Disney World has announced that the Main Street Electrical Parade which has returned to Disney World this summer as part of the Summer Nightastic! celebration in the Magic Kingdom will be staying on past the August 14th Summer Nightastic! end date.
Due to the overwhelmingly positive reaction to the return of this Disney World favorite attraction the end date has been extended indefinitely. Those of you who were not able to visit Disney World this summer do not have to fear that you have missed your opportunity to catch the Main Street Electrical Parade. It will be sticking around for awhile.
Here is the official Disney World press release:
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (July 29, 2010) – With its glittery galaxy of 23 illuminated floats, 80 performers, and trademark synthesizer music sweetened with Disney theme songs, Disney’s “Main Street Electrical Parade” has been leaving Magic Kingdom guests aglow all summer.
Now, the cherished entertainment spectacular is being extended by popular demand, Walt Disney World announced today.
“The return of Disney’s ‘Main Street Electrical Parade’ to the Magic Kingdom has been an overwhelming success,” said Magic Kingdom Vice President Phil Holmes. “Guests begin cheering as soon as they hear the opening fanfare and see those fantastic floats covered in lights. The parade is a magical part of a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort, so we’re thrilled to be announcing we’re leaving the lights on.”
Fronted by a new lead float starring Tinker Bell, Disney’s “Main Street Electrical Parade” officially bowed at Magic Kingdom June 6, 2010.
Beloved by generations, the parade anchors Disney’s multi-park “Summer Nightastic!” entertainment extravaganza of attractions and events. Once “Summer Nightastic!” draws to a close on Aug. 14 as previously announced, Disney’s “Main Street Electrical Parade” will continue an open-ended run.
