Add the Disney family to the growing list of bidders who would like to take over the Dodgers from outgoing owner Frank McCourt.An anonymous source familiar with the bid told the Los Angeles Times that the family of the late Roy Disney was partnering with Stanley Gold, the man who runs the family's investment firm, to put in a bid for the team. This source told the Times that the Roy Disney family would take over the Dodgers as a private investment, restoring local ownership to the team.

The source added that the family would guard the Dodger name the way they guard the Disney name.
