Overall Rating: 4 Stars
Disneyland hasn't had a night-time parade since it closed the Main Street Electrical Parade and followed that up with the ill-conceived "Light Magic". Paint the Night, a NEW electrical parade, pays tribute to the original spectacular and will blow your eyes and mind with magic, music, dancing and much more!
Atmosphere: 4 Stars
To top it off, the soundtrack for Paint the Night not only features "When Can I See You Again?" from Wreck-It Ralph intertwined with "Baroque Hoedown" from the Main Street Electrical Parade, but it was mixed and performed by Owl City. You can't get much more legit than that!
Entertainment Quality: 4 Stars
The floats are stunning and many of the light effects leave you in awe. Most of the time when I watch Paint the Night I'm a little upset that it's over because I enjoy watching each float, performer, and other interactive elements march past. It has been a long time since a Disneyland parade impressed me so I would definitely say this show is a must-see!
Time Commitment: 3 Stars
Update (5 November 2016) - Now that Paint the Night is operating only on select nights, you may find yourself needing to find a spot to view the show slightly earlier as crowds demand. I sill would not wait over an hour, though. There'll be some viewing place around that doesn't require hours of standing around.
See which nights during the holiday season Paint the Night will be performed!
