Seventy-five drones were used for the “Independence Illumination” show, done in partnership with drone light show innovator SkyLites. It was aimed at emulating the resort’s “Grand Illumination” winter event that lights up the holiday trees.
The video above, taken by Johnny Oliver, shows just one of the many spectacular transitions. Watch how, in 41 seconds, the drones switch from three smiling emojis to a butterfly with its wings flapping.
