After Super Bowl XLVIII, Super Bowl MVP Malcolm Smith of the Seattle Seahawks continued a magical tradition by “going to Disney World” for a special parade in the Magic Kingdom.
Rising from the field moments after his team captured the National Football League championship, Smith beamed into the cameras and shouted those five words that for decades have become synonymous with Super Bowl victory celebrations: “I’m Going to Disney World!”
Smith, named the Most Valuable Player, was a game standout, intercepting Denver quarterback Peyton Manning for a 69-yard touchdown and recovering a fumble among several huge plays. Smith also added nine tackles as Seattle’s defense dominated the game. For the Seahawks, the win was their first Lombardi Trophy in two Super Bowl appearances.
On Monday, Smith appeared for a hero’s welcome parade at Magic Kingdom down Main Street, U.S.A., in front of cheering park guests and Seahawks fans.
