First Look at “Disney Dreams That Soar”: Walt Disney World Drone Show Coming May 24th, 2024

Hi everyone!

Walt Disney World has shared a sneak peek of the “Disney Dreams that Soar” drone show  coming to Disney Springs from May 24th – August 2nd, 2024. The show will run just under 10 minutes, will play twice per night (9:00pm and 10:45pm) and it features a variety of Disney characters and stories, including Dumbo, Baymax from “Big Hero 6” and Wall-E.

There will be 800 drones as part of “Disney Dreams that Soar”!

The video provided by Disney gives a look at drone testing that happened in France for the show. Dronisos is headquartered in Bordeaux (and the jackets that are worn in the video do mention the company name), so I assume that is where the testing occurred – just as Disneyland Paris has tested drones there for their wonderful drone shows.

Watch the video and read more at the end of the article about “Disney Dreams that Soar”.

And here are photos of the show!
