Disney’s Magic Kingdom: Electrical Parade

February 29, 2016

We knew there was to be an evening parade but somehow we thought it would be a repeat of the earlier one.  We didn’t plan on watching it again, but found ourselves accidentally positioned in a corner near the Castle where passage had been roped off.

This actually gave us a great view, although the level of the crowd meant most of our pictures are partially blocked by heads distorting the lights.  The parade was fantastic, and our pictures are only a pale comparison.  Below are what we could capture.

Just before the street lights were put out to enhance viewing the parade.  The crowd itself was mind-boggling, and with our scooters we were literally trapped.  It’s a good thing we were happy about our position.

Several floats as they approached …. the lumpy black areas in front are just heads of those in front of us.

The final part of the parade was an eagle holding the end of the American Flag which rippled on and on in a very long streamer … maybe 30 to 50 feet …while fireworks flashed overhead …

…. with the message at front:  TO HONOR AMERICA.  It was very impressive as it passed slowly down the path.  Some of us were moved to tears.    elecDSC_4900

Our camera just could not do justice to this display — it’s one of those things you really just had to be there.
