This year’s Super Bowl is being played between Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs (who won last year’s Super Bowl) at Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium, which is only about 75 miles from Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World.

With the game being so close to the Most Magical Place on Earth, as well as the current pandemic, a lot of people have been wondering if the Super Bowl MVP would carry on the tradition this year and yell the famous line after the big game this Sunday.

Well, Orlando Sentinel released a story on the history of this Super Bowl tradition and reported as if this will continue on this year, despite the pandemic.

… we could see a repeat customer at Disney World next week. Patrick Mahomes, quarterback of the Kansas City Chiefs was the honoree last year, and current Tampa Bay Buccaneers star Tom Brady came, alongside teammate Julian Edelman, in 2018, back when Brady led the New England Patriots to Super Bowl victory. (He also said “I’m going” in 2002 and 2004.) Mahomes, Brady and their respective teams face off Sunday.

However, Disney Parks Blog has now confirmed that even though the Super Bowl MVP will still shout these words, there will not be a parade at Walt Disney World this year.

With Sunday’s big game kicking off just down the road, Disney, like many others, is gearing up for the excitement of Super Bowl weekend. Although Walt Disney World won’t host the annual Super Bowl parade down Main Street U.S.A. at Magic Kingdom Park this year, Disney will continue the time-honored tradition of featuring the Super Bowl star player in the iconic “I’m Going to Disney World!” commercial on Sunday night. Be sure to stay tuned after the big game to catch the commercial on major TV networks and social media! Disney Parks hopes to be able to bring back our other Super Bowl traditions next year, including letting football and Disney fans see and cheer on their favorite player in the park.

This year’s commercial will be the latest installment in a long-running Super Bowl tradition created by Disney in 1987 when New York Giants quarterback Phil Simms first appeared in the commercial following the team’s Super Bowl victory. Since then, the commercial has featured some of the biggest names in Super Bowl history, and we’re excited to see who will be the star of this year’s commercial!

Patrick Mahomes was the Super Bowl MVP last year and visited the Most Magical Place on Earth after the big game. We could see Mahomes say these words if he is named the MVP for the second year in a row.

Another possibility is that Tom Brady, who has also won the title of Super Bowl MVP in the past, say “I’m going to Disney World” Sunday evening.
