Check out one of the most magical parades in the whole kingdom with the Video: Main Street Electrical Light Parade.
Main Street Electrical Light Parade
This parade has been around for as long as I can remember. Being a little girl watching this parade was always a special treat for me and my family. Now as an adult I take my own family and just like that little girl, my kids get to experience this special treat.
This beautiful parade has been debuting at the Magic Kingdom since 1972 with the same catchy tune it has today. My kids and I get share in the delight that as kids we all got to watch this fun and colorful parade. The little girl in me still gets a bit giddy and misty eyed when this magical parade starts.
What to Expect
Share the magic with the kids and watch as Tink leads the way. Miss feisty pants herself debuts and shows off her true colors boss-ing everyone around with the wave of her wand. She orchestrates the magic with her fun-loving yet masterful ways. She is followed by a colorful array of characters such as, Alice in Wonderland, Pinocchio, Cinderella, Pete’s Dragon Elliott, Snow Whit end the Seven Dwarfs, along with critters and creatures alike and dancers. All while listening to the catchy tune that will stay with you for a lifetime! Seriously it will!
But the most memorable part of the parade to me has to be the American tribute featuring dancing patriots and a huge bald eagle. I can still remember being a kid and seeing this up close and personal. I thought it was the most awesome thing and I still do thirty-something years later.
Check the Times Guide at Magic Kingdom park for the schedule and showtimes. Since this is an outdoor show, it is subject to cancellation due to inclement weather. Showtimes are always subject to change.
Viewing Locations and Tips
This parade has many awesome viewing locations along the parade route. Our favorite viewing location is right in front of the train station where I actually took this video. But, get there early for this viewing location, it goes fast!
Other viewing locations along the route are the Central Plaza Viewing Area, Frontierland Viewing Area and the Town Square Viewing Area. This parade takes you from Town Square straight down Main Street to the Castle and makes a left towards Frontierland. You can for sure find a great viewing location along the route.
