Tonight during the Disney Parks Live! special event livestream tonight, a soft opening performance of the Main Street Electrical Parade kicked off at the Happiest Place on Earth giving guests a first look at the return of the dazzling spectacle of nighttime magic and imagination.
Removing the “ladies and gentleman, boys and girls” the new intro pays homage to its history before going into a classic synthesized version that fans will remember. You can hear the full thing in the video that follows below. Here’s a transcript of the new recording.
Fifty years ago, a magical parade sparkled to life bringing wonder and joy to the young and the young at heart. Alive with imagination, it continues to grow welcoming new friends and stories, inspiring new generations, and shining into our hearts with its heritage of hope; for its magic celebrates togetherness and the spirit of Walt Disney’s words that welcomed the world: to all who comes to this place, Disneyland proudly presents our spectacular festival pageant of nighttime magic and imagination, in thousands of sparkling lights and electro-synth-magnetic musical sounds: the Main Street Electrical Parade!
