  • [Question] Is the Fantasmic! dragon broken?

    We watched Fantismic! the 14th. I haven't seen it in a while, but there used to be a huge animatronic dragon that sprayed fire and set the river on fire. Friday night all we got was a projection of a dragon on a water screen. Is this the new normal, or has the dragon broken down?

    This is usually a major refurb month for fan, I'd imagine it's just getting a refurb and will be back soon.

        History Note:
        Murphy ( Murphy Law) D
        ragon had initial problems before a scheduled debut date and was unable to operate on said date.
        The new dragon premiered on September 1, 2009.

          Thanks gang! Part of my confusion was that back in the day, when Murphy would break down, it would be all over this site. Perhaps it's because he didn't slump over in the middle of a show like last time.

            I've seen Fantasmic! twice in the last 2 weeks and both times there was no "real" dragon. In the "good ol' days", they just kept Maleficent up during the entire scene, and she was the one who set the river on fire. I prefer that over the weak projection dragon they're using now, because you can barely make it out.

                That damn dragon never works. When it first debuted I thought it was going to be amazing, but now I think I prefer the old dragon head on a stick.

                  Since they got the new (2017) dragon, there have been a lot less issues.

                    As of 2/28 the Dragon is back and full functional! Hasn't been breathing fire due to wind conditions on show nights, but she's never looked so majestic! ^_^
