LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla., Nov. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- America's love affair with its newest baseball heroes made its way to Main Street U.S.A. at Magic Kingdom Park on Saturday afternoon when baseball's world champions did what so many sports champions do: They "go to Disney World!''
Championship MVP Ben Zobrist, Addison Russell and Javier Baez, who all helped lead the Chicago Cubs to the world championship earlier this week, rode along with Mickey Mouse in a celebratory parade at Walt Disney World Resort. A throng of cheering fans, many dressed in the team's colors, lined the parade route at Magic Kingdom waving "W'' flags and holding signs. Mickey Mouse and Goofy both dressed for the occasion, wearing their classic baseball uniforms! The players and their families enjoyed some of the theme park's signature attractions, including Dumbo the Flying Elephant. Plus, they spent time hanging out with Mickey Mouse and Goofy and took photos to capture the memory. "I can't believe how many (Cubs fans) there were at the parade. It's just unbelievable,'' said Zobrist. "It's an amazing following of people right here at Disney World.''
