Main Street Electrical Parade | Disney World Description
The Main Street Electrical Parade was a classic Disney parade which alternated between various Disney parks for the better part of a 45 year run. The parade featured floats and performers covered in hundreds of thousands of lights, which made for an amazing sight at night. The Disney World version of the parade had three runs: 1977-1991, 1999-2001 and 2010-2016. The parade was replaced by the same parade, SpectroMagic, after both of the first two runs and was not replaced at all (so far) after the third. It is unclear if the parade will ever return to Disney World or if it is permanently retired.
