How 'I'm Going to Disney World!' Began as Post-Super Bowl Slogan

The phrase has been uttered by the MVP after every Super Bowl.

Since 1987, Disney's ad has always started at the final whistle, when confetti falls and a Disney camera hunts down the game's MVP.

The player then is asked something along the lines of, "What are you going to do next?" to which the athlete has always responded "I'm going to Disney World!" or "I'm going to Disneyland!"

So how did the iconic catchphrase come to be?

It's actually the brainchild of Jane Eisner, the wife of former Disney CEO Michael Eisner, according to Darrell Fry, Disney's sports media director.

"It was late and the conversation hit a lull as we waited for our food," Eisner wrote. "So I asked Dick and Jeana, 'Well, now that you’ve accomplished the pinnacle of your aspirations, what could you possibly do next?' Rutan responded, without hesitation, 'I’m going to Disneyland' And of course I go, 'Wow, that’s cool! You made the right choice.' But my wife interjects: 'You know, that’s a good slogan.'"

Since then, every Super Bowl MVP has had the same post-season vacation plan. And yes, the MVPs who've said the line actually do go to Disney World or Disneyland, where they are treated to a celebratory parade.
