    Hello! My family is visiting Late January 2017 and I was wondering if the electric light parade will run on certain nights at Magic Kingdom or if it doesn't run at all certain times of the year?

    Hello Missy,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am so glad you stopped by with your question. A visit to Walt Disney World in January is sure to be a big hit with your family!

    The Main Street Electrical Parade has been a favorite of mine since I was a child visiting with my parents. There is something so special about the lights and sounds taking over Main Street, U.S.A. after dark that really creates lasting memories.

    The parade is typically shown nightly unless there are any special events or parties scheduled, so I don't think you'll have an issue seeing it during your visit. That said, because it is outdoors, there may be occasions where postponing or canceling due to weather may occur. I recommend checking the My Disney Experience app as well as the Times Guide when you enter Magic Kingdom park to make sure you know the exact timing during your visit.

    Wishing you a fun-filled family vacation, Missy. Hope to see you real soon!
