Disney Cancels ESPN: The Weekend

Disney recently announced the cancellation of the annual ESPN: The Weekend event.

The yearly event began in 2004 to help celebrate the 25th anniversary of ESPN. Since then, Disney's partnership with ESPN has grown to include opportunities for many athletes through the Wide World of Sports Complex.

Though the event is cancelled, ESPN and Disney will continue to partner together and move forward. Events such the ESPN RISE Games and ESPN RISE Girls Showcase will be a focus. The duo will also continue to encourage and provide ways for fans to become involved in sports' events.

Please note that the cancellation also is in effect for the previously announced 2012 dates.
