Disney World’s New Nighttime Light Show Will Feature Dozens Of Drones

A whole new world. A dazzling place I never knew. But when I’m way up here. It’s crystal clear…That now I’m in a whole new world with you.

If you just sang that out loud, you’re probably thinking of Aladdin and Jasmine’s stunning magic carpet ride. Wasn’t it amazing?!

Well, prepare yourself for a whole new show because Disney World has a new night time light spectacular! Not only will you get to enjoy beloved Disney classics, but Disney is gearing up with high tech illuminated drones to make the high flying show even more magical.

“This holiday season, the idea of ‘wishing upon a star’ will take on an even more magical meaning in the skies of Disney Springs,” Disney wrote in a  recent blog post.  Disney Springs is a the shopping district inside Walt Disney World Florida. The shopping district isn’t a part of the theme park, which means you’ll be able to take in the new night time show without having to purchase a ticket.

The new drone show has been in the works since 2014, but obtaining FAA permission was a little tricky. After 9/11 all airspace above theme parks was deemed a no-fly zone, including drones.  

Disney hasn’t stated when the new show will officially kick off, but we can’t wait! Get a first look sneak peek at the new dazzling light show here.
