Spectro Magic Parade returning in 2012???!


I thought I was hearing some rumors about the spectro magic parade returning some time in 2012. For some reason I don't like the Main Street Electrical Parade as much, but I like them both! I'm planning a trip for November 2012 so I'm trying to see if anybody else has heard anything about this. Lemme know

I grew up with MSEP at DL, so it holds a special place in my heart. I really hope it is still at MK at the end of the year. (sorry). I haven't heard about Spectro coming back any time soon.

I hope SpectroMagic is coming back soon. I do like both parades, but Spectro is my favorite.

MSEP does nothing for me,I remember seeing it when I was a kid and I was excited to see it again after they brought it back,but the truth is it's just not like Spectro which I can see over and over again.After seeing MSEP again I knew it's not a must see every time.

I totally agree...Spectro makes me smile...just thinking about it makes me smile. MSEP...not so much...I was pretty disappointed in it when I saw it in June and am not making any effort to see it on my upcoming trip next month. I CANNOT wait til Spectro comes back!!!!!

Of the two parades I prefer Spectro. They're both magical, but the music in the electrical Parade can get a bit annoying after a while.

Spectro makes me cringe...I find it spooky. Those unexplained masks and weird music. Just not my thing. I much prefer MSEP. Love the Baroque Hoedown.

Please bring Spectro back. I just enjoy it so much more.MSEP music gives me a headache by the time it's over it's like the same 10 notes over and over

I've seen Spectro. I don't think I've ever seen MSEP--unless I just don't remember it. I looked it up on YouTube and it doesn't look or sound familiar. I prefer the music from Spectro MUCH MORE.

If Spectro returns to MK...
look for that to happen as early as this May.

If not then, it might happen in August.

If not then, maybe in Jan. 2013.

Spectro is an awesome parade . . however, my childhood memories are of MSEP, which we were fortunate enough to see last summer.

I guess, it really doesn't matter a lot one way or the other to me. I would like the opportunity to see MSEP again this summer, but if Spectro is back, I won't be disappointed.

I grew up on MSEP, so it is my favorite. I have seen Spectro many times, but I am not a fan.
I have seen MSEP several times since it came back, so if it leaves before I get back to see it again, it's no big deal.
