2405.6 #67 (DL Qual #160

Jul 1, 2012 2:40 PM  WDW Talk Land
#NEWS: I know many of you love Main Street Electrical Parade, but I have some rather unfortunate news (at least for WDW). MSEP is scheduled to finish its current run at Magic Kingdom this fall, and will probably be returning to Disneyland Park by 2015 for DL's 60th. However, for those who prefer (and miss) SpectroMagic, I have some great news for you... With that, I caption this "Returning: Spring 2013"

Yay for DL and WDW! Both are great parades. - Disneyaddict  374.7 #640 2:41PM
Yep! - dlmickeymouseCM  2405.6 #67 3:07PM
It has always seemed at home in DL to me, since that's where I saw it for so many years. - ally  509.0 #18 3:15PM
I agree! I have wonderful memories of seeing it at DL as a kid. But, since it's my favorite, I'll take it wherever I can get it! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1454.1 #3 3:43PM
Noooooooo!!!!! The electric parade is much better then spectro-magic! It has Baroque hoedown! DL why must you steal it back from us?! Well I'll be coming back for you DL and MSEP possibly next year, until then I guess spectromagic will have to do :( well at least I get to see it one last time in August until DL - nodell111  166.4 #55 4:21PM
I Agree! I grew up with MSEP at WDW! - TangledNdisneY  324.7 #27 4:38PM
You see, guests at DL want it back so bad, that it would have people lined up by noon just to see it when it returns. - dlmickeymouseCM  2405.6 #67 5:10PM
I grew up with spectromagic at wdw but I liked MSEP so much better - nodell111  166.4 #55 5:56PM
This is excellent news! Thanks for the info! - minigirl1156  789.9 #251 4:49PM
So sad! I love MSEP!! Glad I was able to share it with my kids in April!! - ncjal  318.9 #28 2:42PM
I love it too! Personally, I feel this will highly benefit both parks. DL fans want MSEP back and WDW fans want Spectro back. It's truly a win-win situation for Disney. - dlmickeymouseCM  2405.6 #67 2:43PM
Yayyy..spectromagic is awesome! MSEP is amazing, but spectromagic is missed by many WDW-goers:) - mickeynme  178.1 #52 2:47PM
Exactly! - dlmickeymouseCM  2405.6 #67 3:06PM
Although I haven't personally seen Spectro yet. - dlmickeymouseCM  2405.6 #67 3:07PM
Really? U'll love it..I don't think that either one is necessarily better than the other..they just each have their own style of greatness. Spectromagic is more of a WDW staple..plus it has more of a sing-along tune other than the electronic melodies of MSEP:) I will miss MSEP somewhat tho...lol - mickeynme  178.1 #52 3:34PM
Personally, after growing up on MSEP, I thought Spectromagic was a big dud! But, I can see how it may have sentimental value for those who grew up seeing it. - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1454.1 #3 4:08PM
Really? Yea,I guess you're right. It's prob preferred at WDW for sentimental value:) I guess that's why I like it do much. It's from my childhood - mickeynme  178.1 #52 4:56PM
*so much. Typo. Sry. Lol - mickeynme  178.1 #52 5:20PM
Just remember that MSEP started in DL, so it has even more sentimental value there. Also, more people grew up with it there and it was always there more than WDW. - dlmickeymouseCM  2405.6 #67 8:41PM
I am deeply saddened by this!!! My next trip isn't until Nov of 2013 that's when I'm taking my lil girl for the first time she will be almost 3 and that parade was one of the things I knew she would of loved to see. - BBNMickey  20.9 #170 2:49PM
Just another reason to take her to DL. :-) - dlmickeymouseCM  2405.6 #67 3:03PM
Oh well. No more clapping and dancing on Main Street at WDW anymore. Back to the snooze fest. Personally, the only thing I'm interested in photographing again is the Title float. - IndyandMarion  1278.9 #5 2:52PM
It is sad, however I am so glad that it's returning to its original home, even if I'm here and can't watch it. I know it belongs there. - dlmickeymouseCM  2405.6 #67 3:03PM
I could be wrong, but I think it's original home is WDW - DizneyGirl  1008.9 #8 3:44PM
Actually, the MSEP began at DL in 1972. I grew up seeing it every summer in the late 70s early 80s. - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1454.1 #3 3:51PM
Oh my, I'm so wrong!? Sorry! - DizneyGirl  1008.9 #8 3:51PM
No worrie! I was pretty sure it was original to DL, but I had to Google it to be sure. Gotta love Google! BTW, I have the soundtrack on vinyl and one of the "original" bulbs from when it was retired at DL in 1996. - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1454.1 #3 4:04PM
You cannot be that old! :) - DizneyGirl  1008.9 #8 9:02PM
LOL, that's what I think too! How can I be that old! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1454.1 #3 9:30PM
Sad! This is the parade I saw at my first visit in 1983. We didn't have great seats last year, will try harder this year! - DizneyGirl  1008.9 #8 2:59PM
Good luck! The second showing each night is usually way less crowded. - dlmickeymouseCM  2405.6 #67 3:06PM
There isn't a second parade when we go, but this is a great tip! - DizneyGirl  1008.9 #8 3:43PM
Really? That's odd. I'd get a spot early then. Lol - dlmickeymouseCM  2405.6 #67 4:14PM
Right we go in September, no 2nd parade. In fact it doesn't even take place every night. Only 4 of the 8 days we are there will they even have the parade. - DizneyGirl  1008.9 #8 8:48PM
Do you know what date this fall it will finish its run at MK? I'll be there in mid-October. - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1454.1 #3 3:06PM
It ends sometime in October. - dlmickeymouseCM  2405.6 #67 3:13PM
So will it still be there in October this year?*+.*+.*+. - CinderellaPrincess85  194.6 #45 3:13PM
Possibly. At least for part of it. - dlmickeymouseCM  2405.6 #67 3:21PM
Thanks for the info!! - Andrea84  730.3 #11 4:19PM
Yay! I grew up with it in the 70s! Looking forward to seeing it again! - MomWithAJuiceBoxBuzz  1191.2 #159 5:38PM
I'm super excited to have it back at DL! My son got to see it when he was an infant and now sees the parts on Disney Junior channel so I can't wait for him to see it live and for Brooklyn too!! - brodysmommy  452.4 #514 6:53PM
YaY!!!! - Wicked  282.8 #1092 11:24AM
