Hi all,

As many of you know I am a professor of Art and Graphic Design at a local University. I have a colleague who is a digital photography professor and in a passing conversation told me that in the late 1970's she worked for some local Orlando area newspapers and that she often ended up in Walt Disney World doing photo shoots for stories.

She went digging in the archives and found some nice shots of the Main Street Electrical Parade via 1978.

Thought you might like to see.

"Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls...." Cue the funky keyboards...

These just make me want to go see the parade right now! Awesome photos. Glad to see the parade hasn't changed so much after all these years!

Thanks a lot. Benita (the photographer) said that she has some more photos from the late 70's and early 80's of various press events. I hope she can find them and I can post them. I think she has some stuff from the opening of Epcot.

Great pictures! The Main Street Electrical Parade remains one of my favorite parades at Walt Disney World. I hope the future brings an updated version of the parade :)

I just found the original 1966 track from electronic music pioneer Jean Jacques Perrey. If you back to the original post I added it at the bottom. It is interesting to compare the original to the MSEP version.
