KANSAS CITY, Mo. — What does a Super Bowl MVP do after leading his team to a championship?

Patrick Mahomes answered that question on Sunday night after the Kansas City Chiefs’ 31-20 victory over the San Francisco 49ers.

“I’m going to Disney World,” he said.

Mahomes even retweeted himself from seven years ago, when he said, "I bet it feels amazing to be the quarterback who says 'I'm going to Disney World' after winning the Super Bowl."

According to Disney, Mahomes will arrive at the Walt Disney World Resort on Monday “for a magical day of fun and celebration” that includes a parade beginning at 1:40 p.m. Central time. The parade will be streamed live on the Disney Parks blog.

Mahomes won’t be the only one riding in the parade. Disney says that for the first time, a Make-A-Wish child will ride in the parade as well. This year’s featured guest will be 10-year-old Nathaniel from Texas.

In addition to Nathaniel, 17 other Make-A-Wish children who wished to attend the Super Bowl will extend their trip to Orlando.

Disney Parks also will donate $1 million to Make-A-Wish in honor of Mahomes’ performance in the Super Bowl.
