Amazing Holiday Show Drone Performances at Disney Springs

Amazing Holiday Show Drone Performances at Disney Springs

Drones. Thanks to the amazing progress in technology, they are nowadays used for deliveries (by some of the biggest shipping and online shopping companies), monitoring, in photography and videography (getting stunning shots on a low budget), capturing live events (concerts, sports events), etc. Now, Disney has found an amazing way to make them a part of the holiday spirit at Disney Springs!

Using innovative technologies, the Disney holiday show drones are the “star” of the new holiday show you can enjoy till 8th January 2017. More than 300 drones are in charge of amazing Disney Springs visitors, magically illuminating the sky during the nightly show performances.

“Starbright Holidays – An Intel Collaboration”, as the show is called, is just one of the special Disney holiday experiences visitors can enjoy this holiday season at Disney Springs. There will be also a brand-new Christmas Tree Trail, traditional seasonal entertainment, colorful festive décor, and, of course, the long-expected meet and greets with Santa!

No reservations are needed for the drone show and the nightly performances take place at Disney Springs at 7:00 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. from Nov. 20 – Jan 8. This drone show performance, accompanied by an original Disney arrangement of classic holiday songs (recorded by a full orchestra!), is a must see as a show of this scale and grandeur has never been performed in the United States before.

The perfect viewing area for Starbright Holidays – An Intel Collaboration

The best viewing area for the holiday drone show is on the West Side at Disney Springs. To be more precise, you will find the perfect viewing spot at the waterfront area on the West Side, right behind Bongos and the House of Blues.
