  • [Chat] SPECTROMAGIC RETURNS!!!!! So where will Disney's Main Street Electrical Parade Go?

    I was reading the Mouse Planet Walt Disney World Update today and in the update they said "…A new Walt Disney World souvenir book has apparently spilled the beans on an upcoming change at the Magic Kingdom. A photo of a float from the SpectroMagic parade is accompanied by a caption that reads in part: "(Note: The magic returns after the Main Street Electrical Parade revival ends its run.)" No word on when that changeover will take place yet." As much as i hate to see the MAIN STREET Electrical Parade leave the Magic Kingdom, i feel that Walt Disney World has had a good run with the Disney Classic, but will Disney's Electric Light Parade return to Disney California Adventure with the new Buena Vista Street Parade Route. I personally would like to see the parade in Disneyland on Main Street to allow for more World of Color viewing and Mad T Partying. But im also wondering if Disney will send it out to Shanghai like they did with Disneyland Paris and Tokyo Disneyland back in the 80's? I hope not but i wouldn't mind an updated show like Tokyo Disneyland Main Street Electrical Parade: Dreamlights for the Disneyland Resort... Hopefully then the Blue Fairy will have her rightful spot Leading the Parade!!! (not that i hate the Tinker Bell Float, but maybe she go behind Captain Hooks Pirate Ship and after Smee in the Row boat).

    Sweet! I hope this means the final return of Main Street Electrical Parade to Disneyland. If not, I am gonna be pissed! Gives us our parade back already.

      Please God, bring it back home. Just do it already. It's what the people want. They admitted that DCA wasn't right the first time out, now admit this mistake and move on.

          couldn't agree more. Bring us our parade back! We still love it, and those of you who haven't seen it will enjoy it so much. I want a parade to show my kids someday that I know is truly magical.

          I would definitely cry if I got to see the Electrical Parade in Disneyland once again.
          I mean, I'd rather DL, but DCA is just fine and dandy for me. As long as it's in CA

            I wish we got a new parade. Keep the baroque hoedown but with new state of the art floats inspired by the originals.
            In the quest for quality, I have no problem with the characters footing the bill.

              I can't remember where but I read a story that was about the same topic. Book at WDW says Spectro returning. This was after Christmas and before Spring. People were stating on WDW's 6 month out schedule that you could see Spectro so hopefully the schedule changes. Which it didn't.

                I personnally would like it if they just made a NEW night time parade. But since that isnt going to happen then I dont see the problem with bringing it back except it would be VERY hard to do in both DCA AND DL!

                DCA problem is obvious: WOC! The pathways are impossible with lines cluttered waiting for the show. Maybe they can put them somewhere else and have the parade done before the show, but DCA is busy enough (did I just say that?) and I cant think of where they can put thousands of people waiting for WOC on PP route now? Add to the fact the people waiting for the parade at that time is just pure chaos. And Mad T Party creates another problem. It would be off the parade route, but the parade would have to compete with the music and party at night in Hollywood. They could shut the show down for awhile I guess or start it later, but it would kill the vibe of that place. And its too popular to take away for even a short time.

                So DCA would probably be out with WOC and Mad T Party!

                DL would be easier, but the fireworks crowds makes that hard as well! When MSEP was around, the fireworks wasnt as MS eccentric as it is now. Thousands of people are in the hub area now. Of course they could push the fireworks show back OR just make the parade later, but it would be a lot of logistical issues handing two big crowds in that area every night. Cant be fun for people who have to work it!

                But if they could figure something out, it would be nice! I dont care what park it goes to although DL would be a nice revisit since its where it all started, but either works for me.

                  They could bring back Light Magic. Then there would be no concerns with handling the extra crowds of the parade...

                    Just go back to the "classic formula" already! That is, the Electrical Parade on Main Street, with non-Main Street/Hub/Castle-centric fireworks. There you go.

                    I'll admit that ye olde parade could probably use a "freshening", sure. And some new floats (reflecting some of the more recent "classics", e.g. Beauty and the Beast) would be nice. But keep the original music!

                    I really think that the parade qualifies as something that's "so old, it's new". That is, it's been out of circulation so long now that for kids, it would truly be a new thing. And for us older folks, it's a wonderful memory brought back to life!

                    I believe a return to Main Street -- with a few new touches, and with a "relocated" fireworks show -- would be an instant success!

                          I loved seeing glimpses of the parade when we were in WDW last Jan, but my hubby can't stand the music! lol. To each his own. The grands were enthralled by the floats. If it does come back, I will be glad to see it! I have one of the boxed light bulbs from when it went away the first time! Great gift!

                            That's a rumor that's been going around for several years now.

                            But it's not even a "rumor" as Disney made it very clear in 2009 that the MSEP was "on loan" to WDW and would return to Anaheim within a few years. It's no big shocker that it would return to Disneyland, instead of DCA.

                                Man crowds would come in droves for this. MSEP is by far the most popular parade in history.

                                  I would love to see the MSEP back on Main Street. Loved it since I saw it when I was a little kid. Many, many years ago.

                                    Last I heard is they are trying to work aorund the legal of the fact it was retired. It may end up the Buena Vista Street Electrical Parade.

                                        I don't think it'll fit down Hollywood with the trolley wires, will it? Besides, they'll have to get real creative if they plan on running it with WOC crowds. It would be much easier to bring it back to DL. Although it fits DCA's theme remarkably well now.
