The Fantasmic show at Disneyland got a little too realistic on Saturday evening when an animatronic dragon caught fire during the final showing.
During a performance with the main mouse himself, the fire-breathing dragon accidentally set fire to itself.
About 1,000 people were evacuated from the area by park employees as the spreading flames were being extinguished.
A park patron caught the incident on video and posted it to Twitter with the caption:
"Fantastic Fantasmic fail - wow!"

People on Twitter reacted to the pyrotechnic fail.
One even got in a dig at the platform CEO's SpaceX explosion.
Many expressed their concern for employees and patrons attending the show.
\u201c@Ms_JessicaT It's likely more than the dragon is seriously damaged. Curious how the rest of the stage fared, the shack behind, mechanics in the pit, etc. The show could be down for months.\u201d— JessicaT (@JessicaT) 1682229758
\u201c@Ms_JessicaT We won\u2019t be seeing this show for a long time if ever again! \ud83d\ude1e! Hopefully no cast members were hurt\u201d— JessicaT (@JessicaT) 1682229758
Mostly, though, viewers of the shared their surprise and terror over the ordeal.
Disneyland representatives said in a statement:
"During the final showing of Fantasmic at Disneyland park on Saturday evening, the dragon caught fire."
"Anaheim Fire & Rescue quickly responded and the fire was extringuished."
"All cast members were safely evacuated from Tom Sawyer Island."
"Due to smoke and wind, attractions near the island were safely evacuated of any guests, and the cause of the fire remains under investigation at this time."
Yikes! This is terrifying, but we're happy no injuries were reported.
