Rumor: Main Street Electrical Parade to close on September 10Published: August 8, 2016 / Last Updated: August 11, 2016 / By: Arvid Bux
Earlier today an anonymous source shared that the Entertainment Cast over at Walt Disney World has been informed that the Main Street Electrical Parade will close on September 10th 2016.
This rumor does raise some questions; Will the Main Street Electrical Parade be retired for good, or will it move to a different location. And what will replace the Main Street Electrical Parade which has been running since June 5th 2010. The parade closed twice before; September 14th 1991 and April 1st 2001.
UPDATE: Main Street Electrical Parade closes on October 9th and moves to Disneyland early 2017; read more

The Paint the Night Parade, a modern spin-off of the Main Street Electrical Parade will close at September 5th. Whether we will see this parade move to the Magic Kingdom in Florida is not certain at the moment. But I expect that we will hear more about this soon.

When that closes then they usually bring back Spectromagic Parade. I go to Disney frequently and also from past experiences have seen this happen
Considering the fact that Disney sold Limited Edition Spectromagic pins that supposedly each contained a fragment from an actual float, I think that’s unlikely here.
Sprctromagic is gone unfortunately. Parts were used for Festival of Fantasy. Also this DEP rumor is a bold face lie. Halloween parties start soon and that means DEP won’t be every night.
Hopefully the bring Paint the Night from California here.
I can confirm that this is not true at all. Aaron Wallace is guilible . DEP isn’t going anywhere that soon!
