Where Is Walt Disney World’s Nighttime Entertainment?

As we drop news of several incredible nighttime entertainment experiences headed to Disneyland Resort, we’re starting to wonder… but when is Walt Disney World Resort going to step up its nighttime entertainment offerings?

In celebration of Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary, Disney launched “Disney Enchantment” at Magic Kingdom Park along with “Harmonious” at EPCOT. The two new nighttime spectaculars are great but seem to be leaving Disney fans wanting more.

With Disney west coast news of the Main Street Electrical Parade getting a new look, Fantasmic!’s return date announced, and more, the east coaster Disney is still waiting.

While we’re thankful for two new nighttime spectaculars at Magic Kingdom and EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios has yet to breathe nighttime entertainment back into its Park. Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular is still listed as “Temporarily Unavailable.” While Disney has noted Fantasmic! at Disney’s Hollywood Studios will return, we’re starting to wonder when?

Walt Disney World is preparing for the return of the Festival of Fantasy daytime parade. But, more noticeable is the plea from Disney fans for some form of evening/nighttime parade to return to Magic Kingdom.

With Disneyland’s Main Street Electrical Parade getting an incredible new facelift, we’re ready to see something… ANYTHING… stroll down Main Street, U.S.A. at Magic Kingdom to light up the faces of Disney Park-goers.

Fans are taking to social media to share their waiting woes. @GottaGoOrlando shared an image of the Pirates of the Caribbean skeleton scene with, “They were waiting on Disney announcing an evening parade for Walt Disney World.”

“We Don’t Talk About Bruno” from Encanto (2021) is a perfect reference as @SuperWeenieHtJr notes, “Walt Disney World is Bruno” when Disneyland’s evening parade was announced.

@Schmoofy tweets, “Disneyland: gets a nighttime parade back. Disney World: can’t even open all our restaurants.”

Well, these tweets aren’t wrong. We too are doing our best to wait patiently for nighttime entertainment at Walt Disney World Resort to once again wow us.

Let’s take a look back at Main Street Electrical Parade at Magic Kingdom, shall we? Check out Disney’s video below:

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
