“Starlight Holidays” Drone Show Begins November 20 at Walt Disney World

We announced previously that Disney received approval to fly drones over their properties, which was previously forbidden.  We knew that this meant that a drone show was in the very near future for Walt Disney World, but we weren’t sure when.  It has now been announced that “Starlight Holidays – An Intel Celebration” will begin on November 20 over Disney Springs.  The performance will be held nightly from November 20 – January 8 at 7PM and 8:30PM.  The show will feature 300 drones that will form shapes and effects in the sky for guests to view.  The show will be accompanied by holiday music played over the speakers as guests watch the show.  This is the largest drone show to be displayed in the United States, so this is a must-see event for any Disney fan!  You won’t want to miss this!


About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
