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.

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 15 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
