Disney wants to use drones as part of its fireworks shows at Disneyland and Disney World

Disney wants to fly drones as parts of its fireworks shows and is asking the Federal Aviation Administration for permission, Marketwatch has reported.

Disney is seeking authorization from the Federal Aviation Administration to fly up to 50 drones at a time to add special effects to fireworks at Disneyland and Disney World.

The proposal is outlined in the Section 333 exemption and shows the areas specifically being requests is around Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland and in Epcot

The drones would fly in a “pyrotechnic clear zone,” meaning areas that are inaccessible to visitors, according to Marketwatch,

The drones would fly preprogrammed flight paths and emit LED lights normally for 5 minutes but could go up to 10 minutes.

The special drones are called Flixels, which is Disney’s proprietary unmanned aircraft system.
