Super Bowl Champion Aaron Rodgers – ‘Going to Disney World!’

posted on February 6th, 2011 by Darrell Fry, Sports Media Director, Walt Disney World


Update: 1:59 p.m. – Today’s ticker-tape parade at Magic Kingdom park celebrating Super Bowl MVP Aaron Rodgers has been delayed. It’s now scheduled to begin at 3:30 p.m. ET – weather permitting.
——————-
After making memories with his heroic play in Super Bowl XLV, what is Aaron Rodgers going to do next? In the frenzied moments just after his team claimed the National Football League championship Sunday night in Dallas, Aaron stood in front of a TV camera and shouted five words that have become an almost iconic reaction to milestone achievements: “I’m going to Disney World!”

Aaron’s pronouncement, part of the production for one of TV’s most enduring and celebrated commercials, was captured after the Green Bay Packers’ 31-25 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers – a game during which Aaron threw three touchdown passes and was named MVP.

On Monday, Aaron Rodgers will celebrate the Packers’ big win with a Super Bowl Victory Parade down Main Street U.S.A. at the Magic Kingdom.

This is the 25th year of the “I’m going to Disney World” commercials. The campaign pays tribute to personal achievements of athletes and continues to be an iconic celebration as only Disney can do.

What an iconic statement – never gets old, or cliche. Such a magical moment deserves a magical place to celebrate. Congrats to Mr. Rodgers and the rest of the GB team – and thanks to Disney for making magical moments part of daily life.

The Super Bowl hero parade is at 2:15 going south from the castle on Main Street. To allow time for the “Super
bowl parade” the usual 3:00 daily character parade is delayed until 3:30 going in reverse of normal as well from Splash Mountain to Town Square. So it will not arrive at the castle until about 3:40 to 3:45 and end at Town Square about 4:00 or so.

Enjoy.

That’s weird, I saw the ad during ESPN sportscenter last night, and Aaron Rodgers said “I’m going to Disneyland” and not Disney World. I guess 2 ads were probably done. But I guess since he’s also booked to do Letterman in NYC tonight, it makes logistic sense for him to go to Orlando Florida, rather than make the cross country trip from Anaheim to get to the Late Show set.
