Once upon a time, Patrick Mahomes wished he could say he was going to Disney World after winning the Super Bowl.
On Sunday, his wish came true.
The Chiefs quarterback — who became the youngest MVP in Super Bowl history after Kansas City’s 31-20 win over the 49ers — was able to utter those famous words: “I’m going to Disney World!” That comes seven years, nearly to the day, after Mahomes tweeted it would be “amazing” to utter that phrase.
I bet it feels amazing to be the quarterback who says “I’m going to Disney World” after winning the Super Bowl #Qbs

Mahomes earned that right on Sunday be completing 26 of 42 passes for 286 yards and two touchdowns to two interceptions. He also completed 8 of 12 passes (66.7 completion percentage) for 114 yards and two scores on the Chiefs’ first two fourth-quarter scoring drives, leading the Chiefs to take a late lead.
In the end, Mahomes got the happily ever after he wanted — and worked for.
