Disney has confirmed that the Main Street Electrical Parade and Summer Nightastic! Fireworks Spectacular will debut on June 5th at the Magic Kingdom for what is being called a Passholder preview:
Clear your calendar for Saturday, June 5, 2010, and get over to the Magic Kingdom® Park for an advance viewing of the return of perhaps the most beloved and adored Disney parade in history! The Main Street Electrical Parade is back as part of Summer Nightastic! Check it out at 9 and 11 p.m., or both!
Plus! That same night, Passholders* can check out the new Summer Nightastic! Fireworks Spectacular at 10 p.m., with special light effect viewing glasses, provided free to who? Passholders, that’s who. Pick up your free glasses between 4 and 8 p.m. at the Rose Garden entrance near Tomorrowland® and enjoy the show.
To learn more about the special advance viewing of Summer Nightastic! for Passholders, go to disneyworld.com/passholder.
*Weekday Select and Epcot® After 4pm Passholders are welcome but will require admission to Magic Kingdom Park.
While listed as a passholder preview, the park is open to the general public during these performances. The only real perks for Passholders are that they are being informed about these preview performances (it is still advertised as Spectromagic and Wishes! performing on the DisneyWorld.com calendar) and are provided the strange glasses usually distributed at the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Change the scheme, Alter the mood! Electrify the boys and girls if you would be so kind!
^^Seriously, I think it's silly to directly reference brass ring carousels when the carousel you're referring to isn't even one. That's what annoys me, as I feel the world could use a few more ring carousels.
However, I don't think that's a likely scenario in the least. The brass, steel or plastic objects cost a lot to replace, and I'm sure there are liability issues--can you really trust everybody to throw the objects so they won't hit anyone? etc. You could use plastic objects like Riverfront does, but still.
^Apart from my rant, I like the idea of a backstory. It especially makes sense for Disney of course.

In terms of said expansion.... much of the new segments seem squarely aimed at the female demographic. Most, if not all, excluding maybe the Winnie the Pooh and Dumbo stuff, is part of the Princess/Fairy demographic; is this just a way to have maybe something for the little "dudes" as well?
