"I'm Going To Disney World!" Serena Williams To Celebrate Her Legendary Career At Walt Disney World Resort
Serena Williams has had a busy September so far. From showing at New York Fashion Week to playing likely her last competition of her tennis career at the US Open tournament, Williams is ready for some downtime.
When asked what she was going to do next by reporters at the US Open tournament, Williams shared, “I’m going to Disney World!”
The “I’m going to Disney World!” statement has been an iconic phrase after major sporting events and big games for over 35 years. New York Giants quarterback Phil Simms first said it in January 1987 after winning the NFL Super Bowl.
Disney World turned the moment into a national television commercial, which is airing on TV networks, social media, and websites.
