When you visit a Disney Park, there are a number of things you come to expect. Many people expect great food, incredible rides, and some truly stunning parades and shows. Over the years, Disney has worked incredibly hard to create truly magical experiences, and it shows. One thing you may not expect to see is a fire. I don’t mean shows that incorporate fires into their design. I am talking about an accidental fire that begins to burn and will only get worse if something is not done quickly.
However, Guests visiting Disneyland Paris recently experienced one such fire. Disneyland Paris is currently celebrating its 30th Anniversary, and one of the fun things that Guests can see is a special parade featuring some of their favorite characters. During the parade, some of the characters dance on a float that rolls down the street. It appears that there are flowers and plants all around the float. The dance routine performed by the characters includes some small pyrotechnics. It was those pyrotechnics that ignited a fire on the float.
From a video shared by TikToker In Pixie I Trust (@inpixieitrust) the flowers caught fire and smoke quickly started to rise. As the fire grows, a man can be seen walking off camera and then coming back into the frame. As the fire grows, the characters keep dancing. We don’t know if they were able to see what was happening. A woman and teen girl see the fire and talk to the man. It then looks like the teen girl runs off camera to find help. The man then takes action and jumps up to put the fire out himself by stomping on it.
You can watch the incredible video below.
A fire broke out while we were watching the Dream & Shine Brighter Parade @disneylandparis last Saturday…. Luckily one guest reacted very quickly ! 😳 #disneyland #dlp #disneylandparade #disneylandparis30thanniversary #dlp30 #fyp #disneycontent #disneyparks #contentcreator #disney #disneyparis #disneylandparis30 #disneylandparis30ans #disneyshows #disneylandnews #disneyfan #shockedmoment @DisneylandNewsToday
The man was thankfully able to extinguish the flames. A Cast Member then comes up and makes sure that everything is out, and the show goes on. After putting out the fire, the man simply went back into the crowd and acted like he didn’t just save the day.
This is not the first fire that has broken out at a Disney Park in the past couple of months. Another Guest visiting the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World saw a fire breakout at the Journey of the Little Mermaid attraction. It was speculated that fireworks may have started the blaze. Luckily, no serious damage was done, and the attraction was up and running the next day.
