During the Festival of Fantasy Parade at Disney's Magic Kingdom, the Maleficent Dragon float, which travels the streets of the park, actually caught fire, sending flames and smoke into the sky.

Typically, the giant dragon float from the movie "Sleeping Beauty" shoots smoke from its nostrils and fire from its mouth in a great pyrotechnic display. In a surreal scene, parade music blared from speakers as onlookers stared in amazement at the flaming monster.

In the usual performance of the parade, the dragon's head shoots a blast of fire from its nose, timed to the parade's score. Perhaps thinking the fire was part of the show, people milled about, seemingly not alarmed by the flames.

They added that operations remained normal throughout the rest of the park.


Guests immediately took to the internet posting pictures and videos of the fire.

Cast members shooed parade attendees away from the malfunctioning float, and a Disney employee extinguished the flames.

Tampa resident Taylor Standridge was also at the park Friday when the fire occurred.

Here's the procession with the fire-breathing dragon functioning properly.
