Update: The Electrical Parade is no longer appearing at the Magic Kingdom at Disney World it is now Disneyland. I am unsure how long it will be at Disneyland.
Electrical Parade Nightly at the Magic Kingdom
The magic Kingdom has finally updated its night time parade and it is fantastic. Not that there was anything wrong with the old Magic Kingdom parade, but how many times can you see the same exact parade! Granted, most people don’t get stationed in Florida and spend a year off and on at Disney!
It had been three years since I was lucky enough to see the night time parade at the Magic Kingdom after moving away. I don’t know when they changed it, but it is a completely new parade from the last one I saw the 2010 Electrical Parade.

I did not think much about the 7 dwarfs being brought into the Electrical parade, but then I found out that the new ride that will complete the all new Fantasyland in 2014 will be the Mine Train a family roller coaster based on the 7 dwarfs.
|Puff the Magic Dragon|
I do not know why, but I was most surprised to see Puff the Magic Dragon. Maybe it was because he is an almost forgotten about character. My kids did not know who he was.

The new Electric Parade is fabulous. I hope you enjoy it too!
The parade was created by Robert Jani and project director Ron Miziker. It features floats and live performers covered in over 600,000 electronically controlled LED lights and a synchronized soundtrack triggered by radio control along key areas of the parade route.
Disclosure: I attended a conference at Walt Disney World and my park tickets were included.
