After a few weeks of some images and information coming from Disneyland Paris, and some coming from other sources, the biggest reveal of all has come straight from the Disneyland Paris communications department. The one float we have all been waiting to see is here, or there, in Disneyland Paris to be precise. The Discover Enchantment float, in the form of the much anticipated Steampunk Maleficent dragon has arrived in Disneyland Paris, and this photo has been sent out.
The version we have in Disneyland Paris, and as promised in the press release, is much more copper in colour and less purple than its Floridian counterpart. She looks beautiful and of the utmost importance, the official text that accompanies this photo confirms that she will be breathing fire. There was rumour that there would be no fire, and more recently that it would only be on certain parts of the parade route. At the very least we can put the first part of that to rest, as for how much fire and where – we’ll just have to wait and see.
With the images and artwork we saw of three other floats last week, and now this magnificent Jules Verne inspired beast, I stand by my prophecy that Disney Stars on Parade has the makings to be the very best parade we have ever seen in Disneyland Paris and I couldn’t be more pumped to see this dragon in action.
