Who was the world's first person to say "I'm going to Disneyworld"?
The phrases "I'm Going to
Disneyworld!" and "I'm Going to Disneyland!" were a part of Disney's
advertising campaign in the late 1980's.
The week before Super Bowl XXI in 1987, New York Giants
quarterback, Phil Simms was approached by Disney reps and asked if his team won
the Super Bowl if he'd say "I'm going to Disney World!" while they had a camera
At first Phil
Simms declined but the Disney reps persisted and on January 25, 1987 after his
New York Giants defeated the Denver Broncos, 39–20, Phil Simms became the first
person to utter the words "I'm Going to Disneyworld!"
