'Summer Nightastic', beginning on 6 June 2010 for the summer season until 14 August 2010, will include the return of the Main Street Electrical Parade, a huge daily firework show 'Summer Nightastic Fireworks Spectacular' at the Magic Kingdom, and a new drop profile and effects for the Tower of Terror.

'Summer Nightastic Fireworks Spectacular' 
The incredibly popular and well received firework show 'Magic, Music and Mayhem' from 'Disney's Pirate and Princess Party' will return to the Magic Kingdom during regular park hours and will include the perimeter fireworks. It will be renamed to 'Summer Nightastic! Fireworks Spectacular', and will have new introductory dialog. The actual show however, will be identical to 'Magic, Music, Mayhem' as it was shown in the second and final season of 'Disney's Pirate and Princess Party'. This means that it will have the small cut to the Cinderella portion of the show that was made following season 1, but will be otherwise unchanged. All 8 of the perimeter launch locations will be in place, running from Splash Mountain around to to Space Mountain.  The show will replace Wishes for the summer period for around 70 nights, beginning June 6 2010 and ending on August 14 2010.

Official Press Release

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (Feb. 10, 2010) – The “Main Street Electrical Parade” lights up the streets of Magic Kingdom and headlines a season of after-dark excitement coming to Walt Disney World Resort.
“After the sun goes down, our Walt Disney World parks will light up the night with ‘Summer Nightastic!’, ” announced Meg Crofton, president of Walt Disney World Resort, at a media event Wednesday.

Disney magic will shine and shimmer in a whole new light. Here’s a look around:
  • With floats and characters appearing for the first time at Walt Disney World Resort, Disney’s “Main Street Electrical Parade” returns with its joyous sights and sounds. Direct from Disneyland and marking its first engagement in Florida since 2001, the cherished parade will be led by Tinker Bell waving from the basket of a magical balloon aboard a new float. Pinocchio and Snow White join the parade this summer, aboard bright new floats. Disney’s “Main Street Electrical Parade” is set for its summer-long nighttime premiere in early June at Magic Kingdom.
  • The Twilight Zone™ Tower of Terror welcomes “drop-ins” this summer with even more pulse-racing surprises. New lighting effects and the addition of a new drop sequence, created especially for “Summer Nightastic!”, will bring unexpected frights to guests who step into that infamous service elevator. If they dare.
  • What could be more summery than fireworks on a star-studded night? Magic Kingdom will treat guests to a special summer fireworks spectacular. The night sky will explode in vivid colors and brilliant visual effects as whimsical music fills the air.
  • Other fun! The return of the Sounds Like Summer concert series to Epcot and extended evening hours at Disney’s Animal Kingdom several times a week add up to summer fun as only Disney can do – at all four Walt Disney World theme parks.
