First the 12th Man started to arrive:
Then they started cheering:
Finally, the man of the hour arrived:
It was a short, but memorable parade. He also stuck around for a brief interview.
And then, like the international man of mystery that he is, NFL Superbowl XLVIII MVP Malcolm Smith, returned to the jet setter life of parties and TV interviews that is his destiny… at least until practice starts for next season with the Seattle Seahawks.

Did you watch the game? It turned into a real nailbiter. But in the end one of the Haubaugh brother’s teams was destined to win. This time it was the Baltimore Ravens Fresh with a 34-31 victory over the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII. Super Boel MVP quarterback Joe Flacco made good on his “I’m Going to Disney World” proclamation by quarterbacking a gala celebration Monday at Walt Disney World.
Smiling and waving from a red convertible alongside Mickey Mouse in the shadow of Cinderella Castle, Flacco – named the game’s Most Valuable Player — greeted cheering Magic Kingdom guests along a parade route lined with colorful red, white and blue balloons. Cheerleaders, Disney characters in football gear and a Florida blizzard – of confetti — completed the festive scene as Flacco quarterbacked another drive, this time down Main Street, U.S.A.
Flacco was one of the game’s standout players, firing three first-half touchdown strikes en route to 287 total passing yards. It capped a remarkable post-season in which Flacco connected on 11 TD passes, throwing no interceptions.
Families with football players in their midst take note, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees will bring his first football academy, the Drew Brees Passing Academy and Tournament for high school players, to the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World Resort. Brees, who visited Walt Disney World after winning the super bowl, will help make dreams come true for aspiring players during the camp.
The prestigious four-day academy, which is open to all skill levels but is expected to attract some of the most highly-ranked high school players in America from June 27-30, will involve elite-level instruction from Brees and other marquee NFL players and coaches. The academy participants will learn insider tips related to virtually every facet of the passing game, from the proper throwing motion to throwing on the run to taking command of the huddle, from one of the NFL’s elite quarterbacks.
The academy is the latest collaboration between Brees and Disney. In 2010, Brees appeared in the famous “I’m Going to Disney World” commercial and Super Bowl parade at Walt Disney World following the Saints’ championship win over the Colts. In 2011, Brees acted as spokesman for Walt Disney World during the week of Super Bowl XLV in Dallas, Texas.

NFL World Champion New York Giant’s & two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning managed to put in an appearance as scheduled after winning Super Bowl XLVI and recording the world famous “What Are You Going To Do Next?” commercial. Why go to Walt Disney World, of course.
“I’m going to Disney World!” proclaimed Manning Sunday shortly after his team scored a dramatic 21-17 win over the New England Patriots to capture Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis. In a gala parade Monday at Magic Kingdom, Manning made good on that promise, waving and smiling alongside Mickey Mouse from a red convertible in the shadow of Cinderella Castle.
Four years ago the scene wasn’t the same as Manning left Pop Warner players to ride the parade route alone after deciding to stay at the Super Bowl scene. Even though Manning still has childish good looks, he has matured and was at the park for a full parade and an interview session.
Fans of the Giants and Manning, including those sporting team jerseys Monday, got to see their hero up-close as he rode the route. New York Giants balloons mixed in with red, white and blue balloons along the parade route, Mickey Mouse was joined by other Disney characters and confetti in the shape of the Lombardi Trophy (awarded to the NFL champion) rained down on the happy scene. Manning was later joined in the Magic Kingdom by NFL Youth football players.
