The Magic Kingdom had the sweet smell of victory yesterday as Super Bowl XLV World Champ, Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers celebrated as thousands of cheese-heads fans lined Main Street, U.S.A.. Afterward he cut a ceremonial slice of cheese and then talked with press. Here is some video and a few more photos for those of you who just can’t get enough of the Packer’s victory tour.
Just hours after his title win against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Rodgers was riding high atop a convertible smiling and waving to green and gold clad guests at the Walt Disney World Resort.
Flashing lights, a whirlwind of fluttering confetti, balloons and Mickey Mouse himself, accompanied the Super Bowl hero down the famous street at the Magic Kingdom.

In the frenzied moments following his claim of the National Football League championship Sunday night in Dallas, Rodgers stood in front of a TV camera and shouted five words that have become an almost iconic reaction to milestone achievement: “I’m going to Disney World!”
The commercial aired Monday morning and is the 44th of a series that began in 1987 following Super Bowl XXI featuring Phil Simms. The campaign pays tribute to personal achievements of athletes and continues to be an iconic celebration as only Disney can do.
Later Rodgers met Mickey Mouse at the ceremonial cheese block, shaped into the Green Bay Packers logo.
He certainly has a nice smile. Thanks to @missajean83 for the pictures and Disney for the video.
