Disneyland Main Street Electrical Parade - at home!

The husband and I are both huge fans of the Disneyland Main Street Electrical Parade. Because of the husband's interest, we own the set of Electrical Parade floats that came out as part of the Walt Disney Classics Collection quite a number of years ago. We have also been collecting the pieces in Robert Olszewski's Disneyland Main Street U.S.A. miniatures collection, which is basically a miniature reproduction of Main Street and various attractions in Disneyland, since the first release in December 2002 of Sleeping Beauty Castle.

On Saturday, March 29, the first set of five floats from the Electrical Parade in the collection were released. The pieces are apparently modeled similar to the Classics Collection pieces. You can definitely see the resemblance between the two.

The Olszewski floats change color, as do the Classics Collection floats. They really do look remarkable together. Here's a video that shows the two sets of floats performing together (7.5 MB). You'll want to turn the sound up for this.

Yeah, I know, we're geeks.
