Disney’s Main Street Electrical Parade at the Magic Kingdom has been extended! I know this is not really new NEWS but it looks amazing and now I will have a chance to see it!
* Tinker Bell leads the eye-filling procession, waving from the basket of a balloon floating gracefully above a magical garden shimmering in fairy light.
* Pinocchio and the boys from the classic film’s Pleasure Island sequence join the parade, and Snow White joins the Seven Dwarfs on a diamond mine float.
* There are new lighting effects, and the parade’s highly recognizable musical theme is brightened by new technology!
*One of the original floats, the “Title Drum Unit” near the beginning of the parade, was created using an actual bass drum, one of the world’s largest in 1972. This drum had been used in Disneyland parades in the 1960s, when Mickey Mouse used to beat it using large drumsticks.
