These sport champion parades/assemblies/promotions do the parks a great disservice.

I think these sorts of things are a nice touch, as long as they aren't blown out of proportion by Disney. Given the boom camera in the background of the parade photos, I have no doubt that it will be blown out of proportion.

It's a nice little home grown-style parade. Nothing fancy, but a nice bonus for people in the park that day, and a publicity opportunity for the parks; if only they could have had some Ravens-colors for the balloons, it would have looked a lot nicer!

And they really should do something about Mickey's football helmet (like never allow it out in public). It just looks a little...special. The costume would look better with no headgear, IMO, since the ears make it too difficult to make much look good.

Really? Why? I see wall to wall people wearing purple jerseys wanting to see their hero. I got chills seeing the Flacco WDW commercial this morning. Where's the disservice?

I don't think the parade got in the way at the park at all. Those that wanted to see it waited patiently. But other than that, it was hardly noticed. A few balloons at the hub, a few more on Main Street, a small roped off area in a place that didn't inhibit guest flow hardly at all, and that's about it. Then he's on the parade route about 5 minutes and it's over.

More importantly
Did the Super Sunday MVP and family spend the night in the Castle?
I could care less about sports but Love to know this is the way the game ends every year. I would be heartbroken if WDW did not have this commercial forever. It is a brilliant marketing campaign for Disney Sports and their guests.
I actually walked into a restaurant/sports bar and it stopped me in my or listening to Sports...very rare. But hey I want to go to DisneyWorld too!!!

Right after the parade Flacco flew off to New York to do Letterman. I don't even know if he came down with his family.
