I’m so sad!
The Festival of Fantasy is my favorite parade and the Maleficent dragon float is why! But today amidst rolling black smoke, the dragon caught on fire!
During a parade at Walt Disney World, the head of The Maleficent dragon, a mechanical float in the Festival of Fantasy parade, caught on fire. https://t.co/FMCFw3Q6Ba pic.twitter.com/ARyV87tlc6

According to Martin MJ on Twitter the float caught on fire during the parade. The dragon is not looking so good now.
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

The parade was shut down, and everyone was fine. No word on what will happen to the dragon float, but I hope they fix it and continue with this parade. It really is something to see!
You can see what it was in this video. Around the 2:45 mark
