    No 'I'm going to Disney World' ads for the 2005 Super Bowl

    http://www.usatoday.com/sports/footb...ney-usat_x.htm


    Who will announce "I'm going to Disney World!" at the conclusion of Fox's broadcast of Super Bowl XXXIX?
    Nobody.

    After 19 years, the Magic Kingdom this year is canceling its Super Bowl promotional series in which a star of the game proclaims he's headed next for the Florida theme park.

    Aww... that's sad! It has become a tradition!

    It's funny... you think they could have totally done something awesome with the whole 50th thing... oh well...

    Well, I think the whole campaign had gotten a little stale, and now is -in fact- the perfect time to retire it .... since I think a declaration of "I'm going to DisneyWorld" during Disneyland's 50th Anniversary celebration would be particularly ill-advised.

    Why, simple... money. They have to pay the NFL (since it is filmed at the SUper Bowl), plus the player(s) saying the line, plus the film crew, and of course the air time for the commercials.

    They decided they would rather keep running the "Dogs" commercial plugging the WDW discount packages, and the generic 50th Annniversary spots. So the airtime that the SUper Bowl would have gotten, they will instead run the other two spots, plus they saved the cost of filming the third spot.

    I hope in the interviews whomever the MVP (Hopefully Brady) even with no question, says "I know what i am doing next... I'm going to Universal Studios". I think it would be just desserts for the mouse.

    I see no problem with retiring the tradition. It has become kind of stale after all these years. And the 50th is for DisneyLAND and WDW. So, it does seem kind of inappropriate.
