Disneyland Paris to Feature 200 Drones in 30th Anniversary “Disney Illuminations” Preshow Called “Disney D-Light”

Hi everyone!

Disneyland Paris will be featuring a special 30th Anniversary preshow before Disney Illuminations called Disney D-Light. It will include 200 drones! Disneyland Paris shares a look at the drones in this behind-the-scenes look at the making of the preshow. Disneyland Paris has been secretly testing these drones in Bordeaux. Watch the video below, and there is more information from Disneyland Paris after!

At nightfall, a new spectacular emotional moment will be offered for Guests before one of their favorite shows Disney Illuminations. Called Disney D-Light, this new pre-show will combine video projections, illuminated water jets, lighting effects, mist, famous Disney songs, and above all, drone choreography to bring an additional touch of Magic around the iconic Castle, that has been renovated for the occasion. Filled with special effects, the different scenes will transform the Castle as never before.

To kick off the celebration and for a limited time, a light and air show featuring 200 drones* – designed with the assistance of European expert Dronisos, Official Technology provider based in Bordeaux – will be performed so as to end this new nighttime pre-show in an unforgettable way. These synchronized drones will form a sparkling figure “30” in the sky right above Sleeping Beauty Castle, while the new theme song created for the 30th Anniversary – “Un monde qui s’illumine” – will be played in the background. The soundtrack was recorded with a symphony orchestra at the famous Abbey Road Studios in London, and arranged in a different way for this pre-show, to make it even more emotional.

It will be the first time a Disney Park uses the drone technology as part of a daily outdoor show above its Castle. This innovation is a new step forward in the development of experiences that are always more immersive and spectacular for Disneyland Paris Guests, where technology paves the way for emotions!
