Disney and Microsoft teaming up on Kinect?

Rumors are heating up that Microsoft will be announcing a new partnership with the Walt Disney theme parks, specifically to create Kinect-driven video games. Here's more.Tweet
Update from Robert: Confirmed. Microsoft Studios' Phil Spencer announced at today's Microsoft E3 press conference that the company will debut "Kinect Disneyland Adventures," a digital replica of the entire theme park, where each attraction would be a mini-game. He said that some of the rides will be experienced in the game in ways that they cannot in real life - actually flying on Peter Pan's Flight, for example. The game will be available "this holiday" - which I presume to be Nov./Dec.
From the comments, here's a YouTube look, from a gamer blog at the press conference:
