Today In Disney History ~ June 11th

Today in Disney’s History June 11th


The Main Street Electrical Parade was created by Bob Jani and Ron Mizike. The parade has had three “runs” at Walt Disney World. The original run was from 6/11/77-9/14/91 and was then sent to what was then EuroDisneyland. The parade returned for it’s second run on 5/28/99 and ran until 4/1/01 using the original Disneyland floats and was then sent back to Disneyland. The third and current run of the parade began on 6/6/10 and  has floats from the original Disneyland version and new floats and elements from the Disneyland version that ran at California Adventure.

If you love the Electrical Parade, don’t forget to take advantage of the new Disney Store nighttime parade shirts we told you about Monday!

Part of the goal Michele has for The Main Street Mouse is not only to keep members informed, but to create somewhat of a Disney Family by relating to others through personal experiences and opinions. Also, Michele is making it a priority to share stories of inspiration and hope to other Disney Fans in an effort to share the Magic and hopefully make a difference in the lives of others. ~ I enjoy writing personal perspective blogs, doing TMSM Meet Ups for our readers, and keeping the constant interaction going with others, sharing the Disney Magic to people when they can’t be at their Happy Place.
