Paint the Night arrived at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, CA on May 22, 2015. It ended its first run at the Disneyland Resort on September 5, 2016, before returning for the holiday season later in the year. After which, the Main Street Electrical Parade made a limited-time magic run at the Disneyland Resort.

On Friday, April 13, Paint the Night will be returning to the Disneyland Resort as a part of Pixar Fest. This time, the parade will be lighting up the night at Disney California Adventure.
