On April 22, Disneyland Resort will see the return of a number of nighttime spectaculars. Disney California Adventure Park will once again be dazzling Guests with the popular show World of Color. Disneyland Park will have not one, but two shows making their theme park return. Disneyland Forever fireworks — which were created in honor of the Park’s 60th Anniversary — will light up the night sky. Earlier in the evening, Walt Disney’s Main Street Electrical Parade will make its way through the Park.
The Main Street Electrical Parade has been delighting Guests at The Happiest Place on Earth for the last 50 years. Upon its return, Disney did not want to give Guests the same thing they have been saying for years. This year, something different is happening. Disney has changed up some massive floats and Disney Park Guests will be seeing a parade that pays homage to not only films of Disney’s past, but incredible films from Disney’s present.
Traditionally, the final float in the Main Street Electrical Parade has been a tribute to the United States. It was a giant flag with the red, white, and blue lights shining brightly. However, that final float has been completely transformed to give Guests a fun, new look at some of their favorite Disney and Pixar movies. The grand finale float will showcase characters from movies like Encanto, Frozen, The Princess and the Frog, Coco, and more.
What will also make this version of Walt Disney’s Main Street Electrical Parade different from parades of the past is that you will have to see it more than once if you want to see everything. One side of some floats will showcase certain movies and characters, and different characters will be showcased on the other side.
Disney is now giving us a closer look at the gorgeous float that will wrap up the classic parade. They shared a video that shows how the float was created, and how Disney also honored the parade’s 50th Anniversary. You can watch the video, which was also shared on YouTube, below.
In celebration of the return of the Main Street Electrical Parade, Disney is also releasing a ton of colorful new merchandise, as well as a bunch of mouthwatering food options. An Elliot float popcorn bucket and turtle sipper — both of which light up — will also be available for sale. Guests will be limited to two per person for both the sipper and the popcorn bucket.
The Main Street Electrical Parade — along with the food and merchandise — will only be around for a limited time, so be sure to make your theme park reservations today!
