Dragon float in Disney parade catches fire

According to The Orlando Sentinel, the attraction is Maleficent's dragon and part of the Magic Kingdom's daily Festival of Fantasy parade located in Liberty Square.

Friday, many saw the dragon Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty catch fire.

Cast members shooed parade attendees away from the malfunctioning float, and a Disney employee extinguished the flames. There were no injuries to employees or visitors, it was reported.

"Celebrate the spirit of Disney as Magic Kingdom park comes alive with music and dance during a tribute to the tales of Fantasyland", Disney's Magic Kingdom website description reads.


It's unclear what went wrong at this time. The cause of the fire that damaged the float is under investigation.

Witnesses on scene said it happened during the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade, and large plumes of black smoke and flames could be seen coming from the dragon's head, WFTV reports.

Sapp said the staff did a great job keeping everyone safe and, to his knowledge, no one was injured.
