The summer is always an exciting time to visit The Happiest Place on Earth. Sure, it’s hot in Southern California, but Disneyland Resort usually brings in some fun entertainment that makes the heat completely worth it, and this summer was no exception. In celebration of its 50th Anniversary, Disney brought back one of its original parades to Walt’s original Park — the Main Street Electrical Parade. The parade even featured a new float honoring some of its newest films like Moana, The Princess and the Frog, Coco, and more. Disneyland Park also saw the return of Disneyland Forever fireworks, which were first introduced in 2015 to celebrate Disneyland’s Diamond 60th Anniversary.

As hard as it may be to believe, summer will be wrapping up soon, and Disney has announced an end date for both Walt Disney’s Main Street Electrical Parade and Disneyland Forever fireworks — September 1. Several specialty-themed treats were introduced to the Disney Park for the parade, and those will also be taken off the menus. Disney also released limited-time merchandise; however, they may continue to sell them until they are sold out — this includes the Elliot popcorn bucket and the turtle sipper, both of which light up.

While the Main Street Electrical Parade and Disneyland Forever fireworks may be ending, the excitement isn’t. On September 2, the spookiest time of the year will start at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure Park, which means Halloween will be all around! Not only will Disney be offering a ton of new, Halloween-themed treats, but the massive Mickey Jack-o-lantern will be back on Main Street, U.S.A.  Better yet, Halloween Screams fireworks will be back and the “spell-ebration” will take place on select nights in Disneyland Park.

There is still plenty of time to head down to the Disneyland Resort to see both the Main Street Electrical Parade and Disneyland Forever before they end on September 1. Disney is also offering an incredible summer ticket offer for Southern California residents. The summer ticket offer lets Guests visit Disneyland Resort on certain days between now and September 15, which means you’ll have a chance to celebrate both summer and Halloween. As Hannah Montana would say, you get the best of both worlds!
