BURN THE VILLAGE: Disney Flies A Fire-Breathing Dragon Over Beast's Castle To Celebrate New Park Expansion

December 10, 2012


To celebrate the New Fantasyland expansion at Disney World, the park created and flew a giant fire-breathing dragon over Beast's castle (part of the new attractions) in a one-night only special performance. REALITY SPOILER: The dragon is actually a manned parawing (pictures after the jump of the dragon flying during the day) but they hide its parachute by using a spotlight to only light the dragon hanging below. Man, flying that thing would be a cool job. Especially if you could do fire-breathing raids down Main Street. "They would never allow that." But if you could.

Hit the jump for two shots of the dragon without its skin during the day, and a video of the thing flying over the castle at night.



Thanks to robmc, who agrees its all fun and games until a REAL fire-breathing dragon shows up and starts setting people on fire. It's like the boy who cried wolf.

    I guess its time to prepare my dragonborn armor...

  • And in case someone was thinking on partaking in some good ole dragon-slayin'...

    Thats the Beasts Castle, not Cinderella Castle, and they did it to celebrate the opening of the New Fantasyland forest.

  • Pretty awesome concept, it would also be great if they had Darth Vader ride that dragon. :D

    Ermahgerd New Post... Dragons? Cool. Imagine if it has a mechanical issue and falls towards the ground while spewing flames. People would panic like crazy... that'd be great on camera...
