Disneyland Resort guests have been thoroughly enjoying the magic of the nighttime spectaculars this summer. Celebrated nighttime entertainment returned earlier this spring, including “World of Color” at Disney California Adventure park, plus the “Main Street Electrical Parade,” “Disneyland Forever” fireworks and “Fantasmic!” at Disneyland park. As these shows “ignite the night” each evening, they bring a sense of wonder and excitement to guests of all ages.

While “World of Color” and “Fantasmic!” will continue their regular schedules, the “Main Street Electrical Parade” and “Disneyland Forever” fireworks will be ending their limited-time runs on Sept. 1, 2022.

Until then, you can continue to catch “Disneyland Forever” fireworks spectacular and the 50th-anniversary celebration of the “Main Street Electrical Parade” nightly. Don’t miss your chance to come and experience these two beloved nighttime spectaculars while they are still running at Disneyland park!

“Disneyland Forever” fireworks is a street-to-sky celebration filled with sparkling pyrotechnics and immersive projections that envelop you in a breathtaking journey with surprising special effects. This spectacular transports guests from an Anaheim orange grove into the worlds of timeless Disney and Pixar stories.

For more than five decades, the “Main Street Electrical Parade” has brought generations of family and friends from around the world together to delight in its nighttime magic and imagination. Led by the iconic train and drum unit featuring Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and Goofy, this fan-favorite parade fills Disneyland park with iconic music, sparkling lights and fantastic floats, depicting scenes from movies like “Alice in Wonderland,” “Cinderella,” “Pinocchio” and more.

In celebration of its milestone anniversary this year, the “Main Street Electrical Parade” debuted an all-new, enchanted grand finale that celebrates the theme of togetherness, as it unites more than a dozen Walt Disney Animation Studios and Pixar Animation Studios stories. As the grand finale passes by, guests along each side of the parade route see a different set of stylized scenes from classic and contemporary favorite stories such as “Encanto,” “The Jungle Book,” “Raya and the Last Dragon,” “Aladdin,” “Coco,” “Mulan,” “Brave,” “The Princess and the Frog” and more. 

This summer is also your chance to get your hands on the merchandise, plus the specialty eats and treats created in honor of the anniversary of the “Main Street Electrical Parade.” Maybe you’re eager to munch on the Mine Cart Brownie from Jolly Holiday Bakery Café or the Electric Relish Dog from Refreshment Corner. Or perhaps you can’t wait to snag a Light-up Turtle Premium Sipper or the Light-up Elliott Dragon Premium Bucket (while supplies last). Either way, make sure you get your theme park ticket and book your park reservation to visit before these items “glow” away!

  • Does anyone know what nighttime show will be at Disneyland in February?

  • …Until the Main Street Electrical Parade comes back yet again after “glowing away for the last time” in the 1990s.

    Not that I’m against the parade coming back, because it is iconic, but stop it with announcing that it’s gone and then bringing it back so many times. Nobody believes you anymore when you say it’s retiring

  • I love this iconic parade .. hope it comes back every summer

  • I am devastated the parade is ending so soon. I was hoping it would continue through September. We scheduled a trip just to see the parade but unfortunately we will miss it.

  • What an amazing run it has been for this iconic parade.

  • This is sad to hear. I had hoped both would stay until at least September 11, until the end of D23 Expo. I am flying from Europe to Anaheim for the convention and had hoped to see them.

  • I would really love for the Paint the Night parade to return to Disneyland.

  • This is disappointing. I hope it comes back as a regular summer parade. This didn’t give people
    decent amount of time to plan a trip to see MSEP.

  • Will the Main Street Electrical Parade be staying at Disneyland? Will Disneyland add it back to the parade schedule next summer? I hope they don’t send it back to WDW.
