Two other patents deal with flying visual displays. One, titled "Aerial display system with floating projection screens" is pretty self-explanatory. Another is for an "aerial display system with floating pixels," of "flixels" which would turn the sky or some other airspace into a display "screen."
But just because Disney patented these drone-driven devices doesn't mean they'll be used in Disney parks or other venues anytime soon. Companies patent technologies that never come to fruition all the time, either because they simply want to lay claim to an idea rather than deploy it or because the technology turns out to be too complicated or costly to execute at the time.
The Federal Aviation Administration is working on rules for commercial drone use. While all the patent filings mention the need for safety features, the manipulation of giant marionettes and droves of flying screens or "flixels" in close proximity to huge crowds of families seems like exactly the kind of use that might raise concerns from regulators.
