Disneyland has released a commercial promoting the return of the Main Street Electrical Parade with a nostalgic flair and it contains an astounding number of references to attractions from Disneyland’s past. The spot is exceedingly well done and I think will genuinely create positive buzz on the west coast for what may or may not be the parade’s final run at the place it originated.

Here’s the spot:

And now let’s break it down scene-by-scene and identify some of the many references and easter eggs. Click on any of the photos to make it larger:

It appears that a variety of rental props were also included to fill the spaces but aren’t direct references. There are non-Disney looking toy soldiers about and some large and small sea horse statues and a popcorn wagon that is painted very much like the ones used on Main Street, but it may not be authentic. If you see anything else, please comment below.
