    Main Street Electrical Parade

    We all know the state of the parade right now (I hope).... Just wondering, what would any of you like to see in Anaheim if it were ever to return? For me, I'd love to see it back in Disneyland where it belongs, the old music returning (the new music literally sounds like something from a kids show), and the BLUE FAIRY. What do you guys think??

    Re: Main Street Electrical Parade

    I would love to see it again! For me, I loved watching those bright lights come down Main Street because I have to stare and do nothing all day. It got me pumped up for the night and to be with friends. Read my stories for more animatronic fun!

    Re: Main Street Electrical Parade

    I would go along with the OP -- "Baroque Hoedown" as the music, Blue Fairy leading the way, and please call it the MAIN STREET Electrical Parade, not the DISNEY Electrical Parade. As you can see from my avatar, the MSEP is my very favorite parade, and probably the only one that I will take the time to watch from start to finish.

    Yes!! Just imagine the original music with an updated Blue Fairy and all of the current floats (without the annoying sparkling of course). It would send you to Disney Heaven..

    Seeing that parade return someday with the original Baroque Hoedown intact with my son is a dream of mine.

    I have had the misfortune of missing the MSEP and hope to have the chance to see it on MS with original name and music at least once before I die.

    Re: Main Street Electrical Parade

    I think the "Main Street Electrical Parade" returning would be a long shot after the big deal they made about it "glowing away" but whatever nighttime parade comes along I'd like Baroque Hoedown to be part of it and it be on the same level or better than Dreamlights.

    Re: Main Street Electrical Parade

    I first saw the parade in DCA in 2005, and just recently at the Magic Kingdom. So, I have never seen it coming down Main Street. That would be great. I guess time will tell what Disney decides about the future of that parade.

    I know Disney is all about "moving forward, not looking back," but this is one thing they should bring back. While there have been a couple of very good paraded (Lion King, Pixar Play Parade), no other parade has been as good, or as loved. And yes, it needs the original music and the Blue Fairy. And it should be in DL.

    Re: Main Street Electrical Parade

    Disney was dumb to do away with it, and even dumber to not bring it back. When they last brought it back to Main Street, the park was overflowing with people who loved it. We didn't want it to end, but like everyone tells us, change is for the better. Only in this case, they were way wrong!

    When you hit on perfection, you plus it, not delete it.

    Re: Main Street Electrical Parade

    In my ideal world they'll being it back, but not with any of the old floats. Completely rebuild it, yeah some floats can stay the same but just completely new. Some floats in the parade an the moment are starting to look really dated.

    To be honest, the day MSEP returns to DL is the day WB starts putting shorts in front of their films again.
