Technology behind the first Drone Show at Walt Disney World


Last month Disney Springs opened a new night time aerial show featuring over 300 Intel Shooting Star drones choreographed to beautiful holiday medley of memorable music. It’s a first-of-its-kind show and the first generation of what this technology will eventually be capable of.

Regardless it’s both impressive and awe inspiring at the same time. If certain segments of it reminds you of Disney’s animated feature “Tangled” when the lanterns are released into the sky, you’d be correct. The show, as we learn in this video from Disney’s Imagineers and experts from Intel reveals:

In case you missed it, here’s our video of Starbright Holidays from the first press preview in November:

Some of the best viewing areas are right along the water’s edge behind Bongo’s and Exhibition Park on the Westside. We’ve also heard that viewing is pretty good from the opposite side of the lake by Saratoga Springs DVC resort.

  1. I always like to watch Disney movies like Cinderella. It’s a beautiful story with a lot of meaning. The movie is for children but also for adults. It’s a movie based on sciencefiction and drama, that’s the reason why it’s always nice to see. I wonder how Cinderella can always listen to her stepmother and never do things that she likes to do. But at the end it’s amazing to see how Cinderella is changed. I can’t wait to see a new movie If you look the trailer, you will convinced to watch the whole movie! I like the movie really much and i’m gonna watch him again.

  2. With this showing only at 7 and 8;30, it’s a missed opportunity to bring crowds to Disney Springs after the parks close- especially on Christmas Party nights. Something later may have been more profitable.
