The Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade is set to debut later this spring at the Magic Kingdom, and Disney has just announced a new float for the parade.

The float will represent Sleeping Beauty’s Maleficent in the form of a 35-foot-long, 26-foot high Steampunk-inspired dragon.

The Maleficent Dragon was designed in partnership with Michael Curry, a Tony Award winner who also collaborated with Disney Parks on the Tapestry of Nations parade at Epcot, and Finding Nemo – The Musical at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

The Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade will also feature floats with the Disney Princesses, Ariel and her undersea friends, Merida, Peter Pan and Wendy, and Rapuzel with Flynn Rider.

The parade is meant to be a celebration of Fantasyland, and with each float is being designed so it appears as though the characters had a hand in creating them.
