Each year, someone from the winning team of the Super Bowl heads to Walt Disney World or Disneyland and this year will be no different. The Philadelphia Eagles were able to do the unexpected and defeat the New England Patriots 41-33 for the first-ever NFL championship in the franchise’s history. As confetti rained down from the ceiling, it was time for someone from the Eagles to celebrate at Walt Disney World.
In 1987, the New York Giants defeated the Denver Broncos and the MVP award went to quarterback Phil Simms. As seen in this video, it was also the first time ever that someone was asked, “You just won the Super Bowl, what are you doing next?”
Simms looked out with a smile and simply said, “I’m gonna go to Disney World,” and a tradition was born.
There were not a lot of people who gave the Eagles much of a chance to win the game, but they were able to do it with strong defense and the talent of Nick Foles. The quarterback took his young daughter into his arms and raised her above his head as she looked down at the MVP of Super Bowl LII.
