The Main Street Electrical Parade Is Back!
The Main Street Electrical Parade is back! Boy, I never thought I say that again, but what a fun surprise from Disney. For most of us, this was the Disneyland parade of our childhood and every time I hear the song start, I can’t stop tears from welling up. It’s such an emotional parade as it’s so darn nostalgic for myself and I am sure many others!
Right before starting this post, I listened to beginning of the parade just to get pumped. The second I hear “Ladies and gentleman, boys and girls, Disneyland proudly presents,” I am instantly transported back to my childhood and that’s truly Disney magic.
Since this most likely will be the last run of the electrical parade, I mean lights were practically flying off the floats last night, I wanted to see it as soon as possible! I waited over two hours for my spot on Main Street and I have no regrets because where else do you watch the MAIN STREET Electrical Parade other than Main Street?!
If you’re planning on seeing the Disneyland Electrical Parade before it ends on September 30th, which I highly recommend doing because there’s no way these floats are going to last any longer, the two best spots to watch are on Main Street and Small World. If watching the 8:45 pm parade, immediately after you can file into Main Street or stand in front of Small World to watch the fireworks at 9:30 pm.
Before heading over to save your spot for the ultimate Disney light parade, be sure to grab one of the cute new treats or food items inspired by the parade like the ones below or check out this foodie guide by the Disney Parks Blog! The Disneyland parade times are 8:45 pm and 10:45 pm.
