  • When will Disneyland have a light parade again?!

    Now that it's been about 10 years since the Light Magic "episode", don't you think it's time Disneyland starts working on a new light parade?


    Or is that a thing of the past?... =(

    The Parade of Dreams is beginning to show its age. Last week the floats were a bit ragged at the edges. I would expect it to last the rest of this year. Something new should come with the next promotion/celebration, I hope.

      Most disney parades are long and packed with excitement. Why would you want a light one?

        /\ Cause I live in Florida, so I'd rather see a new "light" parade in Disneyland because by the time Florida get's a new parade I'll be collecting social security.

          LOL

          Actually I think Parade of Dreams is one of the shortest parades ever at Disneyland. Why they have to close off the whole parade route while it is running is still a huge mystery to me...

          Maybe Light Magic was short, but that was a parade/show and it was a little different.

            The problem with any light parade is that it'll always be compared to MSEP. And since people grew up with that parade they get nostaligic and nothing will ever compare...even if it is better.

              /\ True, but, I think if they did something along the lines of Dreamlights it would do very well since it's the Elelctrical Parade in theory...it just looks A LOT nicer. =)

                I actually enjoy Parade of Dreams, and think it;s better than Light Magic ever was. DCA's Block Party Bash parade/show is even shorter yet. But, it's still entertaining enough.

                The beauty of the matter is that WDWSageoftime can enjoy Disney's Electric Parade at DCA. Another kicker is that they can double up on the parade action w/POD at Disneyland.

                Stateside parks would benefit from looking at Tokyo for inspiration for parades...and other shows as well.

                    Tokyo's nighttime parade of the late 90s and early 00s looked to be exceptional. It was very much along the lines of Spectro-Magic in Walt Disney World, but far better. I'd like to see something similar come to Disneyland. The MSEP, while nostalgic, after being cut, and un-updated in so many years, is getting a little long in the tooth. Newer technology and better special effects, as well as more vibrant sounds, would bode well for Disneyland. DCA can still keep the MSEP, but Disneyland needs something new, exciting, and special for its nighttime entertainment on Main Street.

                      I think that it's a thing of the past. Disneyland use to do two different parades each day, one for daylight and one for nighttime. Since they have gone to only one parade it has to work for both day and night and a light parade will never cut it during the daylight.

                        Aha. Maybe they should take a leaf out of the Magic Kingdom's book!

                        I am going to regret that sentence aren't I.

                          No problem.

                          Just launch a super-giant Mickey balloon and blot out the sun:

                          The Eclipse of Dreams.

                          or would that be the Main Street Eclipse Parade ?

                            my thoughts exactly!

                            nothing can ever compare to the electrical parade!

                            stagnate parades like PoD and PotS cannot come close...

                            I would like to see a new electrical parade with new floats, and get rid of some of the segments of the old parade. Like the Alice, dragon and Snow White portions could easily go... and add other stuff in between - although with this we must remember that the baroque hoedown must be inline with what we're looking at too! so things must fit together to be good show.

                            I just really miss being able to comfortably see the electrical parade AND the fireworks in the same night! Having it all on main street was the best!
