The Celebratory Disney Flying Dragon Enchants Night's Sky

In celebration of the opening of Disney World’s latest park expansion called Fantasyland comes the dramatic entrance of a majestic flying dragon that breathes fire.

Unfortunately for you crytozoologists out there, the flying dragon is not a real one. By taking advantage of the night’s sky and manipulating the lighting, the dream makers at Disney World were able to portray a very impressive and lifelike flying dragon. The included pictures will reveal that the flying dragon is actually a manned parachute with a fan propeller.

Originally, the flying dragon sighting was meant to be a one-time only event, but due to popular demand the creative director of Fantasyland has hinted at an encore -- c'mon Disney, do it for the children (and for the young at heart, of course).
