May 23, 1997 – The Light Magic Nighttime Show Begins its Run at Disneyland
“…to dream and to believe that those dreams can come true.”
On May 23, 1997, the nighttime street show Light Magic began its run in Disneyland, replacing the Main Street Electrical Parade. Much like its predecessor, Light Magic was a show presented on four floats, each 80 feet long and 11 feet wide, and featured lights, special effects, and, of course, Disney characters. The show began between the “it’s a small world” attraction and the Matterhorn, and made its way down Main Street. It ended its run on September 1, 1997.
