Prior to their January 1 face-off, 2013 Rose Bowl rivals Wisconsin Badgers and Stanford Cardinal took a break to celebrate their achievement here at Disneyland park. A tradition since 1959, Disneyland has welcomed the Rose Bowl teams each year for a special ceremony in the park.
The teams were welcomed by Mickey Mouse, Disneyland park Vice President Jon Storbeck and the Disneyland Band. Coach Barry Alvarez and players from the Wisconsin Badgers joined Coach David Shaw and players from the Stanford Cardinal in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle for the ceremony.
… and took a ride on the newly reopened Matterhorn Bobsleds.
Please join me in wishing both teams good luck in the 99th Rose Bowl game on January 1, 2013!
