‘Disney Dreams That Soar’ Drone Show Debuts at Disney Springs

'Disney Dreams That Soar' Drone Show Debuts at Disney Springs disney-dreams-that-soar-title

Friday was an exciting, albeit crowded, night at Disney Springs in Walt Disney World as the brand-new Disney Dreams That Soar drone show made its official debut! The last time we saw a drone show in Disney Springs was during the holiday season in 2016. Of course, technology has come a long way since then and the folks at Disney Live Entertainment put together something fabulous!

With nightly performances running from May 24 to September 2, guests can take a break from shopping and watch the skies above Disney Springs for a fun show utilizing state-of-the-art drones to feature beloved Disney characters.

We put a lot of thought into making sure that no matter how old you are, or how much of a fan you are, you’re likely to see a character that you love. This is an elaborate, one-of-a-kind show of scale and technology where guests will be wowed by the emotion of seeing these treasured stories appear in the sky, at sizes larger than beloved icons like Spaceship Earth and Cinderella Castle.
