Disney files patents to use drones at theme parks

The "Happiest Place on Earth" is about to get even better.

The world-renowned theme park has filed three patents to use drones inside the park, according to Market Watch

The unmanned aerial vehicles, commonly known as drones, are usually used for military and special organization operations.

Disney has so far listed three uses for them in their parks. 

The drones are to be used with floating pixel displays, which will mimic traditional fireworks, airborne devices much like floats that appear in street parades, and for floating projection screens.

Disney is calling these firework substitutes, "fixels," which is meant to be a play on fireworks and pixels, according to Tech Crunch

With the patent, Disney says they can offer their guests an upgrade in their entertainment capabilities and improve their safety by replacing often-dangerous fireworks.
