Captains Miso Brecko (1. FC Köln) and Simon Rolfes (Bayer Leverkusen) were the Bundesliga guests of honor at a photo opportunity with Mickey Mouse himself. Paulo Guerrero (Corinthians) and Dario Conca (Fluminense) were representatives of the two Brazilian sides.
After making nice for the cameras, the four players were driven through downtown Disney in Chevy Camaros for a special parade to further celebrate the inaugural edition of what representatives are hoping will grow into an annual international club football event.
