Disney has unveiled all the details for the upcoming "Disney Dreams that Soar" drone show that will run nightly from May 24 through September 2, 2024, at Disney Springs in Walt Disney World.


Showtimes for the 9-minute show are 9 pm and 10:45 pm, with viewing areas located 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. Don't forget your MagicBand+ - it will come alive—lighting up, vibrating and interacting with the show.


Here is a first listen to the "Disney Dreams that Soar" music and a look at many of the Disney characters that will be created in the sky from 800 drones above the lake at Disney Springs.

Steve hasn't put a Clock on HEA yet....... A perfect solution would be Drones (if safe) in place of OUAT, MK Night Parade and HEA or something that Tops HEA! Or...Drones actually in OUAT! Since MK doesn't want to return OUAT on its own or get TDL'S OUAT Pyro Package!!

I’ll sound like an old man, but that’s crazy that there isn’t a trail through that conservation land! It doubles the walk time! Perhaps faster and easier to walk than to drive, but I’ve never taken an Uber to or from Disney Springs. I know the drop off area well, but can’t attest to how well it would handle an influx of cars.

Planning on going tonight, staying at the Hyatt’s Grand Cypress near Springs. Should I take Uber instead of driving? It’s a 40 min walk btw lol seems quicker than driving

Not sure, but because the park was closed they could fly from backstage without any guest overflight issues.

Do you know where they launched from when they did that little test preview over the tree of life?

The viewing area that is circled also looks too close to the seating area to be an effective drone show. Your either too limited in distance to make a worthwild show, or your going to have to have the drones flying further away, putting them over guest areas or animal areas, niether of which is ideal.

It is all too close to guest areas unfortunately. There is no staging area for them to land, and they would have to fly over guest areas.

Four outcomes with drones at MK. A separate nightly drone show, DAH drone show, drone addition to HEA or the very unpopular outcome which is replacing HEA.

The water screen effect wasn’t spectacular for the show.

Wasn't it the same with the water screen?

ToTBellHop22 hours ago

That’s challenging when showing Disney characters. They are noticeably backwards from SSR, for example.

Those far left 3 sections don’t face that way. Are you suppose to crane your neck to watch the show? And do they make the perfect viewing angle face the one area of the viewing area without seats? The amphitheater was not designed for a show with a single, optimal viewing angle. This would make drone usage at Epcot hard, too. It would work best over the Castle or Chinese Theatre.

And to add to this, drone shows don’t HAVE to be 2d. They can be 3d, or positioned in a way that everyone could have a enjoyable view.

Why can't they do the drones here: It didn't seem like a problem for the water screen for ROL.
