You’ve probably heard by now that tomorrow night, August 28, we’ll host a live stream of the Main Street Electrical Parade from Magic Kingdom Park right here on the Disney Parks Blog. (Full details here.)

So, some of the best images we’ve shared this week are from the parade, which has enjoyed several runs at Magic Kingdom Park over the years.

This nighttime procession is led by Tinker Bell and is filled with glowing floats and favorite Disney characters, including those from “Alice In Wonderland,” “Cinderella” and more. The parade will officially end its run at Magic Kingdom Park on October 9, will head out to Disneyland park in California.

Do you have a favorite float that appears in this parade? Tell us in the comments section below!


  • I will miss this parade! When will it return to WDW’s parade line up again?

  • I remember when the Main Street Electrical parade was at Disneyland Resort in Ca.. I had 2 favorite floats back then. The Blue Fairy and Elliot, Pete’s Dragon. When the parade left Ca. some of the original lights used were available for the public. I have one of them. We were sad to see it leave. Now we are saddened to see the Paint the Night parade leave DLR. But at the same time happy to see the return of the Main Street Electrical parade.. Welcome home. Can’t wait to see you again.

  • Although this is not my favorite parade (I do not like the music), I really like the Hook and Pan float and the Cinderella floats!

  • It is still on the schedule for later in October so I have planned things around this.

  • Sad to see this go. Music always takes me back. Elliott is mu fav. Would be great if they could do something with the new Elliott for what ever replaces it

  • My favorite float is Cinderellas pumpkin. My favorite memories of this parade is sitting on the side of Main Street, eating hot dogs from Casey’s with my family watching the parade

  • I love Pete and elliot because no matter where you are along the parade, you can see them. And I must also say the music stays in your head just like small world. Going to miss it when we go later this year.

  • Pete’s Dragon

  • Any word yet for what will replace it at MK? It seems odd that WDW will celebrate its 45th anniversary without a nighttime parade.

  • Like many others, my favorite float is Elliot, closely followed by Tinkerbell’s Float and Casey’s Jr.

  • I love the American Flag float with the majestic eagle.

  • Pete and Elliot!!! I just love that dragon!
