Main Street Electrical Parade preview – Summer Nightastic at WDW

Today Walt Disney World arranged a special preview of the Main Street Electrical Parade as it prepares for a return to the Magic Kingdom for Summer Nightastic! starting June 6th. We were taken backstage to the special warehouse where the talented crew at Disney is putting the final touches on the floats.

The MSEP was my Disney parade growing up. Every summer it was there at Disneyland like an old friend. You might say farewell for a while, but you never really said goodbye.

Below the jump are a few photos to whet your appetite. I’ll have much more later

    Sad that they are keeping the generic “Disney’s Electrical Parade” branding. Totally vomit inducing ;)

    I cannot wait! Trust me, my husband and I will be there to see it more than a few times this Summer. We have missed it!!!

  3. Jack says:

    Good to see that the MSEP is back home for awhile! I love Spectromagic, but it just feels right when the MSEP is back where it started.

    • Jake Ryan says:

      You realize that MSEP started at Disneyland, not Walt Disney World… right?

      I’m not exactly sure how this is a homecoming, when it’s being taken away from it’s actual home.
