Rose Bowl Teams Visit Disneyland

For many people, January 1 means a new beginning, resolutions, and spending time with family and friends. It also means football, particularly the Rose Bowl. Donna Fisk has shared details of the recent visit of the Ohio State University Buckeyes and the Utah Utes to Disneyland with Disney Parks Blog:

Yesterday, The Ohio State University Buckeyes and the Utah Utes made their first stop on the way to the 2022 Rose Bowl Game presented by Capital One Venture X in Pasadena, Calif., with a traditional visit to the Disneyland Resort!

About Paula K

I grew up in Western Massachusetts. When I was nine my family went to Disneyland and I was hooked. I grew up, attended New England College in Henniker, NH and eventually moved to Virginia. I worked as a disc jockey, married and became a full time mom when our daughter was born. Fast forward several years. In 2010 we moved to Central Florida and my Disney obsession grew. I now work as a freelance writer and spend my spare time in the parks. Under the name Paula Brown I penned the novels Dream Wanderers and The Coffee Cruiser. I also am a co-author of Dining at Walt Disney World: The Definitive Guide. I'm obsessed with Star Wars, so this is a good time to live in Central Florida. I've been a vegetarian for well over a decade, a choice that my daughter eventually made as well. While my husband still hasn't joined us fully he has given up most meats except for seafood. I was relieved to find that vegetarian dining is not difficult at Walt Disney World.
