    It should really go to DHS on non-Fantasmic nights. DHS has a great parade route.

    So do we think that the Electrical Parade will actually be running continuously all that time? The promotion seems to imply it's for the summer only, but tis sounds like it'll be playing longer than the Nighttastic Campaign. I sure hope so!

    Yes and from what i heard it will return once TDA can plan to house the Electrical Parade and WoC all in one night. However, I also heard that 2015 will be the year that the parade is completley re-imagineered (in similar fashion to TDL's Dreamlights) and will perform on Main Street in time for the 60th anniversary

    I completely agree with you. Nostalgia is a cheap reason not change something. Very few things deserve the title of nostalgia as a reason not to change. MSEP is not one of them.

    Unfortuantley, the blue fairy float has been destroyed last I heard.

    I love what TDA did with the actual float upgrades last year, but all that work went out the window, when the soul-less Tokyo version of Baroque Howdown started. I pray that when the parade units are shipped east, the current soundtrack gets left behind and the original is used. Tokyo's soundtrack is almost too crisp and way too robotic...as a musician, I really dislike it (and I'm being kind).

    I wonder if Dream Lights will come state side for two years one year at Disneyland and the other at the Magic Kingdom. Next year Walt Disney World turns 40 so something is going on.

    I'm going to miss spectro! I know that MSEP has all of the nostalgia going for it. But spectro has been showing since I was born and I do think that spectro is going to be missed by my generation! I know my friends, who arn't really disney-philes, were really sad when they found out that spectro was going! But cheers to TDO mixing it up and giving guests new experiances that are direly needed in MK (and the rest of WDW, sadly!)

    Yes, I am one of those...I remember it from the 70s at the MK

    It is the DCA parade

    everyone in the know was saying two months to two years...earlier today a report came out that there actually might be plans to sell Spectro to Tokyo and keep the MSEP parade at WDW... I guess its a wait and see game at the moment as to what is true and what is not. If anyone would have said MSEP was coming to WDW this summer a few weeks ago who would have believed it really?

    If you mean at WDW, then you have a good shot of seeing it...if you mean at DCA then I would say probably not.

    Ugh. I am not happy that WDW is getting it. Do some upgrades on Spectromagic. Leave DEP at its home. We just got a new float and now its leaving.... yes their summer promotion and everything but all we got was a new dragon ( totally awesome ) and floatsom and jetsom but you get an entire parade... hmm. I know its harder since alot of visitors here are local but just saying. If it returns after the summer I will be fine!

    Why not simply enjoy the WOC you are getting...someyoutube vids of it being tested look pretty awesome IMHO!

    Well I have to say this for Disney. It's a smart move. Why? I had zero plans to go to Disney soon especially during the summer. Having been during off season I never want to be there during the summer again. But having MSEP there makes me want to book a flight right now. TOT is also a favorite of mine so that's another draw for me. Personally I think it's great that they are doing this for WDW. It's the park I usually go to but most people will agree it gets the least amount of love.

    My son saw it in WDW when he was a small child, he actually saw it before spectromagic. He's almost a teenager now, and he still asks about "that other parade...the one that was better" I'd love to see it again too, I think the music is so much better, more toe-tapping, hand-clapping...
    Sounds like a pretty smart kid, recognizing the inferior SpectroMagic parade to The Main Street Electrical Parade.

    Synthesizers are instruments.

The Electrical Parade music sounds like nothing else in the world. It IS the music of electric lights.
    But I can't stand that it's synthesized. I'd rather hear real instruments any day. I understand how it fits the concept of the parade, but as a personal preference, I'd rather hear Spectromagic's music. And the main theme of 'On This Magic Night' totally says it all for me when I'm standing in the middle of Frontierland on a summer night.

    Here's hoping I can make it down this summer for the "spectacular festival pageant of nighttime magic and imagination in thousands of sparkling lights and electro-synthe-magnetic musical sounds." It's been way too long.

    We got to go to Disneyland last year (the park I grew up going to), I can't tell you how aggravated I was that it was at DCA and not disneyland, so we didn't get to see it. Oh well, at least we got to see Disneylands (superior) Fantasmic!
