Main Street Electrical Parade Long Exposure

Walt Disney World

Magic Kingdom

Main Street Electrical Parade


I first did long exposure parade photos in 2009, then of SpectroMagic from the Main Street, USA Train Station. Since then, I've tried multiple variations on the concept, with this being a recent favorite. Long exposure plus Cinderella Castle plus reflection from the water equals a winner in my book.


Lots of other photos from this night/trip posted on my blog: DisneyTouristBlog
