$20,000 Main Street Electrical Parade Drum Table Brings the Magic Home from Walt Disney World

If you’re longing for merchandise that stirs up nostalgia for the Main Street Electrical Parade, we might have just the piece. A custom, handmade Main Street Electrical Parade Drum Table crafted by Artist Mark Seppala is available now at the Art of Disney at Disney Springs and it could be yours — if you have an eye-watering amount of money to spare.

Main Street Electrical Parade Drum Table – $20,000

This extravagant drum table features a glass top and wooden base that protect from its main feature. A vintage 1920s Leedy Concert Drum features original artwork from Mark Seppala that is sure to have Walt Disney World guests feeling nostalgic.

A closer look shows the Blue Fairy, Whirly Bugs, Dopey’s Mine Train, Alice in Wonderland, Elliot from Pete’s Dragon, and Casey Junior among a menagerie of Disney characters that made for the most popular floats within the Main Street Electrical Parade at Magic Kingdom.

Harkening back to the Drum float pulled by Casey Junior, the Main Street Electrical Parade logo is featured in a circle at the center. Both “Magic Kingdom” and “Electric Light Parade” surround the inner circle on top and bottom, despite the parade having never been called the “Electric Light Parade” in any context.

The bass drum itself appears to be in its original condition, featuring a natural wood drum and metal tension rods. The lighter wooden hoops on top and bottom also appear to be original and feature the Leedy and Co. metal badge.

Artist Mark Seppala has added a badge of his own to the front of the drum. The tag explains that the drum table is made from a “vintage 1920’s Leedy Concert Drum” and that Seppala’s original art was inspired by Disneyland’s 50th Anniversary of the Main Street Electrical Parade. Of course, it’s written as the “Electric Light Parade” on the plaque, incorrectly.

The iconic figures of the Main Street Electrical Parade are intricately painted onto the drumhead. Each has then been stoned with gems that give a flashy, almost lit appearance to the floats of Disney Parades past.

The characters are connected in a round web of paint-splattered color on the outer rim of the drumhead.

If you’d love to bring a piece of the Main Street Electrical Parade home, but can’t afford the hefty $20,000 drum table’s price tag, smaller drum rims featuring a similar design are also available at Art of Disney for $800.

The Main Street Electrical Parade debuted at Disneyland in 1972 and ran every summer until 1996. It appeared again in limited engagements in 2017, 2019, and 2022. The parade was moved to Disney California Adventure between 2001 and 2010 and known as Disney’s Electrical Parade. The Walt Disney World rendition ran between 1977 and 1991, again during the Millennium Celebration, and most recently from 2010 to 2016 at the Magic Kingdom.

But that’s not all! Tokyo Disneyland got its own version from 1985 to 1995, and has run a modernized 21st century version called Tokyo Disneyland Electrical Parade: DreamLights since 2001, with periodic updates every few years to switch out characters and films or update floats. Disneyland Paris also ran the Main Street Electrical Parade from 1992 until 2003.
