No-Fly Zones Over Disney’s Orlando & Anaheim Parks – Don’t Violate Mickey’s Airspace!

by Adam

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.

Check out the interesting read from the LA Times here.

I completely support Disney’s no fly zone. I grew up in Orlando and have been going to Disney World my entire life. The only banners I have ever seen flown over or near Disney are very offensive and against a majority of guest’s opinions. I’m all about freedom of speech, but using air space to advertise for bigot organizations and causes should not be allowed (nor should any advertising). Air Space isn’t meant for advertising, it is meant to allow planes to fly from point A to B.

Considering Disney is very protective of its brand, I’m not surprised if they have their backers in DC to slip in the restrictions without anybody else noticing.

Don’t forget that mice are people too, and this mouse has more rights than you.
