Following the Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl LIV victory, MVP Patrick Mahomes visits the Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida for a celebratory parade and is joined by Bob Chapek, Chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Products, Josh D’Amaro, President of Walt Disney World Resort and 18 wish kids from Make-A-Wish who wished to attend a Super Bowl and were then invited to join Patrick at Walt Disney World Resort. Nathaniel Duncan is in the center with mouse ears.
A 10-year-old Buda boy was among 19 children who attended the Super Bowl and then the Kansas City Chiefs’ celebration at Disney World, thanks to the NFL and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
“When the Most Valuable Player of the game, Patrick Mahomes, shouted the famous phrase that has become an iconic element of every Super Bowl, ‘I’m going to Disney World,’ all wish kids were invited to come along for the celebration at Magic Kingdom Park,” Make-A-Wish said in a news release. “In addition to the festivities, Disney announced a donation of $1 million to Make-A-Wish, extending Disney’s commitment to deliver comfort and inspiration to children facing serious illness.”
Nathaniel Duncan of Buda has cancer and his “wish” is to to attend a Super Bowl. He is described as a huge fan of the Chiefs and particularly of Texas Tech graduate Patrick Mahomes, who is the first graduate of a Texas college to win a Super Bowl as a quarterback.
Nathan’s father is Kierl Duncan and his mom is Adrienne. He has one sister, Nahla, who is 8, and a brother, Nigel, who is 5.
While at Disney World, the wish kids “got the chance to interact with popular Disney characters, ride the newest attraction at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, and enjoy a full day of Disney magic,” the news release said.
“The entire Super Bowl trip capped off by the Walt Disney World Resort trip was a life-changing experience for Nathaniel much like the dream-come-true night at Super Bowl LIV for Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs,” Make-A-Wish said.
