The “spectacular festival pageant of nighttime magic and imagination,” the Main Street Electrical Parade, will be ending its historic run at the Magic Kingdom and returning to Disneyland Park in California for a special, limited engagement.
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. 

After a delightful (and long) six-year run, the Magic Kingdom Park will bid the Main Street Electrical Parade a fond farewell and look forward to the memories it will create for Disneyland Guests next year. 

“Paint the Night” parade will continue nightly performances, just before “Disneyland Forever” fireworks, through September 5 as part of the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration. This popular parade will return on select nights during the holiday season later this year.

Here you are some frequently asked questions about this change:

1. When will the parade be returning to Disneyland?
This limited engagement will begin early next year. Additional information will be shared at a later date.

2. Will another parade replace the Main Street Electrical Parade at the Walt Disney World Resort?
At this time, there are no plans to bring “Paint the Night” to Walt Disney World Resort. That being said, the resort will continue to offer compelling nighttime entertainment, and constantly adds new offerings.

3. What about Guests who may have already booked the Tony’s Town Square lunch package?
Guests who have booked the lunch package will be contacted very soon.

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.
