The happiest quarterback on earth is headed back to The Happiest Place On Earth!

We were on the field at Allegiant Stadium to capture the magical moment on camera as confetti rained down on the Chiefs, players hugged their families and fans soaked in the memories. It was an unforgettable experience, especially for Mahomes who earned his third Super Bowl MVP award after sealing the victory with a game winning touchdown pass to Mecole Hardman with three seconds left in overtime.

Mahomes continues a long tradition of superstar players celebrating a Super Bowl championship by shouting “I’m Going to Disneyland.” The iconic phrase is the centerpiece of Disney’s famous Super Bowl commercial which started in 1987 and has added a little pixie dust every year to America’s biggest sporting event. I remember as kids we would wait after the game to see which player would be featured and dream of getting to say those words. You can catch this year’s commercial starring Mahomes airing this week on TV and social media platforms in English and Spanish.

Mahomes’s performance in Super Bowl LVIII was worthy of a magical celebration. Everyone watching the game will no doubt remember the final drive in which he completed all eight of his pass attempts and rushed for two crucial first downs before throwing the history making touchdown. This is the third time Mahomes has been named the Super Bowl MVP.

Fans can help commemorate the Chiefs championship at Disneyland Resort on Monday afternoon. If you plan on being in the park, you might see Mahomes enjoying the day while experiencing some of the park’s signature attractions. He will also be featured in a cavalcade with some of your favorite Disney characters so be sure to join the celebration on the parade route from “it’s a small world” all the way down to Main Street U.S.A., at 2 p.m. PT.

Even if you can’t join the party at The Happiest Place on Earth you can still partake in the fun. Keep an eye on @DisneyParks TikTok and @DisneyParks Instagram for photos and videos of Mahomes’s visit at Disneyland Monday afternoon, right here on the Disney Parks Blog
