Hey all! In honor of the return of the Main Street Electrical Parade to Disneyland Laura and I wanted to share some memories and photos from the Disney vacation her and her family took in 1996. That year was the farewell season of the parade as it ended its first run at Disneyland on November 25. Laura still has the sweet VHS tape from the parade that they picked up as a souvenir from the trip. There are so many good photos so we picked the best bunch to create maximum nostalgia. Acid wash and fanny packs abound, so we hope you find something you enjoy!

This seemed like such a great trip didn’t it? I am so glad that we found these and could share them. Unfortunately, we don’t have any pictures of MSEP, but next week in Part 2 we will hopefully share something even better!

Thanks for reading!
