Peyton Manning was honored and celebrated as the winning quarterback of Sunday’s Super Bowl 50, after the Broncos defeated the Carolina Panthers, 24-10, on February 7, 2016.
Manning did not do the iconic “I’m going to Disneyland!” post-Super Bowl commercial, at least not immediately after the game. Instead, he told reporters that he’s “taking his kids to Disneyland.”
The first “I’m going to Disneyland!” featured New York Giants quarterback Phil Simms following his team’s 1987 Super Bowl win.
The parade has become a tradition ever since with a standout Super Bowl player being celebrated at either Walt Disney World or Disneyland. Last year, New England Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler and wide receiver Julian Edelman were honored at Disneyland.
Wearing bright orange shirts and jerseys with No. 18, Denver Broncos fans came out and lined Disneyland’s Main Street, U.S.A. Monday afternoon to see and celebrate star quarterback Peyton Manning as he headlined a 1 p.m. parade today.
He had perfect weather for a parade. Mickey and friends were all wearing their new 60th Diamond Anniversary costumes!

Ever wonder what it’s like to work for Disney???
We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program (Fall 2013/Spring 2014) and have written a book about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.
We’ve included advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship, and how not self-term before your program ends. Our book is filled with lots of behind-the-scene stories of the magic of Disney. Available now at Amazon.com in paperback and Kindle formats. Published by Theme Park Press.
