Disney pulling plug on famed Main Street Electrical Parade
No word on what will replace event
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – The famed Main Street Electrical Parade will end its run at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom park in October.
The parade has dazzled visitors with floats covered in colorful lights featuring Disney characters since it first debuted at the Florida resort in 1977.
The parade went on an eight-year hiatus at Disney World beginning in 1991. It ran again from 1999 to 2001 before the current version began rolling down Main Street nightly in 2010.
Disney didn't say in a Wednesday announcement what would replace the parade.
Disney said the parade will be shipped west for a limited run at Disneyland in California, where it ran from 1972 to 1996.
