Maleficent Dragon Catches Fire At Walt Disney World

Magic Kingdom’s daily parade, known as Festival of Fantasy Parade, was a little more exciting than usual today! Sadly, during the parade, the very large Maleficent Dragon float caught fire. If you’ve ever seen this float perform, you can’t miss the moment the dragon blows fire. Well, things didn’t go as planned today and the dragon’s head caught fire. The best news is no reports of injuries have been made. Disney has so many safety measures in place that the fire was put out fairly quickly and the guests standing near were cleared by Cast Members and Security. See the video below:

We will have to wait to see if Magic Kingdom has a second Maleficent dragon or if this float will be missing from the daily parade due to the repairs.
