Super Bowl: No one is going to Disney World

Posted Thursday, January 27, 2005 10:15 AM | Contributed by Jeff

Disney has announced that after 19 years, it will not be running the "I'm going to Disney World" promotion where a star player of the Super Bowl declares his trip following the game.

Well, Tom Brady's already said it twice anyway, I guess there's no need to go overboard. ;)

PT, I guess you don't remember this correctly, only the winners say it not the losers.

Go Eagles! :)

G Rating? What is so bad about saying I'm going to Disney World. If anyone is offended by that, it is a shame. If they said, I am going to get some crack, and buy some whores. I still wouldn't be concerned, but I wouldn't be surprised by oother people.

Legend has it that Eisner's wife came up with the idea for the "I'm going to Disneyworld" marketing program.

Players only go out for crack and whores after a regular season game. They step it up a notch for the post season.

They were going to ask Bill Belichek to say it but figured the audience would go to sleep while he was trying to get the words out.

This would be a perfect opportunity for USF to step in and take over... LOL ;-)

"I just won the Superbowl and I'm going to Universal Studios...."

While fans duke it out with NBA players, Shaq and Dale Jr. drop choice words on the airwaves and Michael Powell is still FCC chairman, the last thing I'd wanna do during this "Happy (bleeping) New Year" is PAY for another embarrasing gaffe. Before the fines, of course.

Well TO and Donvan are gonna be saying I'm going to Universal Studios.

"I just won the Super Bowl and now I'm getting a gig on Desperate Housewives"...;)

This is dumb. Wouldn't saying "I'm going to Disney World" be promoting family-life and a good image to counter the wardrobe malfunction?

I'd take a gig with any of the 'Desperate Housewives' :)

...then I'd go to Disney World.

RW....but who is trying to clean up their image? Fox and the, if they were willing to defray some of Disney's costs, then *maybe* they coulda kept Disney as a sponsor...flip side, maybe Disney wasn't willing to risk THEIR squeaky-clean image (Tigger's pawing notwithstanding) to put themseleves *in league* with Rupert Murdoch and Paul Tagliabue, LOL...:)

Oh, and Michael Powell....he's a SonofaBeast...;)

gator, really working the word play tonight...

This is what Conneaut needs.. superbowl sponsorship! :)

TV Announcer: "You've just won the superbowl. What are you going to do now?"
Donovan McNabb: "I'm coing to Conneaut Lake Amusement Park."
TV Announcer: "Umm.. where?"
Donovan McNabb: "Just go to and do a search for 'c-o-n-n-e-a-u-t' "

Oh, and for the record.. GO EAGLES! :)

Eagles don't even have a chance, so they should just contract one of the Patriots to say that. ;) I am from PA too, but I just can't see the eagles winning.

I thought Michael Powell resigned as FCC chairman last week.
Friday, January 28, 2005 8:37 AM
tambo: he did but he didnt. He submitted his paperwork, but the resignation isnt effective until sometime in March.

This whole thing is just business politics. Disney doesnt want to spend ad money on Fox network this year.

Well, they'll (Disney) get a freebie this year. Everyone will be talking about it...a lot more than when they aired the commercial last year I bet.

By the way, it was Disney(Land) out here on the left coast.

PT300 took the words right out of my mouth.

CoasterFantom2, then I guess you aren't one of the Philly faithful? I have been a long time Eagles fan and I believe they can win it. Nearly everyone thought that the Falcons would be in it.
