The night shows ignite the night again
Over the past five decades, the “Main Street Electric Parade” has brought together generations of family and friends from around the world to revel in its nocturnal magic and imagination. Summarizing this enduring appeal, Disney Live Entertainment presents an all-new grand finale that celebrates 50 years of togetherness and continues the enchantment for a whole new generation of dreamers. This universal theme is reflected in the creative concept for the new final sequence, and it continues the evolution of this darling spectacular.
Inspired by the iconic art style of Disney Legend Mary Blair on ‘It’s a Small World’ and the design of the classic ‘Main Street Electrical Parade’ floats, these stories are performed in thousands of twinkling lights and electro musical sound -synthetic-magnetic, with depictions of beloved characters as animated dolls.
As it passes, guests along the parade route see a different set of stories depicted on each side of the float, featuring stylized scenes from more than a dozen Walt Animation Studios films. Disney and Pixar animation studios such as “Encanto”, “Frozen”, “”The Jungle Book”, “Raya and the Last Dragon”, “Aladdin”, “Coco”, “Mulan”, “Brave”, “The Princess and the Frog” and more.
“Color World” at Disney California Adventure brings the animation to life with powerful fountains that create a huge screen of water. Combining music, fire, fog and laser effects with memorable animated sequences, “World of Color” floods the senses and immerses audiences in some favorite Disney and Pixar stories.
