Disneys Summer Nightastic 2010
Disney is always way ahead with its planning and this year 2010 is no exception. Starting in early June and continuing until mid August Disney “Summer Nightastic”plans several new evening features to make visiting the Parks even more exciting.
This year will see the return of the very popular Main Street Electrical Parade. This is the first time since 2001 that the parade has been back to Florida and it promises to light up the streets of Magic Kingdom for after-dark excitement
The Parade comes direct from the Disneyland Resort and will be led by Tinker Bell waving from the basket of a magical balloon aboard a new float. Pinocchio and Snow White join the parade this summer aboard fantastic new floats. Check on line before you go to Magic Kingdom for that night’s parade time or if you forget you can do so as soon as you enter the park. A good place to watch this parade is from the top or steps of the station as you enter the Park it is on your right. It is also easy to leave the Park from here without battling the crowds on your way out.
Also be sure to check the time of the evening Firework displays at Magic Kingdom. There are many good vantage places to watch these. We usually go and have a burger making the most of the fantastic salad bar at the entrance to Tommorowland about half an hour before the fireworks start. The Summer Nightastic Fireworks Spectacular, ” is not to be missed (we usually stand on the bridge in front of the castle to watch the fireworks) as it fills the night sky with wonderful colours and brilliant visual effects while lovely music drifts through the air.
Over at Hollywood Studios (this was formerly known as MGM) the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror welcomes “drop-ins” this summer with even more heart stopping surprises. New lighting effects created especially for “Summer Nightastic” will bring unexpected frights to guests who step into that infamous service elevator. I am not sure I will be brave enough for this!
Nightastic also has music: at Hollywood Studios in the courtyard of Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith “Rock N’ Glow Dance Party will have guests wanting to “trip the light fantastic” to summer sounds being spun by DJs. ”
Over at Epcot, the Sounds Like Summer Concert Series is back once more between June 12 and July 31 with bands playing musical tributes to artists from summers gone by. It is great to listen to these before finding a handy location to watch the fireworks.
Any evening you visit a Disney Park this summer I am sure you will enjoy it.
