Maleficent Returns to Walt Disney World’s Festival of Fantasy Parade

We are so excited for this amazing news from Walt Disney World.  Disney Parks Blog shared the cover of “Villains Weekly” where we learned that Maleficent is finally returning to Magic Kingdom Park.  Her float will be rejoining the Festival of Fantasy Parade at the park within Walt Disney World.  The float was pulled from the parade months ago after it caught on fire during one of the parade performances.  There were many different guest videos shared across the internet of one of most popular floats catching fire. We were all sad when the float was removed from the parade, but it looks like she is back in action!


Check out this fun “magazine” cover below:

While she still has her same Steampunk style and signature wicked smile, the Maleficent dragon will be sporting a refreshed look, enhanced with new features designed to keep her in check while on show.

Check out this awesome video:

Who else can’t wait to check her out in person at the parade?

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
