Pete’s Dragon Main Street Electrical parade

Can’t visit the Happiest Place on Earth to see the ‘Main Street Electrical Parade’ during its latest limited-time encore visit to Disneyland? Don’t worry, the fine folks at Disney Parks have an online live stream of the parade on its first night of its return engagement scheduled for this Friday night.

Watch Main Street Electrical Parade return live here:

The night parade has been a fan favorite since its debut on Main Street U.S.A. 47 years ago. It has evolved over the years and the latest version incorporates bright LED lights and a new soundtrack mix together with the traditional sparkling lights and “electro-syntho-magnetic musical sounds.”

With a 8:55pm PT start time, us East coasters will have all night to throw our own MSEP themed parties before tuning in for the fun.

If you’d rather see it in person, make your plans soon. The limited-time engagement runs from August 2 through September 30, 2019. Bonus points if you Disney Bound as the finale float.

Am I bitter that Disney still hasn’t come up with a suitable replacement for the MSEP with the latest technologies that will make fantastic new memories for new generations? Sure. But I take some solace that this generation will get one more encounter with the special magic of this nighttime spectacle and its talented cast.
