    Does Disney World (FL) have plans to bring back the Main Street Electrical Parade for the 50th Anniversary year?

    Hi Daniel! Welcome back to planDisney!

    Don't you just love all the entertainment options that Walt Disney World Resort has?  Between the attractions, character experiences, dining options (that I would definitely include as entertainment!), parades, shows, and fireworks, there's never enough time to pack everything into one trip!  I absolutely love the Main Street Electrical Parade, and recently heard that it will be returning to Disneyland Resort in California in April!  While I WISH I could say the same about my favorite parade coming to Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, I have not heard anything about its imminent return.  

    However, that is not to say that there aren't dozens of other ways to be entertained both day and night around the Resort!  I know with your arrival date coming so soon, you may not still be at the Resort on March 9th, but if you are, you and your party will be able to see the return of the Festival of Fantasy Parade as it makes its way through Magic Kingdom Park!  You can find this and other entertainment options on a daily calendar on the Resort's website. 

    While you're making your way through the Parks, catching shows like the new Disney KiteTails at Disney's Animal Kingdom, or Mickey's Magical Friendship Faire at Magic Kingdom, you and your party might want to think about documenting your incredible journey throughout the Parks with Disney PhotoPass photos!  At certain locations throughout the Parks, professional photographers will get you and your entire party within the frame, so that you have memories of everyone and no one is behind the camera!  You can even purchase Memory Maker so that you can download and keep all of these precious memories even after you get home from the Parks.  Just have the PhotoPass photographer scan your MagicBand or PhotoPass card and you'll be on your way to savoring these family memories forever. 

    Keep watching the Disney Parks Blog for the latest news and updates on all the entertainment returning to Walt Disney World Resort! Enjoy your trip!

Meet the Panelist: Ashley, Massachusetts

Hi All, I'm Ashley! From the very beginning Walt Disney World Resort has always been a part of my life. As a child I excitedly helped to plan family trips, as a young adult I planned our "happily ever after" right on Disney property, and now I'm lucky enough to plan magical vacations for my three incredible children. When we're not taking in the enchanting experiences of the parks, we're home in Massachusetts, probably planning our next trip! Learn More About Ashley
