Witnesses on scene said it happened during the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade, and large plumes of black smoke and flames could be seen coming from the dragon's head, WFTV reports.
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
