The Disney D-Light drone show debuted last night at Disneyland Paris – it was one of the best Disney Castle shows I’ve ever seen. It is both a pre-show and post-show for Disney Illuminations, but the latter – the “After Glow” is such a beautiful, stunning way to use the drone technology. I am so glad we will be here to see it quite a few more times. We were told by the show producer that we should see it at various angles, it looks a little different as you move around the hub. We have two videos below.
Here is the “After Glow” drone sequence video first.
And the pre-show:
From Disneyland Paris about the drone show:
At nightfall and for a limited time, the Disney D-Light sequence will offered in addition to the Guest-favorite Disney Illuminations show, combining video projections, illuminated water jets, lighting effects, mist, lasers, and nodes to famous Disney songs for an unforgettable moment ending with a drone display above the iconic Sleeping Beauty Castle.
This illuminated drone* display – designed with the help of European expert Dronisos, an Official Technology provider based in Bordeaux – will bring a memorable close to an eventful day. The synchronized drones will form a sparkling figure “30” in the sky above Sleeping Beauty Castle, as the new 30th Anniversary theme song, “Un monde qui s’illumine,” plays in the background. This new anthem was recorded with a symphony orchestra of 60 musicians at the famous Abbey Road Studios in London.
This marks the first time that a Disney resort uses drone technology as part of a daily outdoor show above the Castle, a next step in the development of experiences that are increasingly immersive and engaging for Guests through innovative technologies.
