The Disneyification of Brooklyn

If Brook Lopez is the Nets center next October, he'll feel right at home. Same is true of Dwight Howard. The Nets have combined with DIsney to bring the feel of Disneyland and DisneyWorld to the Barclays Center. Lopez, of course, has a lifetime pass to the theme parks and Howard has worked with Disney while in Orlando.

The "feel" the Nets are looking for is about the customer experience. All 1,500 arena employees will be trained by Disney. "We want to create a magical experience where everyone is treated like a VIP no matter where they sit, and no one does it better than Disney," Brett Yormark told The Post.
