The Main Street Electrical Parade is back at Disneyland.
Disney's original nighttime parade has returned for another limited engagement, starting this weekend and playing at Disneyland nightly through the end of next month. To celebrate the parade's return, Disneyland also rolled out a new collection of souvenirs and snacks.
In addition to the parade-themed krispie treat, marshmallow "caterpillar" wand, and cake pops, Fantasia ice cream has returned to the Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor for the parade's run. A modified spumoni of cherry, pistachio, and banana ice creams, my serving came in the Fantasia Waffle Bowl Sundae [$7.99], which comes with caramel sauce, chocolate candies, whipped cream, and a cherry.
The caramel sauce starts melting the rest of the sundae pretty much immediately, precluding a truly glamorous photograph. There's more then enough to share here, and the ice cream probably could have stood on its own without the accompaniments. The cherry and pistachio flavors delight, and it's always fun to tear into one of the waffle bowls that you can watch Disney's cast members making behind the window next to the Gibson Girl's mobile order pick-up counter.
But enough with the diversions. As the sun sets, it's time for the main event of the evening.
Yeah, it's pretty much the same parade as when we last saw it at Disneyland, two years ago. But judging from the cheers of the crowd when "Baroque Hoedown" came over the park's loudspeakers once again, fans still love it. So Disneyland keeps bringing it back.
The Main Street Electrical Parade runs through September 30.Tweet
