Disney releases photo of Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning in Disney World

The day after leading the Giants over the New England Patriots 21-17 in Super Bowl XLVI, Giants quarterback Eli Manning participated in a parade down Main Street U.S.A. in the Magic Kingdom in Disney World.

Disney released a photo of Manning riding in a red convertible. He flew to Orlando in the morning from Indianapolis and will be in New York City on Tuesday for the celebration parade in Manhattan down the Canyon of Heroes.

Disney has released more photos of the visit here.

Immediately after winning the Super Bowl , Manning looked into the camera and said the magical words "I'm going to Disney World" for the commercial.  Manning is now the fifth person to appear in the  marketing campaign twice. The others are: Joe Montana (1989 and 1990), Emmitt Smith (1994 and 1996), John Elway (1998 and 1999) and Tom Brady (2002 and 2004).

Here is a look at the history of the "I'm going to Disney World" campaign and how Phil Simms started it all off when the Giants beat the Denver Broncos in the 1987 Super Bowl 39-20.
