Disney World has announced it will not host the annual Super Bowl parade down Main Street U.S.A. at Magic Kingdom this year.

Disney says they will however continue the tradition featuring the Super Bowl star player in the "I'm going to Disney World!" commercial on Sunday night.

Disney Parks hopes to be able to bring back our other Super Bowl traditions next year, including letting football and Disney fans see and cheer on their favorite player in the park, the company said.


As a fun fact, that Disney Super Bowl commercial was created by Disney in 1987 when New York Giants quarterback Phil Simms first appeared in the commercial following the team’s Super Bowl victory. Since then, the commercial has featured some of the biggest names in Super Bowl history.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers take on the Kansas City Chiefs here in Tampa for Super Bowl LV on Feb. 7, and hopefully after the game we'll hear Tom Brady, Mike Evans or one of the other Buccaneers say they're going to Disney World!
