Rumors began circulating last week that Paint the Night, the iconic nighttime Disney Parks parade, would be coming to Walt Disney World Resort. Well, it seems as though those rumors will not pan out to be true as there was absolutely no mention of a nighttime parade coming to Walt Disney World during the Parks panel at Destination D23 yesterday.

Disney Park and Experiences and Products Chairman Josh D’Amaro made a special appearance at the Destination D23 2021 event at Disney’s Contemporary Resort yesterday as he revealed exciting Parks news — including the return of Festival of Fantasy, Fantasmic!, opening dates for Avengers Campus in Disneyland Paris and Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind in EPCOT, and more.

However, some were hoping to news of Paint the Night coming to Walt Disney World, but, unfortunately, there was absolutely no mention of it, or of any nighttime parades for Walt Disney World for that matter — and fans are not happy.

And Twitter user robbybottoms begged Disney Park and Experiences and Products Chairman Josh D’Amaro to bring Paint the Night to Disney World:

Please, Josh D’Amaro! Let Walt Disney World have Paint the Night!

At this time, there hasn’t been any announcements surrounding a nighttime parade coming to Walt Disney World. Over at Disneyland, however, the iconic Main Street Electrical Parade will return to Disneyland Park in the near future.
