California 2009 Recap Part 4: Disney's Electrical Parade Enhanced – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

Here are some photos from the recently updated Electrical Parade at Disney’s California Adventure! The parade now has nearly half a million lights. This summer marks the 30th anniversary of the parade! If you’d like to see how the Main Street Electrical Parade used to look, you can find my “Jeff Lange Remembers: The Main Street Electrical Parade” DVD for sale below the photos.

The Tinker Bell float is new, with more than 25,000 points of light (below left and right).
