As has been tradition since 1987, the Super Bowl MVP is still headed to Walt Disney World. However, because we’re still in a pandemic, there’s a catch.

In addition to filming the traditional on-field commercial last night, Cinderella’s castle was also illuminated in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ colors. Alternating with a blue wash in recognition of the nation’s health care workers, working so hard to battle the pandemic.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, while these two will be enjoying a “thrilling afternoon…experiencing some of Disney’s most popular attractions,” there will not be a traditional MVP parade. Traditionally the Super Bowl MVP would have their own version of a cavalcade, kicking off the 2:30 pm Magic Kingdom parade the day after. Since there aren’t any parades at Walt Disney World right now, this isn’t a surprise. That said, Disney specifically noted that celebratory planning is underway to host Brady, likely “in the coming months”. When that happens, it will be his fourth visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth. The most of any player in history – just more reason for his fans to name him a GOAT.

How Did the Disney Super Bowl Marketing Campaign Begin?

The phrase “I’m Going to Disney World!” has become one of the most iconic marketing campaigns today. Originally conceived by Michael Eisner and his wife, over a dinner party with Dick Rutan and Jeana Yeager. For the full story, check out The Dapper Danielle’s TikTok:

Another little fun fact – this year was only the 9th time that Disney has featured two Super Bowl stars in the same commercial.
