Walt Disney World's new Dragon debuts above the Magic Kingdom's New Fantasyland
December 5, 2012, 7:13 PM ·
Disney tonight premiered its new flying dragon, during a party celebrating the official opening of the New Fantasyland at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom.
Here's the video:
This is Disney's heavily-hyped new flying plaything, though it remains to be seen whether Disney will make this a recurring feature in the Magic Kingdom (a la Tinkerbell's castle fly-by), or if it will leave the dragon's appearance as a one-shot deal, with the technology to be re-employed elsewhere, at another time.
As for the New Fantasyland - despite this week's "official opening" the new section of this land isn't finished yet. Its centerpiece - the Snow White-themed Seven Dwarfs Mine Train - won't open for at least another year. And what is opening this week has been officially soft opened for a couple weeks, and unofficially opened for a couple weeks before that.
