Last month the Maleficent dragon caught fire during Fantasmic at Disneyland. Afterwards, Disney temporarily suspended similar fire effects at all Disney parks for a while. Disney’s statement read, “We are temporarily suspending fire effects similar to those used at Disneyland Park’s Fantasmic! at select shows and entertainment experiences globally out of an abundance of caution following the Fantasmic! prop fire at Disneyland Park.”

One of the suspended fire effects was the fire the Maleficent dragon breathes during the parade at Magic Kingdom. Now, the effect has returned! According to Cast Members, the effect is still suspended in some areas of the park due to the proximity of flammable materials.

Performances of Fantasmic at Disneyland are still paused and there’s no set date for the show’s return.
