LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (May 24, 2024) – “Disney Dreams That Soar presented by AT&T,” the newest nighttime entertainment at Walt Disney World Resort, officially made its debut Friday night in the skies above Disney Springs. Running May 24 to September 2, this innovative drone show combines technology and storytelling to offer a larger-than-life viewing experience for the summer.  

The new, limited-time show uses 800 cutting-edge drones choreographed to create over 30 characters in the night sky from beloved Disney, Pixar, Marvel, and Star Wars movies. Set to an original soundtrack and memorable quotes, figures soar to heights of up to 400 feet to create a visually stunning experience for audiences of all ages. With scenes like a 213-foot Death Star amid a galactic battle to an appearance from Tinker Bell spreading pixie dust, this expansive character collection offers something for every Disney fan.  

“We put a lot of thought into making sure that no matter how old you are, or how much of a fan you are, you’re likely to see a character that you love,” said Disney Live Entertainment Executive Creative Director Tom Vazzana. “This is an elaborate, one-of-a-kind show of scale and technology where guests will be wowed by the emotion of seeing these treasured stories appear in the sky, at sizes larger than beloved icons like Spaceship Earth and Cinderella Castle.” 

The show lights up the sky above Disney Springs for just under 10 minutes nightly, providing guests with an enchanting conclusion to a day filled with shopping and other activities. Guests wearing MagicBand+ can also enjoy interacting with “Disney Dreams That Soar,” as the accessories light up, vibrate and sync with the spectacle that’s unfolding in the night sky. 

“Creativity and innovation are part of everything we do at Disney Springs, from the incredible places to dine to the mix of shopping options,” said Disney Springs Vice President Matt Simon. “This is what makes ‘Disney Dreams That Soar’ a great fit for Disney Springs, and the perfect ending to remember your day.”
