This Disney Drone Light Show Looks Like a Beautiful Alien Invasion

Drones are all the rage, but Disney has taken it to the next level with this synchronised drone light show. Disney was given special permission earlier this month from the Federal Aviation Administration to use drones in its theme parks. I guess we finally know what it was for.

Drones have been under heavy scrutiny by regulators since their rise in popularity. The the US FAA even began requiring people register their drones with the agency. Disney receiving this special permission for this light show is a pretty big get. It’s also a pretty sweet show, with what seems to be at least a hundred drones with controllable colour lights flying in sequence to create holiday imagery, like Father Christmas or candy canes.
