James White of the New England Patriots appearing at the Magic Kingdom today

Feb 06, 2017 in "Magic Kingdom"

Seconds after helping lead his team to a 34-28 overtime victory over Atlanta in Super Bowl 51, running back James White had another milestone moment to smile about.

He’s going to Disney World!

White, fresh from a record-setting performance in which he caught 14 passes for 110 yards and three touchdowns, including the game-winning score, continues a tradition that began 30 years ago, in 1987. White is scheduled for a celebration parade Monday afternoon at the Magic Kingdom, joined by Mickey Mouse and pals on Main Street U.S.A.

The parade is expected to begin in Frontierland at around 2:25pm.

Monday marks the fourth time a member of his team participated in the Super Bowl parade at Disney, dating to 2002. No NFL team has had a player appear more than four times in the iconic parade.
