Festival of Fantasy Dragon

Festival of Fantasy Dragon

When the Festival of Fantasy Parade debuted at the Magic Kingdom it featured one float that stood out from all the others. The Maleficent dragon float showed a steampunk-inspired version of the climactic scene from Sleeping Beauty. Not only that, it actually breathed fire at several points along the parade root.

That fire would be its downfall.

Unfortunately, the parade float eventually caught fire in the middle of Frontierland right in front of guests. It was put out, but not until large amounts of damage were done to the float.

It has been almost half a year and the float has not made a return to the park, although it still lives on in Disneyland Paris.

I invite you to take a look at the dragon in all its glory during its final month before the fire.
