The football jubilation moved west from Arizona to the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim Monday where New England Patriots players Julian Edelman and Malcolm Butler celebrated their team’s Super Bowl XLIX championship victory with fans lining Main Street, U.S.A., in Disneyland Park.
Just hours after their title victory against the Seattle Seahawks, Edelman and Butler each were showing their Disney Side, riding in an open-air jalopy, smiling and waving to guests.
The Disneyland Band, Mickey Mouse and a whirlwind of fluttering confetti accompanied Edelman and Butler down Main Street, U.S.A. It was a dream come true for wide receiver Edelman and rookie cornerback Butler, who led the Patriots to a 28-24 victory over the Seahawks.
In the frenzied moments following their team’s feat of capturing the National Football League championship Sunday at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, Edelman and Butler stood in front of a TV camera and shouted four words: “We’re going to Disneyland!”
The Disneyland Resort features two theme parks – Disneyland (the original Disney theme park) and the reimagined Disney California Adventure Park – plus three hotels and the Downtown Disney District, comprised of dining, entertainment and shopping experiences.
