“I’m going to Disney World!”
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.
Foles’ visit to Disney World on Monday continues a Disney Parks tradition that began 31 years ago, in 1987. The celebration parade was held on Monday at the Magic Kingdom before throngs of cheering Eagles fans and park guests lining Main Street, U.S.A.
Super Bowl LII star Nick Foles took part in a special parade at the Magic Kingdom on Monday, celebrating the Eagles’ historic win. Monday marked the first time an Eagles player participated in the Super Bowl parade at Disney. The team was winless in two previous Super Bowl appearances.
Foles fist-bumped Mickey Mouse amid a shower of green confetti as fans cheered him on. He told the crowd, “It’s all right to yell. We’re world champs! We did it! We did it!”
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.
