A fire erupted Saturday night during Disneyland’s Fantasmic fireworks and light show, forcing throngs of stunned fans to evacuate the area.
Although the flames erupting from a 45-foot-tall animatronic dragon were dramatic, the Anaheim Fire Department said no injuries were reported, according to KABC .
“It was a big giant fireball. Then they began pushing people out,” said Ryan Laux, 28, a Los Angeles video producer and an annual season passholder who was watching the show near Disneyland’s Tom Sawyer Island when the fire broke out.
Laux estimated that about 1,000 park guests had packed the area to watch the spectacular, which normally features digital flames, colored fountains and pyrotechnics. Images and videos shared on social media showed actual flames shooting up over the park.

Witnesses told The Times that spectators were dumbfounded.
The signature show takes place twice nightly, with the second performance beginning at 10:30 p.m. in front of the island. Most of the show takes place in the mist of the Rivers of America, and the audience watches from the banks around New Orleans Square and Frontierland.

Review: Out with the old, in with the new: Disneyland’s ‘Fantasmic’ drops old favorites for new stars
Disneyland faced a daunting challenge with the remake of the 25-year-old “Fantasmic” nighttime spectacular: How do you update a beloved modern classic without alienating its die-hard fans?
July 25, 2017
The show was coming to its climax, in which Mickey Mouse fights a fire-breathing dragon named Maleficent. But things went awry when the fire breath engulfed the dragon’s head, then spread to the rest of the body, Laux said.
“At one point there was a fireball,” he said. “There was a bit of debris that fell from the prop.”
“It was shocking,” he added. “The crowd was in a standstill. People are packed in like sardines.”
“It happened out of nowhere,” said Melissa Giles, 30, who had traveled from Alberta, Canada, to spend four days at the theme park. “We thought it was part of the show. Within seconds it went up in flames.”

Shortly after the fire, park employees turned on a water feature that was part of the show. The crowd erupted in cheers, Laux said.
Fantasmic debuted at Disneyland in 1992 and got a makeover in 2017.

Dragon at Disneyland bursts into flames, no injuries reported
The incident occurred during the live performance of Fantasmic! Saturday night.
Elaine Gilmer has seen the performance of "Fantasmic!" at Disneyland in Anaheim, California, over 100 times, but Saturday evening's show was one to remember.
"The dragon's head started to glow, and I see fire and kind of smoke coming out," she said with hesitation. "I was like, 'Oh ... they added some new stuff because that didn't didn't happen like that before.'"
However, Gilmer's daughter Elyssa began to realize that the fire from the animatronic dragon's mouth appeared to spread to the body of the 45-foot creature, which is styled after the storybook villain of Sleeping Beauty, Maleficent.
"We saw some small explosions coming out of the head, and then, all of a sudden, the whole dragon was just engulfed, and then, all of a sudden, the worker started coming around escorting everybody out for safety," Elaine said.
Videos of the incident quickly circulated online, showing the massive dragon wholly engulfed in flames -- an uncharacteristically chaotic ending for the show that usually climaxes with Mickey Mouse casting a spell to defeat Maleficent.
All cast members were evacuated from Tom Sawyer Island, where the show is staged, due to the fire, according to a Disneyland official. The Anaheim Fire Department reported no injuries related to the incident, according to ABC News affiliate KABC.

"The cause of the fire remains under investigation at this time," wrote the official.
Dark plumes of smoke emanated from the dragon and impacted nearby attractions, prompting Disneyland to clear some guests from the area.
"I would love to say that I was cool for the whole thing, but obviously there comes a little moment where it's worrisome because it starts to spread a lot," said Brenda Coutiño, who was visiting Disneyland from Tucson, Arizona. "I thought it was gonna cut into the buildings, and since there's so much connected to that little island -- I was just a little scared that it would spread out."
Park guests reported that the incident was shocking initially, but the response, including moving some guests from impacted regions, went relatively smoothly.
Videos of the incident show guests watching and recording the show's unplanned conclusion while a loudspeaker informs them that the "performance cannot continue due to unforeseen circumstances."
The live show uses water and fire special effects to tell the story of Mickey Mouse as the Sorcerer's Apprentice, interspersed with clips from classic Disney movies.
Disneyland describes the show as "Daring heroes and epic villains do battle on a grand scale in an incredible nighttime show -- starring Mickey Mouse."
The fire cut off the show as it neared its conclusion. Recently refurbished, the show typically concludes with fireworks and visit from a steamboat full of dancing Disney characters and fireworks.

"The dragon is usually the highlight -- that's what most people look forward to," Elyssa Gilmer said. "We always love that part, so it's exciting to watch; it's kind of sad knowing that [the fire] happened."
Disney has not released a timeline for reopening "Fantasmic!"

