Disney has shared a behind-the-scenes look at preparations for the upcoming new drone show at Disney Springs.

"Disney Dreams That Soar" is a summertime experience that will be a late-night perk for visitors. Taking place over the Disney Springs lake, "Disney Dreams That Soar," will showcase Disney stories celebrating the joy of flight with state-of-the-art drones choreographed to create designs in the sky and paired with a "soaring" musical score and memorable movie quotes. 

Disney will use 800 drones in the 10-minute show to create Disney characters and scenes in the sky, such as The Rocketeer, Orange Bird, the Deathstar—which is actually bigger than Spaceship Earth—and Baymax, which is even bigger than the Deathstar. When watching "Disney Dreams That Soar," your MagicBand+ will come alive—lighting up, vibrating and interacting with the show.

"Disney Dreams That Soar" will run nightly from May 24 through September 2, 2024. Viewing areas are on Disney Springs West Side—along the waterfront between the Cirque du Soleil Theatre and Aerophile. Viewing areas for Disney Dreams That Soar will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

The thing is like 9 minutes long… …the thing is like 9 minutes long Don’t make the piracy so “normal”, please?

Disney would be charging more than $120/person for a dessert party. I'd say that $25/person for guaranteed seating is more than fair. Whether you pay for food and drink is on you and that is separate.

I can maybe see $25 per table but $25 a person?!? 🤦🏻‍♀️

Or any nighttime show for that matter at AK. And we need drones that rise up for the “I See The Light” segments in HEA and Luminous!

A Christmas version perhaps?

I’m sure an extension is possible if it’s still popular by late summer or perhaps a Christmas return.

Before the Official Announcement, we thought Drones were ready for a Park. Whether This Show went to DS for Safety or to help DS IDK, but it's paying off! I really wish Dreams That Soar could stay at DS! Does Everything really need a Park Ticket???????

Something I found very interesting. In the imagineering video about music a couple of weeks ago, during the part about this show, the writer of the song says "I just imagine my daughter hearing the song in the park". Was this show originally meant for one of the parks and was moved to Springs, or what it just him misspeaking? If it was originally meant for a park, I wonder which one.

1 hour before for good spots, 30 min before for a spot for the first show. 30 min wait for good spots, 15 min for a spot for the second show. This show gets my stamp of approval, I hope something similar to this is added to AK.
