Disney and the Airlines

Delta is the official airlines of Walt Disney World, but only one of their planes is especially painted and it’s boring.

Yawn.

Yawn.

In 2013, WestJet unveiled their newest custom-painted aircraft called the “Magic Plane” featuring Mickey Mouse in his famous role, Sorcerer Mickey. You can follow its travels using the #MagicPlane hashtag.

“On the right, we have an authentic piece of Disney history. That Gulfstream 1 was known in airports across the country as November Two Three Four Mickey Mouse. But we just call it The Mouse.

In 1964, Walt Disney and his hand-picked team used this plane to scout locations for what he called the ‘Florida Project’. Soon, they secretly began purchasing thousands of acres of land, which became the Walt Disney World Resort in 1971. During the creation of the resort, and later Epcot, The Mouse shuttled studio executives and Imagineers between Burbank and Orlando making it the most-used executive aircraft in the country. Appropriately, The Mouse retired here in 1992.

As Walt used to say, “It was all started by a mouse”—in this case, the Two Three Four Mickey Mouse.”

We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program (Fall 2013/Spring 2014) and have written a book about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.
We included advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship, and how not self-term before your program ends. Our book is filled with lots of behind-the-scene stories of the magic of Disney.
Available now at Amazon.com in paperback and Kindle formats. Published by Theme Park Press.
