University of North Carolina Tar Heels visit The Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort

Filed in: College Sports

In advance of their appearance in the 2015 Russell Athletic Bowl against the No. 17 Baylor Bears, the No. 10 North Carolina Tar Heels spent Christmas Eve at the Magic Kingdom. The Tar Heels enjoyed attractions in the park, including a flight on Dumbo the Flying Elephant.

The players were all asked:
1. What’s it like to be at Walt Disney World?
2. What’s it like to visit Magic Kingdom on Christmas Eve?
3. This UNC team won 11 straight games and 7 home games, both firsts in school history. What would a bowl win over Baylor mean for the future of the program? Do you think this is the beginning of a new era of UNC football?
