SpectroMagic was a Nighttime Parade presented only at The Magic Kingdom at the Walt Disney World Resort.

The Parade is a number one fan favorite, with its music score, amazing effects, and legendary Characters.

On July 1, 2013 Disney officials have confirmed that all of the SpectroMagic Units have been destroyed due to poor storage conditions, henceforth the parade has been permanently retired. Some small elements from the parade have been saved for possible future use. For Example the Sebastian Audio-Animatronic from "The Little Mermaid Unit" is now being used in the Magic Kingdom's new daytime parade, Festival of Fantasy Parade.

The Story[edit]

The parade is about Mickey Mouse, along with the SpectroMagic Spectromen, who together create the power of SpectroMagic. After the first part of the Parade with Mickey Mouse and the SpectroMagic Spectromen, the parade then takes you though five different themes:

  1. "The Worlds of Music from the Silly Symphonies"
  2. "The Wonder of Sleeping Beauty's Garden"
  3. "The Fantasy of The Little Mermaids Ocean"
  4. "The Imagination of Fantasia"
  5. "And The World of Dreams in a Grand Disney Cavalcade"

History[edit]

Original Run: October 1, 1991 – May 21, 1999 | Secondary Run: April 2, 2001 – June 5, 2010

The Parade lineup consists of 24 Units.

Throughout the 17 Years of running nightly at the Magic Kingdom, the SpectroMagic Parade has had various combinations of lineups. These range from different characters in different locations throughout the parade, to whole Units being in a different order.
