Kansas City Chiefs star quarterback Patrick Mahomes took the traditional trip to Disneyland on Monday, a day after winning his third Super Bowl.
Mahomes, who also earned his third Super Bowl MVP, helped the Chiefs lift the Lombardi Trophy in Las Vegas with a 25-22 victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.
It’s customary for Super Bowl winners to head to the happiest place on earth with their families after their victories, and Mahomes was no exception on his third trip to the theme park.
The questioner, who also visited Disneyland after winning the Super Bowl in 2020 and 2023, appeared in the Main Street USA parade with his family.
“It’s a tight schedule, we don’t get much sleep but we enjoy every minute,” Mahomes said.

Mahomes admitted he hasn’t had much time to sleep since his team won the Super Bowl.
Brittany shared a photo with her daughter Sterling and Minnie Mouse earlier in the day.
The images emerged shortly after the rest of the Chiefs team flew back to Kansas City from Las Vegas after a big night of partying.
Mahomes looked in high spirits, understandably, at the parade as he waved to all the fans cheering him on at the parade.
But he was wearing sunglasses that might have helped cover the bags under his eyes after so little sleep. Mahomes and his wife Brittany were in Sin City until around 3 a.m. Monday morning.
Earlier in the day, Brittany shared a photo of her and her kids at the resort, but Patrick wasn’t in the pictures.
Meanwhile, Mahomes had to face another round of questions from the media the morning after his team’s magnificent victory.
There, he underscored his desire to lead the Chiefs to a third title, a feat that had never before been accomplished in NFL history.
“No one has ever done it, and we knew that winning back-to-back is legendary,” Mahomes said. ‘I think eight other teams have done it. We had heard it all week.
‘We have to keep playing our best football. We’ll celebrate the next few weeks and then we’ll do it again.’

The quarterback, pictured with his wife Brittany, hoisted the Lombardi Trophy for the third time.
Last year, he made the trip with his wife Brittany and their two young children, daughter Sterling and son Bronze, who were almost 2 and three months old respectively at the time.
Mahomes performed heroics for Chiefs Kingdom once again when he picked off Mecole Hardman, who raced into the end zone in the final seconds of overtime at Allegiant Stadium to secure Kansas City’s back-to-back victory.
“It means a lot,” Mahomes said Monday. “I know how hard these guys work.
‘I know how hard these guys get after that. I know how hard coaches work. I think we are the hardest working team in the NFL, and all that hard work pays off.
“That’s something we always preach: We believe that we work for those moments, for those end-of-game moments, and we prepare for them.
“Being able to leave our stamp on this great NFL story is something I will never take for granted.”
