Main Street Trolley Parade - Magic Kingdom Welcome

As part of the Main Street U.S.A. Parades at the Magic Kingdom, this is one of a kind and most guests don't even heard about that.

The parade with dancers started on February, 2003 and is performed periodically during the day. I think this is a wonderful way to start your day at the Magic Kingdom.

In this video you'll see first the main street at dusk (my favorite time) and after a minute of video, the Welcome Medley from the Trolley Parade record during 3 diferent days  :)

You can find this track in the WDW Happiest Celebration on Earth CD Disk 1 [Expanded Version] and the video comes with subtitles in english!

Unfortunately I didn't add this in this video because of COPYRIGHT ISSUES but I have some amazing footages of my father dancing among then back in 2007.

The song called "Walkin' Right Down the Middle of Main Street, U.S.A." have credits to Stu Nunnery. Here is what he said on "I wrote words and music to 'Main Street, U.S.A.' in 1978 while writing for a 'jingle house' in New York. Disney bought the song and there was supposed to be a rollout of the song in 1980 when Disneyland was to celebrate its 25th anniversary (1955). The song did not appear publicly until 1985 when Disneyland celebrated its 30th anniversary, and it was sung on a TV special by none other than Marie Osmond and a cast of characters. Since then, the song remains a parade theme at the parks, and is sung by the barbershop a capella groups walking down Main Street at the parks."

Enjoy :)