A 45-foot-tall animatronic dragon caught fire and forced parkgoers to flee a popular show at Disneyland on Saturday night.
The blaze started during the theme park’s “Fantasmic!” show at the Tom Sawyer Island attraction.
Multiple videos posted on social media captured the Maleficent Dragon’s head engulfed in flames mid-performance.
A thick black smoke plume was seen rising from the location across the 100-acre theme park.
The show was abruptly stopped as guests and Disneyland cast members were rushed away from the scene as emergency personnel extinguished the fire, which was seen spreading down the body of the giant dragon.
“Due to unforeseen circumstances, this performance of “Fantasmic!” cannot continue,” an announcement told park attendees . “We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.”
The Anaheim Fire Department responded to the blaze and reported no injuries, according to ABC 7 .
The area around Frontierland was cordoned off, with the remainder of the park kept open, a witness told the outlet.
The extent of the damage and cause of the fire was not immediately known.
“Fantasmic!” is a live 27-minute show incorporating colorful water and fireworks at the Rivers of America in the park.

The popular attraction opened in 1992.
Tom Sawyer Island has been a centerpiece at theme parks since 1956 and is based on Mark Twain’s book “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer,” and allows parkgoers to travel in the footsteps and adventures of America’s early settlers in the 1840s.

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Spectators at Disneyland's popular "Fantasmic!" show got a shock this weekend when the feature's fire-breathing animatronic dragon suddenly burst into flames.
No injuries were reported following the blaze Saturday night at the Southern California theme park, the Anaheim Fire Department said.
Ryan Laux, a frequent Disneyland visitor, said fire has always been a part of the "Fantasmic!" presentation. But he said he knew something had gone awry when flames didn't come from where they usually do.
Main Character of the Day
He visited disneyland 2,995 days in a row. it's now a guinness world record.
"The head started going on fire instead of the fire projecting out," said Laux, who lives in Los Angeles and captured the blaze on video.
The show was stopped almost immediately, "and then right after that, the dragon started catching fire and the whole body was up in flames," he told The Associated Press on Sunday.
The show takes place twice nightly near the park's famous Tom Sawyer Island. The climax features Mickey Mouse battling a giant dragon named Maleficent.
Laux said Mickey vanished from the stage as soon as the dragon's head became engulfed in flames.
The extent of the damage wasn't immediately known.

Fantasmic! Allegedly Experienced Fire Issues Weeks Before Dragon Burned
in Disneyland Resort , Walt Disney World
Fantasmic! in Disney’s Hollywood Studios allegedly experienced pyrotechnical issues weeks before the tragic fire that engulfed the Maleficent dragon at Disneyland Park’s version of the show.
After a Guest inquired about a sudden pause during Sunday night’s Fantasmic! at Walt Disney World Resort, another Disney Parks fan revealed that a similar incident occurred weeks ago, before the fire at Disneyland Resort.
“It was stopped for about 15 minutes and then restarted when we were there two weeks ago because some of the flames in the water came on too early,” Reddit user u/marleythebeagle alleged.
Walt Disney World has not commented on further issues with Fantasmic!, but similar fire effects are suspended globally as the company investigates the fire at Disneyland.
More on Fantasmic!
Fantasmic! is currently closed for maintenance at Walt Disney World Resort and has not returned to Disneyland Resort since April’s devastating fire. “Be there as the forces of good and evil battle it out in Mickey’s dream during this extravagant open-air nighttime musical,” reads the official Disney show description .
“Featuring stunning effects, thrilling stunts, dazzling pyrotechnics and rousing music, this larger-than-life show is painted on a grand canvas of dancing water and light. Overflowing with silly and suspenseful surprises, it will leave your entire family smiling from ear-to-ear! Fast asleep, Mickey Mouse dreams that he is a mighty sorcerer’s apprentice with the power to control water, color and magic. The Disney Villains—including Maleficent in the form of a towering, 40-foot-tall dragon—turn Mickey’s dream into a nightmare, but don’t underestimate the power of Mickey’s imagination!”
Enjoy a stunning spectacular featuring characters from Moana (2016), Frozen 2 (2019), Mulan (1998), Aladdin (1992), Pocahontas (1995), Beauty and the Beast (1991), The Little Mermaid (1989), The Lion King (1994), and more.

Disney Releases Update Statement On Fantasmic! Fire- Will Pause Pyro Effect Use
by Justin Hermes · April 23, 2023
Guests visiting Disneyland last night were left stunned as the large Maleficent animatronic caught fire during the nightly performance of Fantasmic.
The show ended prematurely when the fire fell from the dragon’s mouth onto Tim Sawyer Island below . The entire figure was eventually engulfed in flames, and completely destroyed.
Guests were quickly evacuated from the area, with all attractions west of the Jungle Cruise remaining closed. Luckily there were no reported injuries after the incident.
Although some guests reported seeing fluid leaking from the 45-foot dragon figure before it was consumed by flames, Disney had not given an official cause of the accident.
Disney Releases Updated Statement
In an updated statement today, Disney said that it will temporarily suspend the use of fire effects “similar to those used at Disneyland’s parks Fantasmic” at select shows and entertainment experiences globally.
Disney’s full statement reads:
“During the final showing of Fantasmic at Disneyland Park on Saturday evening, the dragon prop caught fire. Anaheim Fire & Rescue quickly responded, and the fire was extinguished. All cast members were safely evacuated from Tom Sawyer Island. Due to smoke and wind, attractions near the island were safely evacuated of any guests, and the cause of the fire remains under investigation at this time. 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. The continued safety of our cast and guests is of the utmost importance.”
Future Performances Paused
While the Maleficent dragon figure was destroyed in last night’s fire, it doesn’t seem as if the show’s infrastructure was majorly damaged.
Despite this, Fantasmic! has been removed from the Disneyland schedule . Both the Anaheim and Walt Disney World versions of the show have the ability to run in “B-Mode”. This version of the show uses a mist screen as opposed to the Maleficent dragon animatronic.

