Super Bowl Hero Patrick Mahomes “Going to Disney World’’
Congratulations to my Kansas City Chiefs!!! It only took us 50 years! In the frenzy of the on-field merriment after helping lead his team to a 31-20 upset win over San Francisco in Super Bowl LIV in Miami, quarterback Patrick Mahomes turned to the cameras and shouted five famous words etched in sports lore: “I’m going to Disney World!”
Check out his tweet from 2013…
I bet it feels amazing to be the quarterback who says "I'm going to Disney World" after winning the Super Bowl #Qbs

Mahomes’ pronouncement followed a standout performance tonight in which he finished with 286 yards passing, 29 yards rushing and three total touchdowns. At only 24, he’s the youngest to win MVP of the Super Bowl. Mahomes will travel to Walt Disney World Resort after the game for a festive parade at Magic Kingdom Park on Monday.
He’ll continue his fun throughout the resort, including a visit to the popular Star Wars:Galaxy’s Edge inside Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

For the first time, Disney is inviting a Make-A-Wish child – 10-year-old Nathaniel from Texas – to ride in the celebratory parade, too, plus experience some popular Disney attractions and have a day of fun.
In addition, 17 other Make-A-Wish children, whose wishes were to attend the Super Bowl, are also extending their magical wishes by visiting Magic Kingdom Park on Monday.
And to make even more magical wishes come true in the future, Disney Parks is donating $1 million to Make-A-Wish in honor of Mahomes’ MVP performance.
It’s all part of Disney’s commitment to deliver comfort and inspiration to children facing serious illnesses – a mission we have shared with Make-A-Wish for nearly 40 years. Currently, Disney helps grant more than 10,000 wishes each year.
