If you haven’t had a chance to catch a performance of the Main Street Electrical Parade inside Disneyland, you’ll want to make sure you do before the end of its limited-time run on Sunday, June 18. It’s absolutely wonderful and so very nostalgic. For more information about all of the exciting things going on at Disneyland Resort, please visit their site here.
