“Avengers: Power the Night” is a new nighttime Marvel drone show coming to Disneyland Paris from January 28th – May 8th, 2023! The show is created in partnership with Bordeaux-based company Dronisos. “Avengers: Power the Night” will take place in Walt Disney Studios Park and will include up to 500 drones creating images in the sky with projections on the Tower of Terror. Producer Ben Spalding (who produced the “Disney D-Light” drone show at Disneyland Park) and director Arnaud Feredj talk about the show in the video below.
This will be the first Marvel drone show performed daily in a Disney park! This is part of the Grand Finale for the 30th Anniversary of Disneyland Paris.

The pair talk about how the show will combine drones and pyrotechnics. There are more than 30 people creating “Avengers: Power the Night”! Feredj says that “This show will offer a completely unique take on our iconic Marvel characters, including Doctor Strange, Hulk and Captain America, who will be directly projected onto the Tower of Terror.” And those projections will be combined with drones and pyrotechnics – with up to 500 drones creating images in the sky!
Spalding says that “It was a really big challenge for us to make a show that has never been done before, so we had to make it to work on the Tower of Terror.” He also said that all this work had to be done in secret, at night when everybody is sleeping.
The music for the show was created at Abbey Road Studios with a symphony orchestra composed of more than 70 musicians. Music from Marvel films will be reorchestrated for the show.
From Disneyland Paris:
In addition to the recent openings of Marvel Avengers Campus and the Disney Hotel New York® – The Art of Marvel, guests will be offered another breathtaking Marvel experience: “Avengers: Power the Night”. This brand-new nighttime drone show will light up the sky nightly at Walt Disney Studios Park®, beginning January 28th through May 8th, 2023.
This worldwide exclusivity within the Disney Parks all around the world, the very first nighttime drone show daily performed and dedicated to Marvel Super Heroes, in a Disney Park will combine music, lights, pyrotechnic effects, video projections and up to 500 drones that will form an awe-inspiring series of icons representing the powers of iconic Super Heroes, including Captain America, Captain Marvel, Scarlet Witch and for the first time at Disneyland Paris, Shang-Chi.
Countless Disneyland Paris Cast Members – including show directors, special effect designers, lighting and motion designers – have combined their expertise and creativity to develop this exclusive show, which will feature a soundtrack comprised of some of the most iconic Marvel scores that have been specially reorchestrated with a symphony orchestra composed of more than 70 musicians at the famous Abbey Road Studios in London.
To continually push beyond the boundaries of innovation, the laser video projectors that are used for this show boast energy-efficient technology while delivering high-quality images.
This show was yet another opportunity for Disneyland Paris to collaborate with the European leader in drone shows, Bordeaux-based company Dronisos, who were recently named as the official technology provider of the resort for the second year in a row. This collaboration has notably paved the way for the creation of the resort’s 30th Anniversary’s nighttime drone show “Disney D-Light,” which has been dazzling guests of all ages each night since March 6th, 2022 and was even named “Best Live Entertainment 2022” during the Park World Excellence Awards Ceremony that was held in London in September 2022.
With Marvel Avengers Campus, the Disney Hotel New York® – The Art of Marvel, and “Avengers: Power the Night”, Disneyland Paris has become the ULTIMATE destination in Europe for Marvel fans who want to enjoy an immersive experience alongside their favorite Super Heroes.
