Walt Disney World is one of the best places in the world to commemorate celebrations.  Another special celebration is planned for Sunday, January 7th, 2018.  This one will take place at the Magic Kingdom for a special parade.  The occasion is to celebrate the University of Central Florida Knights football team.  The team is a hometown Orlando college team that managed to finish out the season with a perfect game record and the championship.  They will be honored for the accomplishments in a special parade down Main Street, USA at 4:30 PM.  All guests at the park that day will be invited to attend and see the players in their special celebration moment. The parade will include the football team, cheerleaders and marching band all in attendance.


The University of Central Florida players aren’t just great at football, they are also great students.  The athletes at the school are also known for the highest graduation rates in the Football Bowl Division.  The school has maintained this record for four consecutive years, too.  The team won all 13 of their games with a score of 34 – 27 against the Auburn Tigers during the Peach Bowl.

How many UCF Knights fans plan to attend the special celebratory parade at the Magic Kingdom tomorrow?

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
