Right after the Ravens defeated the San Francisco 49ers, Flacco stood on the field in New Orleans and uttered the lines many a victor before him has uttered. He looked straight into the camera and declared, “I’m going to Disney World!”
On Monday afternoon, less than 24 hours after their big win, Joe Flacco was riding in a car with Mickey Mouse through the streets of the Magic Kingdom at Disney World.
The practice of the winner announcing to the world that “I’m going to Disney World!” or “I’m going to Disneyland!” began back in 1987. The athlete in question will be given a large fee for utter the line (which will be used in commercials) and then making a grand appearance at one of the parks. But it isn’t just for the cash, it’s a great (and very much coveted) honor. And honor that the Baltimore Raven’s Joe Flacco was very much thrilled to participate in!
