You may have heard that Disney is bringing the Main Street Electrical Parade back to Disneyland in 2017. That means the last showing of the parade at the Magic Kingdom will be October 9th. If you can’t make it down to Orlando by then, you can now watch a livestream of Disney’s Electrical Parade this Sunday at 8:55pm on the Disney Parks blog.
Disney made the announcement in this video:
Yes, the parade did ‘glow away forever’ once already at Disneyland, but it sounds like this really is the final hurrah for the parade. Technology has vastly improved since the last time the parade was upgraded and I think all Disney parks deserve something more current than MSEP.
Check out this new video showing the parade from the view of atop the floats:
That said, there has been no announcement yet as to whether a new night parade will be coming to the Magic Kingdom. The park’s 50th anniversary is in 2021, I hope we don’t have to wait that long, but it is a possibility.
If you want to see MSEP in person one last time at the Magic Kingdom. Keep in mind that the parade doesn’t run every night. So check the calendar to make sure it will be performing during your trip.
Do you have fond memories of the Main Street Electrical Parade?
