Does anyone know how the 'I'm going to Disneyland' Superbowl thing will impact the park? Do they do a parade the next day or the next weekend or ??

We are hoping that the park will be dead on Sunday with the weather threatening showers and Superbowl but want to plan our days off around potentially busy days. Google is M/T do when know when the Superbowl festivities will be?

Thanks for your endless wisdom-

:lmao: I think the saying is, "I'm going to Disney World, but either way, I don't think any Superbowl watchers immediately book a trip after hearing some football players say it on TV.

Superbowl Sunday is pretty dead in terms of crowds, and there aren't any parades the next day or anything. DTD might be busy-ish with people watching the game, though.

Shouldn't affect DL, but I think in the past they've had a parade during the week after the Superbowl at WDW. Don't know if they do that every year.

:rolleyes1 OOPS!

I always thought that it was "I am going to Disneyland" and then they had some sort of parade or something for some of the players. I was looking to avoid the draw from having the players there - not from folks taking additional vacations because of it. (Are folks really that gullible?) Since the Superbowl is in AZ this year I figured it would be a quick dash to California to do the talk shows and make an appearance in Disneyland.

Well, you all know what they say when you assume...

It's actually both - they have the player(s) say each phrase and then show the DL version in the west and the WDW version in the rest of the country. And they have players actually visit both DL and WDW, with a parade as Moosefish was thinking. At least it's been done that way in the past...

THANK YOU!!! That explains so much....I was starting to feel like I had gone crazy. I am west coast and know that since I was a little girl they have ALWAYS said "Disneyland". I couldn't have been hearing it wrong for all of my 29 (ahem :rotfl2: ) years.

Eli Manning comes to Disneyland
From wire reports
Article Launched: 02/04/2008 08:03:59 AM PST

ANAHEIM - New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning will take part today in a parade down Disneyland's Main Street, USA -- a day after leading his team to a 17-14 upset victory over the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl.

Scheduled to join him in the parade are youngsters from the Tustin Pop Warner football team, a Disneyland spokesman said.

Manning's time in Disneyland will be brief because he also has appearances scheduled today in Phoenix and New York.

The parade is scheduled for 10:30 a.m.

No...you're NOT crazy! I live in BC Canada, and the commercials we see are always "I'm going to Disneyland!"

I guess they tailor to which coast programming airs in!

They actually record both Disneyland (for West Coast) and Disney World (for East Coast). While these may air cross coasts (if Disney has a reason to only air DL or ony air WDW, both is usually the case). It was originally "I'm going to Disneyland" as said by Giant, Phill Simms.

I still remember when Nancy Kerrigan went to Disney World (or it might have been Land...that part I don't remember) after winning her silver medal and she was caught on microphone being really snotty about the whole parade. Memories...

I live in NJ and this morning Eli Manning said he was going to Disney World.

We were at Disney this morning and they cancelled the parade at the last minute. I guess the Giants must have partied too hard last night. :woohoo: They didn't really let people know. It got around by word of mouth. We didn't even know there was going to be a parade until we heard it was cancelled.

I saw a news report that showed a picture of the float and that Eli was a no show, but they must have still done the parade because all the little kids were still on the float. How sad, I bet those kids had been told they were going to get to meet him, too. :(

I heard him say "I'm going to Disneyland, baby!" in the commercial I saw last night on ESPN...


that stinks that he wasn't there, though...

MousePlanet is reporting that he "missed his flight". Dang, and he was supposed to get the Dream Suite tonight. I wonder if they'd let me take his place since it's gonna be vacant? ;)

I have actually seen both. Or at least I think it was both. We just saw the Im going to Disney World one on the Disney Channel on our Direct TV east coast feed.

Bummer! Not that I would have been there to see. haha but still.

I'm still fairly sure she was behind the knee-incident...taking herself down and blaming her main competition to get the sympathy vote and knock Harding out of the competition....:rolleyes1

I never saw the DL commercial this year. Of course I really was'nt able to get to into the game this year due to my beloved Chargers getting kicked out in the playoffs. I was also hoping that Junior Seau would get his ring this year, but no luck with that either. Here's hoping for next year:thumbsup2
