Hero’s Welcome for Baltimore Ravens Quarterback Joe Flacco, MVP of Super Bowl XLVII, at Walt Disney World Resort
Fresh from his team’s 34-31 victory over the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII, Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco made good on his “I’m Going to Disney World” proclamation by quarterbacking a gala celebration Monday at Walt Disney World Resort.
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.
His “I’m Going to Disney World” – anchoring one of TV’s most enduring and iconic Super Bowl commercials – was captured seconds after the final whistle Sunday night. A produced commercial from that moment aired on networks just hours before Flacco’s appearance at the Magic Kingdom.

Baltimore Ravens Quarterback Joe Flacco “Going to Disney World” to Celebrate Super Bowl XLVII Victory
In this city rich in traditions, Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco on Sunday shouted five words ingrained in the traditions of American pop culture following the Ravens’ 34-31 victory over the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII.
“I’m Going to Disney World!” beamed Flacco into the cameras as confetti rained down from the rafters of the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
Flacco’s pronouncement, part of the production for one of TV’s most enduring and iconic Super Bowl commercials, was captured within seconds of the final whistle. His team’s victory kept the Ravens unbeaten in Super Bowl play at 2-0. Flacco was named the game’s Most Valuable Player.
Completing a Cinderella season in which he had career highs in passing and completions, Flacco was a standout in Super Bowl XLVII, amassing 287 yards passing, including three first-half touchdowns.
On Monday, Flacco is scheduled to participate in a parade at the place where families create lasting vacation memories – Walt Disney World Resort near Orlando, Fla. For Flacco and Ravens fans, celebrating the team’s victory at Magic Kingdom is the perfect way to spend some “Disney Time,” when family, friends and favorite characters can help create even more magical memories for Flacco and fans who share in the limited-time “I’m Going to Disney World” moment that has a worldwide following.
Flacco’s declaration becomes the 26th Super Bowl commercial in the Disney series that began in 1987 following Super Bowl XXI. The first “I’m Going to Disney World” commercial featuring New York Giants quarterback Phil Simms was considered a groundbreaking concept – a produced commercial involving a current event, airing on major networks within hours of its conclusion. Flacco joins an all-star lineup of heroes from sports and beyond who have celebrated milestone accomplishments in “I’m Going to Disney World” commercials.
This summer, Disney is hoping to relaunch ‘The Lone Ranger‘, the ever popular western hero, as a new action-adventure franchise for the company. Starring Johnny Depp as Tonto, the Ranger’s faithful sidekick, and Armie Hammer as the titular Ranger, the film is set to be released July 3, 2013. The film’s marketing campaign is starting to kick into full gear now, trying to get everyone anticipated for this summer’s blockbuster. To help wet your appetite for this Sunday’s Super Bowl, Disney has released a teaser of the spot that will run during the game, as well as a new poster for the film.
