Did you know that the sky over Walt Disney World in Orlando and Disneyland in Anaheim is considered “national defense airspace” and that violating the no-fly zone could result in interception, interrogation and federal prosecution?
The restrictions were supposed to be temporary, but the Los Angeles Times reports that they’ve been in place since 2003 (when they were slipped into a congressional spending bill prior to the Iraq war). Similar parks including Universal have no such no-fly zones. While they may appear to be post 9/11 safety precautions, it seems that they are actually meant to combat aerial advertisers.
