Disneyland Paris Announces Disney D-Light Preshow Featuring Drone Choreography

During a digital press conference this morning, Disneyland Paris revealed that drone technology will be used for a new preshow called Disney Illuminations: Disney D-Light.

What’s Happening:

  • As part of Disneyland Paris’ 30th anniversary celebration, a new preshow will join the popular Disney Illuminations nighttime spectacular.
  • Disney D-Light will feature projections on Sleeping Beauty Castle, illuminated water jets, and lighting effects but will also employ 200 drones that will recreate the 30th anniversary logo in the sky.
  • The preshow also includes music — a take on the 30th anniversary theme “Un monde qui s’illumine” — recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London.
  • While a drone show previously appeared at Disney Springs in 2016, this will be the first time such technology has been used on a nightly basis in a Disney Park  — or as Disneyland Paris stated even more specifically in its press release, “It will be the first time a Disney Park uses the drone technology as part of a daily outdoor show above its Castle.”
  • The drones were designed with the assistance of Bordeaux-based Dronisos.
  • Disneyland Paris’ 30th anniversary celebration kicks off on March 6th, 2022.
