It looks like Michael Phelps is as fast on land as he is in the water.
Fresh from his Wednesday with Tiger Woods in Manhattan – at an EA Sports-sponsored party for the golfing champ’s new video game – the “Baltimore Bullet” is zipping off to Orlando to rub his broad shoulders with Mickey and Minnie Mouse.
On Friday, Phelps, 23, will receive a hero’s welcome at Walt Disney World during a special “America’s Homecoming Parade,” which a theme-park spokesperson describes as “a star-spangled salute amidst confetti and thousands of flag-waving fans.”
No word yet on whether Splash Mountain will be re-named for him.
After that, he’ll dive into some comedic work when he hosts the season opener of Saturday Night Live Sept. 13.
