The clock is ticking for two beloved nighttime spectaculars at the Disneyland Resort, and they will be closing before Fanatics” gather for the D23 Expo.
On Thursday, Disney Parks announced that the Disneyland Forever Fireworks and the revived “Main Street Electrical Parade would have their final performance on September 1.
The news was shared on Twitter, saying:
“Two limited-time nighttime spectaculars at @Disneyland–‘Disneyland Forever’ fireworks and the ‘Main street Electrical Parade’–will “glow” away September 1, 2022, so don’t miss your chance to see them now!”

Debuting for the 60th Anniversary Celebration, “Disneyland Forever” fireworks made their triumphant return to the skies over Sleeping Beauty Castle earlier this year after covid-inspired restrictions called for a more limited situation. Boasting a 50-year history, “Main Street Electrical Parade” made its return to the thoroughfares of Fantasyland and Main Street, U.S.A. as well this summer, featuring a brand new grand finale with classic and contemporary characters from Disney and Pixar Animated movies from The Jungle Book to Encanto.
It should be mentioned that the Disneyland Resort’s two other nighttime shows, “Fantasmic!” in Disneyland Park and “World of Color” at Disney California Adventure Park, will continue their normal show schedules.
While it is unclear exactly why “Disneyland Forever” and the “Electrical Parade” is ending with the summer, it is most likely due to the fact that Disney needs to make way for the Halloween-themed spectaculars set to begin as early as September 2. Disneyland’s Halloween Screams fireworks show will take to the skies every night from September 2 through October 31.
Reminder: Halloween Screams returns on Sept. 2.

Disney Fanatics planning on visiting the Disneyland Resort Theme Parks while attending the D23 Expo at the Anaheim Convention Center should be aware that they will miss the closing dates for both of the shows as those festivities do not begin until September 9.
