Nearly two years after its dazzling lights lit up the night at Disneyland, the Main Street Electrical Parade returned to the Happiest Place on Earth. On Friday night, thousands cheered as this Disney classic returned home. The parade returned to the Disneyland Resort once again for a limited run that began on August 2 and will continue through September 30, 2019.

Originally, the Main Street Electrical Parade began its run at Disneyland in 1972. It continued its run until 1996 when it concluded its first run at the Disneyland Resort.  The parade returned to the Disneyland Resort in 2001 in Disney California Adventure until 2010. Eventually, it made it’s way back to Disneyland in 2017 for a limited run.

With its different runs, there have been changes to the parade. This time around is no different. With a sharp eye, the changes will be recognized.

The Main Street Electrical Parade is a classic Disney tradition that many people remember fondly. It has been recreated around the globe at other Disney Parks. It also inspired the Paint the Night Parade as well.

Here is the live video of the opening of the Main Street Electrical Parade on August 2, 2019.
