Disney World Super Bowl tradition lives on, with pandemic modification – Deadline

It’s a tradition for the Super Bowl MVP to be asked what his next move will be. They always say, “I’m going to Disney World.”

Not this year.

The question will always be asked. But the Orlando, Florida theme park is not holding its traditional post-game parade this year in which the winning player appears on a float. It’s the pandemic, you know.

The trading tradition began in 1987 with New York Giants quarterback Phil Simms reportedly paid $ 75,000 to answer the question.

Ads usually show the song When you wish for a star on action shots and crowd reactions. The highlight is the off-camera announcer asking the player, “What are you going to do next?”

The player responds “I’m going to Disney World!”

Disney World has not held parades since it reopened last summer. Disneyland in Anaheim, California remains closed.
