I finally made it to ‘Disneyland’ to watch ‘The Main Street Electrical Parade’. As I had mentioned before, this was the parade I grew up watching. It still holds a very special place in my heart. Don’t get me wrong, I love ‘Fantasmic’, it gives me chills every time I watch it, but there’s something about the music and all the lights that I find electrifying (see what I did there?). I was sad to see it go in 1996, but luckily, I was able to go to Disneyland before it stopped it’s now extended homecoming run on August 20th, and it was just as magical as I remember it.
If you grew up with the parade, I strongly recommend you go see it. While maybe not as visually impressive as some of the newer parades and shows, the feelings of nostalgia are definitely real. If you didn’t grow up with it, I still recommend you go watch it to catch a part of Disney Park History before it goes away. I was thrilled they brought it back again, but they may not do it again, so catch it while it’s still around.
