The Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World will be a lot more lively this summer with the return of the beloved Main Street Electrical Parade, a Disney classic that is part of many, many childhood memories. The parade’s return is part of a special summer promotion called Summer Nightastic!
“Even the music is guaranteed to bring back Disney memories,” said Walt Disney World president Meg Crofton Wednesday evening.
The return of Electrical Parade, is expected to take place in June; it will run through the summer.
The parade debuted at Walt Disney World in 1977 and ran until 1991, when it was replaced by the SpectroMagic parade. It later returned for a limited engagement from 1999-2001.
