 2009, Clean the World delivered 200,000 bars of soap to schools, orphanages, clinics and churches in Cap Haitien, Haiti. Though its Haitian partnerships and distribution network, Clean the World is providing free soap to people in desperate need for proper hygiene. In Haiti alone, 8,000 children die annually from diarrheal disease, which is preventable by up to 62% with proper hand washing.
