Olympic Dreams Begin at Disney Parks

Disneyland 2012 Olympic CavalcadeIn the past couple weeks, both the Walt Disney World® Resort in Florida and the Disneyland® Resort in California have hosted events for USA Olympic athletes hoping to make their dreams come true at the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

A send-off party for Brittany Viola, a U.S. Olympic Diving Team member, was held inside Planet Hollywood® at the Downtown Disney® Area of the Walt Disney World® Resort. Viola will perform in the women’s 10-meter platform this August. During Trials, she qualified with almost 60 more points than the second place qualifier!

This past Tuesday, the Anaheim-based men’s and women’s USA Volleyball teams were the stars of a special cavalcade on Main Street, U.S.A® at Disneyland® Park. With Mickey and his pals by their side, the teams walked to the beats of the Disneyland® Resort All-American College Band while being showered with red, white and blue confetti. The U.S. Women’s and Men’s National Volleyball Teams are ranked #1 and #5 in the world respectively.

These patriotic tributes were a great way for Disney Parks to recognize the dreams of all U.S. athletes who are on their way to represent our country in the Olympic Games.
