Disney Drone Parade
Drones make some people think of military and surveillance activities. And others wait for the day when drones will deliver our Amazon packages or our pizza order. But Disneyworld hasn’t been at the top of the “Cool Things Drones Can Do” list, until now.
Disney theme parks are well known for their rides, their friendly characters, the castle and their parades. The awesome displays of color and music and dancing require many stagehands, but this past month, Disney filed for three patents to use unmanned aerial vehicles in their parks. UVAs, more commonly known as drones, will completely revolutionize the park experience.
With UVAs, Disney Parks will have the ability to project images on drone lifted screens high in the sky. There are also plans to create giant sized parade puppets, manned solely by an army of drones (pictured above). And yet another patent suggests that Disney is working on virtual fireworks for their daily nighttime shows, saving lots of cost, and our planet!
The Federal Aviation Administration hasn’t approved drones for commercial uses yet, so it might be years before we have to say goodbye to the smell of firework bi-products.
