Starting off the morning with breakfast at the Canyon Grille at DeBell, the athletes got to enjoy some practice on the putting green before having to load the buses for their daily workout at the Y.M.C.A.

The delegation headed to Disney Studios where they received a tour and found out that Disneyland was created by Walt Disney whose offices were right there on the lot in Burbank. After tours and pictures it was time to load the buses, head home and get ready for a concert at the Starlight Bowl.
