The "Main Street Electrical Parade" first appeared at Disneyland in Anaheim, California, in 1972, but hasn't been at Walt Disney World Resort since 2001. Its return to the Magic Kingdom will be highlighted by 23 floats, more than half a million sparkling lights, 80 performers, and synthesizer music. Tinker Bell will be weaving her magic from a balloon float, which generates more than 25,000 points of light. Pinocchio and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs also join in on the festivities with floats of their own, and you're certain to see classic characters like Mickey Mouse, Goofy, and Alice in Wonderland.

Also at the Magic Kingdom, you can watch as fairies and pirates weave a tale in the sky with vivid bursts of color and light in the "Fireworks Spectacular." With theme music from Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl and characters from Cinderella, the show is sure to surprise you.

In Disney's Hollywood Studios, the "Twilight Zone Tower of Terror" has entered a new dimension, and has added enhancements to its special effects.

Meanwhile, Epcot will be hosting "Sounds Like Summer," where tribute bands will rock you back in time each evening through July. Acts include a tribute to the Bee Gees, Janet Jackson, The Rolling Stones, and Bon Jovi.

One-day one-park tickets cost $79 for adults and $68 for kids.
