TAMPA — Super Bowl XLIII MVP Santonio Holmes and winning quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will attend festivities today at Disney World in Orlando, Fla., as part of performing the famous "I'm going to Disney World" commercials."

Normally the MVP does the commercial alone, but Roethlisberger, who tossed the game-winning 6-yard touchdown pass to Holmes with 35 seconds remaining in the Steelers' thrilling 27-23 win Sunday night at Raymond James Stadium, will join Holmes at today's parade. The two also will participate in other activities at the popular theme park.

The commercial features selected players shouting the phrase "I'm going to Disney World" while celebrating the team's victory on the field immediately after the game.

Super Bowl XL Hines Ward and teammate Jerome Bettis shared the Disney World commercial after the Steelers defeated the Seattle Seahawks, 21-10.
