Guests are encouraged to come out to enjoy the “thousands of sparkling lights and electro-synthemagnetic musical sounds” one more time before the parade's final performance officially takes place at the park on Sunday, October 9, 2016.
Well, that's incredibly lame. I thought the return of the Main Street electrical parade to magic kingdom was supposed to be a permanent thing due to popular demand. The only thing that sets Magic Kingdom apart from other Orlando parks is the overwhelmingly campy and lively atmosphere that enhances the otherwise dull and generic theming and rides; taking away one of the big components of that with no replacement will legitimately affect attendance (or at least make a lot of people leave earlier). If this is a permanent change then Disney clearly does not understand its own audience, which would be ironic since they've invested so much in studying customers' spending habits and activity while inside the resort.
