Farewell To Spectromagic

With the return of the Main Street Electrical Parade to the Magic Kingdom at Disney World, it is time to again bid farewell to Spectromagic.

Spectromagic is the wonderful night time parade that debuted in 1991, but has been the evening parade in the Magic Kingdom, continuously since April 2nd, 2001.

Spectromagic Memories
It is unknown at this time whether Spectromagic will return at the end of the summer or it will be several years before it will be seen again in Florida.

We thought it was only appropriate that we share some pictures of Spectromagic taken over the last few years in  order to preserve the memories of this great parade.

Spectromagic includes roughly 36 floats (or units) and numerous walking characters that are also outfitted with colorful lights.  Over 1/2 million lights adorn the floats in this parade.

One of the more impressive features of the parade is when the lights change on all of the floats to go from multi colored to white.

The floats include many of your favorite Disney Characters, heroes and villans alike.  Whether it be Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland, Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs, or Captain Hook you find find them in Spectromagic.

Even the infamous Chernabog appears in Spectromagic.  This is one of the most impressive floats as "smoke" bellows from the float and at various point upon the parade route the float stops and Chernabog unfurls his wings where you can see him in his menacing glory.

There is also quite a bit of whimsy represented in Spectromagic.  You will see dancing Ostriches and Hippos from Fantasia and an animal filled Carousel.

Alice In Wonderland has her own float with the White Rabbit.

Here you can see the 3 Little Pigs.

King Triton makes his appearance at the start of several floats dedicated to The Little Mermaid movie.

Cinderella and Prince Charming ride in a wonderful pumpkin coach.

Minnie Mouse appears on a float along with Donald Duck and Jiminy Cricket.

Farewell To Spectromagic
Farewell to Spectromagic for the 2nd time.  After its initial debut in 1991 Spectromagic appeared at the Magic Kingdom until May 21, 1999, when the Main Street Electrical Parade returned for the first time.

Spectromagic returned with some changes and updates in April of 2001 and has been at the Magic Kingdom ever since.  We do not know when or if Spectromagic will return, but if it does it will probably not return exactly as it left.

Thank you Spectromagic for all of the great moments and memories!
