The star tandem of quarterback Tom Brady and wide receiver Julian Edelman just shouted “We’re going to Disney World!” into the cameras Sunday night moments after their New England Patriots clinched an NFL record-tying sixth Super Bowl championship in Atlanta.
Brady and Edelman will soon be on their way to Walt Disney World Resort in Florida after becoming the latest NFL stars to utter those iconic words as part of Disney’s enduring national TV campaign following their team’s Super Bowl LIII victory. With less than 10 minutes left in the game, Brady engineered a five-play, 69-yard touchdown drive highlighted by a 29-yard strike to All-Pro tight end Rob Gronkowski that set up the game’s sole touchdown by rookie running back Sony Michel; the Patriots later added a field goal to win the Super Bowl, 13-3. Brady finished the game with 262 passing yards, while Edelman hauled in 10 catches for 141 yards. Both stars propelled their team to its third Super Bowl championship in the past five years.
Once Brady and Edelman arrive at Walt Disney World Resort, they will be celebrated with a magical parade at Magic Kingdom Park on Monday, beginning at approximately 2:40 p.m. ET. Thousands of cheering Patriots fans are expected to line Main Street, U.S.A. for the festivities.
The celebration will include popular Disney characters, festive music and lots of confetti, as well as Brady and Edelman having fun experiencing some signature attractions.
So, if you happen to be at Walt Disney World Resort on Monday afternoon, please join us at Magic Kingdom for all of the pageantry and excitement as we celebrate the Patriots and their remarkable Super Bowl accomplishment.
Come back to the Disney Parks Blog before the parade Monday to view our live stream of the festivities and be sure to check here later that day for photos and video of the parade.
