Maleficent Returning to Festival of Fantasy Parade

Maleficent Returning to Festival of Fantasy Parade

Festival of Fantasy is one of the best daytime parades Disney has ever made, and for much of its history, it included what may be the most impressive float Disney has ever made, the Maleficent dragon.

This was a steampunk-inspired version of the famous character that actually breathed fire throughout the Magic Kingdom. But last year the fire malfunctioned and caused the entire float to burst into flames in the middle of Frontierland.

It has been missing ever since.

But this morning Disney Parks on Twitter confirmed it would return today to the parade, along with its trademark fire effect.


Here's the dragon in her prime less than two weeks before the incident.
