Yesterday’s Super Bowl LVI had some incredible moments, like a touchdown in the final 2 minutes of the game, an amazing halftime performance, and a commercial filled with goats that were dressed as Disney characters.And if you’ve been watching Super Bowls for a while, you know that there’s one iconic moment that usually caps off the event during the post-game celebrations. Let’s take a look at that moment now and see how it was DIFFERENT this year than Super Bowls past!
Did you already guess what we’re talking about? It’s the “I’m going to Disneyland!” moment! When a team wins the Super Bowl, they’re asked “You’ve just won the Super Bowl — What are you going to do next?” It’s been a tradition since 1987 that the winning team answers by announcing their trip to Disneyland or Disney World.
Last night, the Los Angeles Rams took on the Cincinnati Bengals and won the game 23-20. Rams player Cooper Kupp, who scored the 1-yard touchdown in the final 2 minutes of the game, was awarded MVP. Aaron Donald sacked the Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow in a fourth-and-one play at the end of the game. And quarterback Matthew Stafford threw 3 touchdowns during the game.
Kupp, Donald, and Stafford came together with their families during the post-game celebrations to answer the classic question, “You and the Los Angeles Rams have just won the Super Bowl! What are you going to do next?” They answered, “We’re going to Disneyland!” The players and their families were joined by several children who attended the Super Bowl as part of the Make-A-Wish foundation as well.
This year’s Disneyland commercial was the first time that three players answered the question together!
Kupp, Donald, and Stafford will be at Disneyland Resort today (February 14th), so if you’re in the parks as well, you might catch a glimpse of them celebrating with their families. Disney announced a celebratory cavalcade on Main Street, U.S.A., in Disneyland park that will feature these players. The cavalcade will take place at 1:30PM PT, so head to Main Street at that time if you want to spot this year’s winning Super Bowl team.
If you can’t catch them in the parks, you can check out the fun on the Disney Parks TikTok page or the Disney Parks Instagram for a livestream of the cavalcade at 1:30PM PT.
Congratulations to the L.A. Rams, and we hope the players have a magical time celebrating their victory! Keep following DFB for more of the latest Disney news.
