Magic Kingdom Park was bathed in blue and bright green during a gala parade today to celebrate Super Bowl XLVIII MVP Malcolm Smith’s clutch game against the Denver Broncos last night.
Less than 24 hours before today’s parade, Smith stepped onto the field at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., with his Seattle Seahawks teammates to vie for the NFL championship. Immediately after the game, as confetti cascaded on the field, TV cameras captured Smith’s celebratory answer to the famous question: “You’ve just won the Super Bowl. What are you going to do next?”
The answer to that question? “I’m Going to Disney World!” and “I’m Going to Disneyland!” (depending on the region the commercial airs).
Smith, a Seahawks linebacker, is the first NFL defensive player to star in the iconic Disney Parks commercial.
Monday’s parade featured a cavalcade of characters and colorful balloons. Smith rode with Mickey Mouse in a shiny convertible as thousands of fans along Main Street, U.S.A. chanted his name. As the convertible paused in front of Cinderella Castle, Smith once again was showered with confetti, ending his magical day in similar fashion to his Super Bowl victory only 16 hours earlier.
I too, would love to see the interview at Walt Disney World. This will definitely reach a broader range of future guests.
I love my Hawks and I <3 Malcolm! I can't think of a better place place for him to celebrate than WDW!!!!
Will his interview at Disney World be up online somewhere? I’d love to see it.
