    Hello, how long will the drone show at Disney Springs be running for please? Is it just for 2024 or is it planned to be a long term show, eg extending into summer 2025? The impact on boat transport to/from POFQ is of concern to us.

    Hi Lorraine!
    Welcome to planDisney.

    It's always a pleasure to assist my fellow guests from the UK!

    The new drone light show 'Disney Dreams That Soar Presented by AT&T' has just made its debut at Disney Springs.   Currently it is scheduled to run this Summer from 24th May- 2nd September.  We don't know if it will continue next year.  

    The show can be seen from many areas at Disney Springs, but the best viewing areas are along the waterfront in West Side between House of Blues to Aerophile - the World Leader in Balloon Flight, with an additional viewing area on the lawn located by the Strawberry Parking Lot.  The show lasts for around 10 minutes, with a nightly schedule of 9.00pm and 10.45pm (subject to change).

    I understand your concern about the impact on boat transport to/from Disney's Port Orleans French Quarter, because this show is likely to bring more guests to Disney Springs during the evening.  Take a look at this Disney Springs Map because the boats travel to Disneys Port Orleans Resort, Disney's Old Key West Resort and Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort from the boat dock at Marketplace, close to Rainforest Cafe which is at the complete opposite end of Disney Springs to the main viewing areas for the show.  More guests will probably come to the area, but access to the boat dock is unlikely to be affected too much.  I recommend that you keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog for any official updates about this show continuing into 2025.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions, and you can send me a direct question if you wish.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical holiday to Walt Disney World.
