Giants Now: Phil Simms (finally) visits Disney World on latest Peyton's Places


Phil Simms visits Disney World on latest Peyton's Places

The phrase, "I'm going to Disney World!" is widely recognized.

Following the Super Bowl, a player from the winning team, typically the game's Most Valuable Player, recites the phrase in a commercial produced by The Walt Disney Company. 

But did you know that the advertising campaign began with Giants legendary quarterback Phil Simms?

Simms starred in the first "I'm going to Disney World!" commercial back in January of 1987, after he was named the MVP of Super Bowl XXI.

Despite starring in the commercial, Simms never received his subsequent parade at the Walt Disney World Resort to celebrate his Super Bowl win... Until now.

Simms joined Peyton Manning at Disney World on the latest episode of Peyton's Places to finally receive his victory parade.

The two former quarterbacks discussed numerous topics, including Simms' original hesitation to recite the now famous phrase, what it was like playing for Bill Parcells, and the big game itself.

Clips from the episode are listed below, while the full episode can be found on ESPN+.
