    Re: The ORIGINAL Main Street Electrical Parade

    I guess that's the Maleficent Dragon, since there's nothing else it could be. Also, does anybody else find it funny that the Elliot float added in 1977 to promote the movie, was/is the only promotional float they kept?
    I like The Happiest Millionaire. What's wrong with that?

    I don't think that float was ever used for Bedknobs & Broomsticks. And also, that is not a float in SpectroMagic.

    That was only in WDW & Paris.

    It was only intended for a year to promote the movie. It was kinda cheap. The Small World float was the one that burned down.

    Nope, that's the Chinese Dragon.

    Oh, yes it was! The fish musicians ARE from Bedknobs and Broomsticks in "The Beautiful Briny" number.
    The Toy Soldiers were indeed at Disneyland and my Super 8mm movie proves it! It's amazing what you can remember as a kid and I do recall seeing all of this. Not to debate with anyone here but I will stick with my opinion.

    Ahh, but don't assume it's been trashed. I've heard a little tidbit of news this past week

    The Fox and the Hound also had a promotional float featuring Amos' car I think.
    Now THAT I would love to see as The Fox and the Hound is my favorite Disney movie.

    I have pics of the parade from 1989. I'll see about getting them scanned in sometime today.

    Well I had heard it was wrecked. But care to elaborate on this news a little bit more?
