Disneyland Resort

If you grew up waiting with bated breath for the sights and sounds of Disney’s Main Street Electrical Parade to make it’s way down Main Street U.S.A., you’ll be happy to learn it’s making a comeback!

Celebrating its 50th year (yes, you’re that old), the parade will officially return to Disneyland Park on Apr. 22, 2022! As if that wasn’t enough, the California resort is also bringing back several other nighttime attractions we’ve been missing the past few years. In a newly released video, Disneyland is finally sharing a sneak peek of the parade in action as it returns to the park.


First, the Main Street Electrical Parade is not only celebrating 50 years, but also a bit of a makeover. A brand new grand finale awaits, with more than a dozen Disney Animation and Pixar stories including Encanto, The Jungle BookRaya and the Last DragonAladdinCocoMulanBraveThe Princess and the Frog and more. And as always, each will be represented  “In thousand of sparkling lights and electro-synthe-magnetic musical sounds.”

With the new floats, the parade is now one of the longest and most gorgeous in the 50-year history, where you’ll get an extra seven segments and 118 feet of non-stop gorgeousness.


Fantasmic is finally returning to the Rivers of America where you’ll be able to reconnect with scenes from The Little Mermaid, Fantasia and the Maleficent Dragon. The Disneyland Forever fireworks spectacular will also reclaim its place at the park, bringing lots of pyrotechnics, projections and more exciting special effects.
