Disney World using 300 drones in new holiday light show

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Walt Disney World is using 300 drones in a new Christmas light show.

A dress rehearsal was held Wednesday night, but Disney has not announced dates for the show.

Tt is believed to be the first time drones will be used in a performance of this magnitude in the U.S.

Disney is collaborating with Intel on the project. The show will take place at Disney Springs.

Intel's drone weighs less than a volleyball and are equipped with four LED lights that can create over 4 billion color combinations. They can fly for 20 minutes and are allowed to fly as high as 400 feet. All 300 drones are controlled by one computer.

Disney has a second 300-drone fleet but has not said what they intend to use it for.
