SpectroMagic was a nighttime parade that was presented at the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World.
The Parade became a fan favorite with its music score, amazing effects and legendary characters.
On July 1st, 2013, Disney officials confirmed that all of the SpectroMagic units were 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 Festival of Fantasy Parade.
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
