Last Night of ElecTronica!

Hi Everyone!  This past weekend marked ElecTronica's last nights at California Adventure.  My husband and I are big fans and have had many great times there with family and friends.  We liked it so much we even had a touch of it at our wedding and celebrated there on our mini-moon!  We went both last Saturday and Sunday to get our final hours on the Grid.  My husband took some awesome photos and video and he even wrote up this post!

The Portal Shuts Down...
Long lines and huge crowds mark end of DCA night-time party.
On Sunday, April 15th, the ElecTronica portal closed for the last time after a lengthy stay at Disney California Adventure park. The night-time dance party will eventually be replaced by the new "Mad T Party," a similar Alice in Wonderland themed dance party on June 15th.

The last night of ElecTronica featured a performance by Laser Man and two DJs. The final evening also featured long lines for Glowjitos and Digitinis at the End of the Line Club and the bar by the Animation Building.



The crowds didn't seem to mind how busy the party was as they danced (I even saw some crowd surfing) through the night. One bad byproduct of the large crowds was the effect they had on the cutoff time for the bars. Both bar areas had to cut off the lines a full hour prior to the 10pm end time. Traditionally last call and the line cut off was only half an hour prior to the park closing. Also, on Sunday and Saturday the two bars had trouble keeping Glowjitos in stock (our favorite!).



The last few minutes came and went quickly and the end of the night was well staged. The DJs played one more song for the last time and then a countdown clock ticked off the last ten seconds until they "terminated" the ElecTronica program for the last time. After the countdown the lights went out and the party was over.



We also have a video from the night before this last one that we will share in a later post!  It features our favorite Eckert's last speech!  

We are definitely going to miss ElecTronica!  We had so many fun evenings there!  What was your favorite part of ElecTronica?

  1. Aww! I'm so glad you guys got to go for the final evenings and that you managed to enjoy it on several occasions. I really liked playing air hockey inside Flynn's Arcade and I'll always cherish getting my dance on with my lovely DL Bride friends there too! :)

    I hope the Mad T Party has the same energy and fun-factor of ElecTRONica.

    P.S. The CM with the silver wig, was my little sister's favorite "Aladdin" from the show in the Hyperion Theater. We wish he'd go back because the other ones pale in comparison. We just saw him in a Subway commercial too! lol

    P.S.S. Thanks for taking such great video of the final moments and sharing it!:)

    1. Thanks Hope! We were happy to have so many fun times there! :)
      I didn't know that the CM was Aladdin! There are two CMs I've seen that play the part of Eckert (the one with the silver wig). Is the one who was Aladdin the one in the video? I wonder if he'll go back! That'd be cool!
      I'm so happy my hubby took that video and those pics (I was busy dancing the whole time, haha ;) ). He did a great job! :)

  2. I'm so glad I got to see this when I was there last October. That's a great video, and it brought up good memories. My favorite part was watching everyone in my family play games in Flynn's Arcade:).
