    The day after the Super Bowl when are the winners at MK? Is it a separate parade? How do I find out when it is. The last time our team won I was staying at a wdw resort and only found out the team was there when I was at another team that evening. No announcement was make and nothing on the daily schedule.

    Usually a short quick motorcade I think early afternoon. Assuming not published because hard to know the schedule of the winner in it, they're kinda busy that day.

    It's not guaranteed it will be in WDW or DL and it won't be announced ahead of time.

    It usually is "planned" the day after the Super Bowl and is usually the MVP of the Bowl but anything can happen. I believe one year, the MVP wanted to be there but also wanted his family to join him so it didn't happen until sometime later in the week. First the game has to be played, a MVP announced, celebrations from the winning team to happen, and then a decision on when to go to Disney and which Disney.

    As others have noted, its not guaranteed that they will be at WDW or that it will be the day after the game. It depends entirely on the winner and their schedule. I believe last year (or maybe the previous year) it was at DL. At least one of the years in recent memory it was a day or two later.

    When the Cubs won the World Series in November, it was announced on the Disney Parks blog on Friday that there was going to be a parade on Saturday. (The Cubs had won on Wednesday.) Plus, the team is probably going to have a parade and rally in their home town, which I would imagine they would want to do first. (Of course, the big difference with the Super Bowl is that it's just one game, and therefore you know when the winner is going to be decided, while with the World Series, you can't predict when the series will end.)

    When the Super Bowl is held in the a Western part of the country, I think they usually have the parade at a Disneyland. The Super Bowl is in Houston this year, so I'm guessing the parade will be in Disney World sometime the week after the game.

    Also, it's just the MVP, not the whole team. I have a friend who was at MK the day Aaron Rodgers was there a few years ago. I was so jealous. She doesn't even like football!

    Not sure if Brady will be in WDW because New England is closer or DL because he's a California boy...

    I'm just wondering if they'll give Big Ben the MVP or AB or Bell. I'd prefer AB myself.

    Maybe one year soon I'll get to see Drew Brees in the parade

    It's not always the MVP either. It'll be someone from the winning team. I think the park largely depends on its proximity to the super bowl city.

    I've seen the parade once, (Joe Flacco of the Ravens) apart from it being kinda cool to see a person that just won the super bowl, it's a little underwhelming. The Ravens fans seemed into it though.

    Brees has been in the parade before, not terribly long ago. He had his son with him. I'm no good at rembering who won what, when, but I feel it's been within the past 10 years or so.

    Fortunately that's not an issue for Brady or the Patriots.

    I guess not anymore, since Brady served his suspension for the cheating offense.

    Wish I could be there to see Dak & Ezekiel in the parade! You never see one without the other.

    This would be my next hope after the Steelers. Would be quite awkward though seeing Romo just standing in the crowd lol

    I'm hoping for a Steelers/Cowboys super bowl so we can correct the wrongs made by O'Donnell in the 90s.

    Ugh, those interceptions STILL hurt.

    Last Year the MVP of the SB was Von Miller but, it was Manning who went to DL for the parade.

    I've always wondered if Von was asked to go but, declined for whatever reason OR if Disney simply asked Manning because he was retiring.

    To me this is something that can't really be planned for.
    I do think it's amusing though that some are already putting Brady in the parade.. there's a whole lot of football yet to be played and that's a whole lot of assumptions.. lol.
