ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - The "Festival of the Lion King Show" at Walt Disney World has resumed, a day after 1,000 people were evacuated to safety after a small fire broke out.

Disney spokeswoman Jacquee Wahler said the show was up and running Tuesday

The fire started Monday afternoon under one of the floats used at the show inspired by the Disney movie "The Lion King."

A Disney worker extinguished the blaze before firefighters got to the scene.

There were no injuries.

Guests received tickets for a different show after Monday's last show was canceled.

Wahler says the cause of the fire was electrical.
