A dragon float at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom burst into flames Friday during the park’s Festival of Fantasy parade, Disney officials confirmed to the Orlando Sentinel.
Video posted on social media shows fire and smoke billowing from the dragon’s head as it moves back and forth. Onlookers snap photos as chunks of the dragon float – representing Maleficent from “Sleeping Beauty” – appear to fall on the ground.
The fire was extinguished promptly and no injuries were reported, according to the Sentinel.
