PHOTOS, VIDEO: Drones Appear in Disney Fireworks Show for First Time Ever as Disneyland Paris Celebrates Bastille Day 2022

Disneyland Paris celebrated Bastille Day, France’s national day, on July 14. Typically they would put on a fireworks spectacular in celebration, but it was cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions in 2020 and 2021. Now it has returned to the skies above the park — and with drones to become the first-ever Disney fireworks spectacular to use drones.

The drones usually appear in the “Disney D-Light” preshow for “Disney Illuminations” to create the Disneyland Paris 30th Anniversary logo. In this performance, we saw them take the shape and colors of the French flag to celebrate the country’s national holiday.

Of course there were plenty of fireworks as well. The show celebrated Disney films set in France, such as “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” and “Ratatouille.”

Speaking of, the drones also formed the stained glass window pattern from “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” above Le Château de la Belle au Bois Dormant.
