The effort and talent Disney puts into its grand daytime parades is truly unrivalled.  For The Wonderful World Of Disney Parade, six major parade units were built to accompany the six retained from the previous parade, creating a fantastic mix of characters and a real "golden greats" collection of Disney stars and floats.  This, with the hundreds of brand new costumes and over 140 dancers and crew, added up to create one of the most definitive Disney parade spectacles ever during its late 90s heyday.

The parade introduced some of the most memorable Disney parade floats in history, seen here first in concept art and later in concept models, allowing the designers to see exactly what guests would see, from a miniaturised angle.
