When you see the new Festival of Fantasy Parade, which debuts soon at Walt Disney World, you'll be impressed with how it melds classical influences with a modern touch. To learn more about how that was done, click the video accompanying this article to hear from costumer Jansen DuPuis.

In addition to the design process, DuPuis talks about the way in which Disney pays attention to even the smallest details. You might never notice some of them as you stand on the Main Street USA curb and watch the massive floats and troops of performers go by, but they're there if you pay close attention. From the materials used to create the costume to the decorative elements, every detail was planned meticulously to culminate in the ultimate parade experience.

If you'd like to hear more about the planning process, go to this article to hear from Larry Apel, Creative Costuming Area Manager, and costumer Glen Howard. Kris Bunnell talks about the costumes in this article.

The parade starts soon at the Magic Kingdom, where it will run every day.
