Players and coaches from the University of Utah and Penn State visited the Disneyland Resort on Wednesday before heading off to Pasadena to face off in the Rose Bowl Game on Jan. 2.

It’s a tradition for the competing football teams to visit the “Happiest Place on Earth” before the big game, according to a news release.

Players and coaches from the teams, as well as 2023 Rose Queen Bella Adler, members of the royal court, and the Pasadena City College Tournament of Roses Honor Band participated in a cavalcade down Main Street U.S.A and other festive events across the resort.
