Disney’s Electrical Parade

The Main Street Electrical Parade, also known as the Disney Electrical Parade, is my favorite parade at Walt Disney World.  I know a lot of people don’t like it because of the music, but I love the floats so much more than I did Spectromagic, which played for several years.  In my mind, the Main Street Electrical Parade is just a better parade to enjoy!

Some interesting facts:

  • Did you know that the predecessor to the Electrical Parade is the Electrical Water Pageant, the show that you can see out at the Seven Seas Lagoon?
  • Did you know that there are over 500,000 lights on the floats for the parade, and that the new LED technology bulbs use just 1/4 the electricity that the original parade did?
  • Did you know that the music for the parade is taken from the “Baraqoe Hoedown”, which was written in 1967 by Gershon Kingsley and Jean-Jacques Perrey?


I have several favorite floats of this parade, so I hope you enjoy all my photos!
