Last seen doing its impression of a barbecue on the parade route at the Magic Kingdom, the gigantic steampunk-inspired Maleficent dragon float is returning today to the Festival of Fantasy Parade.
Also making their return to the parade are Prince Phillip; the Fairies Flora, Fauna and Merryweather; and the mischievous “Ravens” who fly around Maleficent just waiting to do her bidding.
According to Disney, while the theme will remain Steampunk, the new Maleficent dragon will have an updated look with new safety feature designed to keep her from burning to a crisp again.
And yes, she’ll still have the fire!
Talk about a grand entrance.
The float has been missing since the on-stage fire incident last May. No one was injured, but the dramatic moment was caught on video:
Who is making plans to head to the Magic Kingdom today for a glimpse of Maleficent as she makes her magnificent return in the 3pm parade?
