Disclosure: I visited Walt Disney World as their guest with the Traveling Mom Network. All thoughts, opinions, fan-girl comments and bragging rights belong to me alone (as always!).
We’ve been visiting Walt Disney World for the past three years and each and every time we arrive, I pour over the agenda and plan our day around the parades, just to be certain that we are on Main Street in time for the festivities. Disney’s Main Street Electrical Parade is one event we had yet to experience, until last month that is. This magnificent sight takes place in the evening just before the Wishes! Fireworks show and around 30 minutes after.
TIP: Be sure to bring your stroller as kids tend to conk out during the show.
The parade originally made its debut in 1999 and then made an exit in 2001. Due to popular demand, Disney Parks decided to bring the Main Street Electrical Parade back and it made its return on June 6, 2010. Over 23 illuminated floats, 80 permormers and a trademark musical track makes up this glittering galaxy. It is one of the most incredible sights and a definite “must-do” while visiting WDW! Popcorn and snack vendors are located just off the Main Street and sell everything from drinks to snacks just before the event.
Well, I think that’s enough of my chit-chat. Watch the video and click through for shots of this amazing parade!
