Super Bowl XLVIII MVP Malcolm Smith followed a longstanding tradition of "going to Disney World" after winning the big game in what turned out to be almost a shutout of the Denver Broncos. On the day after the game, he was parading down Main Street USA with Mickey Mouse in a gala celebratory parade.

Although the post-game "I'm going to Disney World!" declaration is well known, Smith is actually the first defensive player to star in one of the iconic commercials.
