The annual “I’m going to Disney World!” commercials featuring the pair are set to start airing on Monday. Disney officials said the commercials have been an annual Super Bowl tradition since 1987, when New York Giants quarterback Phil Simms first appeared in the spot following his team’s Super Bowl victory.

Theme park officials announced last week that Disney World will not host its annual Super Bowl parade this year.
