ANAHEIM, Calif., Feb. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Disneyland's world-famous characters, Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, will participate in San Bernardino's Black History Parade on Saturday, Feb. 6. Beginning at 10 a.m., the Disney characters will delight spectators along the parade route on Baseline and Mt. Vernon Avenues in downtown San Bernardino. Joining Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse in the parade will be Taylor Walton and Bettye Watkins. Disneyland is saluting these two youngsters' accomplishments and remarkable oratory skills displayed recently at the West Coast Black Publishers Convention in Oakland, Calif., last fall. Walton and Watkins are both students from the Oakland area and will be flying in from San Francisco on Delta Air Lines (the official airline of Disneyland Walt Disney World) to spend an exciting weekend exploring the Magic Kingdom and riding alongside Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse during Saturday's parade. Together with their families, they will have a chance to enjoy a stay at the 60-acre Disneyland Hotel, which features direct access to the Magic Kingdom via the Disneyland Hotel. Walton, who attends Chabot School, and Watkins a junior high student at Montera Junior High, are being honored by Disneyland and the San Bernardino Black History Parade. -0- 2/4/93 /CONTACT: Ana Laura Rosandich of Disneyland, 714-999-4445/
