    I am going to Disney World with my boyfriend in May. Will parades be back in the normal swing? I was really hoping to see the Main Street Electric Light Parade as it holds a special place in my heart.

    Hey there, Paige!

    Welcome to planDisney! Spring is such a wonderful time to visit Walt Disney World. The days are warm and beautiful flowers are blooming throughout the parks. Be sure to check out the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival if you will be visiting this theme park during your trip. Character topiaries, unique small plates, and global gardens make this festival an amazing way to spend an afternoon. 

    Parades, nighttime spectaculars, and stage shows have been making their way back to the magic over the past year. Currently, the Electrical Water Pagent, character cavalcades, and Disney Enchantment are all in full swing. And starting on March 9th, the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade will be making its way back down Main Street U.S.A.! Sadly, there has been no mention of the Main Street Electrical Parade returning to Walt Disney World. I can share that this nighttime parade is returning to Disneyland in 2022. This exciting information was reported on the Disney Parks Blog. I highly recommend keeping an eye on this site for updates on all the excitement returning to Walt Disney World in 2022.

    Paige, I understand that news is probably a bit of a bummer. But I want to assure you that there are so many wonderful experiences to see and do at The Most Magical Place on Earth. My current favorite nighttime show is Harmonious, which you can see at EPCOT every evening. The dazzling lights, fountains, fireworks, and music make this an unforgettable one-of-a-kind experience. Be sure to check the My Disney Experience app for showtimes. 

    I hope that your upcoming adventure is memorable and magical!
    We'll see ya real soon!