Disneyland dragon catches fire during ‘Fantasmic!’ show, leaving six workers treated for smoke inhalation
A fire broke out at Disneyland on Saturday after an animatronic dragon was engulfed in flames during a live performance at the California theme park.
On 22 April, the 45-foot dragon caught fire during a performance of “Fantasmic!” at Disneyland park in Anaheim, California. The fire was reported at around 11pm local time when Anaheim Fire and Rescue officials assisted the Disneyland Fire Department with putting out the fire on Tom Sawyer Island.
At least six workers were treated for smoke inhalation but needed no further evaluation, a spokesperson for the Anaheim Police Department and Anaheim Fire and Rescue told The New York Times . No guests or firefighters were injured.
The fire occurred near the end of the 30-minute “Fantasmic!” show, in which Mickey Mouse must defeat a “fire-breathing dragon” named Maleficent. In videos captured during Saturday night’s performance, the fire engulfed the dragon’s head before spreading to its neck and body.
“Your attention please,” a voice over the loudspeaker told guests as the fire spread. “Due to unforeseen circumstances, this performance of ‘Fantasmic!’ will not continue. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.”
All cast members and guests were then evacuated from Tom Sawyer Island and attractions near the dragon due to smoke and wind, Disneyland said in a statement. “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,” a spokesperson told the New York Times.
The cause of the fire still remains under investigation, but performances of “Fantasmic!” have since been removed from the Disneyland online schedule .

“Fantasmic!” is a long-running nighttime show that takes place twice nightly near Disneyland park’s Tom Sawyer Island. The outdoor show features “special effects, state-of-the-art projections and superb pyrotechnics” as well as characters from popular Disney animated films.
This isn’t the first time a major attraction at one of Disney’s theme parks has caught fire. In 2018, a dragon float at Disney World’s Fantasy Parade in Orlando, Florida burst into flames and sent thick, black smoke into the air. The flames made its way down the animatronic dragon’s head and neck as many children looked on. A Disney employee was quick to extinguish the flames and no employees or guests were injured during the incident.
A small fire also erupted at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom in 2021 when debris from the fireworks show set off a fire near Cinderella’s Castle . The only injury was a person who accidentally inhaled the chemicals from a chemical fire extinguisher used by the fire department, but they were treated at the scene. The castle and surrounding areas were evacuated
Most recently, a group of passengers on the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction at Disneyland were left stranded in a sinking boat for an hour before firefighters came to the rescue. A viral TikTok video showed the guests sitting in boats that began to fill with water.
“POV: You’re stuck on the pirates ride @ Disneyland and your boat is literally sinking,” wrote TikTok user @justnjames_ over the video. After an hour of sitting in the waterlogged boat, firefighters from the Disneyland Fire Department came to rescue the passengers from the sinking ride by having them walk a makeshift plank from the boat to the ground.
@justnjames_ It was a hot mess. Honestly thought we were gonna swim our way out of this #disneyland #brokenride #piratesofthecaribbean #dca #anaheim #fyp ♬ Disneyland and DCA ride songs - Kelly
“Disney fire department had to come and rescue us,” he said. “After an hour of being stuck we finally got off.”
Passengers were given $30 vouchers to buy dry socks and allowed to skip lines at other rides.

OPENING TIMELINE Revealed for Updated Fantasmic! in Disneyland
Disney entertainment is second to none — on the big screen and in the parks.
But lately, an iconic show has been missing from Disneyland. Fantasmic! suffered a fire-related incident back in April , and the show has been suspended since . Now, Disney has announced details on when we may be able to see the show once again!
Disneyland has announced that Fantasmic! will be returning to the park sometime in spring 2024 — but no concrete dates have been announced just yet.
Not only that, but when the show returns it will be different. The show will not include the Maleficent dragon figure that was the source of the fire, but will include “new special effects and a thrilling new battle scene between Sorcerer Mickey and Maleficent.”
Disney shared that Cast Members and performers have been informed of the downtime and will be trained on other opportunities.
In the meantime, you can catch nightly entertainment on the Rivers of America, Queenie and the Jambalaya Jazz Band in New Orleans Square, and more.
Disney’s official statement reads, “Our goal is to always deliver the best possible show for our guests.
