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

    I completely filled up my 1GB memory card with things to share with you from my digital camera, after a pleasant evening at the Disneyland Resort. The most exciting news is that Disney's Electrical Parade returned yesterday night! I am so excited to show off my latest video; I am very pleased with how it turned out, and I hope you enjoy it too.

    I am going to keep it at that for now, but I promise I will have plenty of pictures when I return from work. See ya later, and Happy St. Patrick's Day!

    It's just not right having called anything but the "Main Street Electrical Parade". It belongs back in Disneyland.

    Oh wows, I'd forgotten how 70's vox and synth the music was.

    I was just thinking about this the other day. How many people remember back in the day when Fantasmic!, MSEP, and fireworks would all go in one night? It was not too bad...back then! But just think of what it would be like today. It is hard enough to get around with Remember and Fantasmic! going, but MSEP was a parade that people would line up 5 deep easy for. While it would be a great time to visit attractions, trying to move anyplace outside of Tomorrowland would be a mess!!!!

    Great video BTW!!!

    So, "Performance Corridor Electrical Parade" just doesn't have the same ring for you ?

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

    I remember watching it the first summer it came out. I is lovely but a bit dated. It is still magical to watch people walk around all lit up. That is something you don't see every day. The music is still happy and up-beat, even if it is a bit old style.

    I wish that Disney would do an updated version. I dislike WDW version which feels like it should be called the waltz of the disposed clowns. (Spectromagic's music is actually a waltz! How old school is that!) Happy music and colorful lights is what drives the older version. (Spectromagic gets a trill about turning all the color off! That does not seem a big deal to me. Kids love COLOR! Colorful coordinated lights are wonderful and should not be turned all white!)

    I say do new music that is up-beat, Disney themed, and fun. Create new themes for a sparkling light, colorful parade. Can you imagine what a Little Mermaid themed unit under the sea would look like? Wonderful! How about a color filled Aladdin unit! I can even see a Cars unit with Neon colored floats! The new parade could be quite wonderful if the Disney management got out the way and let creative people do it.

    Off topic, but everybody seems to hate SpectroMagic... I don't get that. I think it has the best, most delicious piece of parade music Disney has ever created. I love the emphasis it puts on instruments and the slow, waltzy rythm that doesn't try to get you to 'clap your hands' and that sort of thing.

    The MSEP is classic obviously, but I think SpectroMagic's a very successful 'modern' incarnation of it. Which I can't say for the overblown cheesefests Tokyo has produced. But I digress.
