For many years, the end to a magical day at DISNEYLAND would be capped off by viewing the dazzling Main Street Electrical Parade. Millions of twinkling lights covered each and every magical float in a parade powered solely by batteries! (Energizer was a longtime sponsor of the parade.)
The classic DISNEYLAND version of the parade stepped off nightly from 1971 until 1996. In 1997 it was transported to New York, where it was displayed as part of the premiere of the animated film Hercules. From there, it was sent to Florida, where it ran until 2000 in Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom theme park. In 2001 it returned to California to run at DISNEY CALIFORNIA ADVENTURE. In 2010 it was sent back to Florida where it remains to this day. (Though it is rumored to be returning to DISNEYLAND soon.)
"Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls. DISNEYLAND proudly presents our spectacular festival pageant of nighttime magic and imagination. In thousands of sparkling lights and electro-magnetic musical sounds. The Main Street Electrical Parade!"
