    Re: Disneyland Parades Past and Present

    I will start
    1) Main Street Electrical Parade- was the ultimate show. I loved it so much i use to watch it instead of the fantasmic show. Is their anything compares to it? Its just one of those cultural phenomenon's that disney will never equal in parade. perfect lighting and music.
    2) Party Gras- I was in it when i was really little from what i have heard and the music that i have listened to. It must have been one hell of a parade. I love the idea of the big balloons and they even included roger rabbit.
    3) Christmas Fantasy Parade- A yuletide tradition. Again great music and anything to do with christmas makes it fun. Some of my best memories come from this parade.
    4) Totally Minnie- To small to even remember it i might not have seen it live but i have seen the video. It just captures the essence of the 80's with all the bright costumes. You never really see character focused parades anymore. And NO Showstops!
    5) Lion King Parade- Right after i mention no showstops i mention a parade with one. But this is an exception. In terms of true spectacle and wonder, their was no daytime parade that beat it. The costumes were amazing and the dancing was incredible. A classic that will remain in the hearts of all disney fans. This was in the middle of the era that brought many movie specific parades, another format that fallen to the disney wayside. I'm kinda tired of these cavalcade of characters from different movies get a theme!

    Disneyland's Main Street Electrical Parade
    Parade of Dreams
    Festival of the Lion King Parade
    Aladdin's Royal Caravan Parade
    *Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Parade, added this but it's because of the sing-along video and the dancing reindeer with their tongues hanging out

    and those are the only ones i liked enough to stop and watch.
