After making memories with his heroic play in Super Bowl XLV, what is Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers going to do next? In the frenzied moments just after the Packers claimed the National Football League championship Sunday night in Dallas, he stood in front of a TV camera and shouted five words that have become an almost iconic reaction to milestone achievements: “I’m going to Disney World!”
Now, now, we all knew this day was coming. Here we get our first look at one of the key promotional tie-ins for Disney’s Tangled, that for Pantene’s line of hair care products. Although essentially a rather eclectic and frenetic compilation of snippets from the film, there is one slight element of new animation created solely for this advertisement.
Disney’s Tangled stars the voice talents of Mandy Moore, Zachary Levi, Donna Murphy and many more and opens nationwide on November 24. For more information on the film including featurettes, concept art, character art, fun facts, photos of the meet & greet characters at Walt Disney World and Disneyland and more, follow this bookmark.
Disney Parks has just offered up this television spot for the Summer Nightastic promotion kicking off at the Walt Disney World resort on June 6. The ad does in fact use the theme we introduced you to back in early May, but the video footage used in the commercials appears to be exclusively attractions from Disneyland (note the Buzz Lightyear Astro Blaster guns that can be held, the Mad Tea Party, the new dragon in Disneyland’s Fantasmic! and, I suppose, the Hollywood Backlot sign from California Advenure, amongst others).
Following in the footsteps of former American Idol winners Kris Allen and David Cook, newly crowned Idol Lee DeWyze muttered the famous phrase just moments after the announcement: ‘I’m going to Disney World!’
The commercial is a tradition that dates back to 1987 and has featured mostly athletes from professional sports (as well as the Olympics) but began featuring American Idol winners in 2008 in honor of the opening of the ‘American Idol Experience’ at Walt Disney World’s Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park.

With quite a bit of new footage including an extremely irritated Wall Street Bull, Walt Disney Studios has just released this 60 second television spot for its upcoming F/X driven thriller, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice from producer Jerry Bruckheimer.
The Sorcerer’s Apprentice opens nationwide on July 16
Below is the tv advertisement that began running today featuring the Aflac duck in his 50th commercial. The joint venture between Aflac and Disney/Pixar helps to promote Toy Story 3 by placing the beloved duck smack dab in the middle of Sunnyside Daycare.
This is the second advertisement in which the Aflac duck meets the stars of a Disney/Pixar film, the first being a commercial that co-promoted UP.

Disney Parks has just released this tv ad that’s running in the Orlando market to promote Star Wars Weekends at Disney’s Hollywood Studios which commences at Walt Disney World this Friday, May 21.
Aflac is collaborating with Disney*Pixar to create the Aflac Duck’s 50th television ad and to celebrate the Duck’s 10th birthday by reminding people that Aflac is there to help out when you need it most. The commercial is part of Aflac’s integrated marketing campaign with Disney*Pixar to promote Aflac together with the highly-anticipated release of Toy Story 3, a 3D comical adventure opening June 18, 2010.
Earlier this year, Disney and Aflac joined forces in order to promote UP in a television spot for the insurance company that cleverly integrated the Aflac Duck with segments from the film.
Not to be outdone, Martin the GEICO Gecko has stepped in to help promote The Princess and the Frog and it’s reptilia y amphibia when the cursed Prince Naveen learns that being hexed is only the beginning of his problems. Is it too much to hope for the next commercial to have Mr. Toad saving money by switching to GEICO?
In any case, enjoy.
Kris Allen will be appearing in a celebrity motorcade on Friday, May 29 at 10 am at Disney’s Hollywood Studios
LOS ANGELES – To celebrate the newly opened “American Idol Experience” attraction at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, Kris Allen shouted the famous words “I’m Going to Disney World!” immediately after being crowned the newest “American Idol” in the show’s star-studded season finale on May 20, 2009 in Los Angeles.
Disney camera crews captured Allen’s celebratory pronouncement on the Nokia Theatre stage mere moments after “American Idol” host Ryan Seacrest announced the champion’s name to millions of viewers watching worldwide.
Not only does the newly crowned Idol shout “I’m Going to Disney World!” at the spot’s conclusion, Allen’s voice also is featured throughout the ad as he performs the iconic song, “When You Wish Upon A Star.”
