Ho! Ho! Noooooooo…. Santa fell out of his sleigh during Saturday’s  “A Christmas Fantasy” afternoon parade at the Disneyland Resort. We can see the whole thing from the video we found by Mollie Gomez on Facebook who was live in the park recording the parade.

Santa wasn’t harmed at all as he can be seen wearing a safety harness as he dangled in from the collapsed sleigh. He kept his composure and was jolly the entire time. Like the champ he is, Santa got released from the harness and walked the rest of the parade waving and interacting with guests. This was a fluke accident and we are sure that between Disney magic and Santa’s mojo, everything will be back to normal very soon. Santa wouldn’t let anything get in his way from delivering all those gifts around the world on Christmas night.

The last parade incident was at Walt Disney World when Maleficent lost her temper and had a fire malfunction. I personally love her and I am very happy she returned! It is almost enough to make me book a trip back down to WDW!  Earlier this year Mal had a bad day and got a little steamed… Who could say why? Maybe a dancer got in her way. Maybe the music was too loud and taking away from her impressive display. Maybe one of those annoying bloggers was taking too many shots of her and she just wasn’t having it. Whatever the reason, she got worked up and blew her top. None of that matters now because she is back!  We aren’t sure if she will still be in all of her fire-breathing glory, but we are hopeful. You can see the video here of the original incident.
