Disney Springs has stepped up to the plate in hosting new holiday experiences for the 2016 holiday season. One of these new experiences is the Starbright Holidays-An Intel Collaboration Drone Show. This must-see show encourages you to look toward the stars as 300 drones light up the night sky, accompanied by holiday music, to create an incredible new Art form.
The show presents a medley of holiday songs. The opening song is “We Wish You A Merry Christmas” as the drones begin to illuminate the sky. The music then changes to “Oh Christmas Tree” as a Christmas Tree begins to form and swirl. The greens and reds are vibrant and pictures do not do justice to what this actually looks like when you see it in person.
The next musical rendition is “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” as Santa Claus’s voice joins in the song wishing everyone a Merry Christmas. You will then likely recognize the Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s “Carol of the Bells” as the lights from the drones magically dance to the music. This particular segment is very colorful and you are sure to be amazed.
The final segment of Starbright Holidays opens with “Oh Holy Night” and moves into “When You Wish Upon A Star.” As the music plays an Angel forms in the sky. I had goosebumps that had absolutely nothing to do with the cold weather we had that evening! After the Angel has formed, the music medley ends with “Silent Night.”
Who knew that drones would take on a life of their own to create a whole new art form? I am calling this “Drone-Art” as these displays are a bit of magic and creativity, combined with a whole lot of technology, to create a brand new form of Art. When a friend of mine told me early this year that Disney was thinking beyond the traditional for Disney Springs this holiday season, I could never have imagined that I would be seeing drones as the stars of a new experience at the Walt Disney World Resort!
Starbright Holidays is a free show experience that can best be seen along Lake Buena Vista, behind Bongos Restaurant, at Disney Springs. This show will appear at 7:00pm & 8:30pm nightly now through January 8, 2017. Starbright Holidays-An Intel Collaboration Drone Show is a must-see for anyone who has the opportunity to visit Disney Springs this holiday season.
