Watch Nick Foles' Super Bowl parade happening today at Disney World

While the party rages on in Philadelphia, Nick Foles will be bringing some of his magic to the Magic Kingdom.

The Eagles' quarterback is set to be the star of a Super Bowl Celebration parade down Main Street, U.S.A. today, at about 2:40 p.m.

Foles wasted no time letting the people know where he planned to be in the next 24 hours. "I'm going to Disney World!," shouted the Super Bowl 52 MVP with his wife and child in tow.

The iconic phrase "I'm going to Disney World" has became synonymous with championship celebration. The expression comes from a conversation between former Disney CEO Michael Eisner, Star Wars creator George Lucas, and Dick Rutan and Jeana Yeager, the first people to fly around the world without stopping.

"I'm going to Disneyland," Rutan said in response to Eisner's question of what he woukd do after his historic accomplishment. A month later, the New York Giants quarterback Phil Simms became the first MVP to say the famous phrase after a Super Bowl win.
