One of my favorite parts of spending the day at the Magic Kingdom is the Main Street Electrical Parade at night.
Due to the amount of float pictures we took on a recent trip, we’ve split this photo gallery into two separate posts. If you want to see the parade from the beginning, click over to part one.
After Cinderella’s Ball, Peter Pan and Captain Hook sail by on the pirate ship.
One of my favorite parades in all of the Orlando theme parks is the Main Street Electrical Parade at Magic Kingdom.
Taking place at night, the parade features float decked in half a million lights, synchronized to music. The lights are dimmed throughout the parade route from the entrance to the castle, so the floats show better.
The parade starts off with Tinkerbell, followed by the Casey Jr. Circus Engine carrying Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, and Goofy, embelished with the parade logo.
Several times a day at the Magic Kingdom, the Move It! Shake It! Celebrate It! Street Party travels up Main Street U.S.A., circles around by the castle, and returns the way it came.
The floats are giant gift boxes, featuring some of Disney’s most popular characters dancing to the music. Among those you’ll see, are Mickey and Minnie, Goofy, Donald, Woody and Jesse, Baloo and King Louie, Chip and Dale, and Mr. Incredible and Frozone.
When the parade gets to the castle, it stops and the characters start dancing in the streets, along with stiltwalkers, encouraging the guests to do so as well. It’s a lot of fun!
On the day we visited, we caught the afternoon and early evening showings, and here are some of our photos:
We recently spent the day at the Magic Kingdom, and one of the highlights was catching the Celebrate a Dream Come True Parade, which is in its final days.
The parade will be ending on January 4, 2014, to make way for the new Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade, which is scheduled to start Spring 2014.
We captured a prime viewing spot, across from the castle, so we could watch the parade as it progressed around the roundabout. Here are some of the highlights:
