The Main Street Electrical Parade passes by Cinderella Castle at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom (Gene Duncan/Disney)Disney’s Main Street Electrical Parade marches through the Magic Kingdom this summer, twinkling with approximately half a million lights. One of the original floats, the “Title Drum Unit” near the beginning of the parade, was created using an actual bass drum, one of the world’s largest in 1972. This drum had been used in Disneyland parades in the 1960s, when Mickey Mouse used to beat it using large drumsticks. The beloved parade returns to Magic Kingdom in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. to headline “Summer Nightastic!” June 6 through Aug. 14, 2010. Photo by Gene Duncan, courtesy of Disney.
