After the excitement of helping lead his Philadelphia Eagles to their first Super Bowl win in franchise history in Minneapolis, quarterback Nick Foles turned to the cameras and shouted five famous words etched in sports lore:
“I’m going to Disney World!”
— Walt Disney World (@WaltDisneyWorld) February 5, 2018
Foles’ pronouncement followed a standout performance Sunday in which he threw three touchdown passes and he, himself, caught a TD pass on a trick play – becoming the first quarterback in Super Bowl history to do that – to help bring Philadelphia its first league championship. A backup quarterback most of the season, Foles lived out a true Cinderella story, passing for 373 yards in a game that saw the most combined yards ever gained in an NFL post-season game.
And the performance anchors a remarkable broadcast achievement: a Disney Parks commercial that will be produced and aired in the immediate hours following the game on network and cable TV, the latest example from Disney Parks of the true power of magic.
Foles’ visit to Disney World will continue a Disney Parks tradition that began 31 years ago, in 1987. Foles is scheduled for a celebration parade Monday at the Magic Kingdom before throngs of cheering Eagles fans and park guests lining Main Street, U.S.A. Once he arrives at Walt Disney World Resort, a magical celebration paying tribute to him and the Eagles will begin at Magic Kingdom Park on Monday at 2:40 p.m.
Foles will be the star of a hero’s parade down Main Street, U.S.A., with popular Disney characters, festive music and lots of confetti. Afterwards, he will enjoy some fun time in the park, experiencing some of Walt Disney World Resort’s signature attractions.
Shortly after the celebration begins, a live stream of the Super Bowl Parade will be aired for all who can’t be in person at the Magic Kingdom to celebrate from #DisneyParksLIVE Stream. Stay tuned to Chip and Co for the link once it is made available.
Monday marks the first time an Eagles player will participate in the Super Bowl parade at Disney. The team was winless in two previous Super Bowl appearances.
Foles joins a distinguished history of heroes from the sports world and beyond who have celebrated a major achievement at either Walt Disney World Resort in Florida or Disneyland Resort in California.
