Super Bowl Champions, of course, go to Walt Disney World after the big game as an ongoing tradition after yelling the words “I’m going to Disney World!”
However, this year with the ongoing pandemic Disney confirmed that even though the Super Bowl MVP would still shout these words, there would not be a parade at Walt Disney World this year.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were the winners of last night’s big game and Disney World lit up Cinderella Castle with their team colors in their honor! The Walt Disney World Resort is only approximately an hour away from Tampa so the team and their families have more than likely enjoyed Disney World before, but this time it surely has more meaning.
Today, we have an adorable video of Tampa Bay Tight End, Rob Gronkowski, getting to spend some time with the First Order at the Rise of the Resistance attraction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios! Gronk’s lightsaber is red which matches the Buccaneers team colors, but does that also make him a sith? (Just kidding!)

WESH 2 News reported that Gronkowski will be visiting the theme parks to experience some of the “most popular attractions”, according to Disney. It is great to see Gronk enjoying the Most Magical Place on Earth after the big victory yesterday and we hope we get to see more photos and videos of Gronk enjoying his day at Walt Disney World!
WESH 2 News also reported that Tom Brady, the Super Bowl MVP, will visit Disney World at a later date:
Tom Brady was named the MVP of the Super Bowl. Disney said plans are underway for Brady to visit Magic Kingdom later this year.
Social Media Producer @PatC_Alexander shared a look at the preparations that were being made at Magic Kingdom in anticipation of Gronkowski.

Here is another picture from @traveldisneywithstacy on Instagram of both Micheal Jordan and Gronkowski at Magic Kingdom today. It appears that Micheal Jordan wanted to get in on the fun at Disney too:

Disney Parks Blog took to Twitter to share a video of both Tom Brady and Gronkowski saying the famous, “I’m going to Disney World” line after winning the Super Bowl.

Disney Parks Blog also provided the following update about Rob Gronkowski’s visit:
The gregarious tight end had his own adventure in a galaxy far, far away in Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. He also braved “the wildest ride in the wilderness,” Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, at Magic Kingdom Park.
