    Re: 3/16: Disney's Electrical Parade Returns! Video + General Pics

    Thanks for the excellent video. Just a question for those that saw the "Main Street" version, didn't there use to be a big scroll behind the eagle (last float) that read "To Honor America" or something like that? Or am I thinking of something else? If so, I wonder why they took that out?
    Far from the frenzy of the frantic world above.

    Ok, I'm finally off work, and as promised here are my photos taken yesterday.

    It was sort of a hazy day.



    A whole bunch of interesting items lay backstage. See if you can spot a main street horse-drawn carriage, the base to a teacup, a storybookland canal boat, an assortment of benches, two canoes, and a splash mountain log.



    Two methods of transportation to reach our destination. The M&F tram...



    ...followed by Monorail Purple!



    Oh boy, Disney's Electrical Parade is back!



    Kimberly is excited to see my favorite parade too!



    Fly with me over Disneyland Resort.







    Wheeee!







    Look, rocks!



    I shall probe thy depths, o waters.





    This could pass as an A ticket, right?



    I love this shot because you can see so many things at once - the peoplemover railing, monorail track, submarines, observatron and Tomorrowland spires, Paradise Pier, and the Anaheim Convention Center just to the left of Space Mountain!



    It's a bright shot, but Disneyland is definitely feeling spring crowds.



    I liked the colors.



    I've never seen so many people in line for the monorail since it reopened! It stretched around the bend...

    ...Down the way...



    I look up at Purple for consolation...



    ...and this is pretty much where the line ended.



    I don't recall this ODV being here.



    How generic, from themings to its offerings. I'll take care to overlook this in the future while in the land of the future, although that might be difficult as it is quite large.



    The line for BLAB extends across Tomorrowland's main pathway, grinding movement to a standstill.



    I walk by the castle, but I can't really concentrate on that just now...



    ...because I have to - yes, you know what's coming!



    I need to use the secret bathroom!



    Once I'm out and feeling much better, I can take time to notice this nice view.



    Wow, my first flower hidden mickey!



    *sigh* Spring is in bloom, and it is gorgeous.



    One more view of the flowery Mickey. Those three are the only red flowers in the entire planter!



    Yup, things are bu-sy.



    I like the light in this shot. I took it while waiting to cross Harbor to the McDonalds across the street.



    On to DCA... funky neon!



    No commentary needed.



    Just another fix in paradise.



    I like the screamin' train, all in a blur.



    Orange Stinger has returned from its refurb but it was closed when I passed by.

    I will add my "well done" to the other posters on this thread!

    And nice photos, too. I was doing this post just as you were posting your pictures. Kimberly is a cutie pie!

    My own magical moment with this parade occurred in June of 2001. I had just been diagnosed with Breast Cancer and knew I would be facing surgery and chemotherapy. So one day I took myself off to DCA which was fairly new and I had not been there yet. It just so happened to also be the day the Electrical Parade was returning. There were various news media camped out and The Boys and Girls Clubs of So. Calif. were there. That night I camped myself on the sidewalk along with a lot of other excited fans. When the lights dimmed and the music started and the announcer came on, my eyes filled with tears. Most special to me, though, was as the Blue Fairy passed by she looked right into my eyes and waved her wand over me. That just made me feel so good and I knew that everything was going to be all right. Over five years now and still a survivor.

    And now a tribute to St. Patty's Day!









    We find a spot to watch Disney's Electrical Parade. I show off my light-up pendant and fiber optic hat!



    Hooray!



    And now I leave where I began. Thanks for looking!

    Wonderful video and pictures. I still get chills when I hear the Electrical Parade music even if I wake up to it every morning.
