The Disneyland electrical parade is back and just as much fun as it was when I was a kid! Here are pictures of the excitement and what you can expect.
So we visited both Disneyland and California Adventure last week on a Wednesday (great day to go) and other than spending the day together my youngest daughter and I were really excited to see the Disneyland electrical parade! Ok, so my 8 year old didn’t really know what to expect but I did!! I grew up in Southern California and visited Disneyland Theme Park often where we would always stay until dark to see this parade as it lit up Main Street. I couldn’t wait to see if it were just like I had remembered it 30ish years ago and it was…..love, loved it! Special thanks goes out to Disneyland for sponsoring our visit to their parks so we could share these pictures and our experience with you. 😉 (originally published 5/17)

I don’t know why but these little guys were the first thing I thought of when I heard the Disneyland electrical parade was coming back. Just one of those memories ingrained in my brain from my childhood. Twirling around together as though they were dancing, they sure made me smile.
We sat near the entrance of the park on Main Street and got a great seat about an hour before it began to make sure we could see it all! We met some new people as we were waiting and shared a caramel apple that resembled Minnie Mouse’s head. lol. It was delicious.
Great time to grab dinner or dessert, find a spot to sit, and enjoy people watching and chatting before the light parade begins. There are plenty of benches up and down Main Street as well as curbs to lay a blanket down and get comfy!
Not only did they have lots of lights and music, but characters dancing down Main Street too which is always fun. A great way to end your day at Disneyland and if you visited as a child it will surely bring back some memories for you like it did for me. A great part of my childhood.
If you’re planning a Disneyland visit soon I would make sure you don’t leave too early and find a great seat at about 7:30 so you can see it all too…..wonderful day as always spending it one on one with my youngest. 🙂
