  • Oh I hope it gets extended into October! I love this parade!

  • Best Parade Everrrr! The lights, the music, all the old-school characters… AND honoring America! A+ Disney~ LOVE! 🇺🇸❤️🐭

  • Such a huge fan of the nostalgia the MSEP brings to Disneyland, so many memories of childhood sitting on the curb of Main Street USA as the electronic voice of Jack Wagner announces the start of the parade and the goosebumps and anticipation. Why, then, would you guys chose to bring such a historic and iconic parade back with the TERRIBLE new version of the ‘Baroque Hoedown’, and not the Perrey-Kingsley original!? Such a miss here.

  • Everyone loves this parade! Let’s have more of what the people love

  • The Main Street Electrical Parade is the PERFECT parade. The lights, the colors, the music, the classic Disney characters all mesh beautifully.

    Millions of Disney guests have seen and loved this parade over the years. It should be in a regular rotation at DLR, instead of a hit-or-miss “special engagement.”

    MSEP is Disney Imagineering at its absolute BEST.

  • This is absolutely the BEST parade ever. To me and so many others that I have spoken to, The Main Street Electrical Parade IS Walt Disney World. I first saw it more years ago than I want to admit, and miss it very much.

  • I have loved this parade since I first experienced it in 1973. The lights and music are magical and I’m so happy it has returned, even if temporarily! Please keep bringing it back for encore performances!

  • When will be in Magic Kingdom…???
