Nighttime Shows Return to Disneyland Resort in Time for Summer

California’s Disneyland Resort reopened just over a year ago after a 13-month closure because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The resort now marks that anniversary with the return of its “nighttime spectaculars,” including theme park classics like the Main Street Electrical Parade.

According to the U.S. Travel Association’s Monthly Travel Data Report, roughly six in 10 Americans are planning at least one summer trip in 2022. Even with higher gas prices, 35 percent of those planning vacations expect to travel more this summer than in 2021.

Main Street Electrical Parade

Disneyland’s Main Street is once again lit up with colorful floats, dancing characters, and Disney-style electro-synth music during its classic parade. The 2022 return features a new finale that also celebrates the parade’s 50th anniversary with a theme of togetherness.

Disney Live Entertainment Production Manager Michael Duncan said that the Main Street Electrical Parade’s new finale float features the most significant change of the returning nighttime shows.

Disneyland Forever Fireworks

Fireworks are again igniting the Disneyland sky with the Disneyland Forever show that includes themed music, projections, and a lot of pyrotechnics.

Guests can watch the show from Main Street, U.S.A., by Sleeping Beauty Castle, by It’s a Small World, around Rivers of America, and near the Matterhorn for distinctly unique experiences.

This particular show debuted in 2015 for the theme park’s 60th Anniversary Diamond Celebration. It tells a visual fireworks-filled tale with themes including an Anaheim orange grove, as well as Disney and Pixar stories.
