6/5/10 Main Street Electrical Parade – Summer Nightastic, Walt Disney World Preview Night!

Hi everyone!

I am very happy that the Main Street Electrical Parade is back here at Walt Disney World!  I first saw the parade when it started at the Magic Kingdom in 1977 and enjoyed it until it left (and then came back, then left again!) Last year we saw this incarnation of the parade at DCA, with the new Tinker Bell float, light effects, and return of other parade floats. I have about 150 photos from Saturday and video of the entire parade!

Our joint YouTube Channel has over 430 subscribers and is closing in on 450 videos!  You can also find Mousesteps on Twitter.

I recommend these Jeff Lange Electrical Parade DVD's with vintage footage (from as early as 1991):

I took video of the first Main Street Electrical Parade on Saturday during the preview, and photos during the second parade.  I really liked most of the changes made to the Electrical Parade last year, you will see the light effects in a variety of these photos.  The extra lighting is really beautiful!

 

The crowd was thick for the fireworks:

But most had left by the time the second parade had started.  Remember I have full video of the first parade!

The first float is the Tinker Bell float, which was new for Disney's California Adventure last year:
