It’s always a surprising and eye-catching moment during Magic Kingdom’s Festival of Fantasy Parade when the Maleficent Dragon float breathes actual fire during the popular parade.
But today, disaster struck when the Float itself caught fire during the performance!
We are glad to say that it’s being reported that the driver of the float escaped safely and that no Cast Members or guests were harmed.
There’s no word yet on what caused the blaze, but reports are speculating that there was some sort of fuel leak. Disney spokespeople are noting they’re still trying to figure out exactly what went wrong.
