Chiefs Kingdom turns out at Disneyland for Patrick Mahomes victory Parade

Published

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes says he wasn’t distracted thinking about Disneyland or a victory parade down Main Street U.S.A. as he led his team to a come-from-behind win over the San Francisco 49ers on Super Bowl Sunday and his third championship in five years. But he was motivated.

“I’m always motivated by trying to get back to Disneyland,” Mahomes said during an interview in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle. “When the game ends, I’m always looking for that camera and saying, ‘I’m going to Disneyland.’ I got to do it with my family this time, which is always super special.”

Mahomes made good on his televised post-game promise of “I’m going to Disneyland” on Monday, Feb. 12 after the Chiefs defeated the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LVIII the night before in Las Vegas, Nevada.

 

Mahomes has now won three Super Bowls and celebrated with victory parades at Disney World in 2020 and Disneyland last year and this year.

Swifties hoping for a Disneyland appearance by pop singer Taylor Swift and her Chiefs boyfriend Travis Kelce had their dreams dashed.

Emily Espitia was in the front row of the Disneyland parade route in her Kansas City Swiftie sweatshirt along with thousands of Chiefs Kingdom to cheer on the Super Bowl victors — in hopes of catching a glimpse of the team’s most famous fan during the playoff run.

“I’m here to see Taylor,” said Espitia, 28, of Montebello. “I came just to see her.”

The Magic Key annual passholder who saw the Eras Tour five times last year knew a Swift sighting at Disneyland was a long shot — but worth a try nonetheless.

“I already knew coming into today that there was a very slim chance that she would be here,” Espitia said during an interview at Disneyland. “It’s still very exciting to be around everybody. There’s an infectious buzz.”

The Chiefs crowd on Monday seemed bigger than last year. Chiefs fans were lined up five deep all along the parade route with the faithful waiting up to four hours for the 2 p.m. start of the Super Bowl victory cavalcade.

Thousands lined the Disneyland parade route on Monday as a cavalcade of pom pom-waving dancers marched in front of a float carrying Mahomes, Mickey and Minnie amid showers of red and gold confetti.

Chiefs fans in football jerseys, T-shirts and hats lined Main Street U.S.A. amid visitors wearing Mickey Mouse T-shirts and ears. A smattering of opposing fans hoping for better results next season came dressed in Saints, Cowboys, Eagles and even 49ers gear.

Reservations for daily visitors and annual passholders were sold out for last-minute Chiefs fans hoping to see Mahomes parade down Main Street U.S.A. on Monday at Disneyland.

The Disneyland celebration marked the third post-game trip to a Disney theme park for the three-time Super Bowl MVP.

Mahomes went to Disney World after he led the Chiefs to a Super Bowl win in 2020 over the 49ers in Miami — a short trip from Florida’s Magic Kingdom. Last year, the Chiefs defeated the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LVII in Glendale, Arizona — making Disneyland the closer park.

Mahomes has dreamed of victory parades down Main Street U.S.A. at Disneyland and Walt Disney World as the Super Bowl MVP since he was a 17-year-old high school quarterback in Texas.

“I bet it feels amazing to be the quarterback who says ‘I’m going to Disney World’ after winning the Super Bowl #QBs,” Mahomes tweeted in February 2013.

Back in 2013, Mahomes was a junior at Whitehouse High School about 100 miles southeast of Dallas and Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco had just celebrated a Super Bowl 47 victory with a parade at Florida’s Magic Kingdom.
