Eight months after catching fire in the middle of a parade, the Maleficent fire-breathing dragon float has returned to the Magic Kingdom.

The popular float caught fire during a parade in May while fans looked on.

After almost a year of refurbishment and redesign, the float is back in the parade with added safety enhancements, park officials said.
