Possible Disney violation

Font names may be trademarked, and using a particular font in a certain way may infringe on the Disney logo (like spelling, say, Disney with that font), but the letters themselves, I would guess aren't protected by trademark. In this case, I don't know at all- could people be confused enough to believe that it's related to Disney? If Disney's lawyers think so, they could certainly sue. That's just my brief look at it, though.
Lots of good font-related legal resources here:
