The 2011 Rose Bowl Teams are Hosted at Disneyland Resort

It’s a longstanding tradition at the Disneyland Resort to host the Rose Bowl teams before the big game. The Disneyland Resort has been associated with the Tournament of Roses since 1959 and has had the honor of playing host to many teams during that time.

Earlier today, the Wisconsin Badgers and the TCU Horned Frogs visited the Happiest Place on Earth in advance of the 2011 Rose Bowl game. The teams met in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle and were honored in a brief ceremony. Wisconsin Coach Bret Bielema and TCU Coach Gary Patterson were awarded crystal replicas of Sleeping Beauty Castle in recognition of their achievement. Following the ceremony, players from both teams enjoyed attractions at the Parks, including the Matterhorn Bobsleds and the Mad Tea Party.

Here’s a look at the players enjoying the attraction:

  • To Stephanie…that would be cute to see.

  • Lol Tolzien! Go Badgers! Make some magic in Pasadena!

  • My husband is a big macho guy, but he doesn’t really like roller coaster or rides that go too fast! Wouldn’t it be funny to see which “big, tough, football players” were not so found of these rides! I think it would be cute!

  • I love it. Big strong football players proving that you are never too old, too tough or too old to have fun at Disneyland.

  • So adorable, the Matterhorn picture with Andy Dalton in front. ;D Go Frogs! Hope I’ll see some fellow Disney fans in the Horned Frog cheering section at the Rose Bowl on Saturday!!!
