    I keep meaning to scan it in, but I've got a photo of a MSEP DL 35th birthday float from 1990. Next time I come across it I'll scan it, and the Party Gras parade photos that were also on that roll.

    Jeff put up more pics today here: JeffLangeDVD.com Walt Disney World?s ?Main Street Electrical Parade? - More Vintage Photos, Plus A Look Back At ?The Hercules Electrical Parade? in NYC

    Some of them are from the Hercules in NY as well. I did see a couple of Oz float pics online, those are pretty scarce.

    I've got a bunch of pix from the early years of the parade, as well as the soundtrack for it. I'll try to upload the pix tonight.

    For some reason, I am having problems looking at it right now (the video is staying in one place).

    Twice I clicked on the wrong link, getting bitten instead!

    Thanks for the link. Lots of nice memories for me with this and the others in this thread.

    For what it's worth, I graduated high school in 74 and that summer was my first working at DL.

    I remember the ad campaign - "Sparkle and song, all summer long"... fitting.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aTw0sDdLDTUMore digging found this next video, which is a slideshow from the WDW MSEP:
    Dailymotion - MAIN STREET ELECTRICAL PARADE (Walt Disney World)
    I just fast forwarded to each picture since it lingers too long on them individually, but at about 5:00, you can see the Pinocchio underwater portion with the Monstro float in the rear. I think they used some of the same photos that Jeff has to fill in the gaps but the cars and Monstro float do fit in though. There's also some shots of the neon finale in there.

    This guy has some other interesting videos/slideshows.

    This is supposedly a video from opening night. Some of the floats are hard to make out thanks to the video editing and low quality but is still really neat:

    Enjoy.

    I just this parade is super creepy!
