The fire-breathing Maleficent Dragon float in the Festival of Fantasy Parade caught fire in the Magic Kingdom today, May 11. The parade promptly ended and the fire was put out. Fortunately, it is believed that no cast members or guests were injured.
Here was the Maleficent Dragon float after the fire was put out.
It’s all kicking off at the Magic Kingdom! The parade went past us and the mechanical Dragon was all good until it burst into flames! Parade closed and the fire was promptly put out. The dragon was not looking the best after as you can see. pic.twitter.com/6DsWL1NK5M

Stephen "Steve" Porter started going to the parks with his family in 1996. Since then he hasn't looked back! Steve was a cast member participating in the Disney College Program in 2013. Most recently he graduated from Penn State University!
