There are more amazing sights to see at Walt Disney World than state-of-the-art attractions and breathtaking shows. Soon, you’ll be able to witness a piece of U.S. history when the Blue Angels take flight above one of the Walt Disney World theme parks.
That’s right! The U.S. Navy Blue Angels are scheduled to fly over Walt Disney World this week. If you’re planning on visiting Epcot on Thursday, May 2, you’ll be able to witness some of the best pilots in action as they fly over Spaceship Earth, one of the most recognizable and iconic attractions in all of Walt Disney World.
The U.S. Navy Blue Angels will make two passes over Spaceship Earth this Thursday in honor of Military Appreciation Month, which we honor in the U.S. throughout the month of May. Disney shared that if you want to ensure you have an excellent viewing area during the flight, be sure to stand in between Spaceship Earth and the entrance to the World Showcase.
After flying over Epcot, the Blue Angels will continue their journey all the way to the air show in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. So if you don’t plan on being in Epcot but you’ll be on Walt Disney World property on May 2, be on the lookout for your chance to see these beauties while they’re in flight.
This isn’t the first time the Blue Angels have greeted Disney guests by flying over the theme parks. Want to know what to expect when you see the Blue Angels soar over one of the Walt Disney World theme parks? Check out our video of these historic planes flying over Magic Kingdom two years ago:
If you won’t be in Walt Disney World during the Blue Angels’ flight, Disney will be sharing the event on Disney Parks Blog. Be sure to visit the official website on May 2 if you want to see images or video of the flight.
