ORLANDO (CBSMiami) – It’s an end of an era at the Walt Disney World Resort’s Magic Kingdom.

The park’s iconic Main Street Electrical Parade, a nightly procession featuring glowing, spinning floats set to a 1960s tune called “Baroque Hoedown,” ended its run Sunday night, according to Disney’s website.

The long running parade will head to the Disneyland Resort in California for a limited encore engagement.

Floats in the parade feature characters from Disney’s animated films including “Alice In Wonderland” and “Cinderella.” During the parade, Tinker Bell lights the way with a wave of her wand and orchestrates half a million shimmering lights synchronized to a memorable soundtrack.

The parade has dazzled visitors since it first debuted at the Florida resort in 1977. The parade was on an eight-year hiatus beginning in 1991 at Disney World.

The current version began rolling down Main Street every night in 2010. Disney officials have not said what will replace it.

Several other spin offs of the popular “Electrical Parade” ran or continue to run at Disney parks around the world.
