Drones may be used in Disney Parks in the future.

The moment I saw the usage in Lotte World recently, I figured Disney couldn't be far behind. It's the natural progression of Pyro, Parades, Water Screens and Projection mapping for their "next great nighttime offering".

These are cool applications I hadn't even considered, I figured the most obvious would be a Tangled segment.


Wow! That looks pretty cool.

A poster on the disboards spotted drones above Epcot. Are they testing these already?

We just were at Epcot watching Illuminations. We were at the American Pavilion and were heard a bunch of what sounded like helicopters. I looked up and saw what I assumed were at least 3 or 4 helicopters hovering in back of the American and Italy pavilions. They were considerably loud and could be heard during the quieter parts of the show. You could see people turning around to see what the noise was. None of us thought that they were drones.

Interesting. The poster thought they were drones.

The same thing occurred during the Friday night show as well, except it was just one helicopter. I noticed it approach World Showcase from the China/Outpost end, hover between the Outpost/Germany, then move towards AA/Japan/Morocco, before finally returning to the east side and hovering near Mexico.

A month ago there was a helicopter hovering over illuminations as well. Maybe it's filming something?

All I can thing is surprise on the sky 2.0 or Tapestry of Nations 2.0
I thought of the same thing with Tapestry of Nations :) sadly the drones would be to close to the guests though. Maybe it could work in the lagoon though! Actually it's funny when they first announced the millennium celebration and tapestry of nations, before knew it was a parade, I envisioned the puppets dancing around in the lagoon.
Well the subtitle these Illuminations replacement rumors have been using for years was called Sky Dance. Doing it as a Tapestry reboot mixing drone puppetry and the bag of tricks they've developed for World of Color and Rivers of Light could be spectacular.
 
Rivers of light looks amazing, I don't see much of a need for tapestry. I just hope they add in some music although what I heard already sounds great. I am curious to see if any tapestry like puppets appear under drones. Looks like they could really blow Paint the Night out of the water as well.
