Elaine Gilmer observed novel additions to "Fantasmic!" at Disneyland, including a glowing dragon's head and simulated fire and smoke, which surprised her.
During "Fantasmic!" at Disneyland, Elyssa, Elaine Gilmer's daughter, noticed the fire from the animatronic dragon's mouth spreading to its body, which is modeled after Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty.
Elaine witnessed small explosions from the dragon's head during "Fantasmic!" at Disneyland, followed by the entire creature being engulfed in flames and park workers evacuating the audience for safety.
Videos circulated online showing an unexpected chaotic ending to the "Fantasmic!" show at Disneyland, with the dragon engulfed in flames instead of the usual climax involving Mickey Mouse and Maleficent.
