Disney huddles over fest plan

Walt Disney Co. is preparing a proposal for a big arts and entertainment festival, built around a college national championship football game.

The plan envisions the first such event shortly before the Super Bowl in January 1995 or 1996.

Disney has quietly invited about 60 people to a meeting today at the Disneyland Hotel to discuss the idea, said Gail Pederson, an exec for the Orange County Sports Assn.

Disney hasn’t discussed its concept with the National Collegiate Athletic Assn., said NCAA spokesman Jim Marshiony.
