Baseball Heroes Celebrate Historic Championship With Magical Parade on Saturday at Walt Disney World Resort

The baseball championship frenzy that is gripping the nation is now about to sweep across Walt Disney World Resort in a big way.

MVP Ben Zobrist, Addison Russell and Javier Baez from the world champion Chicago Cubs are coming to the Resort on Saturday afternoon to take their world title celebration to another level. They are being honored by Walt Disney World Resort with a parade down Main Street U.S.A. at Magic Kingdom Park to salute their iconic title run.

Join us as we live stream the event right here on the Disney Parks Blog. Our Inside #DisneyParksLIVE stream begins at 4:40 p.m. EST on Saturday, November 5 and can be seen at the top of this site as well as on Facebook. You can also follow along on Twitter with the hashtag #DisneyParksLIVE.

The Chicago Cubs’ victory over the Cleveland Indians in a dramatic Game 7 nail-biter that went 10 innings ended a 108-year baseball title quest – the longest championship drought in sports history!

The players will be joined in the magical parade by Mickey Mouse and throngs of cheering fans. Afterwards, the players are expected to enjoy some special time in the parks with their families and friends, creating even more memories that will last them a lifetime.

This parade continues a tradition at Disney Parks of honoring extraordinary sports champions from professional football, basketball, hockey, baseball and beyond. For those who remember, we honored players from the Boston Red Sox’s championship team with a parade at Walt Disney World Resort in 2004.

If you missed that parade, don’t miss this one Saturday afternoon. Make it your championship moment!


  • We LOVE our Chicago Cubs and will be with them in spirit. No better place to celebrate!

  • Had to watch the parade from ESPN Wide World of Sports. Now get to see them at the Magic Kingdom. WOW!!!!

  • This announcement says what time the stream begins but what time does the parade actually start please?

  • I would love to go to this parade but it’s not possible to get to Florida today in time for it. Is there any chance that they will do this again with different Cubs players, and if so, will it be announced in time to be able to make arrangements to be there?

  • From Chicago and am a die hard Cubs fan. Was at our parade yesterday. Thank you for broadcasting this parade today!

  • We LOVE our Chicago Cubs too!!

    However, as a first time visitor to Disneyland and the Disneyland California Grand we stayed November 4, 2016. Usually Florida visitors we enjoyed the original park so very much!!

    However, we missed our beloved Cubs. They were with us in spirit!! Go Cubs. It’s still a “pinch me I’m dreaming!” moment!! Thank you both Disney and the Cubs! Years and Years of enjoyment!!
