PHOTOS: Steampunk Maleficent dragon to star in new Festival of Fantasy parade at Walt Disney World

in Disney, Entertainment, Magic Kingdom, Theme Parks, Walt Disney World

Walt Disney World has unveiled the most unique aspect of the upcoming Festival of Fantasy parade coming to the Magic Kingdom: a Steampunk dragon. It’s none other than Maleficent, standing 26 feet high and reaching 35 feet long, soon to be rolling down Main Street USA.

Based on the dragon form of the villain from “Sleeping Beauty,” this Maleficent float was designed with the aid of Michael Curry, who previously worked on Epcot’s extinct “Tapestry of Nations” parade.

Gaze into its steamy green eyes:

Here is a closer look at some of the details on this massive new metallic float:

The Festival of Fantasy Parade will debut some time this spring.

    This could very well be the coolest thing I have every seen, Disney and steam punk make such an amazing combo.

  5. Johnny!

    Will this float have all the villains from all different movies or just the characters of sleeping beauty? But overall this new parade float is awesome and I can’t wait to see it in person!!!!!

    I know this will be AMAZING – I would love to see it, but it will be a while before I get to WDW again.

    I am not a fan of the Steampunk style at all, but THIS rocks my socks!!! SPECTACULAR!

    Love the combo of Disney and steampunk, but this is sorta ripped off of the show Raveleijn at the (awesome) fairy tale theme park Efteling in the Netherlands (google it)
