Disney World Taken Over By Maleficent VIA Lightening!

This is so cool. Creepy, but cool!

Over the weekend, Maleficent-esque lightening took over Cinderella's Castle. (Yes, we get it's not Sleeping Beauty's but follow the coolness of this.)

The Magic Kingdom was privy to some insane lightening before their fireworks show, according to Buzzfeed, and as a kid, I probably would have thought one of the Disney villains was taking over. 

I really love lightning. #lightning #dcp2015 #storm #waltdisneyworld #disneyworld #cinderellascastle

I mean, that's just nuts. Right behind the castle. 

Another theory? Tinkerbell Exploded!

As soon as the storm cleared, the fireworks went on.
