Question Main Street Electrical Parade ~ just this summer?

Hi, Does anyone happen to know how long the Main Street Electrical Parade is going to be in Disney World?

Do we know if it will be in Disney World for the summer 2011 too?

I thought I read something about the summer festivities ending mid August and I didn't know if that included the Main Street Electrical parade. If so, I will be pretty bummed about not being able to see it late August or summer 2011. Can't seem to find the info anywhere.

THANKS for any info!

Scheduled to end Aug. 14, 2010.

BUT-

There is speculation that either or both of the MK's the

Summer Nightastic shows will continue for up to two additional years.

There is also speculation that either or both of the MK's the Summer Nightastic shows will end as scheduled and that Wishes and SpectroMagic will return in the Fall of 2010.

Only time will tell.
Disney likely won't make any formal new announcement until sometime during the Summer,
when they see how the Summer shows are being received by guests.

Thank you very much for the reply, Robo. At least there is hope. The Electrical Parade holds such sentimental value for me and I'm sure many others. I would love to be able to see it again.

I do hope that they extend the stay just a bit. We aren't arriving until Aug 15, and I would so love for my kids to see the Main Street Electric Parade!

I hope the parade stays until our trip in November. I remember going to WDW as a child and how much we loved to see the Main Street Electrical Parade.

I would LOVE it if they kept the Main Street Electrical Parade! That's one of the best things Disney ever had. I'd love for my DD to see it when we go in Sept....fingers crossed !!

We will know here long before your trip if they will be keeping MSEP or reverting to Spectro.
(Same for the fireworks.)

Stay tuned.
