The headline says it all really; the Main Street Electrical Parade at the Magic Kingdom is on a break from January 20 through February 10, 2012.  The parade will resume on February 11.  This outage also occurs during the period when Fantasmic! at Disney’s Hollywood Studios will not be showing (January 9-February 12).

The Touring Plans Crowd Calendar will be updated shortly and there may be some minor changes as a result of this development.  Sign up for our Crowd Tracker if you want to know about all the changes.


  1. What a bummer! We are going to be there from January 26-29th and were already bummed that we will have to wait until our May trip to see Fantasmic!.

  2. So will there be no parades at all or will something fill the spot during this time. To me for this short time seems to work on floats and costumes??

  3. The word on the street is there will be work on the street. is reporting that the parade is dark due to work on walkways. I don’t know for sure since they are still doing the 3pm parade.

    It also seems that Main St Electrical Parade will be back on February 11th, rather than seeing a return of Spectromagic.

  4. So the list grows:BTMRR, F!, MSEP, Dumbo, FLE not yet opened, likely Snow, probably Splash (because of cold), TL. And if there will be street work in Frontierland and BTMRR being worked on, and Liberty Belle offline, should we expect to see TSI added to this list, too? Wow, the value of going in “value” season is really diminishing.

  5. This really stinks! The list of closures is getting longer and longer! I am so dissapointed in this! DH and I were planning on seeing MSEP twice during our upcoming trip in January since we missed it in September due to MNSSHP.

  6. ergh! so disappointed. the electrical parade was one of my fondest memories from visiting disney as a kid. was so looking forward to sharing this with my own kids. we will be there jan 28th – feb 4th.

  7. OMG … panic .. will it be back by late sept / early oct. I heard a speculation that they are adding new light displays controlled by tink. Has anyone else heard this? This soundtrack brings tears to my eyes everytime I hear it (flashbacks to my 13th birthday). I am bringing my dad back to see it. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE tell me it will be back on track in october. *crossing fingers* ~Holli
