A Walt Disney World parade was more fiery than planned Friday afternoon.

Onlookers couldn't believe their eyes when a float of the "Sleeping Beauty" villain, Maleficent, shockingly malfunctioned and caught fire during the Festival of Fantasy parade on May 11.

During today's performance, the entire head of the dragon caught on fire in the Liberty Square section of the parade, but was fully extinguished.

While fire is supposed to come out of a dragon's mouth, it didn't take long for park-goers to realize that the intense flames were not a part of the presentation.

Firefighters responded, but the flames were out by the time they arrived.

The spokeswoman said the company was still in the process of figuring out what went wrong. Later, parts of its head piece appear to flake off and fall to the street. She wrote on Facebook that the dragon's head was on fire.

The dragon is usually operated by a park employee, stationed near the base of the neck.

The area was immediately cleared, and there were no injuries to guests or Cast Members in the area.

The daily 12-minute parade has been a fixture at the theme park for the past four years.
