  • News Electrical Parade returning to Florida..?

    There's a press event going on at WDW, one of the announcements is rumored to be the return of the MSEP to the Magic Kingdom. Thoughts, opinions? That leaves the DLR with only one major parade, the Pixar Play Parade.

    Does this mean DL gets a new parade in the near future? I was hoping the Electrical Parade would go back to DL for the 55th but obviously that isn't happening.

    really? I thought I read somewhere here that the MSEP would be returning to DL. I hope that rumor is false..

      MSEP just isn't as fun in WDW. Heck it isn't as fun in DCA. Theres something about it and DL's charming main street that makes it soo wonderful. It just looks weird coming down MK's oversized main street.

          I think Florida needs it more now. We've had plenty of opportunities to see it. It will be back some day. I'm fine with moving it around, hasn't it been to every Disney park except Hong Kong?

            except Florida already has a nighttime parade, Spectromagic. Some enhancements/updates to that parade (similar to what MSEP got last year) would have been good instead.

            here's hoping we see it back at the DLR sometime soon!

              The DCA calander shows it's return for March 19, so it wouldn't be anytime soon.

              Calendar

              But seeing the past history of DL parades moving to WDW I can see it being totally possible in the future.

                  Any time a Disneyland park has an anniversary, if they can bring back old favorites in honor of the celebration, it will help in the nostalgia dept.

                  I'm sure there are people who remember the Electrical Parade at Magic Kingdom with nostalgia, just as we do about the parade in Disneyland.

                      Man, we just got a new float last year and now decide to move it to MK for a while?

                      Why can't FL get their own EP floats and leave ours alone?

                        Didn't there used to be 2 complete parades? What ever happened to the other floats that used to be out at DLP?

                          a) that'd cost Disney money! Wouldn't want to do that, now would they?
                          b) Spectromagic. Upgrade. NOW.

                            Yeah... What's going to happen to Spectromagic then? I'd prefer if they just change that up or upgrade it rather than take EP which got new upgrades not too long ago. I really hope this rumor isn't true.

                              We NEED the MSEP. Spectro has been running, except for a brief return of MSEP, almost nightly for close to 20 years. We need either something new or something old. You've had it off and on for years now. Like they say on the playground, give somebody else a turn.

                                Maybe...just maybe...they'll get their old units back from Disneyland Paris. IDK but I have a hunch they will since it wouldn't make since to add a new unit to DEP, reinstate old units and change the soundtrack. But let's wait and see...

                                  Also you have to assume that the whole purpose for a parade is to get crowds to stay late. You only get the parade in the summer when you need to draw more crowds and keep them in the park. This year with WOC starting up there is plenty of reason to go in the park and stay there till dark. Moving the parade which probably would not have been shown anyway down here to Florida where they need to try to draw people back and keep them late is a much more financially responsible use of the existing equipment. Give Florida something new, try to get people from around the area who grew up with it to go back to see it, and keep visitors who havnt seen a different parade between the time they were an infant and the time they could drive a car a reason to stay in the park again. It's a very smart decision when you look at it rationally.

                                    they are 2 electrical parades currently TDL Electrical parade Dreamlights and Disney california adventure has the electrical parade returning march 19th. Florida has spectro magic and Paris has Fantillusion which was originally at Tokyo. I dont know where Disneyworlds electrical parade went , I Imagine either it was dismantled or shipped off somewhere else!

                                      In either case, I'm curious to know if The Blue Fairy will be part of the returning parade or will they use Tinkerbell. And there's also the case of using the old Dumbo's Circus unit.

                                        Of course they bring this out as I'm about to post my ideas for a parade trade on MC! Oh well.

                                        I'd like to see the MSEP. I've only seen SpectroMagic. I love it to death, but it would be fine if it took a break or went over to DCA. It might fit well in DCA with the new "Walt Disney's California Adventure" outlook.
