SpectroMagic was a Nighttime Parade presented in The Magic Kingdom at the Walt Disney World Resort. It was introduced in 1991 as part of the park's 20th anniversary celebrations, replacing the Main Street Electrical Parade.
In 2013, following reports that the SpectroMagic floats had been destroyed, Disney confirmed that the parade had been permanently retired.
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:
- "The Worlds of Music from the Silly Symphonies"
- "The Wonder of Sleeping Beauty's Garden"
- "The Fantasy of The Little Mermaids Ocean"
- "The Imagination of Fantasia"
- "And The World of Dreams in a Grand Disney Cavalcade"
- Original Run: October 1, 1991 – May 21, 1999
- Secondary Run: April 2, 2001 – June 5, 2010
- Opening Announcement: "Welcome to the splendor, the spectacle, the sparkling sensation, where the romance, the comedy, and the thrill of Disney fantasies come to electric life. And now, the Magic Kingdom proudly presents, in a million points of musical light, the magic worlds of Disney...in SpectroMagic!"
- Closing Announcement: "So long! From Jiminy Cricket... in SpectroMagic!"
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.
The soundtrack was released as its own album, rather than being featured on the Walt Disney World Official Album.
