Disney, Intel To Release 300 Drones At Disney World

Technology ace Intel is a name that is known for deploying drones to ensure the proper use of technology. With the 300 drones, Intel and Walt Disney will introduce the "Starbright Holidays" segment for visitors. The show will use the brand new Intel Shooting Star drones that will paint colourful pictures across the sky and offer a unique experience to the visitors who will come to the Disney World expecting the presentation of unique shows.

The colourful images will appear above the Disney Springs shopping, entertainment, and also dining sections of the area. This will be the first time ever since the Americans have come across a drone show of such scale. An aerial performance by the 300 drones with a background holiday themed-music will be choreographed to light up the sky throughout the Disney World area, as stated by the National Geographic.

Disney "Starbright Holidays" To Feature Light Shows, Art In The Sky

Inte's New Technology Group's Vice President and General Manager Josh Walden expressed his excitement over working with Walt Disney. He said that both the brands are trying to introduce an innovative approach to featuring light shows. "Together, we worked to tackle a new frontier in entertainment, picturing the sky as our canvas and flying lights as ink," he added referring to the deployment of 300 drones for "Starbright Holidays".

As soon as the "Starbright Holidays" segment with 300 drones will commence, Disney World will invite visitors to the Disney Springs area and ask them to look up to the sky. The new program will also enable guests to make a special wish while looking up. The choreography for aerial performance will be accompanied by a complete orchestrated piece comprising seasonal classics.

While other programs will commence on November 16, the 300 drone-driven segment will start later from November 20 and will continue to January 8, 2017, Venture Beat mentioned. This holiday season will be the best for Disney World goers as they will get to see some real technologically-driven programs.
