    Walt Disney World Resort has announced plans to expand the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex.

    Officials at Walt Disney World said additional playing fields are planned, as well as more lights, digital video boards and audio systems. They said the enhancements will provide athletes with a one-of-a-kind ESPN-style sports experience.

    The expansion plans involve adding 25 acres to the 270-acre complex.

    The project should be completed by early 2012. The new playing fields will be able to be used for football, soccer, lacrosse and field hockey.

    Not the one I thought they were going to build Wendy. I was understanding that they were actually going to build a huge bowling stadium type complex similar to what they have in Reno so that the could host the Nationals and other major bowling tournaments.
