Behind the Scenes: Disneyland Resort Prepares to Bring Main Street Electrical Parade Magic to 108th Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade

A long-running Disney Parks tradition is about to float right into a long-running Southern California tradition as Disneyland Resort joins the 108th Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade this year with a specially decorated Main Street Electrical Parade-inspired boat! This floating spectacle of light and sound will appear nightly during the beloved holiday tradition, Dec. 14-18 in Newport Harbor, Calif. On the opening night of the popular boat parade, Wednesday, Dec. 14, Mickey Mouse himself will even serve as Grand Marshal, accompanied by Disney Ambassador Allie Kawamoto.

In the video below, we take you behind the scenes of the boat decoration with Principal Art Director Bradley Kaye to show you how his talented team is bringing the Main Street Electrical Parade to life on the water!

Main Street Electrical Parade returns to Disneyland park for a limited engagement beginning Jan. 20.
