    Bring the Main Street Electrical Parade back to Disneyland!

    Bring the MainStreet Electrical Parade back to Disneyland!

    I would really, I mean REALLY like to see the MSEP back ON MAINSTREET in Disneyland.

    I really miss the full version of the MSEP, yeah, the Diseny’s Electrical Parade plays in DCA, but it never has looked the same to me in DCA as it did in Disneyland.

    I remember back way back when, they had two performances per night. One just after dark, going from IASW to MainStreet, then another around 11:00 PM that went from MainStreet to IASW. While it **was** the same parade, it had a different **feel** to it depending on which direction. I enjoyed each in their own different ways.

    Oh, well, never happen, but after listening to the Baroque Hoedown (as found by Hilsbro_Mclemington_III this AM, and then listening to the Disneyland MSEP version from my CD, well, I got a little nostalgic.

    Heck, back in the mid to late 1990’s I used to go to DL on a Summer evening just to have dinner, and watch the MSEP, sometimes twice!

    Oh, well, enough of my wish-list that I know will never happen.

    Thanks for listening (well, reading)

    I watched it last nite (saturday) and I felt the same way. It needs to return to Main Street. It seems so small and timid compared to how it was at Disneyland. (Or maybe I'm just taller now.)

    I would LOVE it to come back! It just 'belongs' at Disneyland- it was the first parade that was actually really magical and had a lot of repeat value. The music cannot be topped and it needs to come back! Add a few more floats as well!

    DL was not made for the crowding that happens at every pararde and show now. DCA has more room for that. It's much better at DCA.....I wish they would scale back the entertaiment at DL so it's not a sardine can several times a day and 3 times a night.

    I performed in it the last year it was in Disneyland . I think that it just dose not fit well in DCA. the scale is off and dose make it look smaller than when it was in Disneland. I would also love to see the other units brought back. I think bringing it back to Disneyland would be a huge draw and worth the complaints they get from people about thows stupid lite bulbs.

    ok...move it back to DL, but cut fanatsmic....they need to do something with the crowding that happens there nightly. I can't see how they would have 4 nighttime crowd draws in the park. Nobody would be able to even walk around until after 11PM...when it all stops. I mean it's horrible enough right now. I don't even stay in the parks at night unless the nightime entertainment is canceled.

    Re: Bring the Main Street Electrical Parade back to Disneyland!

    as much as i love the main street electrical parade, i don't think it should return to disneyland. don't get me wrong, it does not belong in dca either, it has more charm and fits disneyland way better. But i would love to see a new nighttime parade show. maybe something with the villians!

    I have a proposed idea- have just one show of Fantasmic! per night after the firework show. Use my ideas of a higher class Fantasmic! and make the show start around 10 to 10:10 pm at night. Therefore people can get situated. Then start the show and let it get out at 11 and people can go home happily. I don't know if its just me, but I'm done with rides by 9- then its entertainment all the way!

    Bring it back to DL and make sure it runs the same time as Fantasmic. That cuts the crowd in half. Run it 2 times like before so you can catch both shows.


    This has been a Filmways presentation dahling.

    first time it runs with Fantasmic.... or have the second time run with fantasmic.. lol that way the fireworks crowds can be ready better... as soon as it ends.. the crowd shifts to fireworks.. if there is on performance it runs with it.. if there are 2.. have the first run with it.. then second run closer to park closing...

    Cuts the crowds in half during the show, doubles the crowds heading out afterward. Post-Fantasmic crowds are bad enough during the fireworks, I can't even imagine trying to manage them during a parade, or worse, in addition to the post-parade mess.

    Yet another "bring back $DEAD_ATTRACTION" thread. Yawn.
