Videos captured by guests at the theme park in Anaheim went viral on social media shortly after the fire broke out. Clips show the dragon engulfed in flames as parkgoers observed and were evacuated from the area.

Fantasmic! originally opened in 1992 in Frontierland featuring fireworks, characters, live actors, water effects, pyrotechnics, lasers, music, audio-animatronics, searchlights, decorated boat floats, and mist screen projections.

The show has been running off and on with its most recent reopening in February of this year. The show goes inside Mickey Mouse’s imagination as he battles against the Disney Villains, including Maleficent in her dragon form.
