One of my fondest memories of Disneyland is the Main Street Electrical Parade. It just seemed like the perfect summer entertainment. The twinkling lights and sounds would MAKE the trip. Now I know that it is currently at DCA, but it is not the same. Disneyland needs a parade like that. I think that DCA should have its own style and a parade that fits its theme. (I think that a parade based on Hollywood premiers would be more fitting.)
I wish that Disneyland would open up their checkbook and create as magical parade as the Electrical Parade. It needs fantastic music. It should have bright lights. (The problem with fiber-optics is that the light is so dim!) It should have moving animations on the floats lit with colorful lights.
As far as I am concerned, the Main Street Electrical Parade was the last great summer parade. SpectroMagic at WDW stinks! The concept of the colors all turning to white as once is boring! Who cares! Give me happy music, bright colors, and whimsical animation anytime.
