June 1, 2001 – The Tokyo Disneyland Electrical Parade Dreamlights Resumes its Run
“A nighttime parade full of lights.”
On June 1, 2001, the Tokyo Disneyland Electrical Parade Dreamlights resumed its run after its original closing on June 21, 1995, which was replaced at the time by Disney’s Fantillusion. The parade is Tokyo Disneyland’s version of the Main Street Electrical Parade, the popular nighttime parade that first started in Disneyland on June 17, 1972. The parade begins near the Haunted Mansion and travels past Cinderella’s Castle; it features several beloved Disney characters, including the Genie, Tinkerbell, and, of course, Mickey Mouse. Several albums of music from the parade have been released in Japan, which usually includes the sound effects and character voices from the show. On rainy nights when this parade is cancelled, a special version called “Nightfall Glow” runs, with Minnie Mouse and Daisy Duck as the hosts of this mini parade. This mini parade starts in Toontown and runs through Westernland and Fantasyland.
