The return of the Main Street Electrical Parade to Disneyland park on January 20 also the marks the return of the parade’s original opening float. An illuminated Casey Jr. leads the iconic parade, pulling a giant drum that once again proclaims “Disneyland Presents … Main Street Electrical Parade” in bright lights.
This quintessential Disney Parks parade lit up the night at Disneyland park from 1972-1996, returning in 2001 as Disney’s Electrical Parade when it began its run at Disney California Adventure park. At that time, the lead drum float was changed to reflect the parade’s new name. Now, with the Main Street Electrical Parade returning to Disneyland park for the first time since 1996, the float has been updated to reflect the parade’s original title.
The Main Street Electrical Parade was performed more than 3,600 times for more than 75 million guests during its original run in Disneyland park, and has been seen at Disney Parks around the world. On Jan. 19, guests are invited to celebrate the parade’s return and to ride their favorite attractions over and over in a special, limited-capacity premiere event!
