Someone will be going to Disney World after the Super Bowl on Sunday, and he’ll be making good on that promise quickly. A member of the championship team will be honored with a parade at the Magic Kingdom on Monday.
Of course, we can’t know the player’s identity until after the game pitting the New England Patriots and New York Giants in Indianapolis.
The parade will travel down the theme park’s Main Street just before 1:30 p.m. on Monday. It will be included in regular park admission.
The chosen player — not necessarily the official MVP of the big game — also will be featured in the famed “I’m going to Disney World” television commercial, part of an ad campaign that began in the 1980s.
Lately, the “going” trend has leaned toward NFL quarterbacks and “American Idol” winners. Last year, the phrase was uttered by Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers after his Super Bowl victory and by Scotty McCreery, who won season 10 of Fox’s “American Idol.”
