premier on June 17, 1972, it turned out to be an "absolute disaster." So many things went wrong. For example, the canopy over the Court Dancers for Cinderella fell apart and broke into many pieces on the street and one of the floats went out of control and hit one of the buildings on Main Street.
Tokyo Disneyland used a Christmas version of the "Baroque Hoedown" underliner by Bruce Healey.
Tokyo Disneyland was the first park to have the fireflies in the Alice in Wonderland unit make sounds like the snails and turtles do, then Walt Disney World incorporated the sounds. Disneyland never incorporated these sounds.
On Casey Jr., obviously because it is the banner float, there are always banners or insignias unique to its location that can be see on the cab of the engine and again on the flags on the back of the drum. The Main Street Electrical Parade has performed in all but one Magic Kingdom worldwide and Cailfornia Adventure. At Disneyland (CA) the sign for Disneyland was always the trademark "D." Every other park, interestingly enough, has always had a different variation of the Mickey Mouse ears. At Walt Disney World, the sign on the cab and flags for the park were Mickey Mouse ears with longitudinal and latitudinal lines going across them. At Disneyland Paris, the sign on the cab and flags for the park were a pair of Mickey Mouse ears that were completely filled in. At Tokyo Disneyland, the sign on the cab and flags for the park were a pair of Mickey Mouse ears in which the three circles that make up the ears were drawn completely closed, and were completely blank on the inside. In other words, there were no lights covering the inside of the circles, so you could see right through them. In California Adventure, the sign on the cab and flags for the park were identical to Tokyo Disneyland except for one difference, the three circles that make up the ears were NOT drawn completely closed, but rather they were drawn where the two ears connected to the head.
Thanks to the magic of You Tube, all forms of the Main Street Electrical Parade, Electrical Water Pageant, and the other electric light spin offs from around the world are now accessible like never before. Just go to www.youtube.com, type in Electrical Parade in the search box, and you will find a treasure trove of footage that continues to grow all the time. Almost anything about the Electrical Parade can be seen there.
