The Casey Junior float hauling the parade’s title drum, a fixture of the Major Avenue Electrical Parade considering that 1972, was replaced by an all-new LED version with an current look. Fortunately we have been capable to visit and get a seem at this modify.
The float officially debuted July 1, exactly 20 years and a single month soon after the original parade initially rolled down the route on June 1, 2001.
For reference, this is how the initial float appeared.

The new float bears a robust resemblance to the unique, while it’s considerably much more colourful by character of its LED design. The confront on Casey Junior is the identical as right before, but the whistle on the entrance now has a a lot more distinguished and goofy experience.
The facet bar on the big wheel is now an real piece that moves up and down, fairly than a light-weight result as on the previous float. Goofy nevertheless steers, as he often has.
Mickey and Minnie take their places atop the drum even now. The new drum helps make considerably more outstanding use of yellow than prior to but still is generally purple. The lighting sample looking at “Tokyo Disneyland Electrical Parade” no for a longer time flashes on a person letter at a time, instead usually being lit with additional emphasis on one word at a time. Considerably less space is allocated to the letters as they now have a swirly purple sample on the best and bottom, identical to the Major Street Electrical Parade drum.
As very well, the float will now occasionally transform to nearly all-gold, before shimmering back again into various hues.
