Maleficent Dragon catches fire during Festival of Fantasy Parade

In an unfortunate accident today, the Maleficent Dragon float caught fire during the Festival of Fantasy parade at the Magic Kingdom.

Normally, the dragon is supposed to shoot fire out of its mouth during timed increments during the parade. As you can see, that was not the case today and the whole head caught fire.

No injuries were reported and the flames were quickly extinguished.

No word from Disney whether or not we will see the dragon and/or the fire return. We will keep you posted.
