BREAKING: New Drone Show Coming to Disney Springs This Summer

Disney announced that a new drone show, “Disney Dreams That Soar,” will run nightly at Disney Springs this summer.

“Disney Dreams That Soar” will be performed above Lake Buena Vista on the West Side of Disney Springs from May 24 through September 2.

“You can fly” takes on a whole new meaning as we showcase Disney stories celebrating the joy of flight with state-of-the-art drones choreographed to create designs in the sky and paired with a “soaring” musical score (see what I did there?) and memorable movie quotes.

Disney Live Entertainment Parades and Spectaculars Executive Steve Davison stated last fall that “drones are the next thing,” teasing more drone shows coming to Disney Parks.

In 2016, Disney Springs featured the limited-time “Starbright Holidays” drone show with pre-programmed flight paths and light designs. You can watch our video below:

We haven’t seen much drone use state-side since but Disneyland Paris has featured several drone shows in the past few years, including Disney D-Light for the resort’s 30th anniversary and “Avengers: Power the Night.”

A Tokyo Disney Resort 40th anniversary drone show was performed at various festivals throughout Japan but not in the park.

Disneyland Resort was reportedly considering using drones in their nighttime spectaculars but nothing has come of the 2022 rumors.

Disney filed a patent in August of 2020 that focused on a drone’s ability to carry or impact other show elements in addition to being decorative. The patent described “a new aerial show system . . . adapted for utilizing energy of an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) to activate and/or animate creative show effect devices or show elements to produce dynamic show effects as the UAV flies through a show’s airspace.”
