Disneyland is bringing back all its nighttime spectaculars, almost a year after reopening following a yearlong COVID pandemic closure. Though it’s been putting on the Mickey’s Mix Magic fireworks show for a few months now, Disneyland on Tuesday said that the Disneyland Forever fireworks will return on April 22, along with the beloved Main Street Electrical Parade.

World of Color will also return to California Adventure on April 22, while Fantasmic will return to Disneyland on May 28.

Disney Parks has also unveiled a seven-segment “grand finale” float for the 50th anniversary of the Main Street Electrical Parade. Concept art for the brightly lit neon display includes Disney and Pixar characters like Mirabel and Antonio from Encanto, as well as Jasmine and Aladdin, Mowgli, Raya, Anna and Elsa, Pocahontas, Mulan, Moana, Tiana, Miguel, Hercules, Merida and the Blue Fairy.

The characters resemble the childlike dolls from Disneyland’s It’s a Small World ride, and the float’s design takes inspiration from Mary Blair’s iconic Small World art. The parade will now finish with a stylized version of Sleeping Beauty Castle.

For now Disneyland Forever fireworks will run only on weekends, while Mickey’s Mix Magic will be shown on Mondays through Thursdays until the end of spring. Disneyland Forever will become a nightly show in summer.
