Drone shows are all the rage this summer in Orlando as the Gaylord Palms Resort is the latest to launch its nighttime spectacular alongside Disney and Universal.

Gaylord Palms says, "The night lights up high above our Coquina Lawn with synchronized, brightly colored drones in the all-new 'Sounds of America' show. Hundreds of drones lift off and paint the skies in a luminous tapestry of aerial art. The patriotic performance is a symphony of sight and sound, featuring an original Gaylord Hotels musical soundtrack."

Sounds of America: A Nighttime Spectacular will be performed at 9 pm on May 31, June 7, June 14, June 28, July 3, July 5, July 19, July 26, August 9, August 10, August 30, September 1.

The Gaylord Palms Resort drone show comes just a week after "Disney Dreams That Soar" debuted at Disney Springs in Walt Disney World. Gaylord Palms is located behind Disney's Pop Century Resort and just minutes away from Disney Springs.

Running from May 24 to September 2, "Disney Dreams That Soar" brings the Disney Springs Lake to life with larger-than-life images of classic Disney characters drones choreographed with iconic quotes from fan-favorite films such as Disney's "Peter Pan," "Dumbo," "Wall-E," "Big Hero 6," "Star Wars" and more. The show also features scores from favorite Disney soundtracks and an original song composed exclusively for this show.

At nearby Universal Orlando, starting June 14, "CineSational: A Symphonic Spectacular" will feature 228 fountains that reach heights up to 131 feet, 4K projection mapping, an original composition featuring newly arranged scores, and more than 600 drones.

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.

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???????
