LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (Feb. 5, 2017) — Seconds after helping lead his team to a thrilling, come-from-behind 34-28 overtime victory over Atlanta in Super Bowl LI, 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, before throngs of cheering fans and park guests.

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.

White joins a stellar 30-year history of heroes from sports and beyond who have celebrated special achievements at either Walt Disney World Resort in Florida or Disneyland Resort in California.
