Alright, I have 65 more days until I’m taking off on a dream vacation to Walt Disney World.  So I’m going to try and post the 50 things I am most excited for during this trip.  It may be a ride, or just something that I enjoy about Disney or this trip in particular, but I’ll tell you the object and why I’m excited or enjoy it.  Some explanations will be longer than others, but I hope I can make it through them all before I head to the Sunshine State. 

 These posts will all be based off a list and are in no particular order.  So, without further adu: 

 Day 65: Spectro Magic 

 I never used to enjoy the parades at Disney.  I either found they got in my way while I was trying to sprint across the park or they were a good distraction to other guests while I took advantage of temporary shorter lines.  

Then I was hired as a Character Performer, and my park experience changed.  After being in the parades and mingling with the guests on such an intense level, it’s hard not to be drawn to anything with those big furry characters in it.  

I’m looking forward to Spectro Magic for many reasons.  It’s a nighttime parade, which is awesome.  It has very Disney-esque music along with a lot of very cool characters all covered in lights.  I think I love Spectro Magic the most though, because that was the parade I performed in the most when I was a cast member, in many various parts.  It’s one of the few things that hasn’t changed since I worked there, a very rare thing indeed. 

UPDATE: As posted here from the Disney Parks blog, the Main Street Electrical Parade will be extended indefinitely.  I’m not sure what this means for my Spectro viewing as they may have both parades running on different nights.  I guess I’ll find out when I get there.
