Disney Channel Games 2007
The second annual Disney Channel Games ended in August 2007. Hosted at Disney's Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, stars from international Disney Channels joined the teams, making room for the new Yellow Team. In addition, each team played for a charity (including Boys & Girls Club, UNICEF, Make-a-Wish Foundation and Starlight Starbright Children's Foundation). Disney promoted these games as environmentally friendly.
Contestants from the first games who did not return for the second include Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, Kay Panabaker, and Anneliese van der Pol. Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron were not available for the event. Several new additions from new Disney Channel Original Series, Disney Channel Original Movies, and across the globe joined the teams, including Maiara Walsh and Jason Dolley of Cory in the House. Each team member did not receive a nickname, although Brenda Song remained a captain and Dylan Sprouse, Kyle Massey, and Corbin Bleu took over for the other teams. Phill Lewis and Brian Stepanek returned as hosts while Cory in the House's Madison Pettis served as a guest judge on one occasion. Several voice actors of animated characters are also seen in the audience of the games. They include Todd and Riley from The Replacements, Jake Long and Fu Dog from American Dragon: Jake Long, Dr. Drakken and Kim Possible from Kim Possible, and Kuzco from The Emperor's New School, among several others.
The winning team was the Green Team and a donation of $25,000 was made to The Boys and Girls Club Of America. The other three teams were also awarded with $25,000, resulting in all teams donating equal amounts of money to their charity.
Famous quotes containing the words channel and/or games:
“There may sometimes be ungenerous attempts to keep a young man down; and they will succeed too, if he allows his mind to be diverted from its true channel to brood over the attempted injury. Cast about, and see if this feeling has not injured every person you have ever known to fall into it.”
—Abraham Lincoln (18091865)
“At the age of twelve I was finding the world too small: it appeared to me like a dull, trim back garden, in which only trivial games could be played.”
—Elizabeth Bowen (18991973)
