Disney plans huge bowling alley

Disney plans huge bowling alley : "One of the country's largest bowling alleys will be built at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex on the grounds of Walt Disney World Resort, executives said at a business briefing Wednesday.

The 100-lane bowling center represents a bid for Disney to capture a largely ignored and potentially gigantic piece of the sports tourism market.

'The sports tourism market is really growing and we want to grow with it,' said Ken Potrock, senior vice president of sports enterprises, Walt Disney Parks & Resorts. 'We needed to create a project where we would be able to bring in the single-largest tournaments.'"
