True to tradition, Peyton Manning, quarterback for the Denver Broncos, celebrated the team’s Super Bowl 50 win by taking a ride down Main Street U.S.A. at Disneyland. Manning, along with his children Mosely and Marshall, were accompanied by a few familiar faces in this very fun event as they smiled and waved to the cheering crowd.
Super Bowl 50 was Manning’s first championship with the Denver Broncos. The Broncos defeated the Carolina Panthers 24-10 at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California on Sunday, February 7, 2016.
Manning’s Super Bowl 50 win is an addition to his impressive list of accomplishments, which includes being NFL’s all time leader in passing yards and touchdown passes. His 18-year career includes 14 Pro Bowl selections, two Super Bowl championships, and an NFL record for five regular season MVP awards.
Peyton Manning’s Super Bowl victory parade was held at Disneyland Resort on the Monday after the big game. Disneyland is celebrating its 60th anniversary Diamond Celebration through summer of 2016.
For the trivia buffs: Peyton Manning contributed to a piece of pop culture history in a slightly different way. For only the second time since 1987, the famous “You’ve just won the Super Bowl. What are you going to do next?” question was not asked, and the iconic commercial was not aired. Manning still went to Disneyland, though. This tradition was started by Phil Simms of the Giants with their Super Bowl XXI win over the Denver Broncos in 1987.
Why do you think the question wasn’t asked? I like to think he was in such a hurry to get to Disneyland that he took off as fast as he could. Wouldn’t you?
The decision to go to Disneyland (California) or Disney World (Florida) depends upon the location of the Super Bowl. Since Super Bowl 50 took place in Santa Clara, California, it was only natural that Manning would go to Disneyland.
Peyton Manning has joined an all-star line-up of sports favorites who have celebrated milestone accomplishments at either Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California or Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. Other notables include Manning’s brother Eli Manning, Joe Montana, Emmitt Smith, John Elway, Coach Jon Gruden, NBA stars Michael Jordan, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Magic Johnson, and NHL goalie Patrick Roy.
