Description And Comments

This high-tech affair employs electroluminescent and fiber-optic technologies, light-spreading thermoplastics (don’t try this at home!), and clouds of underlit liquid-nitrogen smoke. For those who flunked chemistry and physics, the parade also offers music, Mickey Mouse, and twinkling lights.

Evening-parade performances vary by season, happening as often as twice a night during the busy times of year, to two or three times a week during less busy seasons. We rate it as not to be missed.

The Main Street Electrical Parade (MSEP) is the current nightly cavalcade at the Magic Kingdom. Its soundtrack—Baroque Hoedown—is a synthesizer-heavy testament to what prog rock might have been with access to modern technology and antidepressants. In our opinion, the Magic Kingdom’s nighttime parade is always the best in Walt Disney World, and the Electrical Parade is the standard against which everything else is judged. Disney is known to swap out parades (MSEP replaced SpectroMagic in 2010), and may do so at any time. If you’re at Disney World while MSEP is running, make a special trip to see it.
