Dragon float catches fire during Disney World parade

A dragon float from the movie Maleficent caught fire at Disney World's Magic Kingdom Friday afternoon

A fire-breathing dragon at Walt Disney World in the USA went up in flames during a parade at the theme park. An animatronic dragon, which represents "Sleeping Beauty" villain Maleficent, at Disney World caught fire during the daily Festival of Fantasy parade on Friday afternoon, May 11.

According to "Disney Dan", the fire was extinguished quickly and cast members confirmed that "everyone is fine". "The dragon was not looking the best after as you can see", one visitor wrote on Twitter.

Parkgoers were watching the Festival of Fantasy Parade in Magic Kingdom when something went wrong.

Sapp said the staff did a great job keeping everyone safe and, to his knowledge, no one was injured.

In operation since 2014, the 52-foot long, 25-foot tall Steampunk-inspired dragon famously breaths fire as it strolls through the streets of Magic Kingdom Park. But a YouTube video shows the dragon's head first catch fire and then start smoking and then really start blazing with no special effects involved.

The dragon is usually operated by a park employee, stationed near the base of the neck.
