Maleficent Returns to Magic Kingdom Just in Time for the 60th Anniversary of Sleeping Beauty

There has been a lot of big news lately about new attractions, shows, and lands coming to the Disney Parks around the world, but among these recently announced and exciting additions, news that a fan favorite would be returning to Magic Kingdom was also released. After accidentally catching fire on May 11, 2018 and being absent from the Festival of Fantasy Parade for nearly nine months, the incredible fire-breathing float made its much anticipated return on January 25, 2019.

The Maleficent dragon is an impressive float that is a favorite among many Disney fans and photographers alike, and its return to the Festival of Fantasy Parade in Magic Kingdom is just in time for the 60th Anniversary of Disney’s animated classic Sleeping Beautywhich was released on January 29, 1959.

Next time you’re in Walt Disney World, make sure you grab a spot on Main Street, USA or in Frontierland to see Maleficent head down the Festival of Fantasy Parade route once again!
