    We are coming to Disney World over Thanksgiving. The Magic Kingdom calendar still shows the Electrical Parade during that week. Other web pages say it ends in October. Is the calendar incorrect? If no Electrical Parade will anything be in place of it?

    Hi Dawn! We were all surprised at the big announcement this past week about the closing of the Main Street Electrical Parade in the Magic Kingdom. Apparently, it will be heading to the west coast parks and we are all wondering if their great night parade will head to Florida. Lots of guessing going on at this moment and so many of the panelists have fall trips planned as well so we are all awaiting the latest news.

    It sounds like the last evening for the parade is October 9. They do not show this parade on nights of the special event party, Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party. At this time we do not know if there is a replacement or if they will go without a night parade for a few months. It would be very disappointing to so many guests not to have a night parade but again I am sure Disney has a plan and when they are ready they will announce it.

    It is hard to plan ahead but I plan on thinking that there will be a night parade when I am there in November. I am sorry I don't have any more information to help you at this time.
