Upon being crowned this season’s American Idol, David Cook announced “I’m going to Disney World!”

The phrase became popular following the 1987 Super Bowl and has been used since by NFL, NBA and MBL champs.

The use of “I’m going to Disney World” by an AI winner is part of the planned American Idol attraction opening at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in January of 2009. Park visitors will be given the opportunity to perform and be chosen to audition for the Fox competition.
